There are many important things to consider when renovating your bathroom; poor planning and execution will ultimately just result in you or your living partner/s (if you have any) wanting to re-renovate before too long. Most people will get the more obvious things done in the right way, or a good enough way. Furnishing and fittings like the toilet, vanity unit and basin/s, bathtub, shower unit & towel rail. However it is probably more common than you would expect that hardly any thought or no thought at all will be given towards the bathroom mirror! So after going through all the time, effort and expense of redesigning and fitting all the new units into the bathroom, the misplaced, poorly-lit or wrongly sized mirror quickly gets all the attention for the wrong reasons. In many cases it can cause arguments between partners, with the woman in the relationship kicking up quite a fuss after coming to the realization that she can no longer spend hours pampering herself and perfecting her hair and make-up in what was once the best room in the home for that purpose.
So save yourself a lot of stress, pain and money by taking a little time to plan for the type of mirror you will be fitting & where in the room you will be fitting it. It will be certainly worth this little extra time and effort to avoid being one of the unfortunate percentage that finds themselves facing this type of dilemma after having created a bathroom that will aggravate and annoy their wife or girlfriend first thing in the morning, every morning and probably throughout the day and lastly every night before you both are getting in to bed. The things you should think about should be regarding the size of mirror you will purchase; analyse the space you have available in the bathroom and check on where the natural light is coming from for the most part of the day. Also with the lighting, you could also fit a light onto the actual mirror which is quite common; also a backlight can be used for more lighting effect. Think about comfort too; you want to position the mirror in a place that can be accessed for long periods of time in comfort – it is best if you also have a worktop type of unit just under where the mirror is hanging to the wall, as this will provide the much needed space for the variety of makeup and other toiletries. Try and get the largest mirror possible without going over the top and buying something that will look totally out of place, and remember that you can always get more than one mirror if the space allows for it.
