For over weeks she has been thinking to add some visual interest to her most favorite place in the house – her bathroom, but she doesn’t know how to do that.

To help her out, in this article, we have discussed how to decorate a bathroom mirror easily and effectively with minimal cost so that adding an interesting aspect in the bathroom never felt easier and quicker.

So without further ado, let’s start.

Mirror Frame

One of the most effective ways to upgrade your boring bathroom mirror into an interesting piece is by adding an attractive frame. There are several types of frames available in the market to choose from according to your bathroom decoration and mirror size. A good quality bathroom mirror is always decorated with luxurious frames and innovative features by default and you do not have to do anything extra with these products.

Here we have discussed some of the most popular frame ideas that can change the appearance of your bathroom vanity instantly.

Colorful Frames

The easiest way to add that oomph factor to your bathroom mirror is by adding some color to it and what’s a better way to add color than to enclose it inside a super colorful frame?

A colorful frame not only adds that oomph factor to your regular mirror but also provides an edge to an otherwise neutral bathroom. We would suggest you take risks and play with vibrant shades and creative shapes to make this fixture a lot more fun and whimsy.

Antique Frames

Not only the mirror, but you can also change the whole vibe of your bathroom by decorating it with an antique frame. An antique, year-old frame can add depth and dimension to your bland, regular piece of reflect panel like never before. Find vintage or antique frame full of history, charm, and a few beautiful imperfections to adorn your mirror with.

Ornate Frames

If you want something lavish and appealing in your bathroom, then the cleverest way to do that is by enclosing your bathroom mirror into an ornate frame. A sparkling ornate frame will not only add an edge to your regular lackluster mirror but will also turn your bathroom in an over-the-top glamorous space.

Sculptural Frames

When you have an artistic mind, then decorating the bathroom mirror is extremely easy. Add an eye-catching, sculptural frame to your mirror that would also double as a piece of art. With just this single change, you can completely alter the vibe of your restroom.

2. Add Lights to it

Another excellent way to turn your boring bathroom mirror into an over the top, sophisticated piece of vanity accessory is by illuminating it. A regular, simple bathroom can get a glamorous update by just adding the right amount of lights in it. A lighted bathroom vanity accessory not only upgrades it but also makes the viewing experience of the users even more delightful.

Let’s find out some of the easiest ways to decorate your bathroom mirror with lights.

Incorporate LED Light Strips

One of the easiest yet most effective ways to incorporate lights in your mirror is by adopting LEDs with the stick-on installation. With LED lighting kit, like this LPHUMEX Led Vanity Mirror Lights, you can effortlessly install bright lights to your mirror and turn it into an alluring vanity.

Turn it into a Hollywood Mirror

Another way to decorate your bathroom mirror with lights is by turning it into a Hollywood mirror. A Hollywood mirror is alluring; it lightens up the whole space and most importantly it doesn’t cut deep into your pocket to turn any regular bathroom mirror into a Hollywood one. We would suggest you purchase a self-adhesive set of bulbs like the Waneway Hollywood Mirror Light Kit to successfully turn your old piece of vanity accessory into a brand new Hollywood mirror.

3. Add Light Bulbs on the Top

If you are not comfortable incorporating lights in your bathroom mirror yet want to decorate it, then you can always add lights above or on the sides of this accessory. A perfectly placed bulb can completely change the way your mirror looks.

Bathroom mirrors are usually wall mount. If you want to spice things up and decorate it for a more interesting look, then you can try hanging it with a rope or wire- this will give a great visible attraction to the mirror as well as the bathroom itself.

Even though it might seem not a good idea to hang this glass accessory as it might fall down and break into million pieces, there are several safe and secure ropes and wires in the market that can hold it tightly in place.

Furthermore, to give the hanging mirror a Victorian vibe, you can always add plastic flower chains, leaves, and small trinkets on the rope and decorate it as much as you want.

4. Don’t Hold Back from Mix and Match

Another excellent way to decorate your bathroom mirror without much effort is by adding different styles and sizes of mirrors surrounding it. This amazing arrangement will give a gallery-wall-style vibe and would also lift the appearance of your otherwise regular mirror by several notches.

However, make sure to mix and match the mirror styles and shapes. Putting on the same size and shapes will not give you the look you are aiming for.

Wrapping Up

We are sure that by now you have got the perfect idea on how to decorate your bathroom mirror to make it more attractive and interesting. We would suggest you pick any one of these rather than try them all. all these methods tried in one bathroom might make the place busy and not so flattering.

    Now moving to the main article, I loved it as much as I loved the opening. It is just awesome.

It helped me a lot to understand the various aspects of decorating a mirror and how to add interesting features to it. Your writing style is very smooth and easy to understand.

    However, something caught my eyes. I noticed that you have used a very limited number of pictures in this article. Why is that? I think appropriate pictures add visual interest to the writing.
