The best bathroom mirrors to suit you and your space can be hard to find. Whether you want a vanity mirror with a backlight, LED lighting to highlight your face when you need it, or just a simple mirror to rely on that won't warp in the humidity of the bathroom it's sometimes hard to choose.
A good rule of thumb is to go with a mirror that is just an inch or two short of the width of your sink unit. Some people do prefer to go for a mirror that is flush with the width of the vanity unity but that is a personal preference and can be hard to find something that fits perfectly. You might also want a piece that complements your bathroom shelves or bathroom storage, also.
We reviewed 15 bathroom mirrors, some of which are so pleasantly designed that they'll fit in other rooms than the bathroom. We found tilting mirrors, wooden framed mirrors, those with powerful lighting and subtle back lighting, and some that are basically designed yet still make a statement.
Here are our findings to help you make the best choice for your space and below you will find some tips and FAQs if you are in the search for a new or replacement mirror that will give you ideas on what's stylish and on-trend, or timeless and classy.
The Best Bathroom Mirror
Frame 26.8″ x 20.5″
Weight 8.92 lbs
Color dark brown
To start, the Unclutterer’s best choice is the Homfa Bathroom Wall Vanity Mirror with Hanging Hooks which has a simple design and fits in with the majority of bathroom decor. Even if you have the on-trend greys, it will fit in with its dark coloring. It comes at a really good price and we found it’s style modern yet basic. It is built with hooks that are ready to mount on your bathroom wall, and three small hooks to the bottom so you can hang small and lightweight items onto it, keeping things like a loofa or a face cloth handy. It feels lightweight but good quality and it is only made from MDF. A few screws were missing so it’s worth noting that you might need to have a couple to hand, just in case.
3 hooks for face cloths / light bathroom accessories
Hooks for vertical hanging
May not like MDF
Frame 24″ diameter
Weight 22.2 lbs
Color white or black
If you’re looking for a neatly designed vanity mirror for the bathroom or powder room the ISTRIPMF 24″ LED Lighting Round Bathroom Mirror seems like a good choice, although depending on your budget it does come in at a mid-range price. While there are budget options, this is styled nicely and the illumination makes a difference especially when you want to focus on your face or hair when getting ready. It’s worth noting that the lights are backlit so they are more ambient than bright. The LED two-color lights work well in a humid environment and should last a long time without the need for ever replacing the bulbs.
Batteries not required
Smart touch switch
Plugs into mains
Need an electrician
Difficult to install if you’re not used to drilling fittings
Frame 24″ x 36″
Weight 23 lbs
Shape rectangular/curved corners
Material stainless steel
We tested this 24 inch by 36-inch ANDY STAR Stainless Steel Bathroom Wall Mirror although there is a smaller version available if you lack in space or need two for above ‘his and hers’ or dual sinks. But you don’t have to limit this one to just a bathroom, it does work well in any space. With its modern design, it would fit anywhere like a bedroom, entrance hallway, studio, or study. The ANDY STAR mirror is available in three other colors – bronze, silver, and gold.
It’s also EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certified which means it is approved to meet with standards aimed at protecting the environment. It comes with fittings and can be hung from its pre-installed D-ring.
Two-inch recessed frame
Need a strong wall for hanging
Frame 22.8″ x 26″
Weight 9 lbs
Shape oval, frameless
Material mirrored glass
Chrome or nickel brackets
This Moen Glenshire 26″ Frameless Pivoting Bathroom Tilting Mirror is an oval-shaped mirror and we found it perfect for those looking at a vanity mirror that comes within a mid-range price and it looks great. The nickel or chrome brackets allow the mirror to slightly tilt down or up so it makes it ideal for facial self-care like shaving or applying creams and makeup. The only thing that the team wanted to mention was perhaps that its all-mirrored surface can attract water spots which, if they aren’t attended to right away, can leave limescale marks from water splashes – especially for those in hard water areas.
All fittings and hardware for fixing are supplied with the package, and the template enables you to mount the mirror neatly.
Easy to hang
Nickel or chrome brackets
No signs of tempered/safety glass
Frame 22.4″ x 26.8″
Weight 10 lbs
Material painted MDF
Homfa White Frame Bathroom Wall Mirror with Shelf is the Unclutterer teams’ budget pick and we think you’ll like the simple white country style. It comes with fittings so that you can wall mount it, and the glass itself is nice and reflective without distortions. We like that it has a good and deep shelf, almost 4.7 inches deep to the bottom of the mirror so you can pop and store small bits on there.
Hang it vertically for best fit into even drywall. It’s been well made and, at its affordable low-price range, looks really good in a bathroom or powder room.

Frame 30″ x 20.25″
Weight 13.7 lbs
Material: promised that it’s stone
The Stone & Beam Modern Round Arc Iron Hanging Wall Mirror is a big mirror and looks good in any bathroom. Its shelf works well with humid conditions. And you can wall mount it with the fittings that are supplied. We liked that it had a small shelf so could put little things like your manual or electric toothbrush or a few decorative items on there.
Looks good and had a ledge
Some reviews for exchange are poor
Look out for warped wooden frames
Frame 24″ diameter
Weight 11.3 lbs
Material stainless steel
We liked the thin black metal frame and the circular shape which seems to fit in most rooms. We didn’t like that it is static so doesn’t have a tilt but then we realized that it will fit in spaces that aren’t limited to the bathroom. HBCY Creations Rustic Accent Mirror For Bathroom is pretty lightweight and easy to hang, and we found it was delivered safely.
Excellent % of positive reviews
Heavy, will need two people to hang
Some reviews report a dented mirror
Frame 40″ x 20″
Weight 31.5 lbs
Material aluminum alloy
This is the Keonjinn 40″ Backlit Anti-Fog Bathroom Mirror and it comes at a high-end price. It does come in other sizes ranging from 24 inches x 36 inches up to 55 inches x 36 inches and we tested this size. The rectangular shape means that you can hang it horizontally or vertically and it promises to be crafted with anti-fog glass which usually means that it’s also fingerprint-proof – and that you don’t have to wipe it down after bathing or showering.
We liked the backlighting which provides quite a good light in the bathroom or powder room. The light works simply by touching the subtle switch on the mirror as, once it is professionally fitted, it will remain in standby mode.
Great LED backlit feature
Multiple sizes available
Need an electrician/professional to fit
Frame 20″ x 28″
Weight 6 lbs
Material polished glass
There are circular and oval options if you aren’t looking for the rectangular shape and size that we tested. The KOHROS Rectangle Beveled Polished Frameless Bathroom Mirror is polished glass and looks pretty classy and all do have a beveled edge. We think that a major advantage of having a frameless vanity mirror is that you don’t have to match it to anything else in your space.
The Unclutterer team did think that the KOHROS sat great between or underneath some wall lights. It’s of simple design and comes with all the fittings needed to hang it vertically or horizontally. Of course, you might need wall plugs that suit delicate walls.
Common shape fits most spaces
Multiple sizes and shapes available
Beveled edge looks tidy
In the mid-price range, are cheaper versions available
Should be fitted by a pro as fittings are difficult to manage
Frame 26″ x 25″ (smaller size available)
Weight 21 lbs
This one we liked and chose it as our best value at pretty much a mid-price range. The Tangkula Bathroom Cabinet With Mirror and Shelving is pretty much good for popping medicines and showering items inside whilst having a mirror, two or four internal shelves, and six shelves at each side. There is another model available with just two shelves if you have taller items to store.
It’s a great space saver and assembles easily plus being fairly priced.
Mirrored with internal and external shelves
Best above the WC
Needs sturdy fittings
Ensure you get the shelving promised in the listing
Frame 24″ x 36″ (alternative sizes available)
Weight 21 lbs
Color white frame
The Unclutterer team loved BATH KNOT Black Framed LED Lighted Bathroom Mirror. It’s backlit and has a dimmer switch so you can control how bright or dimly lit you want it (two modes, light and dim), and it’s easy to use with the round control that just needs you to keep your finger on it for three seconds. We reviewed the small-sized mirror although there are another four size options if you prefer something larger, you’ll have to be quick as these seem to sell out very quickly.
We think that you might like the fact it has an anti-fog button which eliminates the need for cleaning and wiping every time you have a shower, and it gets rid of the chance of getting fingerprints all over it too.
Two year limited warranty
Available in five sizes
Well packaged in transport for delivery
Beautiful, thoughtful design
It’s heavy so two people to install recommended
Frame 24″ diameter
Weight 10 lbs
Material rubber framed
There are five color options with this cute rounded bathroom or powder room mirror, plus a frameless option should you prefer it to go with any type of decor. The Better Bevel 24” Black Rubber Framed Round Mirror is pretty lightweight and easy to wall mount in any space, and there are slightly smaller and larger options available – the smallest being 18 inches in diameter, and the largest is around the average size of 36 inches diameter.
It’s a really stylish option and we found it was great for the lower budget. The rubber frame makes it easy enough to wipe clean and the mirror itself isn’t distorted as some cheaper options might be. It comes well packaged with all the fittings needed to hang on standard plasterboard or drywall. We’d just make sure to say that you have the right wall plugs although, because it’s lightweight, it should hang neatly.
Modern and stylish
Great vanity mirror
Rubber makes the frame color dull/matte
Potential for the rubber frame cracking over time
Frame 32″ x 24″
Weight 10 lbs
Material rubber framed
Our premium pick of the 2020 review line up is the HAUSCHEN 32″ LED Bathroom Wall Mounted Mirror which is certainly for those with a higher budget. It is super slim and can be connected by a professional electrician directly to the light switch so that it turns on when the rest of your lights do. The LED lights are controlled directly, are long-lasting, and do illuminate the bathroom perfectly for applying makeup or attending to your face and hair close up without the need for the main lighting.
It comes with all the fittings needed for wall mounting either vertically or horizontally and, with four sizes available, you can choose up to a 36 inch by 48-inch option.
Eco-friendly and copper-free
Smaller size is probably best for powder room not main bathroom
Frame 28″ (diameter)
Weight 13.6 lbs
Material glass with slight beveled edge
Color mirrored glass/silver
A good, on-the-nose budget mirror, we reviewed the NeuType Frameless Beveled Round Bathroom Mirror which is fairly minimalist and looks good and shiny in any bathroom or powder room. Frameless mirrors like this are a popular choice and the rounded design highlights any decor without taking away from stunning wallpaper or tiled/painted wall design.
There are three other sizes, up to 30 inches in diameter if you prefer a larger mirror and 24 inches diameter if you need a smaller model, perhaps in the powder or dressing room.
A popular circular choice
Easy to mount

The KAASUN 40″ Touch Switch LED Bathroom Vanity Mirror came in at a mid-range price, and we had to test it. It’s backlit which provides you with illumination in the bathroom so you don’t have to pop the main lights on when you use it, great if you have a shower room right next to your bedroom. We thought you might like the anti-fog feature which is used simply by pressing a button so that you don’t have to wipe and get it smeared so that you can use it almost instantly.
Because of the backlighting, this model should be installed by a qualified electrician but once installed this is a must-have.
A number of sizes available
If you want a dimming light then go for something else

Features To Consider With Bathroom Mirrors
Finding a feature mirror that fits your established bathroom appearance, your bath trays or shower caddies is sometimes difficult when you are quite specific on your design and exactly how your bathroom mirror should function.
Perhaps you have plenty of lighting and simply want a mirror that won't buckle or ruin within the humidity of your bathroom? Maybe you would like all-dancing features like back-lighting, anti-fog features, and those with cabinet space if you are a bit short on floor room?
We know certain features matter and they're individual to everyone's needs. Here are a few tips on a few features that we found to be pretty important when we tested our 15...
If you are short on space then a cabinet with shelving and a mirror might be your best choice. We featured some in our list including the Tangkula Bathroom Cabinet With Mirror and Shelving which came in at a mid-range price and features some really good shelving features both inside the bathroom cabinet and to each side. Those without cabinets are simply mirrors to enhance your space but we did like the idea of wall mounted cabinet storage as most of us don't have the floor space for additional cupboards.
A pre-framed mirror can be much easier to install than one without a frame, and if you're heavy-handed it can be harder to hang a frameless mirror. The decision is, which goes with your decor - and does the frame go with the style you want to achieve?
As bathroom mirrors are no longer a mere must for above the vanity unit, the style and design are equally as important as how well they function. A framed mirror might take a little more cleaning than a frameless one as there are more delves to get into whereas a frameless one needs a little more of a polish.
Vertical or horizontal? If you go with a rectangular shape you'll want to make sure it comes with the fittings and holes to ensure that you can do both, and most do. Circular mirrors, quite obviously, will come with fittings at one point and oval ones will usually state in the description whether you hang it horizontally, vertically, or can mount it either way.
The only difference is going to be the way the light fittings work if your chosen mirror is backlit at the front or back, and whether it needs hard-wiring or not.
Illuminated mirrors come in all shapes and sizes and should be ideal to light up the bathroom with an ample light that suits you or your family. Some backlit mirrors will come with more ambient lighting that doesn't affect your eyes like, say, a camera flash. Whilst some will be much brighter.
Subtle lighting gives you ambience whilst the brighter more front-lit lighting will allow you to use the mirror for more close-up facial and hair focus - great for applying makeup and carrying out hair removal and more close-up detailing.
There's a thing called 'too much' when it comes to being close up, but magnifying mirrors allow you to concentrate on the detail, so if grooming is what you need then a magnifying mirror option might be just the thing for you. If you have vision issues then the higher the magnification the better if you need close-up details.
If you need a magnifying mirror then the most popular when it comes to shaving or applying makeup will be an x5 strength although you can get much stronger for plucking hairs close up. An x10 magnifying mirror might be ideal if you have really poor sight and need to use the mirror from an arms-length.
Have a think about whether you want a mirror that magnifies or one that simply lights up your features so that you can focus on certain areas.
We think it goes without saying that the size of your mirror will depend on your space. Although we like the idea of going with two mirrors over the sink you might prefer one larger size that fits right across the vanity unit.
It's all in the style and what you want to achieve and, while you might want a backlit bathroom mirror with others by its side then go for the best quality that you can for the center and two smaller to complement the look on either side.
For that visual feel and the most useful, we'd definitely say go for one that extends the whole vanity unit so that you aren't limited when you're plucking, applying makeup, or doing anything else needing doing. But, whatever size that you opt for, it surely will provide your bathroom space with a little more style and should complete your space and complement your decor.
The weight of your chosen mirror is going to be important and mostly depends on 1. how strong your drywall is and 2. if you have someone to help you hang it.
It's perhaps not the weight that you might consider though, it's how it fits into your space and whether you need an electrician to fit it - upping the cost ten-fold.
A light mirror is just like fitting a pretty lightweight picture but a heavyweight one with cabinets, shelving, or lighting will be much heavier and of course need more hands and much more effort to fit it.
