There are any number of mirrors that would look good in your powder room. I'd go for something interesting, either in shape or finish. It will be important to get one just the right size, so plan on hanging it 3 to 4" above the splash and down 4" from the bottom of the light fixture. Measure that space, plus the available width (less 5" on each side). Then find a mirror that does not excede those measurements. If it's rectangular, please hang it vertically.

I love the Milling Road Mirror. The area is 4' wide from wall to wall and 43" high to bottom of light and this mirror is 42" high so it won't work. Thank you for the suggestions.

You could find that style of mirror in other sizes, I'm sure. I think it's gorgeous and would look good in your space. Go look on Overstock.com and see if you find one the size you need.

Here's a mirror with an interesting shape that is 37" high, a size that should fit.

Have you seen the Audrey mirror from Ballard Designs? http://www.ballarddesigns.com/audrey-mirror/mirrors/decorative-mirrors/12801?defattrib=&defattribvalue=&listIndex=4 I had the Medium size one in my bathroom in a previous house and mounted the longer side horizontally. It was lovely.

Hi dbee4958 & everyone! Hope you all are having a great weekend!

dbee4958 - would you mind telling the color and material of the sink and light fixture?

The tiles are variations of brown and beige, is that correct? And the wall where you are going to place the mirror - what color? It kind of looks yellow on my screen.

Is this new construction or did you have a mirror there that you no longer liked? If that latter, can you describe that mirror or post a pic?

Sorry for all the questions. We carry a lot of mirrors - this information would help me make some suggestions.

(Of course I always love Carolyn's suggestions & Geri, that Audrey mirror is nice too!)

I hope, essentials, that all your mirrors are shown on the houzz product listings. It would be great to have even more beautiful selections.

I would keep the mirror traditional to match the light fixture. The sink and tiles are so beautiful they already highlight the room very nicely.

Yikes, don't shoot me :>) I'm not loving your sconce. Love everything else, but the light looks too dark and small for the space.

No problem. I am not sure I really love it either but I picked it out of a catalog and it will to work for now. It looks lost without a mirror, and the area looks bigger than it actually is.

Hi dbee4958 & everyone!

dbee4958 - thanks for the info. I'll photoshop some mirrors into your picture to see if that helps your decision. It is not the perfect method but I find it helps a bit.

I'll be back tonight w some ideas! Hope everyone has a great day!

Hi dbee4958! So sorry - I ran out of time today to finish the photoshop. I did narrow down the choices from what we have & played around a little w/the photoshop to tell that round or rectangular would look best.

I'll be back w/the finished pics! If you find any elsewhere that you like and want to try, just upload them here.

Hi dbee4958! Any chance you could upload another picture of your bathroom from a little further away?

If you are up for some DIY ...I would make your own .... buy a cheap mirror from the thrift store or Ikea etc and build a frame from scrape wood pieces so that it looks hand made and aged...round would be nice.

Finally got a mirror, not sure I like the vase and flowers. Any suggestions to make this powder room warm instead of cold?

Actually, I like the way the vase works with the art right there. LOVE the mirror! Great choice with the faucets.

1. Daffodil mirror in a cocoa wood stain
2. Lan mirror in an ebony wood stain
3. Strip mirror in an ebony wood stain
4. Strip mirror in a cocoa wood stain

Is there a coordinating picture to go with the other one that could work over the toilet? Even though the toilet is not centered, I would center the art. Maybe only ONE toilet paper???

OR a darker brown floating shelf placed there, not too high and not to low, might work, too. Try another smaller vase there to tie in with the other one and maybe a rolled towel???

There isn't another picture to complement the one hanging. I bought that several years ago at Z gallery. I agree to remove the toilet paper (looks bad). Wouldn't a shelf look lost on that wall?

You could tape off where two shelves would go....do not stagger them....do not have them too low, either. See if the top shelf would be too high to be practical. You could put toilet paper in a basket, if the shelf would accommodate it and towels and wash cloths, too. Then a few pretty pretties thrown in.
