Are these mirrors going to look great or too heavy?

ksoorus123January 17, 2013
Just got the new vanity and I can't decide on the mirrors. Do they look elegant or heavy? The fixtures in the tub and shower are bronze. Should I put em up or take em back? If take em back..suggestions please!

I not as concerned about heavy appearance as I am about how high they will need to be mounted above the rear back splash. Typically you want to leave a reveal of an inch or more between the top of the back splash and the bottom of the mirror. Can you do this and fit it under the light fixture and have an acceptable view of yourself?

I do not think they will look too heavy for the space, at all.

As long as you have appropriate clearance space on top and bottom - love, love, love these!

Love the mirrors they just need to be mounted with the bottom covering some of that back splash.

I am probably really close to 1". I will measure when I get home. Great advice. If not I will have to go thinner...but the same bronze color, right?

I think they look great, not too worried about how heavy. The look appropriately sized to with the dimensions of your bathroom, obviously just eyeing it.

I'd say go with it!

They look good, but don't crowd them and don't hang them over the back spalsh. That will look like you forced them to work.

Same here, they work if you have enough clearance. I would try and add contrast with the accessories - avoid going bronze all the way.

They look nice...not too heavy. How high you're going place them? If you're going for higher, you could do a slight tilt down.

You may have to mount them horizontally instead of vertically with that big backsplash but they look good to me!
