10 Favorites: The Multi-Mirrored Bath

Issue 61 · Bath & Spa · February 27, 2013

After 20 years together, my husband and I have finally graduated to a bathroom with two sinks. Unfortunately the ugly, oversized mirror running the length of the wall between them reads like pulp fiction: "The Looking Glass That Ate My Bath." And so I've been researching more artful ideas for multiple mirrors.

Contemporary Bath by Wonder, Remodelista

enfilade mirrors: Remodelista

Above: I always love an enfilade. You can create this dramatic effect (seen here in a baths by Stine Langvad and Richard Powers) with mirrors placed on opposite walls.

Above: Placed over a horizontal sink, simple rectangular mirrors add a striking vertical element at Aperitivo Bar in Solvenia.

N.B. Great, so I've narrowed down the look I want. Now, where to buy the mirrors...
