Having spent most of their time in the backseat, round mirrors are definitely having a moment. With various incarnations popping up all over Pinterest and design feeds, (I’m sure you are familiar with the now iconic Tyler Hays Captain’s mirror with its luxe leather strap). It was only a matter of time before this micro trend popped up in the room we spend a good portion of our time in, the bathroom.
So why all the fuss?
Words: Tracey Warren
Composition – Rooms, in particular bathrooms, are for the most part composed of straight lines and right angles. A round mirror adds a new dimension of fluidity and offers a more organic feel, juxtaposing the harsh edges. A bathroom is also not a room you would expect to find a round mirror which lends it that much more impact.
Complement texture – Have a textured tile, exposed brick or detailed wall you are not sure what to with? A pencil edge mirror will offer a simple, clean design enhancing the space without making the room busy. As well as functionality, a round mirror will revitalise your bathroom keeping you stylish and very much on trend.
Oozing a minimalist charm, frameless designs are high-impact while conveying a fluid feel. It’s no secret mirrors can be used to add depth and life to a room whilst adding a sense of space. Want big impact? Nothing will have your guests gushing more than a large-scale mirror and the The Reflekta Round Mirror from Highgrove Bathrooms does just that, especially when doubled over ‘his and hers’ vanities.
Lastly, a well-placed mirror is like the addition of a scarf to an outfit. It will add life to a room and provide a chic high-impact finishing touch that has more oomph than your standard bathroom medicine cabinet.
