How to Choose a Magnifying Makeup Mirror For Yourself
See yourself in the best light with a Magnifying makeup Mirrorthat’s properly sized, placed and illuminated
It’s easy to overlook a mirror. After all, when we look at one, we see a reflection of so many other things before we even see the mirror itself. But a good mirror is an essential component to bath rooms, especially your Magnifying makeup Mirror. There are many options for size, style and shape to choose from, so I’ve put together this guide to help you put things into perspective and get your bathroom mirror just right.
Sizing Your Mirror
When choosing the size of your mirror, you should consider not just function, but also proportion. To create a balanced look, think about the size of your mirror relative to that of your vanity.
Typically, vanity mirrors are not wider than the vanity itself, with some exceptions we will discuss a little later.
A common approach is to make the mirror exactly as wide as the vanity so the two line up perfectly.
Of course, this is much easier with a custom-sized mirror because you may not happen to find a pre-made mirror in the exact width of your vanity.
If they are not the same width, another solid approach is to make the mirror about 70 to 80 percent as wide as the vanity so the mirror appears a bit smaller, but not shrunken.
With respect to height, a functional mirror needs only to reach about a foot above and below the eye line of the people who will be using it. But the more height you can get, the better, because it will provide more viewing angles and a more open look to the space. Try to reach at least 4 to 7 feet above the floor.
