We began renovating our bathrooms in our home and the one thing that stood out or did no stand out was the mirror around the sink. As a travel writer, who gets inspired by things I see as I travel, I noted that our bathroom lacked depth.
As I stay in endless upscale hotels, one thing that I always am drawn to are bathroom mirror designs. It’s what truly accents the room, and adds ambiance. Simply put, I have been craving a framed bathroom mirror. Truth be told it s one of the simplest upgrades you can make in your bathroom, and the results are stunning!
5 Reasons To Frame Your Bathroom Mirror
How To Get Mirror Chic
The Frame You Order Matters
Now, what we did not do is go old-school and bust out our own frame. Hardly were we Mirror Chic when we started this process. Now we have learned a lot, yet, I would still not design my own, we found a pro online and they make it easy!
We have now ordered 2x with the same company. Why? Because the company we found offers designer-quality frames, without the huge price tags. Additionally, the company we chose does custom sizing because mirrors are NOT one size fits all!
Last, each frame has changed the appearance of our bathrooms and gives them the WOW factor we were seeking. Before we started the process we measured, and we ordered samples for only $1 each and Mirror Chic pays for shipping!
All of that is great, but what really matters is the owner of Mirror Chic, Jim. He will provide tips, tricks and go the extra mile with communication to make sure YOU are so happy with your mirror. That is what I like, and that is the kind of company we work with.
What Jim has is savvy, knowledge and talent and he lends it to you, as you need help. The installation is NOT hard, but sometimes you will have a question, and Jim is on it like White on Rice! Mirror Chic is Chic because of Jim.
1. Easy Bathroom Upgrade
Look at this mirror. The clips show, the edges are raw, and the vanity is so much nicer than it is. Blahhhhh. Your bathroom is begging for an upgrade, what might it look like if you did? I can show you but I have to prepare you, you are going to want this, so keep on scrolling. Big changes come with small DIY projects.
2. Framing Makes Your Mirror Look Like A 5-Star Hotel
3. De-Silvering Sucks
4. Staging Your Home
You might recall I said, “our new house” well, we moved. In our first home, we had to do a thing called staging to sell it. It is common practice, but done most effectively with some cosmetic changes. Our bathroom was a nice bathroom, large, and spacious, but it had no POP in it!
So, our solution was adding in a designer-quality frame which added the WOW Factor we needed. Prospective buyers were all commenting on how lovely the bathroom mirror was! You need an edge in today’s market so a simple DIY will get you that edge!
5. Your Bathroom Vanities
Curious as to wht you are looking at? If it is not blatantly obvious, an ugly, mirror without a frame. It has no game if you ask me, it s just sitting there, yet the vanity is gorgeous and strong. Until, it meets its match the Del Mar in Black And Silver. Suddenly it’s spanky and pops! Love it! Don’t you?
When you upgrade your bathroom furniture, you will notice that wood vanities are all rather snappy looking. The trend in bathroom vanities is towards sleek corners, strong looking vanities and beautiful counter-tops and hardware to match. Your mirror is not that, but you can get there fast!
All you have to do is find the color scheme and frame that matches your bathroom vanity and everything will come together! You will see that it looks so much better when it is all coordinated and the flow will appear better as well.
The Question You Have
Your one last question to me might be how to care for the frame and that is so easy to answer! Just treat frame as you would a piece of furniture, no chemicals, just dust off or wipe with lightly damp cloth. Everything about framing our mirror has been easy and I hope these reasons help to inspire you to get that WOW factor in your bathroom and get Mirror Chic too! ~ DANA XO
