Frequently Asked Questions

What size should my bathroom mirror be?

We suggest for your bathroom mirror or shaving cabinet to be slightly smaller than the size of your vanity if your vanity is over 600mm.

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the size of your bathroom mirror and shaving cabinet. It depends entirely on your personal preference, the size and shape of your bathroom.

Many people opt for a large bathroom mirror, sometimes taking up most of the space on a wall. This has a number of benefits, including making your bathroom look bigger, by reflecting more light around the room.

IAnother great option for double vanties is to have 2 smaller mirrors or shaving cabinets above each basin.

How do I choose a bathroom mirror?

A bathroom mirror or shaving cabinet can be a key feature in your space. Firstly, think about the design of your bathroom — is it modern or more traditional? You need to choose a mirror that coordinates well with the style of the room.

Also consider who uses the bathroom and how they use it. Do you need a backlit mirror for makeup or a flexible mirror for shaving? If the bathroom needs more storage space, you might want to choose a mirrored cabinet instead of a single mirror.

Once you have an idea of the type of mirror you need, take a look at our range of bathroom mirrors and choose a design that appeals to you on all levels.

Are there special mirrors for bathrooms?

What is the difference between a mirror and a shaving cabinet?

A bathroom mirror is a mirror that sits flush against the wall and is available with demisters, frames and frameless options.

A bathroom shaving cabinet is a mirror that has hidden storage behind. This is a great option for an ensuite or family bathroom where you have an abundance of daily products that you need at your fingertips. You can never have enough storage in the bathroom.


What is a frameless mirror?

A frameless mirror is a mirror where the glass extends to the edges of the object. Without a border, these mirrors have a clean, minimal look.

An alternative to a frameless mirror, is a mirror with a frame around the edge, which you can match the frame colour to your tapware and bathroom accessories.

Can you recess a shaving cabinet?

Some shaving cabinets can be recessed into the wall so it appears to be just a mirror at face value, but then opens up to a storage space.

It is best to check with your builder that this is possible in your space.

What is the best way to clean your bathroom mirror?

For best results, clean mirrors using methylated spirits and water at a ratio of 30% methylated spirits and 70% water. DO NOT use harsh chemical cleaning products. Avoid getting water on the back and sides of the mirror as damage to silver backing can occur. In coastal areas it is recommend wiping around the edge of the mirror once a month to avoid salt build up that can cause silver creep.

What do I need to know about backlit mirrors?

Back-Lit Mirrors usually feature either a back box which is screwed to the wall and then the mirror hung on the front using hooks secured to the mirror. LED models include a 12 volt transformer in the unit and fluorescent light models connect directly to 240 volt. Wiring is usually through the centre of the back box and needs to be hard wired to a switch in the room, either in the light switch panel or centre of the power point. The use of Back-Lit Mirrors in your bathroom gives an added ambience to the room and also allows you to leave the energy efficient lights on during the night as a night light in the bathroom. Our back-lit mirrors are compatible with our de-misting pads.
