A reflection of style

As discussed in our post on “How to master the black bathroom trend”,

Bathrooms are spaces that attract high lustre fittings. Use tap ware, shower screens and shower heads to create a harmony. The shine from metallic fixtures brings lighter tones and reflections of light into your bathroom.
A framed mirror allows you to coordinate your shower screen, hardware and mirror. This subtle addition of shine highlights, rather than detracts from, your overall design vision.

Our framed mirrors come in four finishes, polished silver anodised, matt natural anodised, powder coat white and powder coat ivory. Pivotech finishes are made to withstand the tough conditions of the bathroom and be resilient in a warm, wet, soap-filled environment.

Open things up

Give your bathroom the appearance of more space with strategically placed framed mirrors. The mirror reflects the room, creating the perception of room larger than it actually is. This is particularly true for a small, narrow bathroom. The right placement of the right mirror can make a small bathroom appear expansive.

Light effects

A Pivotech framed mirror reflects light. More light makes a room feel more airy and more spacious.

Using a mirror to double your bathroom lighting also helps you save on energy costs over using additional electric lights.

With decades of experience in designing and manufacturing bathroom products, our attention to detail and design sets us apart. This is particularly true with our mirror frames. Pivotech designs are understated and stylish, not fussy and over complicated.

Making your bathroom mirror work

Mirrors deliver a key feature in the design or redesign of any bathroom. When chosen and hung with intention, framed wall mirrors serve as an interesting and functional centrepiece, enhance lighting and create the illusion of space.

Be choosy

When selecting a new mirror for your bathroom, start with a few questions:

What size fits the space?

Mirrors deliver a lot of benefits, so you may feel an urge to go as big as you possibly can

What finish fits your design plan?

A frame finish chosen to contrast with the shower door, sink and and other bathroom hardware will add texture to the look. Whereas, a perfect match of finishes creates an elegant, spa-like sensibility.

Will one, two or three frames be better?

Particularly in smaller bathrooms, two or three mirrors may fit the space better and create a more interesting design element. You can also hang them on different walls to increase reflected light and the illusion of more space.

One large mirror draws the eye and fills a room with light. Consider hanging a smaller mirror on the wall opposite the large mirror. This helps to open up the space. For an interesting visual element, choose several small mirrors and hang them on the wall opposite the large one.

Bring it all together

The versatility of mirrors make them a way to give instant panache to a bathroom. They light up dark corners an add elegance to an area. By reflecting the movements and design elements around them, they even replace artwork. Incorporating fresh design ideas utilising bathroom mirrors enhances the appearance of large and small bathrooms. Choosing a mirror to coordinate with the style of your bathroom will add depth and dimension, creating a bright and fresh room.

“Raise the roof” with tall, slender framed mirrors

You know how choosing vertical details in your wardrobe prompts the eye to look up and down instead of side to side, helping create a taller, more slender appearance? The same is true for your bathroom. Vertical details in the bathroom accentuate ceiling height and help a small bathroom feel more expansive and luxurious.

Add decorative elements to the bathroom to encourage the eyes to move upward from the bath, sink and toilet.  Tall vases or plants, vertical tile designs and vertical paintings are possible choices. But, once again, the hero of the small bathroom is the elegantly framed mirror. Previous Pivotech blog posts have highlighted the ability of a framed mirror to create the illusion of space and increase the light in a small bathroom, but when you choose tall, slender mirrors you also lift the ceiling and inspire a feeling of space above.

Just like wearing a top or dress with horizontal stripes can section your body into blocks and make you appear shorter and wider, horizontally wide and vertically short framed mirrors chop the room height. Using horizontal lines and patterns won’t make the room look wider. In fact, horizontal patterns in a small bathroom can accentuate the lack of space. Big, wide mirrors have their place, but vertical mirrors, that reach to the ceiling, maximise space and result in that sensation of height.

If you’re fortunate two windows in your bathroom, a vertical line of mirrors in between windows will maximize natural sunlight and provide even greater space-defying visuals.

Mirrors, shower screen and bath panel hardware, and shelving hardware can be like bathroom wardrobe and accessory items; accessorize strategically. Mirrors offer a fantastic way to dress up a space; however you want to use them as you would elements in your personal wardrobe. Choosing vertical lines and a tall, thin mirror will help tap into unused space and make your small bathroom look larger and more chic.
