If there’s a hidden cabinet behind the mirror, even better, as one large mirror will double the storage space. In this bathroom designed by Arent & Pyke, the simple bronze frame of the mirror highlights the other shimmery details throughout, and pops against the dark gray grooved drawers and black sconces.
