As far as bathroom trends go, we’ve seen it all: Floor-to-ceiling tiles, concrete basins, and an array of paint colors that go on to inspire. But one decorative staple within the space has yet to see much of a refresh. Well, that is, until now. 

While it may be a commonly overlooked piece, it has the power to completely transform the aesthetic of the room. No, we’re not talking about the tiling (although, some come pretty close) but, a more cost-effective swap that can really go the distance, design-wise. The item in question is the vanity mirror, and it’s not your standard wall-to-wall piece or basic medicine cabinet. 

We’ve seen a major uptick of bathrooms decked with oval mirrors—a welcome departure from the standard square variety we’ve come to be accustomed to—and needless to say, the look exudes pure elegance.

Ahead, we look to the bathrooms, which have successfully carried out the trend with effortless ease plus, a handful of tips for how you can recreate the look at home. Take a look.

Sure, the intricate and vibrant terrazzo backdrop may double as the focal decorative detail of this bathroom but there is no denying the allure of the equally stunning oval mirror. Framed by a thin, lustrous metallic edge, the piece beautifully complements the tonal properties of the sink’s fixtures as well as the saturated hues that fill the space.

It’s the seamless details of this frameless mirror that sets it apart from the rest. Its minimalist composition allows the piece to blend within its surroundings, regardless of what the room’s stylistic inclination may be. And for as simple and streamlined the mirror may be, it still manages to uphold a boldly-charged and dynamic pull within the decorative details of the room. 

Read on for the trendy mirrors we’re adding to our carts.
