Trying to find the best vanity mirror that is going to fit just right and look just right is not an easy task.
And then, to add another dimension in the mix, it depends on what you want in a vanity mirror. Is it going to be used for decor? Or is it going to be used to apply makeup? Or both?
Well, first of all, our picks are suitable for makeup and decor. And choosing mirrors with both of these traits helped narrow down our picks.
However, there is another characteristic that is often overlooked when purchasing a mirror.
And that is quality. Mirrors can literally be funny if they’re cheaply made. And, we’re pretty sure you are not here to find a funny mirror.
Therefore, the cheaper the mirror, the more distorted the reflection becomes. So, we made sure to pick out mirrors that reflect the truest form of reality.
In the same token, if you’re looking for a mirror that is strictly for decor, cheaply made mirrors stand out like a sore thumb. And this is directly attributed to the poor reflection. In this case, you would be better off not having a mirror at all.
Quality is just as important as the esthetic look of a mirror and this is an absolute must when buying the best vanity mirror for any space.
So, to recap, here’s what we looked for when choosing the best vanity mirror:
When searching for the best vanity mirror, we took all of these aspects into account. Granted, not all of our choices are a one-size-fits-all solution, but they’re pretty close. And if one doesn’t work for you, we countered these with other options that will likely work in whatever space you may be looking to fill.
Now, if you’re looking for a smaller vanity mirror, something with magnification and/or lights, we found some gorgeous ones that you can browse through here.
