Bathroom Vanity Mirror: How to Choose the Best Size for Your Vanity

>>Randy: Hello, my name is Randy Ritzenthaler
and I’m with R Squared Renovations, we are a Dallas Texas general contracting company. Today I just want to give you a few pointers
on sizing mirrors, vanities and light fixtures. Getting them all to gel together and look
decent. A couple rules of thumb, when you have a small
vanity, just a single sink up to about 30 inches, your mirror and light fixtures could
be just a few inches narrower then the vanity itself. Just to keep everything in proportion. The mirror and the light fixture can almost
be the exact same size. Generally you’ll find something about 24 to
30 inches wide you can find a light fixture that would be somewhere in the same ballpark. When you get into a larger vanity say 5 foot
even if it’s just a single sink 5 foot vanity, I think a good rule of thumb is to have your
mirror about two thirds the size of the vanity. The light fixture could also be a little smaller
then the mirror. Proportionately you could go two thirds on
the mirror, and two thirds on the light fixture. When you get into larger double vanities,
you have to make the decision if you want to go with two mirrors and two light fixtures
or one large mirror, generally you want to put two light fixtures up centered over the
sink bowl. You can take the information from a single
vanity and apply it to a large double just to keep everything in proportion. If you have mirrors that you are dividing
you’d like to have equal space on both sides of the mirrors and usually about half the
width of the mirror in between the two. Just a few things to help you make a decision
on lights, mirrors, and vanities. if you have any other questions I can be reached
