Mirrors & Windows

Recently I designed a Master Bathroom where I removed the bath-tub and designed in its place a new, spacious, sit-down vanity for the Lady of the House.  With the bathtub gone, the large window on the wall behind it was now presenting new design dilemmas – how would I mount a mirror in front of this huge window (and 10 ft ceilings), how would I light the mirror so that at night make up could still be applied, and how would I keep a natural light coming into the room without it being too bright?  Ultimately we decided to move the window up, and do a framed mirror on the new wall, but these images I complied present an interesting scenario for the bathroom…mirrors mounted in front of windows.

I just love that bathroom from the Coastal Living home in the first photo! I’ve come across this same problem with some of my clients, but never considering doing this…might have to now. It does look nice!

Those are just beautiful! I’m not sure if I would have thought of that! Such great light to put on your make-up!

The Gentlemen’s restroom looks like it would be in a cologne advertisement or in a prestigious country club. I love the flocatti rug and the wall mounted TV in the metropolitan home picture. How often do people have their mirrors installed in front of windows? Keep up the great posts!
