Paint color can magically transform any room, altering the experience of being in that room for better or worse. There is nothing simple or easy about chosing a paint color – which is why many people leave it to the experts- the subtle nuances can be frustrating for those who don’t want to be bothered with the complexities of pigment, light, hue, paint quality or color theory.

A few creative bathroom mirrors to consider if you are ready to step outside of the predictable box:
This mirror is shown with front and back views so you can see the hidden storage it offers. Very sleek and if two mirrors are used side by side, the look is sensational. The mirrors glide out gracefully to reveal the contents stored on the backside. Can be wall mounted or recessed into the wall.
Or, you could forgo the mirror and just tile the walls floor to ceiling in these gorgeous mirror tiles. These specific ones are well suited for both commercial and residential use, in that they are not susceptible to the problems of cracking that standard mirror presents. Definitely a creative bathroom mirror, and great to enlarge a small space.
