Washroom Mirrors FAQs
How to stop a bathroom mirror from steaming up
Commercial bathroom mirrors can fog when steam (caused by the running of hot water) condenses on the mirror. Whether hot water from taps or showers are causing your washroom mirrors to steam up, you can prevent this by ensuring your facilities have adequate ventilation and extractor fans.
How to stop a bathroom mirror from rusting
Washroom mirrors can rust over time due to excess moisture and dampness in the air - especially the mirror’s frame. It’s the silver nitrate around a mirror’s frame which is prone to rusting. You can stop your commercial bathroom mirrors from rusting by avoiding using ammonia-free cleaning products, keeping mirrors dry and managing the humidity levels in your washroom and installing an extractor fan.
If you find it difficult to remove the rusting on your mirrors, it could be worth replacing them to ensure your washroom looks attractive and professional.
Are bathroom mirrors different to normal mirrors?
Yes, commercial bathroom mirrors are different to normal mirrors in a number of ways, including:
They’re typically made from materials that are more likely to resist rust. The frame material of standard frames can rust over time due to moisture in the air. For example, silver nitrate is a material that can deteriorate.
Bathroom fittings and furnishings must meet safety standards.
Many commercial washroom mirrors are made from tempered glass as it is considered to be a safer option. This is because when it’s broken, it will break into rounded shards (opposed to sharp, pointy ones).
How to remove stains from a bathroom mirror
Calcium deposits and limescale are the most common types of stains you can expect to find on your commercial bathroom mirror. You can find cleaning solutions which are designed specifically for use on mirrors (and don’t contain ammonia which can damage its surface). Alternatively, vinegar can be effective in removing stains. Whichever solution you opt for, you should use a soft cloth to wipe the mirror (this will help to prevent scratches).
What height should a bathroom mirror be?
Ideally, a commercial bathroom mirror should be eye-level for most users, which is approximately between 5 and 10 inches above the washroom sink.
Where to place a mirror in a bathroom
Commercial washroom mirrors are typically fixed to the wall above vanity units. You should ensure that the mirror is not placed directly in front of pipes or wiring. If you need to install a mirror that requires plugging into the mains supply, it’s best to hire a professional to fit this in for you.

Should mirrors be centred over bathroom sinks?
Typically, mirrors are centred over bathroom sinks and measure several inches less than your vanity area. This is considered to be the ideal location for washroom mirrors as it’s a practical position for users to look at their reflection.
In some cases, this placement may not be possible (i.e. if you have a window directly behind your basins). In this case, you could consider fixing the mirror beside the basin in a corner that is accessible to washroom users.
What size should a bathroom mirror be?
Your commercial washroom mirror shouldn’t be wider than your vanity unit and will ideally measure several inches less. If you’re looking for a new bathroom mirror, you should firstly measure your vanity unit to determine which size mirror is best for your needs.
