Two mirrors too much in this bathroom?

7 years ago


Small 8x5 master bathroom all in white tile

On far left: Combo tub/shower

In the middle: Kohler archer medicine cabinet (20"wx31"h) recessed over white godmorgon ikea vanity

Originally I had hoped to use the much larger Ikea godmorgon medicine cabinet, but it's too big to use with lighting above it due to my 7.5-ft ceilings. (long story, other thread here)

On the right: Toilet, and above it, (and here is my question): POSSIBLY, the Ikea Godmorgon medicine cabinet, measuring 23 3/4" wx37"h. I already assembled this and can only return for store credit, which is OK, but the storage is so fantastic that I sort of hate to return it. MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY: one of the reasons I wanted to use it was so that I could have plugs put inside it for my H's toothbrush and razor, because it has a wooden back! I can't do that with the Kohler over the sink, which has a mirrored back. This way I would still be able to get my hidden outlet and stash those things that need to charge out of the way!

So, what do you all say? Too many mirrors in such a small room? Too out-of-scale?

(Another potential option is that I did buy the white Godmorgon cabinet that matches my vanity, but I haven't assembled it yet. It's smaller, only 15"wide 37" high, but it wouldn't be another mirror at least... but I can also still return it for actual money back. Of course what I care most about is what will work and function and look best in the long run. Picture of that cabinet:)

This does not solve the problem of where I will store towels, since it will ruin my original plan to put a train rack over the toilet, but I'll deal with that later. At least I'd have the darned plugged in things taken care of ;-)
