Elevate the vanity area of your bathroom by placing waterproof wall panelling behind a circular mirror to offer a beautiful yet contemporary statement piece. The contrast of straight lines and the round edges of the mirror are an excellent way to add texture. Additionally, the mirror will offer the illusion of a larger and more open space, perfect for those smaller bathrooms with little light.
