Shower Mirror

DH likes to shave in the shower. Over the years we have hung shower mirrors from the shower head. We have to replace it every two to three years, and frankly, it never looks very good. Do others have a mirror in your shower?

We have one that has suction cups on the back that attach to the wall. It has a nice size mirror on top then a small basket (big enough for a can of shaving cream), a razor hook and wash cloth hook underneath it. The finish is a venetian bronze-y color that coordinates with our plumbing fixtures in the shower so it looks like it "goes" with the rest of the shower. The mirror always seems to get water spots even though water never directly hits it. Is that what you mean by your mirror never looking good? Or is it more a design thing?

RE: Shower Mirror

Thank you for the response. "Never looking good" - in part it has usually been a cheap white plastic frame, and after a few months the mirror starts to "go". Suction cups sound like a possibility and something besides white plastic would be nice. Do you know where you got yours?

I got ours at Target. I don't know if they still have the bronze-y colored ones, but I have seen the shiny chrome and the satin nickel. I did a quick search on Target.com and here's what I found that's similar:

Generally, they have more in the store too. As spring is starting, I would expect to see their selection grow at least temporarily as weveryone gets the spring cleaning/spruce-up bug.

Hope this helps!

I have been shaving in my shower for 20+ years and have never used a mirror to do so. I'd suggest he try without one to start with :) If I miss a spot I just tidy myself up over the sink.

What about installing a wall-mount mirror like this one? (I have no idea whether this would hold up in the shower, but it is made by a plumbing/faucet company, so perhaps.)

Clear Mirror make a kit that you put into the wall flush with the tile.

They are $$$, about $300-$400 and require a lot of planning and precise tile work or it will be a disaster.

I would not put one in a steam shower either.
