Keep functionality in mind when replacing bathroom mirror

Dear Gail: We’re going to be starting our bathroom remodel and would like some ideas regarding mirrors. We currently have the standard plate mirror you see everywhere, so we want to do something different. I know the big thing has been to use one over each sink, but we’re open to other suggestions. If we go that direction, do you have any guidance or other ideas to share? Thanks. — Ronelle

Less is more — until it isn’t

“Less is more,” a phrase from the 1855 poem “Andrea del Sarto, called ‘The Faultless Painter’” by Robert Browning. The phrase was adopted by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), American-German architect, as a precept for minimalist design.
