What can I do with my bathroom mirror?

My powder room is small and on an angled wall.There is currently a 30 inch vanity and a 31 inch top. This does not leave enough room for an average person to walk in between the vanity and the door. There is the typical big mirror mounted to the wall.I really want to put in a smaller vanity but I'm looking for ideas on what I can do to the mirror to balance it out so the smaller vanity doesn't look like it was just thrown in the corner. Taking the mirror down is not an option right now. Here is a picture of what it looks like now.

    You can maybe add so stenciling using frosted glass spray paint around the edges of the mirror to give the mirror a smaller look.

    You could build a frame with wood trim and stain or paint to match your vanity. They make a 27 inch vanity (that will give you a little extra room by the toilet) and you can also get them 18 inches deep instead of the standard 24 inch. You will still have the 1 inch over hang on the outside sides. If you can, I'd do away with the thick slab backsplash, too.

    I agree with Shore grandmom. You can get vanities that are only 19" deep but are as wide as yours or less if you choose. And they still have some storage. Get one as wide as the mirror or smaller and center it under the mirror.

      I just watched a utube video where a gal found a removable, paintable wallpaper for mirrors! Turned out great. Just an idea! Good Luck!

    You could hang curtains over the mirrors.

    Curtains can be hung over the mirror and swag them back to make toe mirror look narrower to go with the vanity. Another idea would be to glue wood trim to the mirror in a color that would go with the new vanity. A pedestal sink or a rounded based one would also fit better and the width of the mirror would matter less.
