Just getting opinions. We are building, and the master vanity (two sinks) is 62 inches wide, which means the two 21” wide sinks will be very close together. I like the look of separate, framed mirrors over each sink, but I’m thinking they may have to be hung so close together it’s going to look odd, and just sticking with a single 62” wide plate glass mirror (unframed) will look better in this case. What do you all think?

I'd say for looks AND ease of cleaning, one large mirror is better in your case where your sinks are close together. IMO, beveled glass gives mirrors a touch of class.

We have a large mirror now and I find it challenging to get it streak free.
Our new build has 2 separate mirrors (framed) and I like the look.
The frames break up the monotony of the glass.

Maybe I am just territorial

Two mirrors.

If you want to make their closeness less obvious, choose mirrors without a frame.

Or maybe do something like this.

I like the look of 2 mirrors too and used them in the Master. Mine are round, I think if you used unframed oval mirrors that just had a beveled edge you could make it work.

Depending on the style of the bathroom, I think two oval, beveled mirrors without frames could look really classy.

I have a question for the forum - is there something uncool about a large, framed mirror? I am asking because it's easy to order frames for one large mirror, in a variety of colors and styles and finishes.

I've seen some really nice large framed mirrors over a dual vanity. This one looks good. What I really don't like is when builders just slap a mirror over the vanity, it looks unfinished.

I think if you were to do one large sheet mirror I would have it framed. Another thing I would do to break up the sheet of mirror and give the illusion of two mirrors without the repetitiveness of actually having two in a short space is to install sconce lighting onto the mirror at the Center division point between the sinks. If you have the room I would do it on either end as well.

The photo I posted didn't show up in the post above.

It was a vanity with two sinks and a narrow set of built-in shelves between the sinks, with two separate mirrors. The two sinks were pretty close together, but the shelves separated them.
