Buying Bathroom Mirrors From Big Box Stores
At Deslaurier Custom Cabinets, we know that there’s not a one-size-fits-all mould when it comes to crafting the perfect design.
You can absolutely buy your bathroom mirrors from large home improvement retailers and interior design stores like Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, Lowe’s, and IKEA.
Box stores like these buy in bulk to offer lower prices. That can be a pro (you can keep your costs down) or a con (the company's focus may be on moving inventory).
If you are shopping for a powder room or smaller bathroom, and you aren’t picky about your mirror choice, a big box retailer would certainly have a bathroom vanity mirror for you in-stock.
On the other hand, if you want the perfect mirror for your unique bathroom design, or have a large master ensuite that needs a custom sized mirror, going with one of the local retailers listed above will benefit you with their industry knowledge and personalizable inventory.
