A bathroom mirror should be at about eye level, and certainly not above it. Ideally, the bathroom mirror is above the sink. When in doubt, gather a group representative of those who would be using the bathroom mirror. Find a spot that everyone is satisfied with. Try not to make anyone stoop or strain upwards to see anything in the mirror, but consider that kids will most likely grow, so plan ahead where it applies.

How high should you hang a mirror?

Depending on the location... a standard bathroom mirror should be placed with the top of the reflective surface around six to ten inches above eye level. On the back of a door or on an alternate wall: full length should have a five to eight inch clearance from the floor/trim while a 'portrait' mirror should be hung similar to bathroom guidelines. Decorative mirrors are completely up in the air depending on taste.
