Would a mirror above this sink look weird?

Moving into a new property. Plan on retiling the bathroom but cant afford a brand new suite but its not in too bad nick. I hate the placement of the sink though as its slightly off centre to the wall/window
I would like a mirror above sink for obvious reasons. Would a slim one on the wall look ok or just highlight the problem more? Should i get one to the left of the sink instead?

I would get a mirror that is the same width as the wall space above the basin. I don’t think the off centred-ness of the basin matters too much.

I currently don’t have a mirror above my basin (there’s a window there) and it’s so annoying.

Thank you. I was wondering if i was being too pedantic grin little things like that bug me but maybe not quite so bad as having no mirror there at all

Simple cut mirrors can be cheaper than tiles. Would it work if you got one the same height as the window, almost like a continuation of the window frame? And as @Mamette said, the width of the space.
Or, get rid of the under sink unit which for me exacerbates the issue you have highlighted . And create some deliberate asymmetry in that space.

Would a mirror on each wall , a slim one in front of basin and a larger one on the other wall look good? Have them meet in the corner so they flow. Edge them with the same beading you put on the top/ edge of the tiles.

Yes good thinking the the cupboard underneath the sink. I was already planning to remove that, as im not a massive fan if those storage units anyway. Though you're right, it might be making the issue worse too.
Interesting idea re continuing the lines of the window with a mirror! Im so crap at visualising things, but that might work!

Continuing the lines of the window with mirrored glass was my first thought.

Fuzzymoon that idea also occurred to me too. Just hard knowing whats best!

We have a similar situation so used a corner mirror cabinet....adds a little storage and light and is at an ok angle to use when using the sink.

JellyBelly ah amazing! Great to see a pic too. That looks really great and storage added bonus. Clever how its the exact height of the windows too! Can i ask where its from?

It's made/sold by a company called Hib. We bought it from an online bathroom shop, I think it's fairly widely available.

We put a massive mirror on the left hand wall rather than in the gap by the window.

I ended up putting a small cabinet in there instead for the toothbrushes.
