Possible not the safest colour but many mirrors I know are dark/navy blue or black.

I painted mine green. I have also seen a number of yellow, and even blue.

It really is a case of whatever colour floats your boat!

I painted mine yellow. Don't ask me why as I did it 30 years ago. It was originally white.
