Positioned with care, a mirror will enhance any room. When considering what to buy and where to place it, think about how you use the room, where the windows are and whether you intend to use the mirror for decorative or practical purposes.
The Living Room
Your living room should be a calm, comforting space where you can sit down and relax. With this in mind, it's unlikely that the chief purpose of a mirror in this room would be to check your reflection, which you're more likely to do in a bathroom or bedroom. When aesthetics are more important than practicality you can choose any style, but consider how to enhance your space nonetheless. A large mirror hung adjacent to or opposite a window will reflect plenty of light around the room and create a sense of expansiveness, which is great for small or darker rooms.
SHOP WALL MIRRORSThe Bedroom
A full length mirror is ideal for a bedroom, and there are plenty of stylish options available. Rather than choosing one that affixes to a wall or the inside of a cupboard door, make your mirror a decorative feature. Free standing styles crafted from smooth, pale-coloured wood have an alluring Scandi minimalism, which you can accentuate with a carefully placed plant or two. Use this style to soften a harsh corner or to zone off a small dressing area. If you're short on space, a similar dressing table mirror is a great alternative. As before, angle towards a window to invite light and space in to the room.
SHOP FULL-LENGTH MIRRORSThe Bathroom
Bathroom mirrors are often the most practical in style and, depending on space, you might need to choose one that attaches to a cabinet or wall. Above the sink is the obvious choice, but you could go against the grain by opting for a larger mirror which takes up the expanse of a whole wall. This is a real statement in a smaller space, and can double as a mirror in which to check your outfit when the bedroom one is in use.
