When selecting a mirror for your home, there are many things that need to be taken into consideration. Mirrors are the perfect way to add in some light, brighten up your space and also help to create the illusion of space. But with a variety of sizes, styles and finishes, the options can be overwhelming. Don't worry, we’ve got some top tips to help guide you to choose the right mirror for your home.
What are the different types of mirrors?
Wall Mirrors: These come in various styles and sizes and are suited for every room regardless of the interior. As the name suggests, these are intended to be hung on the wall.
Full Length Mirrors: These can be hung on the wall or left freestanding depending on your preference. Full length mirrors are normally narrow and long in size, perfect for a dressing room, bedroom or in the hallway.
Freestanding Mirrors: Freestanding or leaner mirrors do not need to be hung on the wall. Big in size, this is the type of mirror you want if you are looking to make a statement!
Wall Mirror vs. Floor Mirror?
If you’re confused between selecting a wall mirror and a floor mirror, the first thing to take into consideration is the amount of space you have. Freestanding, floor mirrors naturally take up more space so would be better in larger rooms. Wall mirrors can easily be placed on any wall of any room, so you don’t have to worry about losing any floor space.
Mirror placements around your home
If you're looking to make a statement, then having a full length mirror in the hallway will definitely do just that. A striking piece when entering your home, but also perfect for a last minute look when popping out the house!
Similarly, the bedroom or the dressing room is the perfect place for a full length mirror. This will also help make the room look a lot brighter and bigger, perfect way to get in a lot of light!
The living room is usually busy with furniture and seating, so a stylish wall mirror is definitely more fitting here. Take a look at the furniture you've got in the room, and pick a mirror style that compliments the shapes.
