Add a decorative touch to a room or hallway and create the illusion of more space in your home with mirrors. From elegant wood framed mirrors to simple frameless mirrors, here’s how to choose the best mirrors for your home’s style.
Mirrors for Every Room
Select from a range of mirrors that add form and function to each room in your home:
● Bedrooms. A full-length, or floor mirror, is essential in a bedroom to get a full-length view when getting dressed. Hang a door mirror on the inside of your closet to save on floor space. Also, hang a dresser mirror over your chest of drawers for a functional yet decorative statement.
● Bathrooms. Many bathrooms mirrors can be simple, frameless glass with beveled edges. You can also select a large white mirror to place over your vanity. Choose a finish that’s moisture resistant.
● Entryways. Hang a gilded rectangular wall mirror in the entryway for one last look before you leave the house. It will reflect the light from surrounding windows and make the entrance to your home bright and inviting.
● Living Areas. Hang a collection of framed mirrors as part of a gallery wall in the dining room. Place an oversized wall mirror over your couch or fireplace for a dramatic statement.
Mirror Shapes and Styles to Consider
Decorative mirrors are one of the simplest ways to enhance the design of your home. Choose unique shapes and frames that add character.
Also known as crowned mirrors, archtop mirrors have an elegant shape. Round mirrors with starburst designs are also on trend. For a more traditional and refined look, choose an oval mirror. They work well in pairs, side by side in a bathroom or over matching twin beds in a kids’ room.
Ornate frames give square and rectangular mirrors more visual interest. Go with a gold mirror for a formal space, like a dining room. Wood framed mirrors with a natural finish are ideal for a rustic look, while dark tones or black framed mirrors create a more classic vibe. Or, for a fun and artsy flair, choose a mirror framed by mosaic tiles.
