How to: Choose the right mirror for you!


The right mirror can transform a room!

Due to its reflective nature, a mirror can instantly create the illusion of more space and light, opening up your interior.

But how do you choose the right mirror for your space?

Choosing the right mirror can be difficult. 

Firstly, you must measure the space where you would like to place the mirror, making sure that if you plan on wall mounting your mirror, that the walls are secure enough to hold the weight. 

Secondly, decide on the style of mirror you’re looking for! 

Is your home more Minimalist? Vintage? Rustic? Decide what style would best suit your home before you start your search.

Now you know what style you are looking for and the area you will be placing it, you can start choosing the right mirror for you!

We will be focusing on the size and shape of mirrors and how you can pick the best one to suit your needs.

1.) Large Full Length Mirrors

Do you have a large area to work with? If so you may want to choose a full length style mirror.

The great thing about full length mirrors is that you can wall mount them or use them as a leaner mirror. This is ideal for those who regularly want to swap around their decor, as there will be no holes left in your walls to fix. 

But why else should you choose to go Full Length?

If you are placing your mirror in a bedroom, dressing room, entryway or hallway space, a full length mirror is probably the best way to go.

2.) Round Wall Mirrors

Are you searching for a mirror to wall mount that would look just as good placed above a fireplace as it would on its own?

Round mirrors are a huge trend at the moment due to their ability to easily fit into any style of interior. Round mirrors can blend seamlessly into modern, vintage or boho style spaces, so if you regularly update your home’s style, a round mirror might be the way to go.
