HOW TO CHOOSE A MIRROR

HOW TO CHOOSE A MIRROR

When deciding on a mirror, there are three main factors to consider—size, shape, and style.

  • Size: Determine what the mirror’s intended function will be. If it is to be a showpiece, the mirror must be large enough to stand out. How much of the room do you want to reflect? Do you just want to add a small accent? Smaller mirrors are better for accompanying furniture or specific types of décor. But even small mirrors can be grouped together to create a focal point.
  • Shape: A mirror’s shape can contribute to the ambience of a room. Horizontal mirrors help a room feel longer and draws the eye across the wall. Vertical shapes bring the eye up and create the illusion of height. Square, rectangle, or other angular shapes create order and define a classic or traditional style. For a softer feel, a round or curved frame will do; modern looks include star, sunburst, diamond, and geometric shapes.
  • Style: Many mirrors come with ornate or eclectic frames. These help define their style, but a frameless mirror can add elegance too. If you’re looking for something more rustic, wood mirror frames can achieve this. Glass provides a sleek, modern look while metal can be luxurious or add some edge to your décor. Mirrors can be chosen to reflect an existing style or create an accent and therefore a new vibe.

The right mirror depends on the character of your interior space, your own design preferences, and the reason for adding a mirror in the first place. Having an idea helps when shopping. However, just browsing a large selection of different mirrors can provide inspiration you didn’t expect.
