A Guide to Buying a Mirror

A Guide to Buying a Mirror

When it comes to buying a mirror, the choice is extremely difficult. There are so many shapes, sizes, colours, and styles. When you are looking to buy a mirror, it is important that you are aware of all types of mirrors, this way you won’t miss out on any mirrors you may have oved.

Types of Mirrors

Wall Mirrors – These are the most popular type of mirror. These can be small and compact or oversized statement pieces, needing only an empty wall space for them to hang on. They also attach to the wall with hooks or string.

Floor Mirrors – These are often full-length mirrors, that sit on either a stand or a swivel base, as well as large mirrors that can be leant against the wall. They are perfect for hallways and bedrooms where you want to view your whole outfit, and are a practical option if you’re unable to hang mirrors on your wall due to water pipes etc.

Dressing table – These mirrors are designed to be placed on dressing tables. They can be a swivel base, allowing you to tilt the mirror up and down. Book-style options are available too, with three mirrors giving you multiple views when you are getting ready. They are often square or oval shaped for a flattering portrait.

Placement of Mirror

Mirrors have the ability to create space and light in a room where before there was none. Hallways and bedrooms are good options for full length mirrors or over the door mirrors, allowing you to check your outfit before leaving the house. Large mirrors are also good additions to a narrow hallway, as they help bounce light down the length of the room. Living rooms and bedrooms are usually the largest rooms of the house, making them the perfect place for striking statement mirrors. Small and compact mirrors work well in bathrooms, where they can be placed above sinks or integrated into cabinet storage.
