Everybody has a mirror in their home. Mirrors provide the useful function of allowing us to check our reflections while also coming in a huge range of shapes and styles to fit with any interior design or aesthetic. Mirrors also come in a bunch of different sizes for different purposes, and these can correspond with the different rooms in your house. Let’s have a look at the ideal mirror size for each room!
Bedroom: Full-Length Mirror
The bedroom is the most classic place to find a mirror, and perhaps the most important! Unless you’re wealthy enough to have a walk-in closet or an entire room dedicated to your clothes, the bedroom is where you’ll try on all your outfits and prepare for each day! Because of this, only a full-length mirror can do for your bedroom.
Bathroom: Medium Waist-High Mirror
Bathrooms are another common place to find a mirror. But usually, our bathrooms aren’t for swapping outfits and modelling clothes, they’re for doing our hair, makeup, and the rest of our morning face routine! The best mirror for your bathroom should cover from around the waist up, and is best placed above your sink.
Living Room: Small Head Height Mirror
The living room isn’t a vital place for a mirror, but one can still be used to maximise your natural light or vamp up your design! Your size requirements may rely on your chosen design, but a head height mirror can look perfect in the right interior living space.
The kitchen is one of the few rooms with little scope for a mirror. Why are you checking your refection when dinner is burning?! The best way to incorporate mirrors into your kitchen design is with mirrored accents on your cupboards or surface tops.
Hallway: Face Mirror
The hallway mirror is the ultimate last chance to check your reflection on the way out of the door. You’ve done your hair in the bathroom mirror and approved your outfit in your full-length mirror and now, just as you step out the front door, you want one last glance to ensure you’re looking on point. A small face mirror at head height is perfect for this!
