Mirrors are one of my favorite accessories. They brighten up a space, add interest and texture in unexpected places and dimension to walls when you don’t want to use artwork. A good mirror isn’t hard to find, but I thought I’d round up some of my favorites for you in case you needed a little nudge in the right direction.
A few tips:
- Always check and make sure the mirror can hang in the direction you want it to– not all mirrors can be hung vertically or horizontally. Some are made to only hang one way.
- Round mirrors add a lot of nice soft movement to rooms with lots of angles.
- If you need a very narrow mirror for a powder room or other small space look for vintage ones on Etsy, Chairish, 1stDibs or similar. There aren’t a lot of small mirrors made these days!
- For really tricky sizes and dimensions, go custom. Any frame shop can make you a mirror with a framing moulding of your choice! Or we like to make grasscloth wrapped mirrors from here which add texture.
- Consider mirrors when light is an issue- when we had to close up one of the two mirrors in our dining area for our addition I placed three rectangular bistro frame style mirrors in it’s place to trick they eye and bounce light. It worked wonders.
- Horchow and Wisteria are having mirror sales today!
