Things to keep in mind when choosing a Full-Length Mirror

Have you made up your mind to go for a full-length mirror? Well, here’s a quick checklist of things that you should keep in mind while choosing one. Once you begin your search you’ll realise that there is a wealth of available options, so we’re here to help you narrow down your preferences:

Frames are important. What is your style preference? There are endless options to choose from. You can go for simple, plain frames, very ornate frames or there are frames that are subtle and charming. This more or less depends on the look of your décor and what will sit well in it.

Dimension is undoubtedly the most important consideration of all. Not only the size of the mirror but that of the wall also needs to be taken into consideration. The mirror shouldn’t over power nor should it lose itself in the décor. Although large mirrors are always welcome, if the frames are too huge it might become an imposing addition to the space.     

Location of the mirror is important. Always remember it is not only about checking your appearance. Mirrors are functional and can be used to open up and brighten a space. For instance, a mirror strategically placed to reflect light will have a huge impact on how bright the room is. When placed in the right location within a small room, it can open up a room and make it feel larger. Placing a full-length mirror between windows is the best way of creating an illusion of space.

If you choose a mirror with an ornate frame, there is no other decorative accessory like it! However, if you are working within a budget this option may not be as accessible as others - ornate mirrors can be pricey! The pricing depends on a lot of factors including the size, thickness, frames and whether they are modern, antique or vintage.
If you are looking for a mirror for a hallway or a dressing room, a full-length mirror might be the best idea.
