Types of Mirrors

It should be a refrain for anyone in the market for a mirror: Mirror, mirror, on the wall, become a favorite decorating item for us all. Hung above a buffet table, a lovely framed mirror can add a striking focal point to a dining space. Tacked to the wall in a walk-in closet, a simple, inexpensive mirror can give you a full picture of how you look in the morning. Before you purchase a mirror, though, take a look at the different types available: decorative, floor, and wall.

Decorative Mirrors

Decorative mirrors may be placed at a height that isn't for viewing clothing or faces before leaving the house.

Floor Mirrors

Floor mirrors have a frame that rests on the floor. Some may pivot up and down or side to side. These are often decorative as well as functional, providing a full-length view.

Product Features

Product Features

As different as mirrors are—in frame, size, and decorative elements—they have certain common product features that make it easier to sort through the options. Frame may be the most important, but the hanging mechanism to suspend the mirror is certainly crucial, too. Here's a quick guide to help you get started on finding the right mirror—or mirrors—for your home.

Frame

On less expensive mirrors, the frame may be very simple—plastic with little ornamentation. More decorative versions may have ornate frames that are as much artwork as the mirror.

Hanging Mechanism

The hanging mechanism of any mirror should be sized and sturdy enough to support the weight of the piece securely.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Many rooms may benefit from a mirror—even a small one tucked on a bookshelf can bounce light into a dark corner. But not all mirrors are created the same, and before you buy, there are purchase considerations that will help you determine what you need. Cost is of course a factor, as are style and size. Use this overview to help review possible selections.

Cost

Mirrors vary widely in cost, from a few dollars for the inexpensive wall versions to hundreds of dollars for traditionally styled, oversize ones that can serve like artwork.

Style

The frame around the mirror and the composition of the mirror itself should work together to present a coherent style that complements the rest of your decor.

Size

Proportions matter when it comes to a mirror. Measure the area where you're hoping to hang the mirror, and then the mirror itself. A piece that's too big will overpower a room, while one that's too small may look dwarfed in the space.
