Wall mirrors are decorative and functional additions that can help to brighten a space and make it look bigger and more welcoming. Mirrors are also a very versatile design element that can complement any space, as they literally reflect the colors and décor of the room they are placed in. However, decorative mirrors don’t have to be style chameleons, and there are options that can stand out with interesting and intricate frames or any of a nearly endless number of shapes. From the classic rectangular or round mirrors, to sunbursts, arches, geometric patterns, or abstract shapes, wall mirrors come in a diverse range of styles. All of these are also available in many different sizes to allow them to be matched proportionally to different sized spaces or arranged in an interesting manner. For example large mirrors might perfectly complement a living room or bedroom with high ceilings or a spacious layout, while a small mirror might be just the right accent for a petit powder room, or a fun addition to a grouping of wall decor. Mirrors can also be useful additions in just about any space in the home. They can function solely as décor on a living room or hallway wall, be mounted in a bathroom to aid with hygiene and makeup tasks, or hang by the front door for the convenience of a quick check before heading out.
In addition to framed or shaped mirrors, you can also choose from smaller task mirrors that have a base mounted on the wall. These usually are mounted on an accordion arm or a swing arm and can feature magnification, lighting, and a pivoting head to allow for perfect angling. These mirrors are typically used in a bathroom, but could also be a nice addition mounted next to a bedroom vanity.
