There are some ladies who fall in love with every mirror they see. For them a nice, big functional mirror is a necessity of life. I’m sure there are guys who are just as enamored by their own reflections (especially teenagers), but women seem a little more attentive to their appearance.
When adding a mirror to your dcor there are many options. Size, shape, frame color (or no frame) and style all come into play. Some mirrors are designed to hang on walls while others attach to a door. Some are freestanding models that are adjustable to your height. All should be capable of delivering an accurate reflection. Some cost as little as $20 while others can run many thousands of dollars. It’s up to you.
If you happen to live in a small space your best option could be an over the door mirror. Renters will appreciate how easy these mirrors are to install and remove when moving out. Wall mirrors are often heavier in weight and require substantial screws or clips to hold them in place. Sometimes this can leave holes or marks that will need to be repaired when vacating the premises.
Door mirrors are usually lightweight and yet large enough to enable you to view your entire body in the reflection. It’s important that it be installed at the proper height relative to your own height. If two or more differently sized adults will be using the mirror a compromise will have to be reached on height installation.
If your home has a fireplace you might consider adding an overmantle mirror to not only brighten up the room but also give the illusion of a larger space. Decorating the area above the mantle can sometimes present a challenge. Some will display several pictures in this area or one, larger single picture or portrait.
Numerous configurations exist for mantle mirrors although most often these units will be rectangular in shape. Any and all shapes are available, as mirrors are fairly easy to get custom cut. Triple sectioned mirrors (called the ‘triptych” design) have always been very popular for placement over a mantle.
Free standing, adjustable mirrors are good for use in certain areas and the story about their invention is an interesting one (but that’ll have to wait for a later discussion). For the budget minded or those with a smaller living space, a mirror attached to the back of a door is ideal. They’re readily available. Have a look.
