Mirror, mirror on the wall: are you really the fairest of them all? When it comes to mirrors, of course you want what’s reflected in them to look as good as possible. But the mirror itself? That needs to look good and be functional for whatever space it’s going to be in. And when you’re shopping for mirrors, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the choices out there. If you’re investing in a new piece of reflective decor for your house, your best bet is something classic that will stand the test of time. Basic, but with a little flair. It’s also possible to get a high-quality mirror (no fun-house effects) without totally breaking the bank. Here are five mirrors that can do the job and then some, depending on what you need.
1. NeuType Full Length Mirror
Full-length mirrors serve a somewhat utilitarian role in our lives. But even if you mostly need one to get a quick look at your outfit before rushing out the door, you can still find one with plenty of style and function. By widening the mirror from the typical narrow rectangle, you add more visual interest. Plus, you can lean it for even more flair. (Only do this if you don’t need to worry about kids or can secure the leaning mirror, of course!) The mirror can even be hung horizontally for a bold look over a hallway table or dresser.
2. HBCY Creations Black Round Wall Mirror
A round wall mirror feels classic with just the right amount of retro. You can use this mirror in your bathroom or bedroom, hang it alone as a statement piece, and even incorporate it in a gallery wall. Wherever you put it, it will open up your room without taking up too much space. The black frame also helps it pop against almost any wall color.
3. AmazonBasics Modern Dual Sided Magnification Makeup
Vanity mirrors are handy for make-up application and grooming, but can sometimes look a bit clinical and boring. This mirror, on the other hand, with its low profile and brushed metal, is reminiscent of classic industrial design. One side also provides normal (1x) magnification if you don’t need the magnification, while the other side provides a 7x view. When not in use, it will also still look good on your vanity or counter.
4. Umbra Hub Floor Length Mirror with Storage Rack
Banish the “clothes chair” with an attractive floor mirror that can hang outfits, blankets, towels and more. The four rungs provide you with a bit of extra storage (and makes open storage feel chic). It can be great in entranceways and bedrooms, and even in bathrooms. And, like the NeuType mirror, it takes a forgettable part of your home decor and makes it memorable.
5. Mirrotek Over The Door Mirror
When you’re really short on wall space, an over-the-door mirror is the way to go. Mirrotek’s comes in four different frame finishes if you still want to make the mirror mesh with your existing decor. The mirror can even be hung for a more permanent placement down the road and comes in extra long as well as extra-wide sizes.
