Wall mirrors – make your room feel larger
What are standing mirrors?
Standing mirrors are a practical and often fashionable addition to your room that can be pushed up against a wall or left to stand alone with a stand behind it, just like the table mirror available on Kulina.
These mirrors can also brighten and offer more dimension to your bedroom, living room, and other spaces, depending on where you place them. Shop from top brands like Blomus and Hübsch here and find the one that suits your taste.
Where are standing mirrors placed around the house?
A standing mirror can be positioned wherever you choose, but it's a good idea to do it in an area with little foot traffic to prevent bumping and knocking.
In a spacious living room, a standing mirror can also double the sense of space. A standing mirror that serves as a full-length mirror for dressing can be placed in a bedroom, a spacious bathroom, or a dressing room.
A standing mirror can be placed next to a dining table, in a gloomy corner of any room, or at the end of a long, dark corridor to reflect light, enhance viewpoints, and multiply the sensation of space.
Even a huge standing mirror with a metal frame against a wall may transform a rear patio into an outdoor living area.
How tall should a standing mirror be?
This mostly comes down to personal preference. If you intend to use a standing-length mirror for wardrobe planning, it should be at least 25 cm long.
The height of your standing mirror will depend on how high your ceiling is, where it is situated, and how much presence you want it to have. Several standing mirrors are produced in the 5- to 7-foot range. Go as short as you like for a child's room or as tall as you like for a large space.
How do you stabilize a leaning mirror?
The stability of your leaning mirror depends on the thickness and stability of the base, the height and size of the mirror, and the amount of friction between the mirror and where you are standing.
Add some rubber grips or furniture strips to the base of a wood-framed mirror before setting it on a hardwood surface to prevent it from sliding around. By attaching furniture straps to the back of the mirror, fastening it to wall studs, or using plasterboard anchors to fasten it to the wall, you can go one step further.
What do mirrors do for the interior?
Wall mirrors serve as versatile and impactful interior decor elements with several benefits:
Enhanced Space: Mirrors visually expand a room, making it feel larger and more open. Placing mirrors strategically can create an illusion of depth, particularly in smaller spaces.
Increased Light: Mirrors reflect natural and artificial light, effectively brightening up a room. They help distribute light more evenly and can even make a room appear sunnier and more inviting.
Decorative Accents: Mirrors come in various shapes, sizes, and frames, adding decorative flair to walls. They can serve as focal points or complementary pieces that enhance the aesthetics of a room.
Visual Interest: Mirrors introduce texture and dimension to interiors. Their reflective surfaces add complexity and a touch of sophistication, breaking up monotony in design.
Artistic Reflections: Mirrors can capture and reflect the beauty of art, furniture, and architectural details, allowing you to enjoy multiple perspectives of your decor.
Illusion of Height: Tall mirrors can create a vertical focus, visually elongating the height of a room, which can be particularly useful in spaces with lower ceilings.
Balance and Symmetry: Placing mirrors symmetrically or in pairs can create a sense of balance and harmony in a room's layout.
Functional Use: Mirrors are practical for personal grooming and outfit checks, especially when placed in entryways, hallways, or dressing areas.
Views and Scenery: Mirrors can be positioned to capture outdoor views, greenery, or interesting architecture, effectively bringing the outdoors indoors.
Small Spaces: Mirrors are particularly beneficial in small rooms or narrow hallways where they can make the area feel less cramped and more inviting.
Design Statement: Mirrors can serve as statement pieces, showcasing unique frames or shapes that reflect your personal style.
Overall, mirrors contribute to the aesthetics, functionality, and overall ambience of an interior. By carefully selecting their placement and design, you can harness their transformative power to elevate your living spaces.
