Listen, we’re going to be straight with you. There are a lot of reasons to buy your own designer mirror for your home. A lot. 

However, there is also a  ton of choice. Mirrors can come in all shapes and sizes and come from various suppliers that adhere to other sections of the market. As a result, there is a lot to think about what to actually buy should you decide to embrace your own reflective art piece. 

Even worse, this multitude of choices means being able to choose something right for you can be challenging, with a lot of people left to sit with mirrors that either cheap or unfulfilling or both!

As suppliers of designer mirrors ourselves, we feel like we have to make sure you never have to experience the ignominy of having to settle for a mirror that simply isn’t “you.”

To that end, we’ve written this super handy blog to help you make the right choice by informing you of the best reason why you should buy a designer mirror in the first place. 

So read on, dear future mirror owner, and figure out what just makes a good designer mirror so great!

The Finishing Touch

The great thing about a designer mirror is that, as a reflective piece of art, mirrors can be the finishing touch in any interior. 

Completing the look of a room is always a transformative process. Each piece of furniture will usually lead to the next purchase, and so on and so on until you have a complete ensemble of possessions to create a finished vibe. 

Mirrors can remain part of that process, where their reflective property becomes a major strength as they seamlessly blend into the final design of the space by recreating the visual of the room within themselves. It’s pretty poetic if you think about it. 

Get Sophisticated

Everyone will stop to look at themselves in the mirror. It’s human nature to want to know what you look like. 

Now, we’re not saying you need a designer mirror to be sophisticated, but it sure does feel good to look at yourself in the mirror and see what a sophisticated individual looks like, because that’s you!

First Impressions

When someone enters a room they’ve never been in, the first impression will be important, whether you like it or not. First impressions dictate mood, tone, and opinion to a far greater degree than we’d like them to. So while it may sound superficial, the reality is that people make up their minds pretty quickly. 


As a result, making that first great impression will be the biggest challenge of any decorator. Thankfully, designer mirrors can make the save by being the best decorating weapon in the arsenal of good taste. 


Mirrors have a good habit of instantly making themselves the center of attention and can tie together a room better than any other piece of decor you can think of. Oversized designs, such as French and Moroccan style mirrors, are the best at this and can dominate a conversation while making the best impression possible in the process. 


For a little bit of instant style, try positioning a boho or rattan mirror in a neat corner of the room and watch how a designer mirror can instantly brighten and enhance a space, making any room feel more open and chic in the process.
