How to Purchase the Perfect Wall Mirror

Designer wall mirrors are as varied as the walls they adorn. It’s a simple fact of a mirror buyer’s life that they’ll be inundated with a smorgasbord of designs, styles, and materials when trying to make their latest purchase.

In many ways, it’s never been a better time to start your own collection or even just buy one for a particular spot in your home. But, unfortunately, living in a golden age of mirror suppliers means that there is simply too much to choose from!

It’s genuinely incredible how many different mirror types there are to choose from, often with no single choice being explicitly wrong. Instead, every mirror has a reason why it could adorn your all, so making a decision is often just impossible.

Never fear, though, because we’ve got a fantastic blog ready to go that’ll show you the ropes when it comes to purchasing your very own wall mirror!

In this blog,  we’re going to go through some amazing design principles to know and use those to try to narrow down your choices. Read on!

Effortless Elegance

If you’re looking to go big and have a grand set-piece in your home, then you could not do better than incorporating a French mirror into your home! Antique French mirrors have made a comeback that is something to behold, and it’s easy to see why.

Antique French Mirrors work best as pieces that dominate a room or act as a centerpiece, where the total weight of their exquisite details can be appreciated. But, of course, a design like this needs to have the right surroundings, so it’s not as forgiving as other designs when t comes to fitting it in with the correct décor.

Of course, having a mirror-like, this was never about “trying to fit in,” right? French mirrors are about blazing a trail of your own and being able to live with a grand object that demands the attention of its admirers.

Something Versatile

Of course, the problem with a majestic centerpiece like a French mirror is that all of that beauty comes at the price of versatility. If you’re the kind of person that values a versatile mirror that affords you plenty of options, then it might be time to try out a metal rattan-style mirror.

The circular shapes of Rattan mirrors are timeless designs that can be framed easily to suit their surroundings. This piece is a fantastic example of that aesthetic and includes an inventively designed frame that echoes the Rattans circular design.

With a metal frame that almost curves the appearance of the mirror, this piece manages to blend into the wall seamlessly it’s fixed to, making the ultimate work of versatility and style.

Simple and Stately

On the subject of versatility, you can never go wrong with a more minimal and straightforward design. Simplicity is, after all, its own form of sophistication.

Minimalist pieces make great additions to bedrooms and living rooms, where tight corners or negative space can be filled with ease to make a room feel complete. When it comes to styling, these mirrors are versatile and can be hung up on a wall or simply leaned against the wall to create an off-the-cuff effect that works well for those who like to keep things casual.
