Having a mirror in the bedroom is probably one of the easiest ways to upgrade an otherwise mundane space into something magical. Bedrooms are the best place to let loose your creativity and make a room your own. After all, you’re the one that has to sleep in it!
Mirrors are fantastic at the task of sprucing up a room cheaply; they create an illusion of added space, bring additional light into the room, and are practical items for getting ready in the morning.
In this guide, we’re going to go through some of the best tips we can think will make sure that the mirror you choose for your bedroom is practically perfect in every way for your abode.
So, let’s dive in!
Decide on Style
It sounds easy, but choosing your perfect for your style is a tricky business. That’s why we always recommend making a decision and sticking to it as soon as possible. The style of your mirror is going to dictate a lot of other factors for your broader décor, so making that decision early is going to save time save you from any mental fatigue.
As a tip, consider the loose style of your bedroom as a guide. For example, a sleek, modern bedroom with many glossy and metallic materials would be perfect for a mid-century metal framed mirror. Still, it may be ill-suited for something with more natural textural, such as wooden and boho framed pieces.
This will always be determined by personal preference, but the size of a mirror will be crucial to how well it impacts your bedroom’s décor. Large mirrors are fantastic at creating an additional light and visually centering a space but can become cumbersome in smaller areas.
If you’re looking for a mirror to add light and space to your room simply, then a smaller, rattan, or boho mirror would be perfect. Though if you’re interested in having the full-body experience when completing your morning routine, then risking the space to include a more prominent piece may be worth the risk.
Again, this decision is based on personal preference, so be sure to know exactly what you want your mirror for.
This may sound crazy, but sometimes one mirror is simply not enough. Doubling up on your mirrors can be a fantastic way to increase the impact of your one-piece while also achieving a level of symmetry that’s highly pleasing to the eye.
Of course, how you go about this is worth noting. First, if you decide to have more than a single piece in your room, it’s worth making sure you’re getting visually similar mirrors, as clashing is a genuine problem. As a shorthand, it’s almost impossible to put two mirrors of a different era or style together without them clashing, so avoid the temptation entirely and stick with two of the same.
If you’re looking to increase the height of your ceiling or double the visual width of a room, then having two mirrors rather than one can be a fantastic tool to achieve this feeling without having to remodel your home at the same time.That’s it for this guide on choosing the correct mirror for your bedroom.
