Choosing your living room mirror
If you have a small or cosy lounge, you can create the illusion of greater depth with a large mirror. Equally, you can brighten a dark or gloomy corner by positioning a mirror to reflect light back into the room. Add a striking focal point to a large living room with an extra-large wall mirror, a funky or unusual mirror, or an arrangement of smaller mirrors.
Which style mirror – contemporary, traditional or quirky?
While complementing the décor in your room with a matching mirror is always a good idea, mixing styles can also be highly effective.
Try juxtaposing a traditional lounge with a modern living room wall mirror, or add a classic overmantel or French baroque-inspired wall mirror to a minimalist space.
Think about where you sit in your living room, and position the mirror to ensure it’s reflecting something visually attractive – rather than a pile of clutter once tucked out of sight! You can also make more of a favourite piece of artwork by positioning a large living room mirror opposite.
How to hang your mirror
It’s good to remember that mirrors don’t have to be hung from the wall, some can be sat on furniture or shelves, or leant against a wall. See below for our wide range of living room mirror ideas and inspiration.
