9 Stunning Decorative Wall Mirrors You'll Love - Accent Mirror

Did you know that mirrors have several benefits in your design plans? Before sharing our favorite mirrors with you, we will share the top benefits of adding a mirror to your space. You’ll be eager to decorate with mirrors by the end of this article. 


Benefits of Mirrors

There are so many benefits of adding mirrors to your home. They act as both a design element and a practical tool. We will share our top six reasons for adding a mirror to your space. 

  • Practicality

Have you ever wanted to check your outfit before leaving home to ensure the creases are out of your shirt? Have you tried to ensure that your hair is free of flyaway and your lipstick is placed where it should be? To do this, you need a mirror. 

There is a level of practicality to mirrors. You can use mirrors to check your appearance. This will help skyrocket your confidence and make you feel good! 

  • Safety

Feeling safe in your own home is essential. Adding pieces to your home that can provide safety enhances your investment. Mirrors can do this. Mirrors give you vision in places that you wouldn’t normally have. With mirrors, you can have a 360-degree view of your home that you wouldn’t otherwise have. 

For many people, mirrors make them feel safer. This small design hack can add additional security to your home. It’s not something many people think about when purchasing this piece. However, it makes a big difference for many homeowners. 

  • Adds Brightness

Do you live in a space with limited brightness? If you find that natural light isn’t plentiful, a mirror can help with that. Natural light can quickly open up a room and make it feel airier. You’ll want to place a mirror opposite a light source to do this. For example, your mirror would face the window in your home. Light will then reflect off of the mirror. This will make the entire space feel brighter. 

This is especially useful in spaces that are smaller or have darker colors or accents. 

  • Adds Space

Not only can a mirror add brightness, but it can add space too! If you have a smaller home, then a mirror can make it feel bigger. Mirrors create an optical illusion of space. They reflect the room, making it appear more prominent in size. To make the most out of this effect, purchase a floor-length mirror or do a wall of mirrors. This will significantly impact how your space presents to guests and feels to you! 

After all, you want your house to feel like a home. By being strategic with your design efforts, you can make that happen.

  • Hides Imperfections

Let’s face it: not all walls are created perfectly. To hide these imperfections, you can hang something in front of them! Over time, it’s expected that drywall will become damaged due to hanging pictures or shifting homes. This can be a bit of an eye sore.

One of our favorite ways to do this is by adding a mirror. Out of sight, out of mind. You’ll forget about the unsightly, hidden hole in your drywall, and you’ll be left with a beautiful piece of decor that adds visual interest to your home. 


Our Top Wall Mirrors

Now that we’ve shared the benefits of mirrors with you, we’re ready to dive into our favorite wall mirrors. These wall mirrors will help make your home look more polished, intentional, and designed. 

Keep in mind that mirrors can be an investment. To protect your investment, follow these suggestions:

  • If the mirror is heavy, get a professional to hang it! We recommend reinforcing the wall for heavy pieces. Otherwise, the mirror can fall off the wall. This will result in damage to the wall and potentially a broken mirror. If you aren’t confident that you can properly secure the mirror, then hire a professional. 

  • Clean the mirror frequently. To clean, spray with a solution made of one part vinegar and four parts water. Carefully wipe the mirror from side to side with a microfiber or lint-free cloth. Do not wipe in circular motions. An excess of dust and debris over time can scratch the mirror. 

  • If you are moving, ensure that proper care is used for the mirror. Cover the glass with bubble wrap and padding. Lay the mirror flat. Do not pile objects on top of the mirror.
