How to choose the best bedroom mirror

How to choose the best bedroom mirror

Your bedroom is your sanctuary; your special place to retreat to after a hectic day, to curl up and relax ready for sleep. It is essential that your bedroom furnishings are complementary to your own personal style, so that you can feel totally at ease with your surroundings in this most intimate of living spaces. As well as a bed of course, another staple bedroom item is the mirror. Bedroom mirrors provide us with opportunities to check our appearance before going out, making sure outfits look good, and performing enthusiastic singing and dancing routines – what, is that just me?? Surely not. But choosing the right mirror for your room is very important – some people go too small, thinking that a large mirror will dwarf their bedroom, but actually the opposite is true! Having a nice big mirror in your bedroom can really open up the space, reflecting in more light and making your room appear larger. With our collection of over 800 mirrors, you are sure to find the perfect bedroom mirror at DUSX.

For twice the reflections, try pairing a Vintage Venetian Oval Mirror with a Venetian Mirrored Silver Dressing Table for a dazzling statement piece in your bedroom, ideal for imbuing smaller bedrooms with more light and giving the appearance of a larger space. For a more classic, traditional look, try placing an overmantle mirror like this Antique Taupe Mirror over the Antique Taupe Console Table for a style that is as sophisticated as it is timeless.

A full length mirror is ideal for bedrooms, providing the perfect opportunity to admire your whole outfit before you go out, and a tall mirror like these actually make your ceiling appear higher.

As far as mirrors go, bigger is most definitely better, and as we mentioned earlier, a lot of people think their bedroom is ‘too small’ for a large mirror. In fact, having a larger mirror in a small space can actually create the appearance of a much bigger room. See how the Augustina Cream & Silver french Rococo Bevelled Mirror in the left picture reflects the bed and other items of furniture, making them seem further away – this optical effect will apply in any sized room. On the right, this Antique Grey Floor Standing Metal Mirror stands at over 2 metres tall, and its softly faux-aged appearance will lend your bedroom a charmingly vintage touch, perfect when accessorised with some flowers and candles.

A cheval mirror is a floor mirror that comes with its own stand on which it is adjustable, and they make for simply fabulous bedroom mirrors. As well as the ornate frames and stands providing a handsome decorative element, they are ideal if you do not have the wall space needed for a wall mounted mirror or leaner mirror. On the left, the Tono White Cheval Mirror features a soft white finish and exquisitely crafted Rococo style embellishments – this pairs perfectly with our Antique White Rattan Bed.
