Tips For Decorating With Full Length Floor Mirrors

First of all, find balance. Standing or hung full length mirrors can be a great addition to any room, but make sure you’re not overdoing it. The mirror should balance functionality and decorative style. Ensure that you are not overpowering the rest of the room, based on the style, colour and size chosen; aim to compliment your interior space. 

Before selecting a full sized mirror, consider the style of your room, and what types of mirror styles would match it. And of course, who can forget colour. Always look to consider colours, and whether the wall behind the mirror would look good with a mirror, you never want to overcrowd a wall. Lastly, the location. Make sure you’re putting the mirror in a place that’s open, so the room still feels spacious even with the reflective surface.
