How to choose the right mirror for every context

Categories : Lighting

Mirrors are fundamental elements in home furnishings, not only for their functionality, but also for their aesthetic impact. In fact, choosing the right mirror can enhance and improve any setting, from the functionality of the bathroom to the elegance of the living room.

So here is a guide to help you choose the perfect mirror for every room in your home.

Bathroom mirrors

The bathroom is a place where practicality and resistance are essential. The mirrors intended for this room must therefore have some specific characteristics:

Humidity resistance: humidity is one of the main enemies of mirrors. For this reason, bathroom mirrors must be treated to resist corrosion caused by steam and water.

Anti-condensation: a very useful function is the anti-condensation system, which prevents the mirror from fogging up after a hot shower.

Integrated Lighting: many modern bathroom mirrors include integrated LED lights, ideal for precision actions such as applying makeup or shaving.

Dimensions and positioning: obviously it is essential to consider the size of your bathroom and consequently the positioning of the mirror, so that it is proportionate and neither too large nor too small.

Mirrors for other context

Every room in the house has different needs when it comes to mirrors. So here are some guidelines to help you choose the right mirror for each room:

Entryway: A large mirror in the entryway can be extremely practical. Not only does it allow you to give your appearance a final check before heading out, but it can also make the space feel larger and brighter. Choose a design that reflects the rest of your home decor.


Hallway: Hallways can benefit greatly from the addition of mirrors, which reflect light and visually expand the space. An interesting idea could be to use a series of small mirrors along the corridor, thus creating a gallery effect.

Living room: In this area, mirrors can be used as decorative elements. For example, a large mirror placed above the fireplace or behind a sofa can become a focal point of the room. You could also choose mirrors with elaborate or designer frames, to add a touch of elegance and charm.

Bedroom: In bedroom, mirrors are essential both for their functionality and for their aesthetic contribution. A large full-length mirror is therefore recommended, useful for dressing, but the idea of ​​placing smaller decorative mirrors, which can add a touch of style, is also very nice.
