From bathroom vanities to entryways, there are some mirror placements that are predictable and practical. But for less of a been-there, done-that look, consider a custom mirror for creative placement — you might be surprised just how much impact a mirror can have if you think outside the box! Ahead, we’re diving into a few special spots to put a mirror that you probably haven’t thought of yet.
- On a Screened Porch
It’s not often you find mirrors outdoors, but it can be the most wonderful surprise! Reflect lush greenery or a prized gardening pot to make your screened porch feel even more spacious. Although you may get the occasional layer of pollen or grime, your covered porch will protect the mirror from major damage — and the wow-factor is worth it!
- Down Low as a Baby Toy
Consider placing a mirror low enough where it could double as a baby toy. It’s no secret that babies love looking in mirrors — and with one at eye-level for them, you can count on endless entertainment. You might opt for a long, full-length mirror that lands just above the baseboard; get creative with placement in the play corner or nursery; you could even put one on the funky-shaped wall where the stairs meet the wall. Just make sure that your custom mirror is securely fastened to the wall, not leaning against it. Safety first!
- Mixed Into A Gallery Wall
Add another layer of texture to your wall by mixing a custom mirror into a gallery wall featuring photos or shadow boxes of favorite memories! Go big and bold, with your photos arranged around your mirror, or opt for a mirror that blends in size-wise — both options can add extra oomph to your decor. Whether it’s on the wall going up the stairs, a feature wall in your living room, or even a “memory wall” in your home office or guest room, a mirror adds a bit of whimsy and light, making your gallery even more interesting.
- In Places Lacking Light
Because they reflect light, mirrors are one way to instantly add brightness and space to a room. If you have a dark corner or a strangely shaped, dim hallway, a custom mirror may be just what you need to add life to the space. Luckily, with our option for custom frames, even the most unorthodox spaces can have a mirror!
