While wooden mirrors have come a long way in terms of design, it's still a daunting task to default to a 48-inch x 12-inch wall space diagram as essentially equivalent to an empty frame. We've rounded up some of designers' smartest strategies for integrating floor-to-ceiling mirrors. These techniques will make the floor-to-ceiling mirror look like an intentional stylistic element in any room, from the living room to the bedroom and beyond.
Clever lean mirror decor ideas for living rooms are not limited to wall-to-wall mirrors. If you prefer to use a traditional free-standing floor-to-ceiling mirror, consider leaning it casually against a wall rather than opting for traditional hanging work. A completely transformative move, deftly leaning against the floor-to-ceiling mirror in the living room, creates a sense of deconstructed elegance and improvisational brilliance.
When it comes to installing a tilting floor-to-ceiling mirror in your living room, the sturdier your mirror, the better. Choose oversized mirrors with heavy frames to make your mirrors feel more like furniture. If your living room floor-to-ceiling mirror isn't a very personal piece by itself, try stacking it with a bench or a suitcase. Pushing a bench or box in front of a mirror helps make your room feel intentional and avoids any perception that you're using your living room as a temporary reserve space.
Hanging a full-length mirror from a cloak may seem unorthodox, but it can actually have an amazing effect. Every bit as classic as an oil portrait but more functional, floor-to-ceiling mirrors hanging from the mantle are a great way to extend the fireplace building and make the ceiling look enviable tall.
The mirror above the fireplace is the main place to experiment with different shapes of mirrors. If your living room is a bit lacking in design, an arched full-length mirror can bring a bit of architectural flair.
If your dining room is an accessory room off the kitchen, it may be equipped with nothing more than a window. Depending on the structure of your restaurant, this can make one side of the room feel heavier than the other, especially if there's no room to put a bookcase or buffet on the opposite wall. Instead of resorting to art, try placing a floor-to-ceiling mirror on the wall parallel to the window. Floor-to-ceiling mirrors not only provide balance, but also visually expand the space. Even if your dining room is not a proper room, but a divided space, using a floor-to-ceiling mirror on a single wall can work wonders.
Just as in the living room, the key to making floor-to-ceiling mirrors in the dining room is to get casual lean. Laid-back is the goal here, so look for chunky framed mirrors that won't be outdone by your cutlery or chandelier.
The bedroom may be a natural habitat for floor-to-ceiling mirrors, but considering one of them is still tricky, especially when you consider all the other bedroom necessities (like dressers and nightstands) that need to be considered. In order to avoid space tension, it is wise to reduce the floor mirror in the bedroom. Stick to a smaller profile mirror unless you have extra space.
As with full-length mirrors in living and dining rooms, more prominent full-length mirrors in bedrooms will increase the style quota of your room. Avoid full-body framed mirrors that feel too simple, unless your room has taken a turn for style hedonism. Remember: Unless hidden in a closet or behind a door, floor-to-ceiling mirrors are almost always an opportunity for maximum impact.
