How to choose the best mirror for you
Mirror buyers guide
There is a lot to consider when deciding on a mirror. There are so many different styles, shapes and sizes to choose from. A mirror can not only be functional but also be a nice way to brighten up a room or give the illusion of more space.
Wall-mounted mirrors are designed to be hung on the wall and can come in a range of different shapes and sizes suited to any room and for any purpose.
Leaner/ freestanding mirrors don’t need to be wall-mounted, and are usually full-length.
Choosing the right size
Choosing the right size mirror is important. Think about the size of your room and where you want to put your mirror before buying it. Use a paper template to help you map out the position and think about the footfall as well for freestanding mirrors.
How to hang a mirror
Hanging your new mirror can take a bit of planning and patience but it’s worth it in the end.
Make sure you have all the right screws and wall fixings before you start. Think about the type of wall you are hanging your mirror onto and also the weight of the mirror.
Plaster or drywall often isn’t strong enough to support a heavy wall mirror, so make sure any screws or hooks are attached to wooden beams behind the plaster.
For a freestanding mirror that doesn’t need hanging, make sure both the wall and the floor is flat enough for it to lean against.
