Picking the Best Mirror for a Space

When it comes to home décor, there are so many options available. You can choose to decorate your home with an abundance of framed family photos, fine art paintings, plants, decorative knickknacks, antiques, family heirlooms, or even sculptures on custom pedestals. While these are all good choices, a custom wall mirror could elevate your room to the next level.

Finding A Mirror for Your Home

At Rosenbaum Framing, we understand that picking the best mirror for a space is no easy task. Because a mirror’s frame can make or break your décor, our Boca custom framing experts offer a few things to consider when creating a custom mirror for your space.

Style vs. Function

Is the mirror meant for functional purposes such as above a bathroom vanity or for decorative purposes such as a leaner mirror for the bedroom? When picking the frame moulding for a decorative mirror, you may want something that stands out from its surroundings or may be more elaborate. If the mirror is mainly for style, you may also want to consider grouping a few mirrors together. Our framing consultants can help you create a unique display.

Room

Regardless of its functionality, you will want a moulding for your custom wall mirror that is appropriate for the room where it will be on display. For example, mirror mouldings for a children’s room would have a completely different look, such as bright, shiny colors, compared to a more subtle wooden moulding for a dining room that is only used on special occasions. Keep the function of the room in mind in order to pick the best mirror for the room.

Surrounding Décor

Whether you want it to stand out or blend in, a custom mirror should complement the décor or framed fine art around it. A mirror frame that doesn’t match anything else in the room could end up looking out of place. Pay attention to the frames of any hanging photographs or art as well as the color of the wall and style of furniture and go from there. You can even choose a mirror moulding that complements your fireplace mantle or bathroom cabinetry.

Size

Size is another big factor in finding the best wall mirror for your space. You want a mirror that is not too big or too small for the allotted space. A bigger mirror may stand out more, but what about a series of smaller mirrors hung together? Playing with size could create a dynamic display.

 

Whether you are looking for a new vanity mirror in your guest bath, a leaner mirror for your bedroom, or a statement wall mirror for your foyer or above your mantle, our custom framing shop in Boca will help you find the best mirror for a space.
