3 Things to Consider When Buying Custom Mirrors

You’ve likely spent a lot of time and money designing and decorating your home so that it reflects your personal style. But have you thought about your mirrors? Often times, these get overlooked in favor of more economical options. Whether it’s the bathroom, hallway, or bedroom, your mirrors can make a statement. Here are our top three tips for selecting the perfect custom mirrors for any room in your home.

1. Consider the Overall Style

When choosing a mirror frame, consider the overall design style of your home. If you’ve gone for a sleek, modern feel, you’ll want to choose a more simple mirror frame. Stick to solid colors and easy shapes, such as our Highline, Pacifica, or Soho styles. On the other hand, if your home is more ornate, you’ll likely want a mirror frame that complements this design style. Think of gilded frames, those with more complex shapes, or unique textures. Our Bellemeade, Naples, and Providence styles might be just what you’re looking for.

2. How Much Space Do You Have?

When you’re browsing through mirror frames, consider how much space you have around the existing mirror before you run in to countertops, lighting, outlets, or wall corners. Measure the available space around your mirror and keep this in mind when shopping. If you’re tight on space, you’ll want to stick to sleeker frames like Broadway Slim, Cherokee Slim, or Pemaquid Slim. But if you’ve got a wide open wall, you can be more generous with the size of your frame. Check out the Grandezza, Mediterra, or Venetian styles.

3. What’s Your Color Scheme?

Although many of our mirror frames are available in neutral colors that will match any decor, you’ll want to be mindful of your home’s color scheme. If you’ve chosen cool toned colors such as silver, navy, and black, throughout your home, a cherry wood frame, such as the Chelsea Cherry Red, might feel out of place. However, this would be a perfect choice for a traditional, warm home.
