Imagine waking up on the day of a very important meeting or coming home at the end of the day and having to get ready for that special dinner party. Nothing can give you a boost of confidence like seeing yourself from head to toe before leaving the house.
For that, it is fundamental that you have a good floor mirror, placed in the right way, to have that full look glimpse and make the necessary adjustments.
This sounds great, right? So let me introduce you to the universe of floor mirrors so then you can choose the most suitable one for you!
From Head to Toe
Floor mirrors are versatile, elegant, and extremely useful, as they can be considered a decoration piece of furniture or a practical object to get a full-body view of yourself.
They come in different styles, shapes, and sizes but we can classify them according to three categories: Cheval, Traditional, and Leaning. They also come in different prices ranges, and luckily for you, it’s not that hard to find some cheap floor mirrors.
This kind of mirror is a very adjustable model that will fit perfectly into a walk-in closet. It comes with a dual-pinned structure within a frame, this way it can be easily adjusted or tilted at multiple angles. No matter how tall you are, you only need to lean the mirror accordingly so you may see yourself clearly.
The traditional model can be free-standing or bending against the wall. These are usually placed vertically, but if you want to be creative, place them horizontally so you can provide the illusion of a wider space. The ideal spot for this type of mirror would be a narrow entry or a passageway.
As the name suggests, these mirrors are supposed to be leaning against the wall, with only the top part touching the wall, while the bottom part is placed on the floor. These are often adorned with beautiful and elegant frames that can fit perfectly in bedrooms, entryways, or living rooms.
Placement is Key
Sometimes, choosing the place to put a mirror can be more challenging than you think.
There are certain things that you must have in mind, such as function, lighting, and of course, safety.
For a functional purpose, you should find a spot in the room where you have enough distance to see yourself from hat to shoes, such as your bedroom or the entry hall. If you don’t have a wide space, consider hanging it on the wall or in the back of a door.
The lighting of the place where you decide to put the mirror is a very important issue, after all, you need to see yourself sharply (natural light is always the best option)!
Lastly, you must choose a place regarding the activity and the “traffic” that may happen there. Most floor mirrors are designed to be heavy enough so they can stay put in one place, especially if they are standing on a carpet.
I hope this article may come in handy if you are planning to move, or just shake things up a little! Now you can choose the best mirror for you and know exactly where to put it. So, just have fun with interior design glam.
