How Custom Mirrors Can Transform Your Home

When homeowners begin the process of either decorating a new home or remodeling one they’ve been in for a while, there are dozens upon dozens of decisions that have to be made. It is, in fact, all too easy to get so caught up in deciding big things, like paint colors and overall furniture styles, that you forget to focus on small decorative details, such as mirrors. As a matter of fact, though, custom mirrors can have a major impact on the appearance of your house. In the next few paragraphs, you’ll learn how to use them in several spaces.



Custom mirrors can be used in a variety of different kinds of bathrooms to create a homeowner’s desired effect. In small powder rooms, for example, large custom mirrors give the illusion of more space, making these typically compact spaces seem larger.

In master bathrooms, custom mirrors are commonly used in vanity areas, where they can even feature one-of-a-kind lighting that makes makeup application a breeze. You may also want to consider having a full-length mirror built for your master bath. This will allow you to easily check how you look before you leave for the day or before you go to an evening event.



Hallways and foyers are usually the narrowest areas of homes, which can make them feel a bit restrictive and claustrophobic. Custom mirrors can be used to combat this by making these pass-throughs seem bigger than they really are. Some homeowners opt for single, large custom mirrors in their halls or foyers, while others choose to line the walls with galleries of mirrors. If you’re working with an interior decorator, he or she will be able to help you determine what is best in your case.



Some people aren’t fond of having mirrors in their bedrooms, but they can add a glam factor you can’t get using any other decorative pieces. If you have a sitting area in your bedroom suite, consider adding a mirror above a credenza or side table. Or, if your bedroom is more compact, think about using a mirrored piece that doubles as artwork above your bed.
