Types of Large Mirrors

The bigger dimensions set up new ways to decorate with mirrors, the main purpose is to give a sense of wider space in smaller places, but with new technologies, there are a whole new array of uses for Large mirrors, first, you should consider the orientation:

- Landscape Large Mirrors:

Placed in large bathrooms with custom vanities or also in large but narrow corridors. these mirrors are usually very wide with a limited height of about 60 to 80 cm. (24 to 31 inches).

- Portrait Large Mirrors:

Popular in Bathrooms with taller ceilings or in makeup tables, they can cover the complete wall starting from the vanity itself, some may go up to 2 meters tall (78 inches)

- Dressing Mirrors or Full-Length Mirrors:

Full-length mirrors allow you to see your complete reflection from head to toe. They are usually more in height than the width and can be found almost anywhere around the house. There are several restrictions though, regarding their positioning to be able to see yourself completely, you must be careful when placing these mirrors as if their position is not right, you won't be able to see yourself entirely, either missing part of your head or lower body. A common size for these mirrors is 100 to 200 cm (40 to 78 inches tall) with 40 to 55 cm (16 to 21 inches) wide.

- Self-standing Mirrors:

The name speaks for itself, contrary to wall mirrors, the self-standing variants can be easily brought along to wherever you need, giving them more flexibility to move around the house.

Some of our Dressing mirrors come with dual options, letting customers have their mirrors hanged on the wall or self-standing!

They are usually not as tall as the Full-Length Mirrors, having their maximum height up to 170 cm (70 inches).

Some popular choices for households looking to purchase mirrors in terms of sizes are the following ones:

- Landscape Large Mirrors:

Other standard sizes are 1200x600 or even 1000x600 for medium-sized rooms.
