Dress Up Your Dresser with an Eye-Catching Mirror that Reflects Your Style

Although the bed takes center stage in the bedroom, a dresser with a beautiful mirror is a strong supporting player. Just as a dresser helps reflect your style, so does the mirror you choose to hang or place over it. Dresser mirrors come in numerous styles and sizes.

In general, square mirrors are medium-sized, rectangular ones come in a wider variety of sizes. Oval mirrors create a classic look, and unique shapes – such as geometric – add a touch of modern sophistication while curved lines add softness.

Keeping this in mind, here are some tips to help you choose the mirror that best reflects your style.

Mirror Shape

Select a mirror shape that complements the design of the room. If most of the furniture in the bedroom is square or rectangular, choose a mirror with the same shape. In the room above, the Cascade Dresser Mirror from Broyhill Furniture is the perfect companion piece to the dresser. It echoes the room’s design, which uses straight lines from the bedside tables to the dresser, to the paneling on the walls, and even the ceiling. In addition, the mirror’s beveled glass brings in extra light. A curvier or more ornate mirror would look out of place.

Mirror Frame

A framed dresser mirror can create a great accent for a bedroom. Mirror frames come in different styles, designs, shapes, and colors that can complement your bedroom’s style. You can choose a frame that is in the same wood finish as your bedroom décor to create a balanced, cohesive look. Or, you can choose a gold or silver framed mirror for a more elegant look. A metallic framed mirror will create a focal point in your bedroom, so its size and placement is especially important.

Mirror Size

The dresser should be wider than the mirror, so be sure to measure your dresser before you choose your mirror. The dresser should not only be wider, but taller to create balance between the two pieces. Above, the Sandcastle Arched Mirror from Hooker Furniture balances the dresser: it’s not too small that it seems like an afterthought, and not too big that it overpowers the dresser top.

Personal Style

Of course, in the end it comes down to your personal style. You can find a mirror with an elaborately carved frame, or something simpler. A mirror without a frame will give your room a more modern feel, while a round or oval mirror is perfect if your bedroom style is more romantic.

Your mirror can stand out as a focal point in your bedroom or blend into the room’s décor. There’s no right or wrong choice, and it’s quite likely that whatever you choose won’t stray far from your personal style. As long as you love it, and love your reflection in it, there’s nothing to worry about.
