An easy way to create a lighter, brighter space.

Mirrors are one of the best decor choices you can make for your interior, especially in your living room. Why? Living room mirrors – regardless of shape and size – are ideal for making your space feel bigger, brighter and lighter.

Angle your mirror correctly and the benefits increase. Interior stylist at ScS, Vicki Foster, explains: 'Placing a mirror in the correct place in a living room allows you to optimise natural light. Capturing beautiful light inside will not only make a room feel bigger, but happier too.'

This means not only is the look of the room transformed with the addition of a stylish mirror but the mood too. What's not to like?

Catherine Cornelissen, founder & director of Decoralist, echoes this sentiment: ‘The right mirror in a living room has the ability to totally transform your space. Not only will a mirror improve your space aesthetically, but it will also work wonders for your space from a practical perspective, lifting your room to feel lighter, brighter and bigger.

Sleek wall mirrors with understated frames are perfect for minimalist living rooms, whilst decorative living room mirrors (such as those with ornate frames) work well as accent pieces. Fill empty corners with tall leaner mirrors, and choose arched mirrors above your mantelpiece.

‘If you select a mirror that is not only functional but equally attractive and unique in appearance, you'll also create a focal point that can tie your whole space together,' Catherine adds.

However, Sam Hood, co-founder and chief creative 0fficer at Amara, suggests avoiding the urge to go overboard: ‘Mirrors also work well in combination, to help reflect light off each other and around the room, but as a general rule you should only add mirrors to a maximum of two walls in a room, as adding too many can make guests feel uncomfortable.'

Unlike a hallway mirror, there are lots of options available when it comes to choosing a prime location for the mirror in your living room. Consider what will be reflected in your mirror, aside from lots of lovely light.

Martin Waller, the founder of Andrew Martin, says: ‘Think about what you want to reflect: through a mirror, you can spot your favourite artwork from an unforeseen corner of the room, hang one opposite a window to bring the outside in or in a passageway as a keyhole for what the next room has in store. Bigger is always better to instil more light and space in a room.’

Vicky McAlwane, the co-founder of luxury homeware retailer Auburn Fox, agrees: ‘Do you want sunlight to shine on your favourite furnishings at midday? Do you want to be able to see the art on the back wall of the room? Capturing objects in mirrors grants them centre stage.’

Firstly, the reflection of light creates a brighter and more airy feeling of space. Yvonne Keal, senior product manager at Hillarys, explains: ‘Placing your mirror on a wall adjacent to a window or glass door will trick the eye into thinking your living room is larger and will also bounce light into all corners of your space.’

And just as importantly, mirrors are both functional and decorative, making them incredibly versatile and a brilliant way of adding interest to your home. Sam agrees: ‘Mirrors also work well as a focal point for a room. This is where statement mirrors in particular really have their impact, helping to add some drama to a room and reflect your personality.’Keep reading to discover the best living room mirrors for 2023...
