Where should a mirror be located in a bedroom? In my opinion the most logical place to have a mirror is on your dressing table. A dressing mirror is a very functional piece of furniture. It is usually placed there for convenience in changing your clothes or taking care of makeup or hair.
Dressing tables are very popular with contemporary home decorators. Contemporary home decorators usually prefer functional, easy to clean pieces of furniture to over complicated decorative mirrors. Functional mirrors can include fashion mirrors and designer mirrors. Fashion mirrors are popular because many people use them to determine what type of clothing to wear for the day. Designer mirrors are very expensive decorative mirrors.
Some mirrors can be very decorative in a formal room like a formal bedroom. The proper location for a mirror depends on the style of the room. In a formal room such as a bedroom, the mirror placement can be towards the door so the guest can see their reflection when they enter the room. If the mirror is framed in wood it should be placed on the dresser or in the corner of a room.
Bedroom mirrors can also be decorative. A bedroom mirror should not be used to examine yourself while shaving or applying make-up in the morning. Bedrooms are not the best place to display decorative mirrors. Bedrooms are usually more personal and quiet places to be. Placing a decorative mirror against a wall between the bed and the window can be very aesthetically pleasing.
Another location where mirrors should not be displayed is in the bathroom. Bathrooms are not the best place to display unnecessary ornaments. In the bathroom mirrors should not be overlooked either. An appropriate mirror to display in the bathroom should be one that projects the beauty of the wall behind it. A wall mirror over a bath tub can cause the appearance of a cluttered bathroom. In addition, an improperly placed mirror may reflect an unflattering view.
Where should a mirror be located in a bathroom for children? Children are extremely active and require plenty of attention from anyone in their household. Children’s mirrors should be displayed where it is easily accessible by children and does not create an obstacle for the child to reach. Placing a mirror near a play area of a bedroom can add fun to the room.

Where should a mirror be located in a bathroom? A bathroom vanity mirror is placed over a bathtub or shower stall. Bathroom mirrors should never be placed against a wall because the reflections of one person’s image on another person’s face will always be distorted. A bathroom vanity mirror can be placed above the sink to reflect light and create an illusion of a larger space.
Where should a mirror be located in the hallways or anywhere that there is hard to see? Hallways make it difficult to navigate to the other rooms in a house. A wall mirror placed in a hallway near the entrance to a home could provide some illumination. This would be most useful if the mirror did not have frames. Bathrooms are not the same as a hallway because there is often a window nearby. Placing a mirror on a window gives the illusion of a larger room.
Where should a mirror be located in a child’s bedroom? A bedroom is a child’s private sanctuary. The use of adult mirrors should be limited to situations that are necessary and not decorative. A standard bedroom mirror should not be a decorative item but should be used to view grooming items and apply makeup.
