Favorite Wall Mirrors of Every Shape

Mirrors are really versatile objects when it comes to styling. Not only do they fit nicely above the expected areas, like a bathroom vanity, but many other spaces throughout your home. I’ve compiled my favorite wall mirrors of every shape, including ideas on how to style them!

You can easily add a mirror above a bench or console in an entryway, or at the top of a staircase landing. Layer them behind works of art on your fireplace mantle, hang them behind your nightstands for a curated look (like below), or tuck them behind your bar for a pretty reflection. The possibilities are endless.

Their reflective quality makes spaces appear larger, helps to make multiples look a bit more full- like the bar trick below, and adds balance to a room.

If you’re in need of a couple mirrors, I’ve gathered my favorites of every shape, finish, and price. First up, round mirrors. You guys know I’m a big fan of these, based on my last post!

I’m always attracted to a pretty, feminine mirror. I like to pair these ornate and organic curved mirrors with super modern elements. I love the combination of the beveled edge subway tile with the brass mirror below.

Geometric mirrors have always been a go-to design element for me. I’m attracted to the bamboo framed mirror below…. its so versatile!

Accent mirrors make easy fillers. They can style into a gallery wall or art installation, and are even used for practical purpose… like jewelry hooks on mirror #4.

Perhaps the easiest mirrors to place are minimal mirrors. I love the sophisticated simplicity of these pieces. They can pretty much live anywhere, and are especially great in bathrooms paired alongside sconces.

    I’ve always had a thing for mirrors. I have 2 huge vintage rectangular gold ornate mirrors that im in love with. I’m on the hunt for a circular mirror for our upstairs bathroom right now. I love all the accent mirrors you posted. I think I could find a spot for every single one! I’m definitely needing that one with jewelry hangers…genius. And the drop accent mirror. And I’ve wanted a mirror like the 3rd feminine mirror for a while. Great picks Sarah!

    Placing mirrors is always a tricky task for me. After reading the post I can sense the importance of the shape of the mirror and where they are hanged or placed. A big topic explained in a good way. I like it. Keep it up. Thanks for such a nice and comprehensive post.
