Full-length mirrors usually come in standard sizes (36, 40, and 48 inches). When purchasing, you should choose one that is at least half the height of the tallest person using it. Of course, the longer the mirror, the closer you can stand to it to see your entire reflection. When placing the big body mirror in your home it should not be placed on the same wall as a window as it’s unable to catch and reflect light. Instead, place the mirror across from or on a wall adjacent to the window in order to capture the best lighting. It is important that although many standing mirrors are meant to lean against the wall, it should be anchored properly to avoid falling, sliding, or tipping over. If your mirror doesn’t include the proper anchor kit, these are easy to obtain and install, requiring just a matter of minutes.
Where Can I Use a Full-Length Mirror?
By incorporating a tall mirror in an entryway or foyer allows guests to check their appearance as they arrive or do a onceover on the way out the door. In a living room or den, a wall mirror makes a striking accent piece or opens up the room. The bedroom or dressing room (need we say this) calls for a good quality mirror; a full-length standing mirror or stand up mirror helps streamline your dressing area while offering a full-length view. Some even offer storage options, allowing space for jewelry or accessories. Floor standing mirrors can also be placed in the corner of a living area or family room to create a light, airy feel and enlarge the space. No matter where your space, it’s important to keep dimensions in mind as the mirror shouldn’t overpower the space either. With so many decorative choices, you're certain to find one that reflects your personal style and coordinates with your home’s decor.
