Mirrors are crucial design elements in the home. Not only do they give you a place to check your reflection, they can also transform your home interiors, letting light bounce around and creating the illusion of larger spaces. Floor mirrors and other large mirrors combine practicality with grandeur and can be used in a multitude of ways. Whether mounted over a vanity, standing proud in an entryway, or incorporated into a gallery wall, floor mirrors combine practicality with grandeur and offer endless options for enhancing your home.

We tapped Kyle, style editor at Joss & Main, to learn more about ways you can upgrade your home with floor mirrors.

The entryway sets the tone for the rest of the house. “Bring drama to your entryway by hanging a full-length mirror over your console table,” says Kyle. “For a style moment, layer with a mix of your favorite decor, like tiny lamps and vases.”

Hallways tend to be sparsely decorated, yet with a little attention, they can really shine. To keep it simple but dramatic, a floor mirror is the way to go. Kyle proposes leaning a large-scale mirror at the end of the hallway, noting that “it’s unexpected and adds length.”

Placing a large floor mirror in the dining room creates the illusion of a window and reflects the light from the chandelier. Kyle suggests hanging multiple mirrors along an open wall in the dining room for an even brighter, more window-like effect.

Rather than mounting a simple frameless mirror on a wall or on the back of a closet door, try placing a large mirror in a convenient spot instead. “Lean a long mirror in the back of a walk-in closet to make the space feel larger (and, of course, to help as you get dressed),” says Kyle.
