Wall-mounted mirrors can give a distinctive character to any type of room, thanks to the many advantages they offer, which must be carefully exploited and balanced when furnishing the home.

Furnishing with one or more wall mirrors allows you to best express your personality and gives a unique look to the different rooms in your home. For an optimal result, it is important to carefully define the size of the individual mirror and its frame, so as to enrich the room in a truly unique way.

When considering the purchase, it is important, first of all, to analyse the characteristics of mirrors used in various furnishing styles. For example, a modern wall mirror is characterised by its clean lines and the fact that it comes in classic geometric shapes. They range from round wall mirrors to rectangular ones, as well as slightly more unusual shapes, such as hexagons, which are often offered in modular and sectional versions. This kind of wall mirror fits perfectly in rooms with minimalist furnishings and neutral colours.

On the other hand, those who want to give a more traditional look to their homes can also consider wall mirrors in a classic version. This option is perfect for those who want to add an elegant and timeless-looking accessory to their décor.

Compared to modern mirrors, classic mirrors generally have a more imposing appearance, even when they are small. This is due to the frames, which are made of worked wood or elaborate metal compositions. Classic wall mirror models range from those inspired by the Renaissance or Baroque style, to early 20th century styles such as Art Nouveau or Art Nouveau. Solutions of this kind are appreciated by interior designers above all for their ability to embellish even the most anonymous wall and give it an unmistakable character.

Those who want to be daring can also consider designer wall mirrors, which are perfect for adding a unique and distinctive touch to the home.

Wall mirrors with distinctive shapes or frames are perfect for adding personality and originality to rooms and can help create intriguing contrasts.

As we have seen, wall mirrors are a versatile resource that suits a wide variety of furnishing styles, allowing you to add a distinctive touch to any room.

For lovers of industrial and vintage styles, mirrors with metal frames or aged finishes are perfect. These models blend harmoniously with the robust and vintage aesthetic that characterises furniture of this style and can be used successfully in entrance halls, hallways or bedrooms.

The ability of mirrors to reflect the history and personality of a room also makes them a key element in eclectic and bohemian spaces, where different shapes and sizes can coexist in a creative mix. In interiors of this type, the best solutions are wall mirror that have a designer design because they complement the eccentric and original lines of the furniture.
