Mirrors are versatile decor elements that fit with an array of styles. They come in many shapes and sizes and may be framed or unframed. They’re a versatile, elegant, creative design solution. Gathering mirrors together is a useful design trick, adding visual interest, making a space feel larger, creating dimension and enhancing the theme of a room. Round/circle mirrors are particularly popular as they function as a statement piece, adding interest to hallways, bathrooms, entryways, living rooms and bedrooms.

Where and how can you use a series of round/circle mirrors?

  • Near a staircase: Lead your eye up the steps with a grouping of small round mirrors. Choose different sizes of mirrors with the same frame. Arrange them as you would a series of family photos. They’ll make a statement!
  • In the bedroom: Make your bed the focal point of the room by artfully arranging three round mirrors with interesting frames above the headboard. Or, try placing matching round mirrors over the bedside tables, creating symmetry and harmony. Consider mounting one large round mirror over the dresser, and placing smaller, complementary, circular mirrors on each side.
  • The dining room: Mount three or five circular mirrors above the sideboard or buffet in the dining room. They’ll reflect any dishes on display, creating a dramatic, bold and modern effect. 
  • The living room: Place a few circular mirrors above the sofa or console table, making the room feel bright and cozy.
  • The entryway: Place three small round mirrors over a foyer table, making a great first impression and setting the tone for the rest of your home. Make sure the bottom of the lowest mirror is four to six inches above the tabletop. Position a grouping of circular mirrors above a bench, providing a welcoming vibe for your guests. 
  • The chimney breast or fireplace: The alcoves on either side of a fireplace are perfect for decorative round mirrors, framing the fireplace and acting as artwork. A series of round mirrors over the fireplace create a dramatic impact and add warmth to the space. 
  • The bathroom: Mount round mirrors above a twin basin for a luxurious feel. Choose mirrors with bold frames to add depth and detail to the room. 
  • The hallway: A series of circular mirrors in a hallway reflect light, visually opening the area and adding character. Try mirrors with a sunburst design. 
  • The home office: Install three small round mirrors above a desk that faces the wall, making the room feel spacious.   
  • A feature wall: Brighten up a statement wall with a collection of round mirrors. Create a striking focal point!

Tips for arranging circular mirrors:

  • When arranging a small group of round mirrors, think in odd numbers (3, 5, 7) as this is appealing to the eye.
  • Consider matching the colour of the frames to the hue of the wall to keep the frames from becoming a distraction. 
  • Mirrors with matching frames look like they belong together.
  • If opting for mirrors with different frames, ensure the materials are complementary. Mix antique silver with matte aluminum. Try gold and dark wood frames together. 
  • Try a common point (style or colour) between mirror frames, ensuring your mirrors look like they belong together. 
  • Space your circular mirrors at random distances, creating a sense of movement. 
  • Vary the size of the mirrors, helping create balance.
  • Don’t place mirrors on more than two walls in a room. Too many mirrors make people feel uncomfortable.
  • Think about what the mirrors are reflecting. Ensure they are not facing an area of clutter.  

Round mirrors brighten and expand the look and feel of a room. They’re great for decorating tight spaces, bringing in light and adding depth. The soft, round shape adds balance and harmony to a room’s aesthetic, calming the mind and creating a serene atmosphere. This simple, classic shape will stand the test of time!
