A full length mirror is a household staple, but over the years I’ve learned it isn’t just for the closet. But before we get to those examples, I wanted to give you an update on our closet mirror! We’re working on having one custom made to fit our design plan.
Where our current arched mirror is we’ll be filling in that inset in the wall with shoe shelves and we would like a mirror to float in front of it.
The idea came to me when I came across this closet in an apartment in Kiev (source) and I knew it was the perfect solution for our closet. A pivoting mirror floating a couple feet in front of our shoes would still allow us to access them, but disguise them a little bit, too. (We definitely don’t have designer shoes).
I made plans for our version that’s a little wider (see below) and sent them to a metal worker for a bid. I’ll keep you posted on where we end up there!
But before you worry about where the arched mirror will end up that’s currently in our closet, I have at least 20 ideas for spots in our house and none of them are in a closet. A beautiful full length mirror isn’t just for a closet! It’s a great way to bounce light, reflect something beautiful or even make a small space look larger.
We used a full length mirror in our entry to fill a tall space:
Look at this beautiful large mirror above a fireplace in a living room!
Or here in the living room filling in a blank wall near the stairs!
The example below has me eyeing our large blank dining room wall for the arched mirror…
And the one below reminded me not to neglect a stair landing…
Small, dark nooks are practically begging for a show-stopping mirror. In love!
Below we rounded up a few of our favorite full length mirrors for every budget. They are functional wall art, really. So whether you need one for your closet or bathroom, or just can’t figure out what to put on that wall–maybe a big mirror is the answer!

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
