Gorgeous Accent Mirrors – The Most Beautiful Styles & How To Hang Them
I LOVE accent mirrors! They are like exquisite jewelry for a room in my opinion! Like beautiful rugs and lighting, they make such a huge impact in a room.
If you’re wondering how to bring life to a boring room – add an accent mirror. I have lots of gorgeous styles below to choose from!
Mirrors are a key decorating piece and are so incredibly functional!
They can turn a room from frumpy to fabulous in an instant. There are so many statement mirror frames, from geometric, starburst, greek key and curved!
Accent mirrors offer useful reflection to check out your clothes, hair or makeup as you get ready for the day or head out the door!
They will make space feel larger and look brighter while adding a decorative touch to complement your room’s style.
Their third function is that they are used by designers and decorators to create a beautiful focal point in a room that doesn’t have one!

WHERE TO HANG ACCENT MIRRORS
- Don’t hang or lean a mirror where it will get knocked over by kids or pets
- If you are hanging them along a staircase wall make sure they are completely secure on the wall and won’t fall down if they are accidentally hit by someone walking by them.
- above a console table in a foyer
- above a living room fireplace
- above a dresser
- hang one above each nightstand beside a bed
- above a headboard
- above a sink
- leaned up on a bare wall
- hung on a narrow wall in between two windows
- above a dressing table
- on a laundry room wall
HOW HIGH TO HANG ACCENT MIRRORS
An accent mirror should be hung so the bottom is 8-10 inches above a mantel, sofa, headboard or table. If you’re hanging a full length one on a wall make sure it’s in the middle of two windows or door frames and hung so the top is 55-65 inches from the floor.
I bought this mirror at HomeGoods a number of years ago.
HOW TO HANG ACCENT MIRRORS
I hang a lot of my accent mirrors with Command hooks. I use this velcro style.
For heavy mirrors I use these mounting hooks to ensure they stay put.
WHAT SIZE TO CHOOSE
My rule of thumb is to go big and make sure the size relates to the room and gives balance.
Here’s how to choose the right size:
Tape out the dimensions of a mirror you’re interested in, on the wall with painter’s tape. Step back and look at it. Does it look too big? Too small? Just right?
