Small mirrors are handy for looking at your face when shaving or applying makeup, but what do you do when you need to check your full reflection?
Full length mirrors are the answer! But they don't just have to be practical; they can also be beautiful accessories, adding depth and bouncing light around to make the space airy and bright. They also enhance the existing decor by reflecting the textures and tones.
HomesDirect365 has more than 150 full length mirrors to choose from, so you'll be spoiled for choice! Our online store makes the task easier with helpful filters to narrow the search, but we'll also give you a helping hand here with a quick guide to the styles and designs you can expect to see.
While some can be attached to a wall, others are designed to stand by themselves. You can have a leaner mirror that you prop up at an angle against a wall with the base resting on the floor. Or, you can also have mirrors with legs, either in the cheval style (usually with four feet) or a stand that pulls out at the back like an A-frame.
The HomesDirect365 collection includes all of these designs, and it can sometimes be confusing to know which is which - and some can be a combination! However, each item in the HomesDirect365 online shop has a description and a photo or two so you can see exactly what you're getting. In the end, the name of the design isn't that important. What matters is that you get the beautiful item that you want!
Now we've dealt with that, let's take a look at some examples of floor standing mirrors and free standing mirrors.
Classic French designs often have heavy ornamentation and intricate, elegant carvings, and our collection highlights this fact. Even so, the decoration is sometimes understated and reserved, so there's always something to suit all tastes.
An excellent example of classic French design, this mirror is heavily ornamented with floral/foliate carvings around a wide cream coloured frame. It's a substantial piece, measuring 120cm by 89.5cm, making it a perfect focal point.
You'll need a fair bit of space for this mirror, but this is ideal for filling in blank areas of the wall where there's no furniture.
This long and narrow full length mirror exudes class and elegance, with a beautifully carved, arched pediment (the fancy piece across the top of the frame!) with Baroque scrolling and beaded detail around the inner edge.
It's a free standing unit with a hinged stand attached to the back, allowing you to angle the mirror to view your reflection easily. Measuring 180cm by 45cm, it's the perfect size for the job, without taking up too much room.
Whether you opt for black, white, silver or cream, each of these stunning finishes will complement your decor and make a real impression.
Part of our ever popular La Rochelle range, this item is nothing short of stunning.
Expertly crafted from mahogany in the cheval design, it is decorated with intricate carvings of leaves and flowers, with beautifully scrolled feet. The mirror itself is a stylised rectangle shape with sensuous curves and 'wings' at the top end that splay out wider than the supporting arms. It pivots smoothly on the supports so you can tilt it for the best view as you check your outfit ready for that night out.
Some of our customers are fans of industrial decor: pipework, iron, steel, brass, copper, wood, exposed rivets, wire mesh and glass panels - all the features you'd associate with factories and industrial heritage buildings.
The HomesDirect365 online store includes furniture and accessories that reflect this style, including mirrors like these:
A perfect addition to your bathroom or bedroom, this stylish mirror stands by itself on a circular metal base. The frame is curved at the corners and the metal has an aged feel to add character.
However, there's an added bonus: the mirror swivels on pins at the top and bottom to reveal two storage shelves on the reverse side! There's also a handy row of coat pegs for your bathrobe or clothes, making this a thoroughly practical choice.
Standing on four feet, this fits the cheval description, but is very different to the French designs! The tubular black frame forms an elongated oval that pivots in the middle so it can be tilted. The entire frame has a distressed finish to give the impression of age.
It has a slimline design, making it easy to fit into hallways, bedrooms or bathrooms of most sizes. Measuring 176cm by 66cm, it is ideal for most rooms in your home and is handy for checking your appearance before heading out.
If you're after something on-trend in a contemporary style, you can be sure that you'll find plenty of mirrors in our stock that you'll love.
We can't list them all, but here are a few for you to consider:
If you want glamour, this is the mirror for you! A slim silver frame surrounds a wider band decorated with glittering crystal glass gemstones. Inside this, the raised mirror surface stands proud. It measures 135cm by 60cm, so it's easily big enough for the task.
As well as being practical, the crystals in this stunning rectangular mirror catch the light, making this a sparkling addition to any room.
Whether you choose the black or silver bevelled frame, you'll get an eye-catching accessory that makes a statement. It might look simple, but don't be fooled - this is a beautifully made item that will be an asset to any house where contemporary styles are admired.
The stand pulls out at the back to support the mirror and has a safety bar for extra support and sturdiness. At 155cm by 48cm, it's large enough without taking up a lot of room.
