7 Mirrors That Look Like Windows

You know how mirrors can open up a space? They reflect light, space, and movement to make a small room look more expansive. These are a few mirrors that add one more bonus to this phenomenon: they look like windows. With a mirror like one of these, you visually add a valuable architectural feature to your home, in a cinch...

  • 1 Just the placement of this mirror makes it feel like a window. It plays off of the large real window, reflecting natural light and greenery. Image originally from Homes & Gardens via House to Home
  • 3 The Grand Palais Mirror from Ballard Designs is a 24x48" rectangle that can be paired with another to create a square "window" or topped with an arched version to create a Palladian "window". Each mirror is $189.
  • 4 One more from Ballard Designs: this one's a giant and could make quite an impact as a mirror "window". It's the Amiel Arch Leaner Mirror, for $699.
  • 5 Many window-like mirrors purchased from retailers are large, heavy, and expensive to ship. This mirror is from a how-to on making your own from a salvaged window frame, via Craftynest.
  • 6 The Factory Mirrors from Sundance are inspired by the steel-framed windows found in factories. They're available in three sizes and prices from $245 to $495.
  • 7 The Herrion Mirror at Target is made up of 9 beveled panels. It doens't have "mullions", so the divisions in the "window" are subtle. This one costs $299.
