Nowadays it seems that every big box retailer has a selection of infinity-style, or frameless mirrors. So how to tell which one's right for you? We've picked five here and given our two cents on what to look for when choosing your own...
- The West Elm Metal Floor Mirror show at top has a more pronounced brushed nickel frame, meaning it is a little different than the usual infinity mirror. It does have a very similar look, though, and this 30" x 72" version is very reasonably priced at $299.
- DWR's Mondrian Mirror Series comes in sizes ranging from 22" x 22" to 48" x 96" with prices starting at $200 and soaring upwards from there. These models are sturdily built with masonite backing, and the actual mirror kind of "floats" between the aluminum frame edges.
- CB2's Infinity Mirror series appears to have similar "floating" edges and prices start at $99.99 for the 10.5" x 54" size. Keep in mind that costs are most likely saved on backing and other elements that give the mirror a sturdy shape. Also, make sure to check the corners to see that the edges of the mirror are aligned evenly.
- Room & Board's Infinity Mirrors have polished edges (another added cost) and are framed in stainless steel. Along with a range of standard-size mirrors, you can also custom order different shapes and sizes (including round) to get the perfect fit for your space. A 40" x 30" mirror goes for $399.
- Last but not least, is the Ikea Hovet Mirror. We were impressed when we checked this style out in the store, and loved the look of several hung vertically in the hall of this house tour. We would recommend keeping it hung on the wall rather than leaning it, as it might be prone to cracks in the corners.
We'd also love to hear your experience with any of these models or other infinity mirrors that you might have at home. Did they break easily? Stand the test of time? Let us know.
