Incorporating a Floor Length Mirror Into Your Home

Incorporating a Floor Length Mirror Into Your Home

A floor length mirror is great tool for making small spaces seem bigger (not to mention they're a lifesaver when you're getting ready in the morning and someone is already in the bathroom). We rounded up a few ways to incorporate a full length mirror into your home's decor--and let us know where yours lives, after the jump.

We've always kept our full length mirror in the bedroom (usually on the back of the closet door). This has been super helpful when space is limited by utilizing vertical space that would otherwise go unused. If you have a little extra space, floor length mirrors look great leaning against a wall amongst a small grouping of objects. Rebecca sets a potted plant next to hers to balance its position in the corner--helping make the spot cozy. Sherry and John lean their floor length mirror in the bedroom (again with a little greenery for a pop of color and balance). We like how they incorporate a small vignette with an accent table dotted with accessories. You can also let your mirror stand alone to make a dramatic statement and think the end of a hallway or entryway would work best.

Apartment Therapy readers, where does your floor length mirror live? How did you incorporate it into your home's decor?
