In a world of square and rectangle furniture, a round mirror just might be the interior decorating shape that can shake up your dull room.
Not only will this one accent bring all the advantages that a mirror brings (like reflecting light and creating the optical illusion of more space), but its large size and irregular shape can provide the needed contrast its rectangular relative can’t achieve.
Mirrors will make your room look and feel bigger. Large, round mirrors when positioned over your other furniture like the couch, bed, or fireplace, will not just grab attention towards them but to whatever it is reflecting on the other side as well. This even grander illusion of space is due to its size and a 360-degree view.
Because they reflect light, mirrors always enhance your furnishings. Hang your large, round mirrors to face your cabinets or dresser to bounce light off their surface. You can likewise place large round mirrors inside your wardrobe and bookshelves not for a secret place to fix your hair but to make their insides look bigger and brighter as well. If you display ceramics on your cabinet, putting mirrors behind them will bring to life your collections as well as show the backs of your valuables.
**Frameless mirrors have the advantage that they don’t require the legwork of finding a good, matching finish, so they integrate into interiors seamlessly, which makes changing decor much easier, also.
Finally, any large mirror may be an Objet D’arte on its own. These photos display an extra large round mirror in silver mirrors possessing a seamless beauty, giving the space a simple sophistication.
Our Recommendations for Large Round Wall Mirrors
A cowhide mirror? Now that’s stylish.
This round wall mirror has a wooden frame that’s been painted with an off-white based and then wrapped in cow’s hide. It’s not tacky either (something about the words “cowhide mirror” just sounds a bit tacky).
Instead, this has a sleek, elegant frame that will look great in bedrooms, living rooms, and bathrooms alike.
It would be particularly nice in a room with a lot of pinks or pastels. However, it’s neutral enough that it will pair well with nearly everything. Definitely not the wall mirror for vegans, but a unique product nonetheless.
Best Convex Mirror
Think regular mirrors make your room look bigger? Wait until you get a convex mirror!
These mirrors are just round, they also come outward, giving you a full 180-degree view of the surrounding area. It’s a relatively new trend but it’s one that we’re seeing a lot more people embrace, particularly those with small apartments.
Like antique mirrors, these probably aren’t going to be your go-to mirror for getting ready in the morning. The distorted reflection makes it a bit difficult to grasp what you’re actually looking at. However, if you want a mirror that also functions as a cool decoration, this could be what you need.
They come in a ton of different sizes and have different frames to choose from, so we’re sure that you’ll find something that looks awesome in your room.
It can be tough to find the perfect mirror for a rustic-style home. A metal frame is too sleek and an ornate wooden frame doesn’t fit the aesthetic.
Luckily, this barrel-framed round wall mirror finds the perfect balance! It’s crafted from the same wood used to make beer barrels (like the root beer candies your grandma used to have) and finished with a gorgeous honey-colored lacquer. Place it in your living room, your bedroom or behind a bar to give your space a rustic, Napa Valley-style vibe. And, at roughly 24”, it will make your space look bigger without taking up the entire wall.
Jute is a natural fiber used for all different types of industrial purposes. Farmers love jute sacks because they’re so strong and sturdy and upholsterers love the material because it lasts for decades. We love it because it looks AMAZING!
This round wall mirror is framed with a jute rope border that gives it an organic, hippyish vibe you can’t find anywhere else. You don’t have to be a Grateful Dead fan to appreciate this mirror though. It would look just as good in a farmhouse as it would in a bohemian dorm room. Plus, the earth-toned color will pair nicely with furniture of any color.
Some folks want a mirror that’s a little more ornate without being too gaudy. If that sounds like you, this Kesha antique silver beveled mirror could be what you’ve been looking for.
This round wall mirror is framed with 2 3/4”-wide mirrored tiles that give it an elegant border without being too extravagant. The structural frame is silver, as well, which helps to create a seamlessly sleek aesthetic. It would look great in any bedroom, bathroom, living room or wherever else you want to put it.
