Quick Bit of Inspiration
It is totally normal to feel that your space may not be fit for a big round mirror.
Below are some photos from friends and design connoisseur of big round mirrors in well oriented spaces.
Large Round Wall Mirror
Oversized 60" Frameless Wall Mirror designed by MirrorCoop
The extra large round mirror (64" in diameter) shown in these photos is from a Scandinavian style redesign in Los Angeles, where MirrorCoop acted as both the interior designer and furniture builder.
We built a series of custom wood standalone pieces, a custom sofa, and custom artwork. For the mirror, our client had a very specific idea.
She was in love with the idea of a large, chic frameless mirror for two reasons.
First, she wanted the space to be much brighter. There is one bay window (just out of frame) but the back of the room and side with artwork has no natural light.
The large mirror reflected the bay windows light into the far corner of the room, provide a natural illumination for the entire room.
Second, we looked at different frames but each finish contrasted too much with the decor of the entire interior.
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.
Altogether, we loved the chic, minimal look and, as far as function is concerned, the room received a much needed light bounce.
In light of these considerations, we decided on a frameless, minimal mirror that bounced light and had a versatile, timeless appeal.
About the Decor & Furniture
All artwork is original from California based artists, and the desk is made with one of our favorite woodworkers (Hi David!!).
The table is from Hive. I've been a massive fan of Hive for a while. Check them out -- the prices are fair and the collection is very comprehensive and updated regularly. Of all the big Modern furniture retailers online, I use them the most.
Overall we wanted to capture the Scandinavian aesthetic. My client loved the interior styling of Fantastic Frank and other famous purveyors of the Scandinavian style.
Walls are painted with Farrow & Ball's Strong White, which looks slightly yellow on their website but really isn't.
We decided on a simple grey/white, Scandinavian furniture, and, of course, this beautiful mirror to make that vision a reality.

About the Mirror & Benefits
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.
As any article on decorating with mirrors will say that 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 knick-knacks in your cabinet, putting mirrors behind them will bring to life your collections as well as show the backs of your valuables.
Finally, your large round mirror might 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.
Wondering what constitutes an extra large round mirror from a large round mirror?
We like to think of large round mirrors as being about 26" wide. Extra large round mirrors will be 30" wide and beyond.
