Oversized wall mirrors are definitely a trend right now. With their ability to fill even the darkest spaces with light and their usefulness in general, large wall mirrors are a great choice for large and small living space alike.
We put together a list of the best oversized mirrors and tapped some of our favorite interior designers to give us the inside scoop on how to decorate with them.
The Oversized Round Mirror
Mila Talibov of Boston’s Studio Verticale explains how to decorate with these pieces,
“Oversized mirrors are great on an empty wall or above a sofa. They could be hung flat or at a slight angle to the wall to ‘show’ the furniture arrangement. Also great over mantels, headboards, credenzas, and console tables.”
A round mirror above a sofa is a great look as its circular shape counter balances the angles of the sofa beneath it. What’s more, round, large mirrors (especially frameless) are still quite difficult to find, so you will have a piece that is both elegant and unique.
The Oversized Floor Mirror
Perhaps the most essential of all the oversized mirrors is the leaning mirror. Some consider it a must have in your bedroom or walk in closet, and I agree! There is no better way to check out your look than with a large leaner.

How to Hang an Oversized Mirror
Make sure of the type of wall you have. Drywall or plaster?
If your mirror already has the hardware , it is safe to hang with that hardware.
Make sure you know the weight of the mirror. There are certain tools and mechanisms you may need to use depending on the weight.
Find your stud in the wall after you decide where you want to hang it.
Accurately measure the area on the wall between the hooks with a piece of tape to know where to drill in the wall.
Use a level to make sure that you have measured properly
Drill your hardware into the stud that you will use to anchor the mirror.
When you have your hardware in the wall, before you hang the mirror put bumpers on the bottom so you wont scratch your wall, and then hang your mirror.
