Full length mirror
Adding a full length mirror to any room will give a renewed perspective of the space and provide you with a much more spacious and lighter feel. Commonly found in bedrooms, full length mirrors can easily provide greater depth and perspective, especially in smaller or busier rooms.
Whilst full length mirrors are perfect for bedrooms, it can often be difficult to accommodate them elsewhere in your home. If accompanied by a spectacular mirror frame, you can make a full length mirror work well in the right room. Outside of the bedroom, you can expect a full length mirror to be used as more of a decorative piece, as a bold frame provides the room with more than just a renewed perspective.

Measuring the space for your mirror
Whilst people may think it’s straightforward to measure a small or large space where your mirror is going to be placed, this is not always the case. One of the most common issues people have is that the space required for the mirror is not always symmetrical or ‘square’. This can cause a lot of issues when it comes to measuring up, and failure to identify the exact measurements can often result in a ‘rake’. This is where the mirror is slightly too large to fit in the space – even a few mm can make all the difference.
We recommend you take your time when measuring up, especially if you are planning on filling the entire wall or space with the mirror. If you’re measuring an area that’s slightly bigger than the size of the mirror required, you’ll have a little margin for error when measuring the space. If you require slightly bespoke or difficult cut outs within the mirror to accommodate for sockets, skirts and radiators etc. it’s important that these are specified in your dimensions before ordering your mirror.
When enquiring about our mirror Cardiff service, we recommend having the dimensions to hand and ensure the measurements are as accurate as possible. All our glaziers cut mirrors to the precise dimensions, making it essential that all measurements are as accurate as possible.

Top tips for decorating with mirrors
Use a significant floor length mirror at the rear of an item of furniture in limited spaces.
Mirrors that happen to be cut to the same width as opposing home furniture makes the piece look purposeful and prominent as opposed to just put there. Console tables are ideal for modest houses as a backing mirror makes for a great accent item. A considerable mirror on the landing space may also allow you the simple luxury of one very last ” once over ” before you rush out the door. For safety, connect the mirror to your wall with brackets even if you’re resting the mirror on to the floor.
Place a mirror at the rear of a light source.
Putting a reflection behind a light is an excellent tip because it will help push the lights reach in addition to developing a soothing effect when the lighting bounces off the mirror. This creates another accent piece inside your space offering a feeling of depth.
As much of a disaster, it may seem this is where it can be employed as an element of design rather than a stand- alone piece it can generate an effective and pleasant effect within the room it’s in. Whether it is made up of smaller sized tiles of glass or bigger sheets are up to you, however the end effect can result in gratifying if used appropriately. Contemplate shaping the edges of the wall to create a natural edge so that the “fake space” result is cut off since this can be rather disorientating and draw attention away from the genuine space within the room.
When attempting to diversify and design your home, it is frequently challenging for a single aspect to change the dynamic of the space. A mirror has the capacity to modify the dynamic of the entire house because of the exceptional visual attributes it might bring into your family home. Decorative mirrors are a wonderful option if you are searching to produce a feeling of room or space and depth in a room in addition to a functional and sensible feature, such as full- length mirrors inside a hallway, wall- size mirrors in bathrooms and full-length door mirrors on wardrobes.
