Large floor mirrors
A large, leaner mirror provides you with an open and airy feeling. You can place these almost anywhere – you can even use them for adding length and openness to your home’s foyer or hallway. Floor-length mirrors will instantly make a room feel much bigger. These work well as accent pieces, because they are so big. They are especially useful when placed near windows as they add light reflection into a space while also filling that space with length that naturally draws your eye upward and makes it seem more open. If placed on each side of a window frame, they create an interesting pattern that is reflective of sunlight when it streams through those windows.
Framed wall mirror
Whether placed in an entryway or above your living room mantel, framed wall mirrors are elegant and versatile. Even a small mirror can make a big impact when it’s hung vertically—try grouping several together. If you have an L-shaped section of wall, hang one horizontally so that its frame runs across your corner like picture molding; line up three more vertically on either side. This type of statement-making arrangement works well with rich tones or bold colors and is great for making small spaces appear larger than they are.
Dressing table mirror

If you want, you can even invest in two or three 7 foot mirrors so that there are always more than one available in case someone wants their look checked out before going out. This is especially great for young ladies who want advice on their dress and/or makeup! Also, with home design constantly changing and maturing, floor length mirrors are becoming more and more common; being able to use multiple versions of it certainly has its appeal!
