Choosing The Right Mirror For Your Budget & Interior Space

A wall mirror can be a serious asset when you’re decorating. Because it reflects light, it helps brighten and widen even the smallest and darkest of rooms to make them more comfortable and inviting. A wall mirror can also add a decorative look to your room, and it makes an ideal focal point for your space. The key is choosing the right mirror for your room and the look that you want to create.

Consider Size

The first decision to make when you’re choosing a Schönn wall mirror is how large it should be. The size of the mirror should be influenced by a couple of factors – the size of the wall that you’re placing it on and how big an impact you want the mirror to make in your room. If you’re hanging the mirror on a large wall in your living room, dining room or bedroom and you want to make a bold statement, opt for an extra-large mirror, measuring between 63 and 80 centimeters on each side. If you’re using the mirror as an accent on a small wall near your entryway, you may need one as small as 25 centimeters on each side. Measure your wall so you know how much space you have to work with and determine how much of it you want the mirror to fill.

Schönn has a curated selection of mirrors, available online, to perfectly suit your interior space.

Schönn’s Honey Mirror is perfect for large walls and any interior space. Hang Honey in a small room to create the illusion of a larger interior.

Schönn’s Cara Mirror is perfect for smaller interiors. Adorn over Cara’s placement in your living room, bathroom, or entrance hall.

Consider Shape

While square and rectangular options, like Schönn’s Harri mirror, are usually the most common, you can find wall mirrors in a variety of shapes. A square or rectangular mirror offers the most traditional look, but choosing a mirror in an unusual shape can bring attention to a wall even if the mirror is small or lacks a decorative frame. For a simple but striking look, opt for a circular or oval wall mirror. We suggest Schönn’s Honey and Cara mirrors. 

Traditional Look

Schönn’s Harri Mirror is a Spaulding mirror with a wooden frame, perfect for all interiors, modern or traditional.

Modern Look

Schönn’s Honey Mirror adds a modern touch to all interiors with its unusual shape and gold frame.

Consider Style

Some of Schönn’s wall mirrors have minimalist or bare frames – it’s their size or shape that gives them a strong presence in your room. When you’re shopping for a mirror, however, you can also opt for a style with a frame that packs a decorative punch all its own. Choose a simple wooden or metal frame for a sleek, streamlined look. Schönn’s Stormi Mirror adds a dramatic and luxurious touch to all interiors with its arched shape and a striking frame that floats a marble shelf below for bonus storage.

This glass mirror and the highly polished, curved brass frame interact creating an attractive and harmonious play of light and reflections, effortlessly bringing a sophisticated atmosphere to any environment.

Consider Colour

If you decide on a mirror with a decorative frame, choose an option in a colour or wood that works with the rest of the room’s decor. A basic black, white or wood tone frame can coordinate with virtually any decorating scheme. Gilded metals like gold or silver add a posh look that fits formal or modern decor well.  You can simply choose a frame in a colour that’s much darker or lighter than the wall, or opt for a frame with a different undertone than the wall shade to create a natural contrast.

Schönn’s Honey mirror is available in white, black, light grey, dark grey, gold and light brass.

Schönn’s Harri mirror is fully customisable with a wide selection of wood and solid wood finish options.
