These hallway mirror ideas have the power to lighten and make your dark hallway feel bigger. It’s one of the most well known interior design tricks in the book.
Why? A mirror can create the illusion of a larger space in a room due to its reflective properties. When strategically placed, mirrors can help to enhance natural light by bouncing available light around the room, provide depth, and give the perception of extended dimensions.
So, if you have a dark narrow hallway – a mirror can do much more than just look pretty on your wall. It’s the perfect example of fusing form and function in an interior.
Not sure what will look best? These 17 hallway mirror ideas are the perfect choices for adding light and balance to your beautiful hallway.
17 Hallway Mirror Ideas To Elevate Your Entryway
1.Brushed Metal Effect Round Mirror
If you’re looking for a modern yet classic mirror for your hallway, a round black mirror is a fail safe option.
I’m a massive fan of round or arched mirrors in a hallway as they instil a softness in the space, and can work well with both soft and angular lines on furniture.
The black frame adds definition to a wall and brings a touch of modernity with it.Shop At Dunelm
2. Ornica Medium Organic Shaped Mirror
Blob mirrors continue to gain popularity through interiors. They have a boho quality to them, but can be appreciated in modern hallways too.
They range in size, but just make sure you opt for one that reflects enough of your face and body, a mirror that’s too small will look inadequate and make a hallway feel even smaller.Shop at La Redoute
3. Home Selections Arched Metal Wall Mirror
Yes, yes, yes! I have a very similar arched mirror to this above the mantelpiece in our living room and it is just the most beautiful piece.
A mirror like this does need to be placed on a wall above something such as a console table as the bottom of the frame can feel harsh without something beneath it.
The arch lends an overall softness, with a defining black frame. Pair with other black accents in the hallway to tie the space together.Shop at Amazon
