A well placed mirror can make an enormous impact on your living spaces, helping you to make the most of natural and artificial light in the home and making the rooms seem larger and airier. Our range is perfectly suited to homes with either contemporary or traditional styling. Depending on the size of oak mirror that you are looking for, they can either be a bold statement or a subtle accent piece. Many people choose to place their large, horizontal oak mirrors over the fireplace in their lounge; this is the ideal spot for helping maximise the look and feel of a living space, and it also provides you with a focal point which draws the eye upward and across with the flow of the room.
Another popular place to hang an accent mirror is in the alcove above a staircase, or on the landing. Again, this can bring light in to an area of the home that can seem dim and cramped due to its enclosed nature; a well placed oak mirror will open up this area and make it appear wider. This is an excellent spot for long, vertical designs as they will be in a convenient location to use as a dressing mirror and can be used by the whole family. Another place you may want to consider placing your mirror is in the foyer of your home perpendicular to your front door, or in your dining room.
Choosing oak mirrors for the home
Our mirrors are all framed in gorgeous solid oak. Oak has plenty of features which make it ideal for use around the home; it is a densely grained hardwood which is extremely resistant to damage from moisture, insects, and fungal spores. This handsome hardwood allows you to enjoy your new piece for years to come, with just a little care. Furthermore, you can also match your mirror with the rest of our oak living room furniture thanks to our matching oak furniture ranges that help customers to create a consistent look within their living room.
Keeping oak mirrors looking their best
To get the most out of your oak frames, clean them gently with a soft clean cloth. If possible, hang oak mirrors away from strong direct sunlight and radiators as these can cause some warping of the wood over time.
