Home Mirror Types | How to Use Them Efficiently

Mirrors are an affordable way to create depth and enhance beauty in any home. The right decorative mirror can bring in more light and increase the aesthetic appeal of a room. Here are a few types of mirrors and areas where you can place them throughout your home.

Common Types of Mirrors

The three most common types of mirrors for home decor are:

  1. Plane mirror — These are flat mirrors that reflect images in their normal proportions, reversed from left to right. This is the most common type of mirror used in bedrooms and bathrooms.
  2. Concave Mirror — Concave mirrors are spherical mirrors that curve inward like a spoon. They create the illusion of largeness and are typically found in bathrooms and bedrooms.
  3. Convex Mirror — Convex mirrors are also spherical mirrors. However, unlike concave mirrors, they bulge out and distort the reflected image, making it smaller.

With Glass Doctor®, you can create custom mirrors for your home that are functional, decorative, or both.
