Where do you hang a mirror on the wall?

Will the mirror be purely decorative? Then you can incorporate it into a photo wall to have some variety with different materials. But decorating a wall with just mirrors is also a modern and playful idea. Use different shapes and colours for a unique effect. And if you do this in the right place, with a little light, you can also make the room look much brighter and bigger. Treat mirrors as works of art and hang the focal point or eye-catcher at eye level.

Do you need a practical mirror? Then it all depends on the size of the mirror. A smaller mirror is best hung with its focal point at eye level. Larger mirrors should be hung slightly lower. One-fifth should certainly be above eye level, although with a round mirror it can also be one-third.

Different types of mirrors and where they come in handy

Rectangular, round or perhaps organic. At Peeq, we have mirrors in all kinds of shapes. You can also find multifunctional mirrors here. These are perfect for the hall because they often have a small shelf to store extra things. Although we think this would also come in handy in the bathroom.

Large mirrors in which you can see yourself in full view are ideal to place near your wardrobe. That way you immediately know whether that outfit looks good on you. Even a narrow hall can make good use of this, as it creates an optical illusion that makes the room seem larger.

In the bathroom, a mirror is indispensable, but it doesn't have to be a boring stick-on mirror. Even here you can opt for design. A large round mirror to break up the clean lines always looks good. Mirrors with a unique and organic shape, if large enough, are also recommended here to give the room more character. And to finish it off, you can hang lamps at the top or on the sides for an elegant look.
