How to hang an oversized mirror?
The following instructions are not specified for a specific wall type. Instead, it provides you with a basic guideline of what to do.
- To hang an oversized mirror, you will need to assess the material your wall that the mirror will be hung from.
- Consider the weight of the mirror and height for the next step.
- Gather the hardware that is needed for your wall type.
For brick walls, heavier-duty tools will be needed. If your wall is drywall, consider the weight and use heavy-duty anchors to support the weight.
- Make sure you use a spirit level to hang the mirror completely level.

Styling tips for oversized mirrors?
- We suggest placing your oversized mirror near a window or lights/lamps as it will reflect the light and bring the illusion of more light coming into the room, and the area opening.
- Experiment with the shapes and style of your mirror, by using a rectangular shape a more traditional style can be reflected into the space, whilst an arched mirror provides a clean and contemporary style.
- By bringing house plants to either side of the mirror, the green space is extended creating a luscious and calm environment- plants also improve our quality of life which is a bonus!
- Placement is key, placing your mirror to reflect a centre point, such as a fireplace or narrow corridor could mean the room you are in changes dramatically. By reflecting on something like a fireplace or window you are optimising the space in the room whilst creating a focal point.
- Add furnishings like a bench or sideboard to add a unique design element, this will help you bring the space together tying in the design styles.
