Find your perfect garden mirror

As spring is now upon us and the sun is soon going to shine, it’s time to start thinking about your garden, and what better way to create a picturesque display than a stunning mirror?

Why hang a mirror in your garden?

Everybody’s garden is different, from miles of beautiful flowers and grass, to decking complimented with tables and chairs. That’s why everyone has different ideas on why they want to hang a garden mirror.

Mirrors can give you the chance to get creative with your décor. Small garden mirrors can be used to resemble a window, whilst an antique mirror is the ideal classic touch.

Not only this, but you can use mirrors to create the illusion of space. Full length mirrors will expand and create dramatic effects to outdoor space when positioned correctly. By reflecting light off your mirror, you can bounce it into dark corners and almost create a brand-new garden.

How do you use garden mirrors?

Alongside décor, outside mirrors can have major benefits to your garden.

If you’re looking for a mirror to go in a small courtyard garden or displayed on a narrow balcony, your placing could add a boost of light and create the illusion of more space. The dimension will be recreated, reflecting light to the corners of the garden and expanding the area to the human eye.

When choosing an outdoor mirror, don’t forget to take into consideration your current décor. Whether you have a strictly wooden theme or simplicity demonstrates a modern aroma in your garden, discover a frame and colour which will compliment your space.

The positioning will also dictate what your mirror reflects, so ensure you choose some beautifully blossomed flowers over dirty drain pipes!

Are garden mirrors safe?

Outside mirrors are going to come in direct contact with water, sunlight and maybe even animals, which may raise some concerns when choosing your garden mirror.

A problem with using a mirror outside is that if water gets in, it can separate the reflective surface from the glass. However, acrylic mirrors are designed to provide a weatherproof reflection. Non-acrylic mirrors are easily solved with tape over the top of the mirror, to help prevent the water from getting through. So, whether it rains, hails or snows, your mirror is safe.

When it comes to the harm caused to wildlife, one major concern is the possibility of birds flying into the mirror. However, this is rare and can be prevented by sticking an image of a bird or frosting the surface, which will abolish any chance of harming our feathered friends, and your mirror!

Our experts at Mirror Outlet can assure you that as long as a garden mirror is used in a sensible manner and is pointed away from direct sunlight, it is completely safe! Shop Mirror Outlet’s garden mirror collection now.
