How high should I hang a mirror over a fireplace?Once you have chosen the perfect Overmantle Mirror for your space, you will also need to consider the positioning. When placing your mirror above a fireplace, you need to measure the distance between the two objects, ensuring the mirror creates picture-perfect décor. Depending on the height of your fireplace, we recommend leaving 3″ to 6″ of wall space between the top of the mantle and the bottom of the mirror. You should avoid positioning the mirror too high as it can lose its relationship with the mantle.
How to decorate a mantel with a mirror
The decoration of your mantel mirror will depend solely on the interior of your home (unless you’re thinking of mixing it up and adding a splash of quirkiness to your chosen room!)
Basic interior design can make a big impact with little effort. Situate your mirror on the mantel and surround with a vase of flowers or a metal statue. Layer other objects of varying heights and create a subtle mantel design that will really display your mirror.
A burst of colour can make a bold design statement when placed in front of a mirror, or even behind. Use a decorative print wallpaper behind your mantel, and let your mirror sit in front to display a focal point to your room. Alternatively, create a reflection with carefully chosen elements which complement each other and invent a theme that sets the tone of your room.
How big should mirror over fireplace be?
When looking for a mantel mirror to hang over your fireplace, choose a size which will work for your room. There are no limits to how big or small you would like your mirror to be, it is simply all about the style you’re going for. Large mantel mirrors create a spacious effect by extending the view of your room. By replacing your wall space, light will reflect into your room and open up your space, creating the illusion of a bigger area. However, you may decide to focus your attention on a narrow mantel mirror, which will be a good choice for a small room.
