Decorating a Rental: Where Do You Need Mirrors?

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Monday, April 04, 2016)

vanity mirrorsWhether you’ve just acquired a rental property or are revamping one you’ve owned for some time, it’s important to decorate it wisely. Hanging mirrors is an important aspect of this because your goals should include making the home functional and visually appealing.

Mirrors have a role to play in both objectives. Everyone uses mirrors when preparing for the day, but mirrors are more than just practical tools. Because of their timeless beauty, they always double as decor items.

Installing mirrors in the right places instantly improves your rental and gives it the edge over competitor’s houses with bare walls.

Vanity Mirrors

Every bathroom in the rental should have a mirror above the vanity, but giving this a little extra attention can make the bathrooms feel special. For starters, consider what mirror shape will best complement each restroom.


For instance, a powder room with a pedestal sink might call for an oval mirror, while the master bath could be instantly glamorized with a framed rectangular mirror.

Besides selecting aesthetically pleasing vanity mirrors, you want to ensure that your renters will have sufficient mirror space. If a bathroom is likely to have multiple users, including a large vanity mirror, or multiple vanity mirrors, can be a thoughtful touch that inclines prospective tenants to choose your house.

Another nice touch when decorating a rental is to include a full-length dressing mirror in each bedroom. Everyone wants to check her or his outfit and complete look before heading out the door for a day at work, school, or elsewhere. A home with full-length mirrors already on the walls will have particular appeal for a busy family.


Entryway Wall Mirror


Make a great first impression on people who come to look at your house by hanging a mirror in the home’s entryway. This instantly gives the space a more elegant feel and can make a little entryway feel roomier. Consider the overall style of the rental house – is it modern? Traditional? Upscale? The answer to this question will help you choose from among the many options for an entryway wall mirror. These include:


     •    Simple polished edge mirror

     •    Beveled mirror
     •    Framed mirror (Many frame styles available)
     •    Traditional mirror shapes
     •    Custom mirror shapes
