Free Standing Mirrors
Free standing mirrors are generally higher quality than the ones that can be found in your bathroom, or on the back of your bedroom door. The effect you get is usually the same though, however where these larger mirrors excel is giving you a great view of your entire figure. Another strong point of these mirrors is the design and decoration. They are much better at this than your standard wall mounted mirror. Elegance and beauty are two common senses that can be achieved through the use of these mirrors. They give a timeless, yet modern feel and are classy and chic. Besides providing a stunning elegant look to your home, they are also very practical and functional. Many come with posts, which you can use to drape ties or hats over, or even necklaces.
What sizes do they come in?
You can buy large or small ones, just like hanging mirrors. Full length mirrors are perfect for taking a look at that new tuxedo, dress or pair of shoes. A medium sized mirror can stand on your dresser, and provides a good base for applying make up, or plucking your eyebrows. If you are looking for a travel mirror, then the small style free standing one will be perfect for you as they are very compact.
If you are looking at a full length mirror, your budget will need to be in the region of around $100-$300. They come in many varying types of wood, both light and dark. If you have a little girl, you can buy plastic framed mirror. These come in a standard rectangular or oval shape, and would be a perfect fit for her room as they are a little more durable than the other kinds.
What kind of price can you expect to pay for one?
If you are on a bargain hunt, a good place to find a full length mirror would be at a garage sale, or auction.
Unusually, the medium sized standing mirrors can end up being quite pricey. It’s not unusual to see one costing several hundred dollars. Strangely enough, many of the smaller mirrors can also be pricier than the full length ones! If you are looking for something cheap, then you will find several different smaller style mirrors for around $50. The very small compact type traveling mirrors normally sell for between $10 and $20. This is very reasonable compared to many bathroom accessories for sale on the market.
Standing mirrors are very diverse in design, and are very beautiful. Sleek modern designs are quite the hot choice at the moment, although the antique look is still very popular. Many types stand on three legs, while others have a sturdy backing similar to the ones seen on a picture frame. Some free standing vanity mirrors will even offer a practical storage solution for you by having storage space in the back of them.
There is something special and unique about having standing mirrors in your room, although your old hanging mirror can provide the same practicality. They are perfect for anyone who is fashion conscious, they work wonders in a make-up studio, and will be loved by a little girl who loves to dress up.
So if you are thinking about buying a new mirror, remember that you are not limited to the dull old hanging type. They are the perfect decor, and are well worth the little extra cost.
