Reading up on Domino’s shopping guides is like having your own personal product concierge. We do the tedious part—deep-dive research, hands-on testing, and tapping experts for advice—so all you have to do is hit “add to cart.” That’s why we call them Simply the Best.
Floor mirrors are a hardworking home accessory that don’t get the credit they deserve. Not only can they can be placed in any room—a bedroom, living room, hallway, entryway, you name it—but they bring numerous benefits. Reflect light? Create the illusion of a larger space? Allow for a last glance at your outfit before heading out the door? Yes, yes, and yes.
As you’re shopping for a floor mirror, consider the frame, height, and overall vibe you’re hoping for. There are simple wood designs and retro asymmetrical ones. There are neutral classics and vibrant standouts. To help narrow down your options for the reflective object, we sleuthed out the best floor mirrors for all types of spaces and design styles. Read on for our top picks.
- The shapely silhouette: West Elm Mid-Century Asymmetrical Floor Mirror
- The selfie backdrop: Gustaf Westman Chunky Mirror
- The subtle color pop: Joss & Main Pink Modern & Contemporary Full-Length Mirror
- The affordable one: Target Wood Arched Floor Mirror Walnut
- The inset profile: CB2 Acacia Wood Floor Mirror

The Shapely Silhouette: West Elm Mid-Century Asymmetrical Floor Mirror
Height: 65.75 inches | Frame: Eucalyptus wood | Includes anti-tip hardware: Yes
What we like:
- Surprising amoeba-like shape
- Can be hung in a variety of ways
- The wood frame is sustainably sourced
- Won’t tip, but less of base reaches the floor due to shape
Why we chose it: It’s a little retro, a little modern, and a whole lot cool.
This asymmetrical mirror, inspired by Italian mid-century design, is the moment and won’t melt into any background. Just as functional as it is fun, the wavy motif brings movement to a room, and the substantial height allows for easy glances at your whole outfit (no need to worry about this unique silhouette creating a wonky funhouse effect either). We love it propped against a wall, but if you decide to hang this one, your options for orientation multiply.
The Selfie Backdrop: Gustaf Westman Chunky Mirror
Height: 73.23 inches | Frame: Wood | Includes anti-tip hardware: No
What we like:
- Extra-wide and tall
- Its design is confident and colorful
- Handmade in Sweden
- Made to order, with a lead time of 6 to 8 weeks
- A serious investment piece
- Prepare to pay international shipping costs
Why we chose it: This cheeky mirror brings life to both your space and your outfit checks.
If it’s possible to be in love with a piece of decor, that’s what we feel for this mirror. The colorful showstopper isn’t sheepish and would be right at home in any bold space. It deserves to be gawked at by guests, though, so we’d place it front and center in a living room. It’s both wide and tall, with that unforgettable border, so you can nab an OOTD pic with or without the frame in the, well, frame.
The Subtle Color Pop: Joss & Main Pink Modern & Contemporary Full-Length Mirror
Height: 67 or 83 inches | Frame: Stainless steel | Includes anti-tip hardware: No
What we like:
- The slim pink frame is understated and elegant
- The 83-by-48 inch option is the largest on this list
- Superfast delivery—3 to 5 days
- Enlist another set of hands on delivery day—it’s very heavy
Why we chose it: This heavy-duty mirror adds the prettiest pop of pink like a piece of art.
It doesn’t matter if you’re outfitting a feminine bedroom or a modern living room, this mirror’s understated pink frame brings a liveliness that any decor setup could benefit from. (It’s also available in black, white, and satin brass, if you prefer.) Though the beautifully arched floor mirror doesn’t include anti-tip hardware, it weighs 56 pounds; so as long as you don’t place it in a high-traffic area, it’s not going anywhere.
The Affordable One: Target Wood Arched Floor Mirror Walnut
Height: 65 inches | Frame: Walnut-finish pinewood | Include anti-tip hardware: Yes
What we like:
- The most affordable option on this list
- Slim enough to fit in tight spaces
- Lightweight, so it’s easy to rearrange
- Not the highest quality glass
Why we chose it: This lightweight, budget-friendly favorite is a breeze to move from room to room.
This mirror is an easy “add to cart” decision. Not only do the arched shape and wood frame complement just about any style, but it’s at a good price point, too. (At least when it comes to mirrors.) If you’re the constantly rearranging type, this mirror weighs just 15 pounds, so you can move it from a hallway one week to your bedroom the next. But keep in mind that if you have pets, children, or clumsy elbows, you’ll want to secure this to the wall or keep it in a low-traffic area.
The Inset Profile: CB2 Acacia Wood Floor Mirror
Height: 76.25 inches | Frame: Acacia wood | Includes anti-tip hardware: Yes
What we like:
- Handcrafted from high-quality wood
- Adds dimension
- Substantial height
- The white wash is currently on back order
- Cannot be mounted
Why we chose it: This stately mirror provides depth and presence to any room.
We all want an accent at home that is one of a kind, and this handsome option with variegated grains gives that exact feeling without the custom wait time. Here’s betting you’ll have this mirror forever, never tiring of its understated elegance and, of course, ability to add dimension. Weighing 70 pounds, it’s hefty and also handcrafted from solid (and sustainable!) acacia wood.
Best Playful Beauty: Pottery Barn Naturalist Ball Full Length Mirror
Height: 53.25 inches | Frame: MDF | Includes anti-tip hardware: Yes
What we like:
- Whimsical and lighthearted feel
- Adds fun texture
- Can be hung, if preferred
- The shortest mirror on this list
- Currently on preorder
Why we chose it: With a frame full of whitewashed wood balls, this mirror instantly evokes a fun feeling.
Design can be seriously stylish without being serious. Take this floor mirror, for instance, which adds a wink of cheekiness. (We especially love the thought of it propped against a wall of a walk-in closet or all-white bedroom.) Note that this is the shortest mirror on our list, so, depending on how tall you are, you may have to back up a bit for a true full-length view.
The Wood-Framed Wonder: Urban Outfitters Ashton Mango Wood Mirror
Height: 67 inches | Frame: Mango wood | Includes anti-tip hardware: No
What we like:
- The wood frame is classic
- Tall but still fits in most spaces
- Available in 3 washes of wood
- If you need to return it, you’ll be charged a 15 percent restocking fee
- The wood hue and grain may differ from the photos
Why we chose it: Beautifully framed in understated mango wood, this one will look good now and forever.
Whether your decor style veers toward modern, rustic, offbeat, or otherwise, a wood-framed mirror is bound to fit in. This Urban Outfitters design brings a down-to-earth feel no matter what furniture it’s paired with. Since each cut of wood is unique, it has a bespoke quality and is bound to stay in your home for decades to come. This floor mirror is also available in a black and white wash, but the classic brown gets our vote.
Best Oversize Head Turner: Rejuvenation Arched Metal Framed Floor Mirror
Height: 66 or 72 inches | Frame: Brass or bronze | Includes anti-tip hardware: Yes
What we like:
- A standout design in a substantial size
- Available in 2 finishes
- Arrives with white-glove delivery
- Too heavy to move on your own
- Does not wall mount
Why we chose it: This magnificent floor mirror is nearly as wide as it is tall.
When floor space isn’t an issue (lucky you!), go big and go bold. This mirror will make the room feel significantly brighter—so much light bouncing around!—and significantly bigger, too. It’s also available in a tall and slim version if that’s more your speed, but we have heart eyes for the wide one. Come delivery day, be sure you know exactly where this mammoth piece will live. The white-glove service allows you to be hands off, but if you want to move it later, you’ll need a friend, since it weighs 110 pounds.
The Bathroom Basic: Amazon NeuType Large Full Length Mirror
Height: 71 inches | Frame: Aluminum | Include anti-tip hardware: No
What we like:
- Sleek, simple design
- Made of shatterproof glass
- Comes with hanging hardware
- Occasionally low in stock
Why we chose it: Thanks to its anti-rust treatment and waterproof materials, this floor mirror is a must for any bathroom.
Moisture is no match for this mirror. Its aluminum alloy frame is made of waterproof materials that are ultra-durable. What that means: no rust and no warping, even in humid spaces like a bathroom. The frame is thin, too, which is especially helpful in a small space, and since it can be propped up against a wall, this mirror is a good fit for a rental where big holes in the wall are not landlord approved.
The Slim-Space Star: The Citizenry Hinoki Wood Floor Mirror
Height: 59 or 70.8 inches | Frame: Hinoki wood | Include anti-tip hardware: No
What we like:
- Easily fits in tight spaces, like a hallway or entryway
- Barely there but beautiful design
- Handcrafted in Japan
- Returns are charged a $65 fee
Why we chose it: It’s simple, it’s stunning, and it fits in any space.
When square footage is limited, opt for an elongated mirror like this economical design by the Citizenry. At just 14.5 or 18 inches wide, it marries the best of Scandinavian sleekness with Japanese sensibility—and makes for an easy fit in tight spaces. It’s handcrafted in Japan by a fourth-generation workshop (of course it is!), with each mirror taking the artisans more than 10 days to complete. It’s so effortless that when guests compliment it, you’ll be tempted to respond, “Oh, this old thing?”
We’ll be daydreaming about the Brazos Mirror from the Future Perfect for a while. Its price tag is nothing to scoff at, but its stately design makes it an instant heirloom.
How We Chose These Products
When shopping for the best floor mirrors—tough job, huh?—we first turned to brands that consistently deliver high-quality home goods. Such a substantial piece isn’t something you buy willy-nilly, so these mirrors had to be pieces that will last. A sturdy frame, whether wood or metal, was a must. An interesting shape was as well. Mirrors are investment pieces, so we selected designs that you won’t get tired of.
Our Shopping Checklist
Style is routinely at the tippy-top of our shopping checklist, and here’s betting it is for you, too. The good news is, there’s no need to skimp on style when it comes to floor mirrors. There are plenty on the market with an interesting design, so don’t settle for anything less.
Hate to break it to you, but size does matter. At least when it comes to mirrors. Too short and you won’t get a good head-to-toe view of your outfit. Too wide and it won’t fit in certain slim spaces. We chose floor mirrors with a variety of widths and heights, so get out your measuring tape and determine the best fit for your space.
Floor mirrors come in a variety of shapes. Rectangles are classic and so are arched designs. Then there are the shapes that don’t take themselves too seriously, like wavy and asymmetrical. We made sure to include all of those silhouettes on this list.
Q: How do you secure a floor mirror?
Some floor mirrors, including many of our favorites, include anti-tip hardware (and step-by-step instructions) that will ensure your mirror and the wall keep kissing. If your mirror doesn’t come with a set, you may want to consider buying one separately. Securing the mirror to a wall is always a smart idea, but it is especially important if you have little ones or four-legged friends who may bump into it by accident.
Q: How tall should a floor mirror be?
There are no rules for size as long as the mirror is proportioned to the room. “It’s important to consider the size of the mirror in relation to the size of the space, as well as the feeling you are hoping to create by introducing a floor mirror,” says Peyton Helsen, interior designer at Rumor Designs. For a subtle glance at your outfit before heading out the door, a slim, understated mirror will do. If you’d prefer a showstopping focal point, go big and bold. Just keep in mind: The shorter the mirror, the more space you’ll need in between you and the mirror so you can get a head-to-toe view.
Q: Besides a bedroom or living room, where else can I put a floor mirror?
“Floor mirrors can really go in any type of room,” says Julie Brayton, president/lead designer of Brayton Interiors. “They are great in bedrooms for functional purposes, but they’re also nice to add in unexpected places to add depth and drama.”
Consider the end of a dark hallway. “By placing a floor-length mirror at the end of a hallway, it draws attention and adds visual interest to a typically mundane area within a home,” says Helsen. She also recommends using a floor mirror to play up a room that offers different wall treatments. “If there is a wall that features wood paneling, wallpaper, or an accent paint color, it can be fun to place a floor mirror on that wall,” she says. “By doing this, you will see the finishes of the opposite wall reflected, which can help tie the room together.”
The Last Word
When deciding on the best floor mirror for you and your space, don’t even think about sacrificing style. Mirrors may be an investment, but there are many on the market that are equally functional and cool—and all will remind you that your outfit is so good.
