Mirrors are Essential to a Closet Space

Mirrors are masters at making spaces feel brighter and larger. This is particularly beneficial in walk-in closets, where storage solutions sometimes take up valuable real estate. A well-placed mirror instantly counteracts any feeling of being cramped. Plus, you can dictate the size, shape, framing, and style. This turns your mirror into a design statement that fits seamlessly into the overall aesthetic of your closet.

When you’re getting ready for the day, your mirror is how you check and adjust your outfit so you know you’re leaving the house looking your best. You can customize a new full-length mirror to the precise height and width you need, allowing you to see your full reflection without any awkward cropping.

Walk-in Closet Sizes

The standard size for a walk-in closet is usually about 6 feet wide by 10 feet long. Luxury closets can range from 8 feet by 12 feet, up to 10 feet by 16 feet. Typically, you’ll see one of three walk-in closet layouts:

  1. Single-Sided: Storage exists along one main wall, ideal for smaller spaces. This setup allows for a clear walkway and a spacious feel.
  2. Double-Sided: Storage lines two opposing walls, creating a central aisle. This allows ample storage but requires sufficient width for comfortable movement.
  3. Island: Similar to a double-sided but includes a central island. Perfect for larger closets and often incorporates a dressing area or extra storage within the island.

Mirror Placement Possibilities

There are so many ways to incorporate mirrors into your closet, both for functionality and to create a luxurious atmosphere:

  • The Classic Full-Length: An absolute staple for a walk-in closet. Whether it’s wall-mounted for a sleek look or a freestanding option for flexibility, ensure you have one or more to create a generous viewing area. If your closet is ultra-modern, consider frameless mirrors with sharp geometric shapes. Traditional spaces might call for ornately framed mirrors.
  • Inside Cabinet Doors: If you’re going for a minimalist, streamlined aesthetic with full cabinetry throughout the closet, you can mount mirrors inside the cabinet doors.
  • Dedicated Vanity Mirrors: If your closet incorporates a makeup or styling station, surrounding that space with mirrors delivers optimal lighting and helps you create a dedicated pampering zone. Consider incorporating helpful features like anti-fog technology for steamy bathroom-adjacent closets.
  • Luxurious Touches:  Think beyond the basics! Backlit mirrors add a glamorous glow, while a mirrored backsplash behind closet shelving delivers an unexpectedly sophisticated touch. You could even integrate colored lighting options.
