Out of all the blob mirrors out there, these 9 have serious drip

I don't think you're ready for this jelly

Searching for a looking glass with a li'l less structure? A blob mirror is what you need. Rather than rely on straight lines, this season's must-have is a looser in structure. The sweatpants and baggy fits of the interior world, if you will.

But, just as I've handed in my skinny, high-waisted denim jeans for oversized alternatives, my interior style has also undergone a more organic overhaul with slouchy silhouettes galore to give my space a high-end feel.

Historically, mirror trends included a full-length rectangular style (LED lights optional) or perhaps a starburst design. But this amorphous aesthetic has been spotted all over my TikTok FYP page. And a mirror that resembles jello is just pure vibes, isn't it? Don't worry, these function in the same fashion as "normal" mirrors, so you won't get fairground-style distortions, promise.

"Asymmetric, irregularly shaped mirrors also known as ‘blob mirrors’ continue to gain popularity, as we see shoppers opting to break up the ordinary symmetry and sharpness of a space with wavy lines and organic shapes often found in nature," says Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy's trend expert.

"In fact, we’ve seen an 11% increase in organic shaped items on Etsy and in an increasingly technology-filled world, we’re taking inspiration from natural forms and replicating these softer, irregular lines in interiors more than ever. Blob mirrors are a simple way to elevate a space and bring visual interest with an element of playfulness to a space, whilst also easy to incorporate into existing decor."

Though most blob mirrors come with a raw edge, I've also included some with dreamy frames too.

Things to consider when buying a blob mirror

Not all blob mirrors are made equal, so here are some things to look out for when shopping for one:

Size: As demonstrated above, blob mirrors vary in dimensions, so you'll want one that suits the intended purpose. Only looking for a makeup mirror? You'll want a small one. But if you're looking to assess your outfit before walking out of the door, measure up for a floor-length fixture.

Glass material: Not all glass is made from sand, soda ash, and limestone. Newer "unbreakable" glass is made with acrylics, polycarbonate, and other plastics. And you know what that means? No more seven years of bad luck!

Shape: Some blobs are well... a li'l blobbier than others. You know what I mean? And while some people prefer a conservative teardrop shape, others want to go all out with a statement squiggle.

Frame: No frame, wood mount, acrylic outline. It's completely up to you. The frame might protect the mirror from chipping, but these can sometimes be pricier, depending on where you shop


Is it safe to glue a mirror to a wall?

Short answer: Yes (if you do it properly). But if you don't want to risk fines from your college RA or landlord, there are so many other ways to install a mirror on your wall. You could use picture-hanging hooks or Command strips which you can buy on Amazon. Just be sure to check the weight of your mirror to confirm these can support the design you've purchased.

How we chose these blob mirrors

NGL, it'd be a bit scary to call in nine mirrors and dot them around my apartment (plus my husband wouldn't be too impressed), so we've relied on online ratings and reviews from customers who have bought these blob mirrors.

Now that you've got your eyes on a shiny new mirror, remember to give it some TLC. Nope, I'm not talking about that '90s girl band (RIP Lisa "left eye" Lopes), I'm referring to keeping it clean. Despite what the all-female formation said... we do want scrubs when maintaining streak-free glass. Thankfully, our mirror-cleaning guide is the ultimate how-to for spotless results.
