These days, not only does your whole ensemble need to look good, but so does the mirror you're taking your photo in. OOTD photos, GRWM videos, you name it: your mirror is on display. This is why it's time to find a replacement for the plastic thing you've moved from your dorm room to your current apartment. We've all been there — and once you invest in a stylish new mirror, you'll wonder why you've been using your lackluster one for so long.
A good full-length mirror is worth investing in because it's not a piece of decor that you're likely to change often. You might move it from one room to another, but most mirrors are bought and used for years. They also have the ability to become a focal point of a room, and as you know: the larger the mirror, the bigger it will make your space feel as it bounces light around a space.
So, here are all of our favorite stylish full-length mirrors. We've listed plenty of budget-friendly picks, all with unique features that match your personal style. Renters, don't sweat — most of these mirrors give you the option to wall mount or lean and use as a standing mirror.
How long should a full length mirror be?
We asked ourselves this while writing this guide, and TBH: the results surprised us. Wayfair notes that "a full-length mirror should be at least one-half as tall as your height" in its guide to mirror sizes. This means that in order to see your full reflection from head to toe in a full-length mirror, you'll need to take a few steps back from wherever it's placed.
9 full-length mirrors to make your space look larger
Why you can trust Real Homes
A statement maker
Size: W22.25" x H53.25"
Framed by 78 (!) white wooden balls, this mirror just screams fun. The one-of-a-kind design will breathe some excitement into your #OOTD pics — we honestly wouldn't be surprised if you get multiple DMs asking for a link. But since this full-length mirror is from PB Teen, you know it's as high-quality as it is eye-catching. The silver mirror and polyurethane frame comes with mounting hardware to put up on a wall and also works with the PB's floor securing kits if you want to lean it instead.
Simple, but still unique
Size: W20” x H58”
With its oblong shape, this mirror from Target's Threshold line is simple without being boring. The oval silhouette and gold color are both timeless features, so if you're looking for a full-length mirror that fits with any decor style, then this is the one. The bottom is supported by a frame that helps it perch on the floor if you want to lean it and makes it look a little more interesting when hung up.
The chic (and cheap) space-saver
Size: W15" x H63"
Don't be fooled by this slim-but-mighty mirror. The thin size may not feel like enough at first, but even the narrowest of mirrors can make a big difference in opening up a room and reflecting light. The smart frameless design gives you more space to do your outfit checks, while the rounded corners make it feel more elegant than say, your typical slim over-the-door mirrors. It can be wall mounted, but we love seeing the wooden support peek out from the back when it's standing.
The IKEA one
Size: W29.5" x H66"
We love a good investment piece and Anthro's Primrose mirror is just that. But we're also on a budget. Leave it to IKEA to fulfill our fanciful mirror dreams with this equally pretty, but much more affordable dupe. The gold-colored aluminum Råmebo frame is lighter than the iron Primrose, making it less scary to hang (am I the only one terrified that my handiwork may one day fall off?). It comes with detachable ornaments so you can go between vintage and minimalist whenever you want.
A modern, earthy pick
Size: W24" x H55"
Working on turning your humble abode into a calming retreat with lots of natural elements? Then may we suggest this absolutely gorgeous cane mirror? Crafted in the Philippines, the stunner will add just the right touch of boho to your apartment, but in a totally elegant way thanks to its rounded, subtly textured frame. Sure, it's on the more expensive side, but knowing the zen vibe it'll bring into your apartment? Priceless.
Practical and pretty
Size: W28" x H70"
Crafted from wood with antique brass caps on the ends, this leaning full-length mirror is for those who want both form and function. The ladder half is a great place to hang your most commonly used accessories, making it even easier to get out the door on your in-office days. It still has a relatively small footprint though, but the stylish design still stands out.
The trendy pick
Size: W27" x H68"
If you spend any time on Tiktok at all, then you know that the rippled mirror trend isn't going anywhere. If you're all about staying up to date with what's trending, you'll adore the asymmetrical organic shape of this high-def mirror. The shiny polystyrene frame gives an eye-catching glow, especially in the modern white color.
A natural beauty
Size: W24" x H58"
An arched full-length mirror is guaranteed to never go out of style, but this one from World Market has major charm. It's hand-crafted from Vietnamese rattan, and the beautiful golden brown color will complement your collection of indoor plants and add a boho touch to any room it's in.
Sleek and high-tech
Size: W20" x H63"
Is it vain to want to see yourself in the best light possible? Not at all. This modern mirror with lights combines the best of a vanity mirror (the glowing lights, of course) with a full-length size so you can actually check your look from head to toe at any hour. The LED light strip turns on with a touch of a button and has three color modes to provide the perfect glow. The aluminum frame is rustproof and the glass is explosion-proof for your peace of mind.
How to choose the right full-length mirror for you
There are many things to consider when buying a full-length mirror. First up, how tall should it be? The general rule of thumb is that a full-length mirror should be at least half your height. Then, depending on where you plan to put it, the thickness of the mirror may also be a consideration. A slimmer profile is best if you have a small space or you may want to opt for a standing mirror if you're a renter.
Finally, there are your budget and style preferences to consider. "There are two types of full-length mirrors: low profile mirrors that are simply utilitarian and ones that are decorative. I treat decorative full-length mirrors like a piece of furniture," says explains Amy Forshew of Proximity Interior Design. "The color and style need to coordinate and complement the other furniture in the room."
Where to place a full-length mirror?
While the most obvious reason for getting a full-length mirror is to see yourself from head to toe, it can also be used to help open up a room. Amy Forshew of Proximity Interior Design claims that "strategically placed, they can bring a lot of light into a space and make a small room feel much bigger." So small space dwellers, get in on this.
