As always, when we move down a tier to a lower price point, quality can suffer over the long term. So be sure to read the most current reviews and always look for real life photos of the decor pieces before you buy. I want your expectations to be realistic. But I will also do my best to share pieces with overall positive reviews.
Everyone’s budget is different and where you want to spend and save will vary. Grab a cup of coffee and check out this week’s splurge versus steal on the wooden ball mirror.
DESIGN DETAILS: WOODEN BALL MIRROR
I’ve sourced three wooden ball mirrors for you at a good, better, and best price and quality point. Check those measurements of your space and the dimensions of the mirrors before you buy.
We love the wooden ball mirror because it has a natural, organic feel to it. First off, a round mirror is a great piece to add to a space with a lot of rectangles going on- like an entryway, living room or over a powder bathroom vanity.
Next, I love that the wood frame gives off warmth to the space. So when you need a little bit of warmth and organic shape to a space, get one of these wooden ball mirrors.
FAQ’s WOOD BALL MIRRORS
The mirror over a bathroom vanity should be 4″ to 6″ less wide than the bathroom vanity.
So if your vanity is 36″, the mirror should be 30″ to 32″ inches wide.
A mirror should be hung at eye level which means the center should be 60″ to 65″ from the ground.
You should hang the bathroom vanity mirror 5″ to 10″ above the bathroom sink countertop.
If you are hanging a mirror over a piece of furniture, aim for 2/3 to three fourths the width of the piece of furniture. If your console table is 50″ the mirror should be approximately 33″ to 37″.
