A Mirror For More Than A Look

Do you feel like you see yourself coming and going?

Or perhaps you can't keep up with how fast you're coming and going.

Still, you want to look good while you're “doing it all”, and well placed mirrors can make that so much easier, all while increasing functionality (that's almost better than having the prince rescue you!)

So take a moment to “look in the mirror” and see some wonderful ways that we've incorporated them into our closet designs. With any luck, you'll be inspired to do the same.

Mirrors make spaces look larger, so if you can incorporate mirrors into a walk in closet space, even if it's small, it will feel bigger. If it's already big, it will feel magnificent. Think about adding mirrors on door fronts, on the actual door to a closet, or on some wall space.

We're not suggesting you give up precious storage space in order to accommodate a mirror. We're suggesting you consider some clever ways to add them to your space without compromising a thing.

If you decide to put a mirror on the wall, make sure you will still be able to have a good line of sight and be able to see yourself once the closet is filled with your clothing. Clothing often sticks out beyond the panel structure of a closet and is deeper, so double check your viewing clearances.

And check the installation height location if it's a mirror that's not full length. If the woman who “wears” this closet is petite, make sure she can see her full face (at minimum) in the mirror. This comes in to play if you're putting mirrors on upper door cabinets.

There's also a 3-way mirror to consider. If you've got enough space in your Walk-In closet, a well-versed designer can create the space so that there is storage behind three sections that are hinged to open so they function like a 3-way mirror. Take a look at some of these pictures that illustrate the point more clearly.

And one more option, in case you just can't get enough! The closet industry offers what is known as a “Pull-Out Mirror”. It can be installed onto one of the vertical panels in your closet system and can be “pulled out” when you need it and pushed back into its' place when not in use. Again, a designer who's worth their salt can guide the design process so it's installed in a location that's functional.

Give us a call. One of our designers would be delighted to help you with that.
