This edition’s question:


“Recently, I visited a friend’s place and saw a beautiful mirror that she’d placed in her living room. I’d love to hang one in mine, but I don’t know how to go about it. What kind of mirror should I buy and where should I place it?”

– Priyanka Arora, Delhi


We don’t always count living room mirrors as a decor option for the living room. Instead, we often visualise mirrors in bedrooms and bathrooms, where they serve the primary function of a looking glass. But the right decorative mirrors for living spaces can act as a lovely addition, adding character and finesse to the most visible space in your home. Here are our tips on choosing mirror wall decor for living room interiors and where you can place them:

#1: Place Living Room Mirrors Opposite a Window

Consoles are not common in Indian homes unless you own a heritage home or a mansion. If you do have a console, hang circular or rectangular decorative mirrors for living room spaces above it, instead of going with the more traditional idea of hanging an oil painting. Just make sure to choose mirrors and their frames according to your decorating theme.

#3: Apply Your Living Room Mirror Ideas to the Foyer
