If you're buying a new wardrobe or having a bespoke wardrobe installed in your home, you may want to consider mirrored doors. Wondering if you would like mirrored wardrobe doors? Here are some signs they may be right for you.

1. You Don't Have Space for a Mirror

Like to check your look before leaving for school or work? Don't have a spot for a free standing full-length mirror? Then, a mirrored wardrobe door may be the perfect solution. Keep in mind that you want to use the mirror in a functional way, and stay away from panes.

2. There Are Limited Windows in Your Room

If you don't have a lot of windows in your bedroom, you may also want to invest in a wardrobe with mirrored doors. The mirrors bounce light around the room, and that helps to increase the sense that your room has lots of natural lot coming into it.

Also, if you want to mimic the look of windows on an aesthetic level, you may want to look for a wardrobe where the mirrors are set up with panes or have pieces of wood in between panels of glass to make the look of a window.

3. The Room Is Small

Along those same lines, a mirrored wardrobe can also make a small room look larger. You can simulate this effect with crystal clear traditional mirrors, or you can opt for a slightly different look with mirrored glass that is coloured. If you are opting for mirrors to make your room look larger, go for large mirrors. You want to sweep the gaze up and down or from side to side without interruption. You also want the mirrors to reflect as much of the rest of the room as possible.

4. You Like the Look of Mirrored Wardrobe Doors

You don't necessarily need to choose a mirrored wardrobe for functional reasons. You can choose this style of wardrobe simply because you like how it looks. Remember, as indicated above, there are lots of different stylistic choices to make.

You can have full mirrored doors, small panes that look like they are framed by an antique window frame, metal or wood accents around the mirrors, or thousands of other designs.

5. You Are Going for a Minimalist Effect

If you opt for wardrobe doors that just feature mirrors with no frames, that helps to create a minimalist look. This works particularly well for built in wardrobes with sliding pocket doors.
