Mirrors will always make a space appear larger—this is a stylist's best-kept secret. In a bedroom or a closet, they will also make getting ready in the morning a cinch—just test out your favorite outfits before an important meeting, or fix an awkward boot tuck before heading out the door. There are a million reasons why you need a full-length mirror in the space you get ready in the morning. But while most of us reach for large leaning mirrors or even mirrors that hang on a wall, let us make the case for another option: the standing mirror.
Unlike leaning mirrors, which take up space without really providing extra functionality, standing mirrors routinely play double duty in a bedroom: serving as extra storage, acting as a sculptural accent, or even filling out an awkward empty corner and making a space appear much bigger than it is. In fact, many retailers are now selling standing mirrors with hidden storage in the back, making it extra easy to prepare and plan the next day's outfit or hide a few often used accessories. If you can spare the extra few inches, take a look at these clever and showstopping standing mirrors.
