Today's question from the good old real estate mail bag:
I hear your dilemma! But there are many ways around it.
If you watch any of the home improvement shows on television, you see there is a trend for removing large bathroom mirrors and replacing them with smaller, stylish framed mirrors. They may look pretty, but they sure aren't a whole lot of help when you want to see a full body view! Perhaps you could buck the style trend and put a larger, over the vanity mirror in the bathroom.
I agree, this is not a full view. Just like the mirror over your dresser, it's difficult seeing a full body view.
So let's look at the closet doors. If you have a tradition closet door, the easiest solution is to buy a full length mirror and install it on the inside of the closet door. Problem solved - you get a nice full view every time you open the door!
But many closet doors are either sliders or bi-fold. No worries - they make mirrored doors that give you both the full-length mirror you are looking for, and can make the room appear larger as well!
Cheval mirrors are free-standing full length mirrors that might also be your solution. They come in many different style to suit any décor. Just make sure you have enough room in your bedroom for an extra piece of furniture!
Additionally, many people in the design world now like the idea of a full length mirror that leans against the wall. Again, you must have enough room in your bedroom to pull this look off! And while they look like they are just leaning there - please make sure they are securely fastened so you don't have any accidents!
I hope this gives you some ideas on how you can see yourself - literally - in your new home.
And I think you look just fine in those pants!
