Grouping Mirrors On A Wall

Dear Style Studio,

I want to do a wall of mirrors, but I can’t decide how many or what sizes. I do know I love tons of mirrors at Ballard and I would like to stick with a round theme.

The wall is above the staircase that leads to the basement. The dimensions of the wall are 63 inches high (from the light switch to the ceiling) and 97 inches wide (the entire wall).

These are some of the mirrors I like: Bellesol Mirror, Suzanne Kasler Sunburst Mirror #4, the entire Arrondi Mirror collection, Talara Mirror collection.

Hope you can help!

Wall Above Staircase

Nicole,

We think your idea of a mirror collection in this space is fantastic! What better way to reflect light into a stairway, than through beautiful mirrors.

The two illustrations below give you two different layouts.

Both provide an approximate layout for scale and placement and will help in deciding which mirrors to hang. Remember you can always switch out the examples for other mirrors that you like better.

Suzanne Kasler has several round mirrors that would look great in this group.

Group A is a random collection of the following mirrors:

1. Arrondi Mirrors – Extra Large, Large and Small

2. Suzanne Kasler Sunburst Mirror #1

3. Talara Mirrors – Large, Medium and Small

Mirror Group B is a group of mirrors set up in a grid hanging style. We have used the Suzanne Kasler Sunburst Mirror #1.

Hope this helps and Happy Decorating!

    Dear Style Studio,

    I just love what you did to help Nicole out. I have a similar issue. I bought four sets of mirrors. Three mirrors per set. (1) 14×26 inch and( 2) 14×14 inch. I want it to be in a square shape, since that is my favorite shape, on the wall. I am having a hard time with a nice layout. Can you please help?

      Hi Charisse,
      It’s hard to say without being in your space, but we would suggest creating a square or rectangular shape in painters tape on the floor. Then arrange your mirrors on the floor within the parameters of the tape. For the mirrors that are closet to the taped borders, make sure those edges are all aligned. Then you can allow the mirrors on the inside of the arrangement to be more free flowing. Hopefully that makes sense!
      Best of Luck,
