Mirrors are almost never a bad idea. I mean, who doesn’t love checking themselves out as they’re heading out the door for the day, coming home or just randomly as you go about your business? Mirrors provide depth to a space and can even make a room seem bigger without adding anything more than a picture-frame-sized accessory.
It’s time to take mirrors to the next level and help them achieve a purpose beyond just reflecting back to us what we already know, that we’re fairest of them all. Mirror shelves are both a reflective surface for straightening out that cow lick and making sure you’ve got nothing in your teeth, and a handy surface for storing your keys, wallet or comb. Add one to your front hallway instead of an entryway table or replace your bathroom mirror with something that can hold your toothbrush. Here are the best mirror shelves for your home that’ll add just the right amount of style and function.
1. Elizabeth Vertical Wood Accent Mirror Shelf
BEST WOODEN DESIGN
This wooden mirror shelf will look great in a front entryway or hallway in your home. It takes up space without dominating the look and feel of the surrounding area. The wooden frame has a warm brown finish that gives it a natural, organic feeling as well as recessed beveled glass that gives it a sleeker, more streamlined feel. This rectangular mirror has the depth and space for a few trinkets that can add to the design and save you space. It has D-ring hangers on the back for an easy installation, and the chunky farmhouse feel will match a variety of decor seamlessly.
2. Amata Metal Wall Mounted Mirror
BEST FOR YOUR BATHROOM
Perhaps one of the most popular spots in the house for a mirror shelf is the bathroom. It’s the one room where many of the tasks you complete there require a mirror. This one from Gracie Oaks is simply and elegantly designed, and includes a bar over the shelf to keep your accessories in check. The design combines modern and industrial elements together to create a tubular frame and bronze finish that can blend in with a bunch of different aesthetics easily. It has industrial-strength hangers on the back that will attach securely, and it’s made of thick materials that are double-coated for protection.
3. Decorated Brass Circle Shelf Mirror
BEST CIRCULAR DESIGN
This incredibly stylish circular mirror shelf is perfect for a small space in need of some new life. It’s a perfect finishing touch to your home’s decor with its simple yet distinctive design. Store those easy-to-forget small essentials on there so you never leave home without them and steal one final glance at yourself before you head out the door. It’s an iron frame with an antique brass finish and includes mirrored glass on the inside. The hanging hardware you need to install it is also all included to make the installation process easy.
4. Cissel Mirrored Shelf
This intricate 3-part shelf is a bit of a splurge but it’s completely worth it for the quality of construction and design compliment you’ll receive. Rosdorf Park brings a fashionable twist to any home with this shelf that works perfectly on a narrow piece of wall, in a bathroom, closet or other corner in need of functional flair. This shelf is made of sturdy manufactured wood and glass and comes fully assembled, ready to be installed. It features three different shelves that you can use for small trinkets or accessories and is about 42″ total end to end.
5. Ashtyn Accent Mirror With Shelves
BEST MODERN DESIGN
Another industrial, modern take on the mirror shelf, this Ashtyn accent mirror from AllModern would make a great addition to a guest bathroom, office or done-up garage. This mirror is an instant design upgrade for a space with its rounded corners and rimmed tray with plenty of storage. It has a distressed metal finish and a small railing on the shelf to wrangle your precious objects and keep them from slipping to their doom. It’s made of metal and glass and can be easily wiped clean with a dry cloth.
6. Kate and Laurel Modern Metal Wall Mirror Shelf
You don’t need to drop too pretty a penny for a stylish mirror shelf, as is evidenced by this modern mirror shelf from Kate and Laurel. It has a mid-century modern and contemporary transitional design to it and is dynamic as well as understated on your wall. At 11″ x 24″ it’s the perfect size for your wall and the attached shelf sits at the full width for plenty of storage. It as two keyhole hangers built into the back for easy hanging and the elongated oval is a unique geometric shape that will bring something different and clean to your space.
7. Kate and Laurel Metal McCauley Mirror Shelf
BEST RUSTIC DESIGN
If you’re going for more a rustic, candles, barnyard-type feel this mirror shelf will work well. It’s got a raw iron look to it and two different shapes for a sophisticated and modern rustic look. It’s 22.5″ wide and about 3″ deep with plenty of room for small storage on the white-washed, naturally-finished wooden shelf on the bottom. The inside metal frame has a slim profile and surrounds the round mirror perfectly creating an interesting display that’s chic and functional at the same time. At less than $120 it’s also an affordable accent piece made of high-quality materials. It has two keyhole hangers built into the back so it’s easy to hang, and the all-black aesthetic is simple and makes a statement at the same time.
8. Howard Elliott Collection Lula Square Mirror Shelf With Candle Holder
If you’re looking for something elegant that’ll blend in with more traditional, old-school decor this all-glass mirror shelf is perfect. It’ll serve as a stunning focal point in the room you put it in with a glass candle holder built right in that can accommodate up to a 3-inch pillar candle. The beveled edge gives it that design you’re used to seeing on crystal candle sticks and it’s easy to hang with affixed D-rings on the back. It measures 12″ long, 12″ wide and about 6 1/2″ deep — with more shelf space than many other mirror selves on this list.
9. Kate and Laurel Modern Glam Mirror Shelf
BEST STATEMENT PIECE
The gold on this mirror shelf will definitely catch your eye no matter where you put it in your house. It’s a longer mirror, measuring in at about 40 inches wide and 5 inches deep, so you’ve got plenty of space to store bathroom accessories, keys, your wallet or even spices in your pantry. The construction is entirely metal with a resilient finish that locks in the shiny gold color and protects it from wear and tear. It has metal keyhole hangers attached to the back for a simple and secure installation process, and it comes in both gold and black if you like the design but prefer a more subtle look.
10. Putnam Beveled Accent Mirror
MOST INTERESTING PATTERN
I love the pattern that surrounds this mirror shelf from AllModern. It has a casual design with just enough trend and flair to catch someone’s eye in your hallway, entryway or kitchen. The stripes are hand-painted on the frame, which give it an “imperfect” nature that we love for a home that’s meant to be lived in. The stripes are monotone so it’s not too loud in any given space, but will definitely liven up any space you put it in. It comes fully assembled, ready to hang, and is large enough to make a focal point on a wall at 36″ x 36″.
11. Therivault Vanity Mirror
TOWEL BAR INCLUDED
This vanity mirror has a towel bar attached, making it a great addition to a bathroom, pool house or outdoor bathroom for a pool, hot tub or ocean. It has a super industrial design with a rustic finish and metallic texture. It has two different shelves built into it in addition to the towel rack where you can put beauty products, sunscreen or shampoo. It comes ready to hang and measures 23.75 inches high and 17 inches wide, with a maximum depth of 5″.
12. Evendale Industrial Accent Mirror
SECURE SHELF SPACE
This mirror shelf has wiring detail around the shelf so items stay secure and organized, and it enhances the look of the shelf as well. It’s simplistic, decorative and very functional. It’s made of metal with a distressed finish for an added design appeal, and it’s wide enough to hold books, plants and other sizable knick knacks. It comes with two keyholes on the back for hanging, but does not come with mounting hardware so make sure you’ve got the equipment you need before purchasing.
13. Centreville Shelves Accent Mirror
LARGE SHELF SURFACE
We love how this one reminds us of a full-on vanity with multiple sides and a large shelf for storage. The windowpane design will feel decadent in your space, and the bronze finish elevates the traditional look for an added design element. The three mirrors triple the chances of reflecting and adding light to your home, and the arch shape is sophisticated and elegant at the same time. This mirror has plenty of depth, so many sure to hang it where the space underneath is already used.
