Choosing the best bespoke mirror takes research and some planning. It involves carefully considering the space in which you want to install your custom mirror, as well as the mirror aesthetic that will look best in the room for which you're buying a mirror. If you don't already know what you are looking for, shopping around and conducting research is a great way to start the process, as is talking to a bespoke mirror designer.

First, look at the space in which you're planning to install a new mirror. Consider the overall purpose of the room and its present or planned decor. Ask yourself what type of bespoke mirror will truly look best there. If your goal is simply a large wall mirror, you might be less concerned with mirror aesthetics, which primarily revolve around the shape and frame of a mirror.

A custom mirror can be placed in a living room, a bedroom, a bathroom, an office conference room, or a recreation room. It can be installed in a workshop, a home gym, or the cabin of a boat. There is an almost limitless number of types of spaces for which a bespoke mirror might be purchased, so assess your own space according to its size, function, and aesthetics. Look for designs that complement the room, and consider issues related to lighting and views that might be visible within the surface of your new mirror.

Bespoke mirrors can be part of a wall, hung on a wall, or free standing. Large wall mirrors are less likely to have frames. Shapes range from square to round to anything in between. When considering what type of frame to get, assess materials and styles.

Choose a bespoke mirror that matches the aesthetic of your home or business. You might examine the difference between antique and modern frames, between wood and metal frames, and between painted and natural frames. An aesthetic might be country and rustic or industrial and urban. It might be minimal or ornate.

Specialized mirrors can also be purchased for unique purposes. A business might be in the market for a two-way mirror for security and surveillance. Mirrors can also have technology built into them, such as hidden video cameras and invisible flat screen televisions that only appear within the mirror surface when you turn them on. Bespoke mirrors can also be part of custom or preexisting pieces of furniture. When buying a bespoke mirror for a bathroom, consider adding storage space by making your mirror double as a medicine cabinet.
