Mirror shape plays a bigger role in the overall vibe of a room than one may think. Something that is taller and vertical will make a room seem taller. A floor mirror that is wider will help a room seem wider. A rounded or curved mirror will bring a softness to the room, and a square or rectangular shape will make the room seem more defined.

Others are much bigger and are meant for an entryway to bring in more light and create additional space.

You can either opt to match your floor mirror to the rest of the decor in your room, or make a statement with your floor mirror purchase. The size and shape of the mirror play a role in the style, and so does the frame of the mirror. The simpler the frame, the more modern the style. And the more ornate the frame, the more traditional the style.
