Buyer's Guide For An Over-The-Door Mirror

For a mirror to be considered a full-length mirror it must be 48 inches in height. Fortunately, most over-the-doors are 48 inches long. Over-the-door mirrors can vary 38 -- 54 inches in length and 14 -- 18 inches in width.

Hanging a full-length mirror in a dark-painted room is recommended. Place the mirror somewhere that it can reflect natural light from a window to help open that room up.

Slightly oversized round mirrors are chic in any room size and if it isn't too colorful, it fits well in the modern minimalist home décor style.

Houses with vaulted or high ceilings do extremely well with the etched arch-designed mirrors. The arch design lifts the room even more!

Any wooden or warm framed mirror shouldn't match the door color. For example, don't add a dark oak frame to a dark oak door or the mirror will fade into the background.

If you choose a cabinet or jewelry armoire, make sure the hooks are steel or good quality (not so much plastic). Plastic can be flimsy and break easily.
