Can you imagine life without mirrors? Getting ready to go out would be a nightmare. How could you check your hair? Applying makeup would be virtually impossible. Shaving might be interesting, too. In fact, life would be very difficult!
But mirrors are useful in other ways in the home; they reflect light around the room to give the illusion of space. Ambient and natural light are enhanced, creating airiness and atmosphere within a room.
Our HomesDirect365 online shop has an excellent collection of mirrors of all types, including floor standing mirrors, full length mirrors, free standing mirrors, garden mirrors, table mirrors and our most popular wall mirrors. It's a great place to begin your search for the perfect mirror!

French design has influenced countless people worldwide for generations, and French mirrors are included in this.
One perfect example is our full length Antique French Style Silver Leaner Mirror. This exquisite item simply oozes French panache and character. The stunning silver frame has detailed carvings in the corners and the centre of each side. The edge has beading that joins the carvings perfectly and completes the opulent effect.

These stunning mirrors can be mounted on the wall independently or hung over shelves or the mantlepiece. Wherever you choose to put yours, it will look amazing and create a focal point.
If you want French flair for your dressing table, check out our Argente range. The Argente antique French-style table mirror is edged with mirror panels that converge in an M-shaped top, with intricately carved floral details in the centre. It will definitely add a touch of refinement to your boudoir!
The name cheval comes from the French word for horse. These cheval mirrors are a larger version of the small vanity mirror, and as large plates of glass were used and the frame needed extra support. So, they were set on four sturdy feet, like a horse.
The Baroque, Chloe, La Rochelle and Raphael ranges are perfect examples of what a cheval mirror should be. They are elegant and beautiful, with robust but graceful frames. The mirror can be tilted on the frame to adjust the view, and each item is delicately decorated, making it ideal for bedroom mirrors.
