Mirrors are a staple in home décor and most of us have one mirror, if not a mirror in every room. They add style, depth, and brightness to any space and can help a room feel bigger. But have you considered using an irregular shaped mirror?
Unlike regular, symmetrical mirrors, irregular mirrors have unique shapes and sizes. They can be a bit unpredictable, but that’s what makes them perfect for adding interest and character to your home.
Irregular mirrors are eye-catching and draw attention to themselves. They can become a statement piece in any room, adding a unique focal point. They don’t blend in with the rest of the decor, instead, they stand out and demand attention.
Here are 12 of my favorite irregular mirrors and where to place them in your home.
Irregular mirrors are incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of creative ways. You could group several small mirrors together to create a unique gallery wall or use a larger irregular mirror as a statement piece above a fireplace or in an entryway.

These are just a few irregular and odd shaped mirrors that caught my eye, but you can find something for all styles online and on the high street. They can come in a variety of unique shapes, such as abstract, organic, or geometric, and can fit easily into any room.
Mirror frames are just as important as the mirror itself, so make sure you choose a material and finish that suits the style of the room.
Mirrors are always a good idea in our homes, they can help reflect light in different directions and make a room feel brighter and more spacious. They are also a brilliant home accessory to hang over a fireplace or bed to make a real focal point out of a room!
