The biggest garden trend this year? Creating a living room-style space in your back yard. And that’s where mirrors for gardens fit in. From outdoor rugs to patio heaters, hammocks and even lamp-style LED garden lighting, we’re shopping for garden decorations and accessories like never before. And a garden mirror is an absolute must.
Outdoor mirrors can transform a cold, unwelcoming garden into something altogether cosier; use a garden mirror like you would in your home or think of them like a window or doorway – they can reflect light and add depth to your outdoor space, whatever its size.
Where should a mirror be placed in the garden?
Outdoor mirrors are usually fixed to a garden wall, but larger garden mirrors can be jauntily leaned against a wall or side of a shed. From garden mirrors with shutters to round mirrors, gothic-style and mid-century designs, shop the best garden mirrors.
