Check out this collection of 11 terrific small mirrors for your home. We feature round, oval and rectangle shapes. They're all fairly small for when you don't have huge amount of wall space for a mirror.
Mirrors are super handy. We have a good number in our house including a narrow one in our front hall. It’s often a good idea to double check appearances before heading out. You never know.
We also have a small mirror in our bedroom (in addition to a large, full-length mirror). I like small mirrors at shoulder height for checking my face.
While I prefer larger mirrors in a bathroom, not all bathrooms can accommodate a large one. If that’s the case with you, look for the best small one. The side-by-side look is a good one as well.
Below is a large collection of a huge variety of smaller mirrors in a variety of shapes including oval, round, and rectangle.

3. Décor Wonderland Frameless Freddie Wall Mirror
Yes, indeed, this mirror, nicknamed ‘Freddie,’ is truly frameless! However, it makes up for the lack of a frame by having contoured glass edges that bevel inwards. The style is really unique and contemporary due to the shape as well. It’s a cross between an oval and a rectangle – an ovangle? Anyway, it is very stylish and modern. You won’t see many mirrors like this one.
Overall, Freddie measures 23.5” wide, ½” deep, and 32.5” high. He’s made of strong 3/16 glass, with metal mounting brackets on the back. It comes with mounting hardware, too. A small mirror like this one really increases the size of the décor around you, so if you live in a small space, this is a great accent piece.
Freddie would look ideal in your bathroom or bedroom and doesn’t stick out too much from the wall. He weighs 14 pounds, so a bit on the heavy side, but nothing too substantial that you couldn’t hang him yourself.
