Did something catastrophic happen to your dresser mirror? If just the reflective mirror itself is broken, you can usually have a new one put into the frame. But if the frame is damaged, you are better off buying a new dresser mirror than trying to repair the old one.
But how do you make sure that you have a mirror that works with your specific dresser? While you may not be able to find the exact mirror for the dresser you have, you should be able to find one similar enough that it will work with your bedroom furniture.
Here are some tips on how to find mirror for bedroom dresser that works with your model.
Start by searching for the same furniture collection you have
Even if you bought your bedroom furniture set a few years ago, you might still be able to find new pieces for sale online. Start by searching online furniture stores for the bedroom collection you have. If you can’t find anything from that collection in the clearance departments of the different online furniture retailers, branch out and look at other collections offered by the same brand. This will give you the easiest similarities.
Measure your dresser and check mirror dimensions carefully
If your old mirror is too damaged to measure accurately, measure your dresser and look for mirrors of a slightly smaller width so that you can be certain they will fit with the mounting hardware. As you browse dresser mirrors, double-check dimensions carefully.
Look for detailed product descriptions
Detailed product descriptions should give you information on how the mirror mounts to the dresser, and what hardware is included with the mirror to mount it to your existing dresser. You should also check the material, construction, and finish of the mirror to make sure it matches closely enough with your dresser as to not look out of place.
There are a lot of online furniture stores that have huge inventories, and while this is good for giving you a variety to choose from, it also means that there isn’t time to give complete descriptions of every piece of furniture in their diverse catalogs. If you find the dresser mirror you want but need more information than the site provides, you should be able to find more information about the brand.
Be careful about color
When you stick to the same brand, you have a much better chance of matching the color or finish of your dresser. Most brands have some signature colors and/or patterns that allow you to easily mix and match between their different collections. If you can’t find the right mirror within the same brand, the right décor on the surface of the dresser could tie in similar shades.
You can also use an area rug centered between the dresser and the bed that ties in all of the colors and shades in the room. Area rugs are a great way to tie rooms together when you have to go with a more varied look.
