Mirrors most used to decorate a bedroom can be divided into four general categories: the dressing mirror, the cheval mirror, the single mirror and the tri-fold mirror.

A popular way method of displaying a dressing mirror is to lean it against the wall. But, if there are small children in the home, it is advisable to secure the mirror. Some types of dressing mirrors are freestanding, mounted on a stationary stand. The angle of the mirror itself cannot be changed, but a free-standing dressing mirror will allow you to move it around the room.
Like the dressing mirror, the full-length cheval mirror, allows a person to check out their appearance from head to toe.

The same principle will also apply should you choose to hang a mirror over a nightstand or a headboard.
