If you thought arches only belonged in the 70s, think again. The classic interior arch is back, and nowhere is this more noticeable than in the stunning array of arched mirrors popping up in bathrooms, bedrooms and living spaces around Australia.
Mirrors have always been fabulous for creating the illusion of space in smaller spaces, but in an arched shape, they’re extra special. Arches bring elegance and softness to angular rooms and they complement curved furniture beautifully, like luxe upholstered swivel chairs.
Whether you’re after a floor mirror to position against a bedroom wall or a pair of showstoppers for a modern bathroom, there’s an arched beauty out there ready to transform your room. And we’ve put the best of them in one handy spot for you.
What are the benefits of an arch mirror?
- They elevate a space. Arches help to create the illusion of higher ceilings, taller walls and a generally more spacious room. This makes them a fabulous choice for small areas like walk-in robes and hallways.
- A mirror is cheaper than reshaping walls. Desperate for arches but don’t want to renovate? An arched mirror is the answer, and the good news is that there are styles available to suit any budget.
- They soften a room. Arches are welcoming and pretty, and they’re a simple way to soften a sterile or angular space. And if you want to take the curve theme further and you have the space, consider a round bathtub for extra wow.
- Great wall features. More than a useful fixture, a curved mirror makes a statement and breathes new life into bare, tired walls.
- Arches work well in pairs. By doubling up arched mirrors, you bring a gorgeous rhythm to the room and they look especially wow above a black bathroom vanity or another statement piece of furniture.

Yes, arched mirrors are trending in a big way in Australia right now and they are not showing any sign of disappearing. Aside from their elegant aesthetic, arches also soften spaces and help create a more lived-in and welcoming environment. So it’s easy to see why everyone loves them!
Whether you hang or lean your mirror depends on its size, weight and the overall aesthetic you’re aiming for. A wall-mounted mirror gives a timeless and clean finish, whereas leaning a mirror against a wall in a bedroom or walk-in robe gives a room a casual tone. Always be sure to check that your mirror is suitable for wall-mounting before trying to hang it.
Arch-shaped mirrors are popular choices for bedrooms, walk-in robes, hallways and bathrooms – but exactly where you position it depends on what else is in the room. Remember that you want the mirror to be in proportion to the wall it’s on and it should reflect things you want to see, like plants or a window rather than a pile of dirty laundry!
