Don‘t hang a large mirror over a sofa simply because it’s an empty space and you happen to have one. Make sure it works with everything else in the room. That said, you can certainly hang a series of small mirrors together over a sofa to create a gallery feel. Like with any photo wall, treat them as one unit when deciding on placement and carefully consider size, shape, and the finish of the frames.
When hanging anything above a sofa, keep in mind that the number one mistake people make is to hang something that´s too small. The piece, whatever it may be, should generally be about two-thirds the width of the sofa (unless you´re opting for something purposely over-scale). If you‘re hanging a group of pieces the same rule generally applies. Other than that the rules are pretty loose, so be creative and choose something that speaks to you and makes you smile.
Mirrors are important decorative tools.They reflect light, they open up spaces, and they just make rooms look better in general. Above a sofa can be a great place to hang a large mirror, but keep in mind that whenever possible mirrors should be hung across from windows or something else that‘s visually appealing.
