Nightstands are the attractive part of the furniture that you can place on the sides of your bed. The mirror over them increases the beauty of the interior.
How High to Hang Mirror Over Nightstands? You can hang the mirror by keeping it 4 to 5 inches above the nightstands for better visibility. You cannot hang it at a higher level than this because it disturbs the eyesight level and does not show the room. You can adjust the height of the mirror according to the size of the headboard of your bed. You cannot add it close to the nightstand as it shows the image of the accessories present on it. You have to place it at the center of the side table to make your room look good.
The appropriate height of the mirror is necessary as it helps decorate the room by the reflection of light.
You can hang them at a suitable place for decoration purposes and see yourself in it.
Many people commonly fix them some inches above the side table if their rooms are small.
What height is suitable to hang a mirror over nightstands?
The main factor that is crucial in the hanging of the mirror is the size of your room. The height of the walls determines what height is suitable for the bed and the nightstands.
You can utilize the wall space above the bed or the side for decoration purposes because it is a different place that does not provide space for furniture.
You can add the mirror at the back of the nightstand. It makes your room unique and gives a stylish look to your room.
The size of the mirror should not be more than the size of the side table. You should leave 4 to 5 inches of space from both sides of the mirror from the total size of the nightstand.
If the size of your bed is more than 39 inches from the floor, then you can leave the space of almost 3-4 inches between them.
You can leave the space of 5 to 7 inches if the size of the stand ranges from 35 to 38 inches. But if its size is less than this range, then you should add the space of almost 9 to 13 inches.
However, the adjustment at the accurate level is necessary. If you add it slightly down, you cannot see yourself in it because it will show the image of things present on the side table.
Sometimes, people adjust their furniture so that bed and side tables cover the whole wall.
For this purpose, you can add the mirror that covers the wall from the floor to 5 to 6 inches below the ceiling.
How to hang a mirror over the nightstand?
There are different styles to hang a mirror over the nightstand. It’s up to you that either you choose a circular, rectangular, oval, or pentagon-shaped mirror for your room.

You have to adjust the mirror at a distance from the bed so that it does not cause damage to anyone sitting on the bed.
All you need is a stud, a screw, and a drill machine that helps hang a mirror. It is better to use 3 to 4 inches screw and fix it over the stud.
There are mounting brackets that help in the accurate fixation of the material. You can fix your mirror on these brackets for proper adjustment.
Some of my friends told me they had hung two mirrors over the nightstand. It gives a unique touch to the modern-style rooms.

If there is already a mirror present in the room, there is no need to add another one. However, it can decrease the glamour of your interior.
You cannot use it for any purpose if you attach it above the eyesight level. This is because it does not show the room entirely and is of no use.

If you do not adjust it accurately, you can face hazardous effects. It can fall at any time and can cause damage to other things.
Sometimes, you may hang them correctly, but even a slight tilt can make them fall. So you have to be careful that you should secure the mirror with solid support.
