The Hovet Ikea Mirror

Slide 1 of 6: BUY NOW$129If your social media looks anything like mine, you've seen the HOVET Ikea mirror all over your timeline for the past year. I didn't pay much attention to it at first, riding it off as yet another influencer product I truly didn't need. After all, cheap, over-the-door hanging mirrors that slightly warped my reflection usually got the job done anyway, so why would I need this one?  But now that I'm staying home more, I've decided to invest in my space by filling it with more thoughtful and useful pieces. They certainly don't need to be expensive - in fact most are quite the opposite. Instead, I'm looking for quality, long-lasting pieces that improve my daily routines.  I recently moved and found myself in need of a new full-length mirror, so I no longer had to rely on self-timer photos to check my outfits. I scoured the internet for one that met these standards, only to find myself returning to that familiar mirror I'd seen far too many times. After reading dozens of glowing reviews, I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did.  I measured time and time again before its arrival, but nothing could have prepared me for how big this mirror actually is. At only 5'2", I can barely reach the top of it when standing on the floor. I decided to lean it against my wall, but mounting fixtures are included if I later decide to hang the mirror vertically or horizontally. The only downside I've noticed so far is the mirror's weight. Given that the mirror is 42 pounds and almost 6.5 feet tall, I'm thankful I don't have to move it too often.  The mirror framing is made of aluminum, which gives it a modern look, but it can be easily upgraded with spray paint or string lights. A quick search of the mirror on Instagram or TikTok will take you days to scroll through and will leave you with endless inspiration.  In all honesty, I'm not sure a mirror of this quality and size exists for a better price. It makes my New York City bedroom feel so much larger than it is. Most importantly, I know it will last for years and through many more apartments.
