Want to create the ultimate outdoor living space this summer? Well – once you’ve rustled up the rattan and rolled out the rug, a garden mirror is your next essential. Not simply an accessory, garden mirrors can be used to frame and draw focus to special areas, reflect sunlight into shady spots, and make smaller spaces seem larger.

To help you find the perfect garden mirror for your grounds, here’s five we love that are all still in-stock.

Oozing countryside charm, we adore the playful symmetrical shape and rustic cream finish of this smaller mirror. Just hang it on any garden wall to brighten up the space! Best of all, we love that it’s sure to look even better with age – as the shabby chic charm will only increase as the distressed metal weathers.

With its elegant arched design and decorative detailing, this rustic garden mirror will bring a classic and elegant touch to any wall it hangs from. Despite its delicate and rustic feel, the durable wrought iron framing of this mirror means it’s strong and robust enough to withstand the elements. Available for next day delivery and currently half price, we doubt it’ll be in-stock much longer …

Industrial Black Outdoor Mirror, £59.99, vonhaus.com

Much more contemporary in style, this arched mirror is simplistic yet bold. With its uniform window panes and thick black iron framing, it’s a striking piece that will bring a raw edge to your garden. For the ultimate industrial aesthetic, pair this mirror with other natural materials and textures like steel, brick and wood.

Indoor or Outdoor Marrakesh Mirror, £36, rockettstgeorge.co.uk

Boasting a traditional Moroccan shape and elements of Art Deco design, this elegant mirror will bring the rustic and effortless essence of Marrakesh to any outdoor space. For the ultimate bohemian balcony or terrace, hang this mirror on the wall, lay out colourful rugs and floor cushions, and use lanterns for lighting. A great way to do something a little more unique with your limited outdoor space!

Perfect for bringing a hint of gothic glam to your garden, we love the iconic arched silhouette of this gorgeous mirror. With its rusted iron finish, it gives off a truly antique air, whilst still looking opulent and glamorous. A super versatile piece, we could see it fitting well in both an industrial-inspired terrace, and a quaint and classical garden.
