50+ Best Sunburst Wall Mirrors

Sunburst wall mirrors are one of the best ways to instantly add a dramatic effect to your wall decor thanks to their attention-grabbing designs. I like the fact that you can use them in a variety of homes, from modern to Scandinavian, as well as in offices where they can really enhance the style on their own.

A lot of times, sunburst mirrors are focused more on aesthetics, which means they might have a smaller reflective surface. While they still reflect light well and generally do a decent job at opening up spaces, you will have to put that into consideration and think about the overall effect you are creating before using them.

With so many types of wall mirrors to choose from, the sunburst wall mirror really stands out with its larger-than-life appearance. A slight variation would be the starburst mirror.

In this post, you can find lots of different designs that can find their way into your home.

How did sunburst mirrors come about?

Back in the days during the time of Louis XIV, who is otherwise known as the Sun King hence the name, he revered the sun and turned it into his personal emblem. It was actually the head of Apollo, son of Zeus, and was surrounded by rays of sunlight. The sunburst design was thus born. There was also evidence that he invented the sunburst mirror too, due to his love for both objects and also creating the first glass and mirror factory in Northern Europe.

Where do sunburst mirrors hang?

Sunburst mirrors work best when they are the focal point and they can be found in many different home styles such as rustic, modern, or industrial. They are super eye-catching and emits a bright glow which is accentuated when placed right in the middle of things.

I have a few suggestions on where to hang them:

Above a fireplace mantle

Wall decor for a guest room

Above a console near the entryway
In a dining room opposite a beautiful chandelier

In the study room behind the work table
