What to do with mirror?

I think the mirror is too small for the wall. Should I get a longer mirror and still have it go horizontal or get get a bigger mirror and have it go vertical? The wall needs something!!! Thanks!

It looks a bit like a vanity mirror the way it is now. How about adding some smaller framed art or a collection of smaller mirrors to create a grouping in odd numbers?

The storage unit and mirror should be larger.

First - no room will look well being cluttered with toys, etc. The mirror should be no longer than the storage unit, but it can be as tall as the top of the windows. You want to be careful what you reflect in the mirror - try to bring in some plants or candles to put on the storage unit - the mirror will double them in the reflection.

Good suggestions! I have no choice with the toys... That's the stage of life I'm in right now! Lol!

I think that the mirror could be raised a couple of inches. Since it is not a picture that is observed from a sitting position, it need not conform to the rules of picture hanging. To acheive more balance on the wall, it has to be higher.
