That's a saving worth reflecting on

  • Following on from the sell-out success of last year’s statement mirror, Aldi are selling another window mirror design this week – only smaller. The petite new mirror comes with a smaller price tag too – at £29.99.

    This industrial-style mirror is a highly desirable design coveted in many a stylist’s home. To prove its style credentials we can report similar designs are stocked at some of the best homeware emporiums – such as Next and Maison du Monde.

    But the big difference with Aldi is always the price tag. Aldi’s superpower, and we’re still not entirely sure how they do it, is providing stylish home accessories for a fraction of the cost.

    The stylish mirror is part of the ‘Style Your Room’ Specialbuys range. The mirror is available to pre-order now, in stores from 2nd August.

    We predict at that affordable price, it won’t hang around for long!

    Look no more, Aldi have one on the way! The stylish mirror with its on-trend grid effect in black metal, can be mounted to the wall using the provided hooks. Ideal for hallways to add light and create the illusion of a window. But equally as brilliant in either a bathroom or a bedroom to add an industrial-style design element.

    The small, stylish metal mirror from Aldi is also available in a gold version too.

    Aldi vs Next – price comparison

    Now we love Next, they are one of our long-standing favourites on the high street, just to be clear. However we couldn’t help but notice the stark price contrast between these two very similar mirror designs.

    This stylish Next design features a more distressed, oxidised metal frame. There’s no denying the extra elements of design for this beautiful mirror, but it does come at extra cost.

    Last year’s Window mirror

    Last year’s Aldi design was strikingly similar one at Next. Going purely on face value they looked almost identical. The only obvious difference was the cost. The Next version is £150, compared to Aldi’s at £49.99.

    And while the Aldi is no longer available, the Next one is if you’re prepared to pay the price.

    Next have another design that will stand the test of time and be available for the long haul. The larger version measures 95cm square, framed in a black powder coated metal to create an industrial-style window – a look that’s so popular this season.

    This larger size is £150, which is still a great price for a mirror of this size. Just not as good as Aldi evidently – with the like-for-like design last year for just £49.99. Fingers crossed the larger design at Aldi makes a comeback for 2020.
