  • If you have furniture having a mirror built into it and you are unable to remove it, look at creative parts of it. If the mirror can be angled in another way - just angle the mirror in a way that it stops reflecting the bed at night and it’s done! 
  • A small rack of books with appropriate titles for the bedroom, or a free standing piece of bedroom art piece may work for hiding the mirror - it is up to you to figure out what can cover the mirror the best way so that you do not view yourself in it during night.
