A mirror is a type of buy mode object that raises the room/environment need, just as other decorative objects do.

However, mirrors also have several interactions, the most important of which are charisma training and changing a Sim's appearance.[TS2][TS3][TS4] Changing a Sim's appearance with the mirror allows the player to edit the Sim's hair, makeup and clothes. In The Sims 2: Pets, the appearance of an adult pet's coat can be changed, and a collar can be placed on the pet or removed from the pet, as long as the pet can get to the mirror. As in Create a Pet, the player can use "Coat Colors and Markings" to customize the pet's coat, but unlike Create a Pet, the player can also select from several pre-made coats for the pet's breed.

Some medicine cabinets and closets have fully functional mirrors built into them that Sims can use.

In The Sims, mirrors are silver and do not show any reflections. Starting with The Sims 2, mirrors will show the reflections of any Sims or objects in front of them, although they will not reveal the player if they zoom in on one. As reflections are intensive on the graphics card, they may be optionally disabled to boost game performance.

Vampires have no reflection in The Sims 2 and The Sims 4, but in The Sims 3 they do. In The Sims 2, married vampires have visible wedding and engagement rings in mirrors.
