Round mirror or rectangular?

This is the wall from sitting room to hallway- we are just laying an oak floor in the hall!

We are going to build a radiator cover with horizontal slats and an oiled oak top (will put plenty of foil underneath to deflect heat out)...

I think we have a few options:

One- rectangular mirror about 70 x 90 with a book shelf above at the same height as ones over the television on the other wall (see black rectangle).

OR- a 70 cm round mirror with bookshelf

OR- a big impact mirror 80/90/100 diameter

The foil circle is 80 cm diameter.

It would be nice to bring more light to that end of the room, but is

big round mirror going to look too big?

Will a rectangular mirror reinforce the illusion of length with a horizontal radiator cover?

Very grateful for your thoughts and advice.
