HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MIRROR FOR YOUR SPACE

Mirrors are one of those small decor pieces that make a big difference, but when it comes to choosing the right mirror for an interior space, there are a few guidelines we like to follow.

STEP 1: SIZE 

_
When you are hanging a mirror over furniture it is advisable to keep the mirror smaller than the pieces of furniture so that you do not overpower it. When hanging a mirror above a piece of furniture you should always allow some 'breathing room' around the mirror so that it does not clash with the furniture or seem too cluttered. 
When hanging a mirror alone on a wall, it should not be so big that it dominates and overpowers the space. You should select a mirror that is just the right size to make an impact, is functional in the space and creates a good balance.

STEP 2: SHAPE 

You can get creative when hanging mirrors over furniture and open spaces by using unconventional shapes to create an interesting contrast in your space. 
When it comes to choosing the perfect mirror for your space, we prefer to choose round mirrors if most of the furniture in the room is square or rectangular, this way the mirror creates a softer feel and adds a different dimension to the room and furniture pieces. Similarly square and rectangular mirrors work well with furniture that is more curved and rounded.

STEP 3: STYLE

When it comes to the style of your mirror, you have a wide array of options to choose from, traditional and classic to modern and unique. Experimenting with the balance of styles in a room allows you to mix up your mirror choice rather than just choosing the generic, safe option. 
A popular choice is to to choose a mirror that it not the exact same style as the rest of your furniture. Take a look around your room and try to figure out what the main style is, and what is missing. If your sofa and other living room furniture is more traditional, try a more contemporary styled mirror with sleek metal finished. And, if your furniture features a more modern style then try a more traditional, classic styled mirror.
