Mirrors aren't just designed to add a decorative touch to an interior. Mirrors are also the perfect solution for making a space feel brighter and larger. We know that using mirrors in your home décor might seem like a challenge but it is totally worth it, we promise.
Mirrors have the astounding capacity to give depth and character to a room without requiring too much effort or money. These highly decorative items can altogether transform an interior and certainly offer a brighter touch and can easily become complementary designs to your home lighting and furnishings.
Decorating using mirrors might seem like an art. For many of us the use of a mirror in our home décor is still limited to being able to see what our outfit looks like while we dress, or used when applying our make up or doing our hair. For some it may act as reference point where we can quickly have a look at your outfit one last time before heading out the door.
Mirrors can be modern, traditional, edgy, classic—pretty much anything you can dream or think of. The style of a mirror is all depends on the frame. Consider what effect you want to create when choosing a mirror in a frame. A beautiful mirror with a sleek metallic frame will have a far different effect on a room than a simple wooden frame mirror. No matter what your design preferences, we have a wide array of mirrors that will perfectly complement the style and design of your home.
Using mirrors as decorative accents in your home depend on the size, style, colour, shape, natural light of the room. As well as the function that the mirror really has to play in that space. Sometimes mirrors are simply used to make your room feel bigger and others to multiply the sensation of light in a room.
Mirrors can be used to create a sense of space, mirrors absorb the image and light of a room and make it bounce around the space. We are often told that less is more, for the most part it is true. If you are looking to create a statement with mirrors in a minimalistic way, more is often better. Picture your living room, it is almost guaranteed that you will have a couch, coffee table, side table and a few lamps. Now picture one of the walls in your living room full of mirrors. The feeling of space in your living room will multiply. Not to mention the elegance and distinction that will be added to your home by an entire wall covered in mirrors.
If your dining room is pressed for space, consider trying this handy trick, a wall filled with mirrors in your dining room will multiply the space and create an airy and welcoming feel your guests will love.
Round wall mirrors are a great option when decorating with mirrors. The round shapes have proven to be a very versatile decorative option, round mirrors provide harmony and elegance wherever you put them. Simply place five or six round mirrors, each of a different size but sharing the same frame, and you will create a beautiful glass mural. Large round mirrors add a touch of elegance to a room.
Hanging mirrors is much less complicated than hanging art. A mirror should always be hung at the appropriate height for the space. Unlike art which should always be hung at eye level, mirror placement will depend on what you want to be reflected. Eye-level works in many cases, but higher or lower can work depending on the situation.
