Using Mirrors to Decorate Your Home


Mirrors, whether standard-sized or custom-made ones, are versatile home accessories that you can use to achieve different purposes. When strategically-placed, a mirror can make a small room look larger and brighter. A big mirror with a beautiful frame can be made as a statement piece in a room. If you want an item to get the attention of guests, try a lovely large mirror. It can serve as a focal point and a conversation starter. Decorating your home can be overwhelming and it will be easier if you know how to use mirrors in your design.

Enlarge a tiny room. Mirrors are a great and inexpensive way of creating the illusion of space in a small room such as in a dormitory or apartment. Place a mirror opposite a window and it will double the space of the area. This location also allows the mirror to reflect sunlight, making the room lighter.

Brighten up the entryway. Entryways are usually dark areas in homes. Hang a wall mirror near the front door to reflect light within the small confines of the foyer. For a larger entry, use a floor mirror instead. Place a console table in front of the mirror and add some flowers and lamp to create a stylish area.

Stylize the bathroom. The bathroom is one of the rooms that needs a mirror. Use a rectangular mirror with an ornate design to give the room an interesting look. You can also hang a mirror with a brightly-colored frame to wake you up in the morning before you go to work.

Choose a mirror that complements the space. When buying a mirror, one of the things you should consider is the color of the room where it will be placed. The mirror should enhance the style of the room and should help create a cohesive look among the other elements in the area.

Use a mirror as a wall art. Place a large mirror in an empty wall or hallway and you’ll have a functional work of art. Select a frame that has a beautiful and interesting design.

Open up a space. Securely place a big square mirror on one wall in the living room. The mirror will expand the space and can serve as an art piece. The wide glass reflects a large area, and bounces off light from natural and artificial sources.
