Why Use Mirrors to Decorate
Mirrors are not just for shaving or putting on make-up anymore. Mirrors are now a part of essential home décor and design. Because of the many shapes, sizes, and styles, mirrors are versatile elements that can immediately change the whole look of a room. Many seasoned Interior Designers agree that mirrors can do wonders: from illuminating dark corners or shady rooms to adding elegance.
Mirrors are used to create a sense of space. For example, realtors recommend their clients (home sellers) add big mirrors throughout the house to create the illusion of space – making their houses look larger and more spacious.
Because mirrors are delicate and, in some cases, worked on with mater craftsmanship, they can even be used as works of art. Remember that there is always a mirror for every taste, whether is ultramodern, vanguard or classic. You can get an idea of the mirror you may want to use by visiting our “Mirrors” page where we show examples of different designs.
Examples of how handy mirrors are by mixing some of the above ideas. By placing them in the right place, they add personality into one’s room. For a master bedroom you might choose mirrors that convey a formal look; while in the childrens’ rooms mirrors that are more decorative and fun to look at.
A wall mirror could bring mixed feeling. Let’s say that you put a large-sized decorative mirror on a wall with your picture adjacent on it. The mirror would reflect on the large picture, and the wall’s additional darker color would immediately give the room its much-needed depth just by choosing the right place and letting the mirrors do their magic.
Then again, everything is about choosing the right mirrors and to place them strategically. Get some ideas of the best mirror to use by visiting our “Mirrors” page.
