Need to Know Tips for Decorating With Mirrors
Posted on June 20 2016
Mirrors are extremely underused in interior design. There are just so many wonderful benefits to having them throughout your home. They can be used to reflect light, create an illusion of more space, or just to enhance the look of your home décor in general. As always with home décor, there are a few guidelines that should be followed.
Use large mirrors in small rooms
When you hang a large mirror in a small room, it creates the illusion of a bigger, deeper space. Do not be afraid to take up a large portion of the wall with a large mirror. A great look is placing a large mirror adjacent to a chandelier or your favorite piece of artwork so you can see your favorite home décor in the reflection. Try our 41.5” x 28” Trade Winds Furniture 158 island mirror.
Don’t just go throwing mirrors up all over your home
It may be tempting to put up a mirror to cover an empty space on your wall, but you have to be sure the reflection will show something worth looking at. You do not want your mirrors reflecting random items in your home. Set your mirror up so that it reflects a nice view or bounces light. If you’re a fan of rustic style, try our Roost Porthole mirrors.
Use horizontal mirrors in hallways and staircases
Horizontal mirrors hung in hallways and staircases will help to create a very nice flow from room to room. The mirror will also create the illusion of a widened space. You don’t have to go with a standard rectangular shape. Step out of the box with our Trade Winds Furniture 155 Maebre clover mirror.
