Creating the illusion of space in the home can be as simple as decorating with a mirror. The key is selecting the right mirror and styling it well. It will make your home look spacious and create a contemporary look and feel. This is because mirrors distribute light throughout a room, creating a bright and airy feel. It also creates a sense of allure,
While you’ll always find a mirror in the bathroom, they are a natural addition to any room in the house, from the hallway to the bedroom and even the kitchen. Many designers use mirrors to brighten up dim rooms and conceal imperfections in the wall. Opt for one that complements the style of the room, be it minimalist or maximalist. Mirrors are essentially an example of wall art. You can opt for quirky designs with asymmetrical shapes.
Introducing glamour and grandeur with a mirror is not only about the reflective quality. Mirrors can also become a focal point in a room. It is important to consider the mirror’s frame design, as these are far more than functional elements of home decor. They needn’t be bold, with items like this curved rectangular mirror exuding effortless and minimal design aesthetics.
There are many options when it comes to mirrors, from floor-to-ceiling designs to creating a gallery wall effect with a collection of smaller mirrors. There is also flexibility in terms of application - mirrors that can be fixed, hung, or leaned against a wall. Large mirrors are excellent to add depth to a room. Opt for one like this rectangular brass mirror in the dressing room, utilising the full length for both practicality and aesthetics.
If you need to create a statement, opt for a classic rounded shape with a bold frame like this golden mirror. This metallic option is stylish and will accentuate the other furnishings in your home. For example, metallic legs on a console will pop when you introduce that metal in a mirror hung above it. For a more dramatic effect, consider decorating your hallway with a mirrored console.
When introducing a mirror into a space, focus on the reflection as well. Thoughtful placement and positioning will ensure you’re happy with the overall look. Finally, proportion matters. A mirror needs to be measured to fit in your space and create the desired effect.
Mirrors are one of the best ways to invite more light into a room and make it feel more spacious. These reflective decor elements can completely transform a space. Shop for yours at Chattels & More.
