According to designer Andreea Avram Rusu there are never rules when it comes to decorating with mirrors. “Mirrors bring light and depth into rooms — they’re like decorative windows you can move around and place as you like,” she says.
Mirrors have several benefits as they help create special effects. Listed below are a few…
1. Mirrored Art
A bold and gorgeous mirror can be the focal point of a room. It could be used to reflect the light from a balcony and to serve as a last-minute checkpoint as the owners head out to work. The mirror itself could become the artwork in a minimal setup. Even a large wall mirror can bring simplicity to a space if used correctly.
2. Double the Space
Mirrors could be added to any space to visually expand it. The location and placement of the mirrors are very important while using it for this purpose. It should be placed at an angle that ensures that it doesn’t create undesirable reflections. The goal will be to maximize its innate qualities. In this instance, a mirror will serve to brighten the room, create additional luminosity and add dimension to the space.
3. Dramatic Effect
Full-size floor mirrors can make a dramatic statement in a small space. Using a framed, full-size mirror placed on the floor and resting on the wall can become an incredible asset in many ways in a bedroom, living room and even at the end of a hallway.
4. Mirror Crazy
Designer Jennifer Duneier believes you can never have enough mirrors in a home. Why not try something new? Hang multiple mirrors on the same wall. If you use them together on a wall, you want them to be grouped in a visually-pleasing way, similar to art pieces. The scale of the mirrors should be proportional to each other and to the wall space and you should definitely avoid using small mirrors on a large wall.
5. Design Must-Have
We cannot overemphasize the fact that mirrors can add an extra decorative touch to a room. Mirrors are like art in that the style should coincide with other pieces in your home. They are an integral part of the design style. Well-placed mirrors can aesthetically enhance an interior with the use of stylish frames.
