Isn’t it astounding how a mirror entirely amps up a space by providing it dimension and depth? From energy to luxury to the visual tricks, mirrors with bespoke designs can make a massive difference in the overall appearance of any room. Besides, given the handiness of mirrors, we take the liberty to say — mirrors are highly underrated interior decor pieces.
Below are five of our top design tips to put mirror glass to use for accentuating the beauty of your space while making the most out of them.
Placement is Key
When decorating your home with mirror glass, you don’t wish to miss any opportunity to squeeze the maximum out of this sparkly and one-of-its-kind décor piece. So, it all comes down to where and how you place a mirror.
The height at which the mirror is installed in conjunction with what it reflects, greatly influence the visual appeal of the space. If the mirror glass, for example, reflects a sloping ceiling, it is not the most flattering sight to behold. So, use mirrors to deflect attention away from any awkward or unpleasing spot of the room. Place it thoughtfully at a height to emphasise more on the plus points of the room. When placed strategically, they can become statement fillers in small but significant places that are too tiny for a piece of furniture.
Let There be Space!
For those of you looking for space and light, mirror glass turns out to be of use when installed in a small room or a narrow corridor. Go with oversize mirrors or other large wall mirrors to capture as much light as possible to give an expansive illusion to the room. In fact, mirrors can be placed as windows in a windowless room to make it brighter and instantly bigger.
Adding mirrors make light and images bounce off from different angles them and thus, imparting a sense of space in the interiors. A mirror distributes space and light in a way that contributes to the depth and energy of the room. This makes rooms look bigger and more spacious than they actually are.
Make the Mirror the Centre of All Attention
Without a shiny console or opulent furniture, a room tends to look dull and uninteresting. So, an essentially bare room can benefit from mirror glass as its architectural focal point.
A large mirror with an extensive frame can offer drama and playfulness to the room. While a more modern and distinct look can be achieved with a round mirror, for example, having golden or metallic detailing giving off that vintage vibe. Also, if the room has some focal point, a well-placed mirror can exaggerate its effect. Nonetheless, it is for you to decide how you wish to style the space to balance out all the elements of the room.
Besides, when it comes to decorative art, mirrors with unique and eccentric frames can well substitute paintings. Invest in lavish and fancy-framed mirrors to exude elegance, luxury, and style.
Breathe Life into Those Dingy Corners
Most of us have a room in our house or office that has windows brightening up the entire room, except for one particular corner of the room. This is where you can bring mirrors into the picture. See the light bouncing in the room when you install mirror glass behind a lamp or with mirrored wall art/furniture.
Besides, you can not only make use of artificial lights but can also exploit natural lighting with mirrors. Positioning a mirror opposite the window enables the outdoor scenery to reflect on the mirror, which illuminates the space while producing a scenic viewpoint. However, to ensure the longevity of the reflective surface of the mirror, make sure sunlight doesn’t dawn upon it directly.
With the thoughtful placement of mirrors, you can achieve a luminous and warm ambience. Invest in a frameless polished mirror or a sizable vintage-styled mirror glass, and you can thank us later.
Play around with Geometric Shapes
Traditional rectangular mirror glass is an all-time classic. But you must not shy away from experimenting with different shapes, sizes, and colours of mirrors.
The decor of your space is a representation of your unique taste and personality. So, if sobriety is your calling, go with a bevelled mirror or a large round unframed mirror. On the other hand, if you like going overboard with your interiors, then help yourself with opulent and eccentric mirrors in unusual shapes. The point is — mirrors are not bound to have practical use always. Enhancing your house or office with eccentric mirrors can be the aesthetic highlight of the space as well.
