The mirrors in your home have their practical use. You use it every day without even minding its natural beauty. When you think about it, they can also serve an aesthetic purpose. Custom cut mirrors will make any room seem brighter and more spacious, adding an elegant look and feel to your place.
A neutral piece of home accessory, your mirror can blend effectively in any interior design. Here are some tips on how you can use mirrors to decorate your home:
- Place large mirrors in small rooms. Mirrors or architectural glass, in general, create the illusion of depth. When placed in a small dining or living room, large mirrors can make the space look bigger.
- The best way to use a mirror in your dining room is by placing it on the wall just above the table. In the living room, you may install it across from a beautiful piece of artwork to maximise its significance and appeal.
- Install mirrors in staircases and narrow hallways. Small, horizontal mirrors can work well in narrow passageways. The effect will widen the space and create a nice flow between rooms.
- Make a long hallway look broader. If your home has a long hallway with a single windowed wall, installing a mirror to the adjacent wall creates the illusion of another windowed wall. Apart from lightening the space, it will also extend the line of sight.
A good rule of thumb when decorating with mirrors is to check their placement and what they reflect. They look best, for example, when they reflect light coming from the window.
