3 Easy Ways to Decorate with Mirrors
Using mirrors as part of your design décor is an easy and effective way to maximize your dollars and brighten your home. Mirrors can morph any room, from expanding the feeling of space and volume to adding a sense of glamour.
Here are three basic steps to follow when decorating with mirrors:
#1 Review what the mirror will reflect.
Check to see what is reflecting from your mirror. You don’t want to emphasize a blank corner or anything unsightly. Try to bring the outdoors in by placing the mirror across from a window with a good view, or at least position a mirror so that it is reflecting the daylight.
#2 Place mirrors in dark spaces.
Do you have those awkward alcoves in your house that make no sense? How about lining the back of them with a mirror and placing lighted sconces in the middle? This is especially nice hallways, which are often dark and gloomy anyway. Adding a nice little accent light that is reflecting off a cool mirror will brighten the way and add elegance.
#3 Use full length mirrors when possible.
Use large and tall mirrors to give the illusion of depth, especially in small rooms or rooms that need a focal point further highlighted.
How about a large mirror in an entry way? This adds drama while maximizing an often small area.
When incorporating mirrors into your décor, be sure to reflect your home’s best assets. Whether it is reflecting a beautiful tree, bouncing light back into a dark room, or adding depth to a small room, mirrors offer the best return on your investment for all the right reasons.
