A mirror can be used as a decorative element to create captivating reflections, frame a view, and add flair to your home decor. Whether you prefer a modern or traditional aesthetic in ornate frames, sculptural designs, or a cluster of smaller sizes, mirrors come in an eclectic mix of designs and sizes to help you achieve your design goals.

Here are some ways you can elevate your interiors using mirrors:

1. Create a Focal Point:

Just as much of an impact as a painting, a mirror is a great tool to create a focal point and capture the attention of anyone entering the room. A well-placed mirror strategically hung to make a space feel larger or an oversized mirror propped against a wall will add a textural element and visual intrigue to any area in the home.

2. Increase Natural Light:

Mirrors are an excellent way to echo natural light in a room. Placing a mirror opposite a window or any natural light will reflect, frame, and enhance- this will allow the mirror to reflect the incoming light and distribute it throughout the room, effectively brightening up the space.

3. Add Depth:

Use mirrors to create a sense of elevation and brightness in a room. Place a mirror at the end of a hallway or a small room to fabricate an impression of a larger space. Additionally, use mirrors to create a sense of balance in a room by reflecting furniture or other design elements.

4. Enhance Decor:

Mirrors are versatile and can complement any decorating style. Decorative mirrors can enhance your existing decorative pieces to show in the reflection when used as a backdrop to other decorative items, such as vases or sculptures.

5. Make a Statement:

Large or uniquely shaped mirrors can add a touch of drama to a room. A unique and eye-catching mirror can also serve as a conversation starter and make a lasting impression on guests. Draw the eye and mount a large mirror in a living room to reflect other elements while doubling the impact of your favourite artwork or lighting fixtures.

When hanging a mirror

When hanging a mirror, remember these key points:

  1. Placement: Choose a location that reflects natural light or enhances the room's focal points. Opposite a window or across from a piece of art can work well.

  2. Height: Hang the mirror at eye level or slightly above. Consider the average height of people in the space for the best visual impact.

  3. Size and Proportion: Match the mirror size to the wall and furniture. A large mirror can make a small room feel more spacious, while a small mirror can accentuate a specific area.

  4. Safety: Ensure the mirror is securely mounted, using appropriate hardware for the wall type (e.g., studs or anchors).

  5. Style and Framing: Choose a frame that complements your decor style. A decorative frame can add personality, while a frameless mirror offers a modern touch.

  6. Reflection: Position the mirror to reflect visually pleasing elements, like artwork, plants, or a scenic view.

  7. Arrangement: Experiment with single or multiple mirrors for a unique look. Group smaller mirrors together for an artistic display.

  8. Functionality: Consider the mirror's purpose. In a hallway it can add depth, in the bedroom it aids in dressing and in a living room, it can highlight the space.

Remember, each space is different, so feel free to get creative and adjust these points based on your preferences and the room's layout.

Mirrors aren't just decorations; they're mood-setters, light-bringers, and space-definers. Remember, the mirror you choose isn't just an accent piece – so take your time, explore different options, and find a style you love.

Let's dive into the nitty-gritty of mirror selection!

Size & Shape

A carefully chosen mirror can become a statement piece or a focal point that ties everything together. A well-sized mirror also has this incredible talent for bouncing light around to even the darkest corner, where a room suddenly feels brighter and more alive. From the classic rectangular, charmingly arched, elegant oval, quirky egg-shaped, and even the daringly asymmetrical, mirrors comes in a mesmerizing array of shapes and sizes. Like a big, bold piece of art that anchors your room, mirrors can create the illusion of more space. So, when creativity strikes, whip out that measuring tape and aim for a size that snugly nestles into the area.

The Frame Of The Mirror

Next, pay attention to the frame. Preferring a mirror with an unconventional frame style- in that case, repurposed wood, vintage window panes, or a collection of smaller mirrors grouped together for an eclectic vibe might be your mirror's style choice. A distressed wooden framed mirror could be a favorable choice for a cozy cottage, even if you're in the heart of the city for a rustic look and for something more glam, a metallic or ornate frame as a focal point above your headboard.

Mirror Placement

When picking the perfect placement, consider how light plays into the equation. Hang a mirror in a spot that catches natural light or across from a light source to help brighten the room and make it feel even more open. An area that gains natural light opposite a window can do wonders for your space. If you're not blessed with tons of natural light, you can strategically place your mirror across from a light source. This could be a pendant light or even a couple of chic sconces. The mirror will bounce the light around, creating this illusion of a brighter, airier space.

Quality and Durability

Quality and durability matter, so when browsing through options, don't forget to give the mirror itself a good look. Check for any distortion or warping in the reflection. A high-quality mirror will show a clear image without any weird wobbles. And if concerned about durability, go for mirrors with thicker glass or sturdy frames as they tend to be sturdier and less prone to accidental mishaps.
