Before you hang your mirror anywhere you should take into account what is across from it. Whatever is reflected in the mirror will usually give it more important than other items in the room. We would suggest hanging a mirror in front of a window as it will instantly increase the amount of light in a room.
Aside from the reflection, you should also always have your mirror at an appropriate height. Art for example should be hung at eye level whereas mirror placement will always depend on what you want to be reflected. Eye-level will usually be the best but it can work in a few other places depending on the room and the reflection.
Don’t be afraid to use a large mirror in a small space! Mirrors create the illusion of depth and space meaning they can help make a small room feel and look bigger. Full-length mirrors are also a perfect decorative element to use in a small room. A narrow and tall mirror is also great for rooms such as hallways.
A Focal Point
Mirrors make fantastic focal points in any room. It’s for this reason they are often placed above a mantelpiece for example. You could even hang two mirrors on either side of the walls to create a focal point in the middle or if you want to go even bigger create a mirror wall.
Mirrors come in a range of different sizes, shapes and styles, that’s the beauty of them, the choices on how they look are completely up to you. You also have so many frames to choose from too from wooden to copper and even frameless. There is also the mirror itself including smoky glass, obscure glass and antique mirrors. All of these different styles can contribute to a room in different ways.
Using More Than One
You don’t just need to use one mirror! Don’t be afraid to create a gallery wall with mirrors. It will look exactly like a photo wall when it comes to the placement but there will be mirrors there instead. This design is usually better in bigger rooms as in smaller rooms this style can make the room look slightly cluttered.
Mirrored furniture will never go out of style! It is a classic style that has stayed in interior design over the years. Mirrored furniture can work perfectly in simple rooms as it can add the perfect focal point in a room.
