Think About The Placement
It is recommended that much like with a piece of art that you hang the mirror at eye level, however, this does all depend on the reflection that you desire. Just remember to place it in front of something attractive, this will be explained further in the next point.
Think About The Reflection
Before you place a mirror in your home, think about what is across from it as it is important to think about what will be reflected in it. You should think about placing the mirror in front of such as a painting or an interesting piece of furniture as the mirror will give that item even more important, unfortunately, this will be the same if it is placed in front of something unattractive. On the other hand, if you place a mirror in front of a window you will increase the light that is let into the room a significant amount, making the room look a lot bigger.
Most people who are decorating their homes buy a lot of a little, but sometimes it can be a lot better to think big. Using a large mirror in a small space will usually make the room look a lot bigger a create the illusion of greater depth. Full-length mirrors leaning against a wall can also be used as a decorative piece in narrow hallways for style and also again to make space look bigger.
Why stop at just one? Get creative with it. Treat it like a photo wall, and place them wherever suit fits. Make sure all of the frames are the same to create a more organised look. Mirror mosaics usually suit more modern homes and also homes with less clutter. Lots of little small frames in a cluttered room could make the room look even more cluttered.
Think About Style
Mirrors can come in all different shapes, styles, designs and sizes, it all depends on your own personal preference and style. Consider the effect that you would like to create in each individual room and go from there. You can get different types of glass such as smokey, antique, modern and many more, these can greatly contribute to the final look of a particular space.
Think About A Focal Point
A mirror can make a perfect focal point for a room, which is why they are usually placed above a central piece of furniture in a room. Place paintings or lighting on either side of the mirror to make it a great focal point or create an entire wall of mirrors for a perfect design feature.
