Using mirrors creatively in your home can make them not only useful for checking your appearance, but also for capturing lighting and projecting it into those darker corners of your home. Mirrors are a perfect piece of home furnishing that add drama, texture and the illusion of extra space.
Use mirrors to brighten up the room
Placing a mirror next to a window increases the amount of natural light that is cast into a room. The beauty about mirrors is that no matter how gloomy the weather can get, it will harness all the possible daylight. The bigger the mirror, the brighter the space will become.
Enhance a room with a mirror
Mirrors are great for creating illusions and deceiving the eye. They are so versatile that they can be used to enhance something or deflect away from it. Rooms that have an awkward shape, such as loft spaces with a sloping ceiling or a gap that is too small to fit any furniture, can be repurposed with a beautiful mirror.
Different shaped mirrors
Why stick with a traditional rectangular mirror? Consider the shape or style of your room and reflect that in the frame of the chosen mirror. Mirrors don’t always have to be practical; create a talking point about yours. Choose a mirror that has the ‘wow-factor’.
Framing your view in a living space is important for symmetry. One way to perfect this is by using mirrors. When used in pairs, they create a sense of balance and harmony.
