There are many benefits to decorating your home with mirrors. Not only do mirrors add a touch of style and elegance to any room, but they’re also great for making a space feel larger and brighter too. In fact, with the right mirrors in the right places, you can completely transform your home.
At Fireplace Superstore, we stock a range of beautiful mirrors, so you could say we know a thing or two about how to decorate with them. Below, we share our top tips for decorating with mirrors and how to get the most out of them.
Sometimes, more is more
Mirrors help to create the illusion of a bigger space and therefore they’re ideal in smaller rooms. They can help to make a small space look larger. When it comes to decorating with mirrors, don’t be afraid to go large – sometimes, more is more. A full-length mirror leaning against a wall will not only look stylish, but it will add extra depth too. If you want to opt for a more polished, minimalist look, consider hanging lots of smaller mirrors to create a gallery wall. Again, this will add depth and style to any space.
Always consider the reflection
Remember, the mirror will reflect whatever is opposite it – so it’s important to consider the reflection when choosing where to put your mirror. Hanging a mirror opposite a window will help to increase the amount of light that enters the room, whereas hanging one opposite a painting or architectural element will add more character to the room and open up the space. Mirrors look great in every area of a room, but if you really want to get the most out of them, consider the reflection first.
Choose a mirror that reflects the aesthetic of the room
Mirrors come in a huge range of different styles, sizes, designs and finishes. Whether it’s a sleek modern mirror or a traditional design with a thick gold frame, it’s important that the mirror you choose matches the aesthetic of the room. Consider what effect you’d like to achieve when choosing a mirror – for example, are you looking to add a touch of style or is the mirror solely there to open up the space?
