When it comes to decorating with mirrors there are never any rules. Yes, mirrors are a great way to quickly add visual interest to your space. Using mirrors as a decorative element has numerous benefits. It can instantly add depth and bring in natural light. In addition, mirrors can create a special effect when they reflect colors and paintings on adjacent walls. Here’s how you use mirrors to add style and increased light to your home.

 

  • Place a floor length mirror between two windows

Implementing a floor length mirror between two windows creates the illusion of a third window. This helps bring in more light to your space. By casually propping a large framed mirror against the wall creates a relaxed feel.

 

  • Use mirrors to enhance the room elements

You can use mirrors as an accent to the focal point in a room. For instance, by hanging a mirror over a fireplace mantel that extends to the ceiling, you can create a dramatic look. This is a great way to create emphasis in a neutral living room.

 

  • Hang mirrors on adjacent walls

Are you ready to make a powerful statement with your home’s decor? Try lining, two large equally sized mirrors on adjacent walls. This enables light to bounce all around the room. This look will especially complement the dining room area because it expands the area and gives the illusion of a bigger crowd around the dining room table.

 

  • Mirrored backsplash

Forget the traditional paneled or tiled backsplash. Update your kitchen by installing a mirrored backsplash around your counter area. A mirrored backsplash will open up a small kitchen and add glitz without being over the top.

 

  • Forget the medicine cabinet

Forgo the traditional medicine cabinet hanging over the bathroom sink. Instead, you can use a mirror of any shape to make a statement. A circularly shaped mirror can break up all the sharp straight lines and adds character.

 

When using mirrors as an accent piece in the home try to select mirrors with interesting shapes and unique frames for further customization!
