Here are all the ways to decorate your house with mirrors. Did you know that decorating your house with mirrors can transform the way it looks

Mirrors are super versatile. They can be used not just to check your outfit but also to add glamour and character to the room. If placed well, mirrors can make the room feel a lot bigger. Mirrors have a significant impact based on the lighting as well. If placed in a well-lit area, then mirrors can bring more light to the room, too. Well, mirrors are usually used to spread natural light which means they can also create an illusion of space in your house. However, all the benefits can be unlocked only if you know where and how to place the mirrors. You should also consider a lot of other factors while choosing a mirror for your space. For example - the shape, the type of frame, the size of the mirror, etc.

What are some of the things to keep in mind while selecting a mirror?

A big, decorative mirror when placed near the fireplace is a great way to bring some good energy to the house and also gives the perception of depth to a room.

1. When small means big

You will often hear interior designers asking you to use round big mirrors in small spaces. Why do you ask? They make the room look big. They also make a dimly lit room look brighter and add a little charm to a small space. Another little tip is to place a mirror across a window. This way the mirror will reflect the outdoor space and extend your indoor area. 

2. Beauty and art can go together

An artistic frame can serve two purposes - it can be a piece of art and at the same time can also be a mirror. An artistically framed mirror can also be a little less expensive when compared to a lot of art pieces that you might have to buy to cover for that space. What do we mean by artistic mirrors - the frame could have wooden carvings, a gold rim, ornate designs, has inlaid carvings or designs, or an intricate barn board, etc.

 

3. A gallery of wall mirrors

  

Three is always much better than just one. This is perfect even in the case of mirrors. If one is not enough, you can also try creating a gallery with three mirror pieces. Round-shaped mirrors are best for this experiment. Hang all three mirrors together on a plain wall for maximum effect. Designers will also suggest that round mirrors are better than rectangular or square when you are trying to create a gallery. Usually, such mirrors all look the same and are pretty much simple with the design.

4. Mirror accompanied with art

   

We have already established that mirrors can be art pieces. But when a mirror and art is combined, it just created all kinds of magic. A case in point is this mirror with a gold rim frame that almost makes it look like a flower. The designer has combined the mirror with some golden dragonflies placed all around the mirror. This design is elegant, simple, and minimalistic all at the same time and also grabs your attention almost immediately. Such designs are usually customized and made on special orders. Another cute design are sunburst mirrors that almost replicate a sun and come in different color tones - gold, silver, etc. Some of the sunburst mirrors also come with sparkly diamond fixtures that give it a shiny look adding more beayuty to the piece.

Remember It Is Ok to Make Mistakes

5. Colour-tinted mirrors

There’s something absolutely stunning, satisfying, and healing about seeing the world in a different color, especially when it is tinted glass. So why not bring that warm fuzzy feeling into your home? Tinted glasses are almst like Snapchat filters that just make the house look classy, peppy, and all sorts of cool. Just make sure to use this tinted mirror in a special spot at home and have nothing else placed next to it. We don't want anything else grabbing the attention now, do we?

   

6. Full size adds drama

    

A large, we are talking almost full-size mirror to a room. What can it do? It will add a lot of drama to a room. A dramatic effect or a standout mirror can be a statement piece in a room. Just make sure to place the mirror in the right space in the room so it gets all the attention. Also, make sure to decore the room accordingly.
