Mirrors can expand the feel of a room and add drama

The beauty of a mirror is a reflection of your design files – get it, reflection!

Yes, mirrors can be used as a design element rather than just as a functional tool to check your great look before you head out of the house. Mirrors can and do look beautiful in most rooms; they don’t have to be reserved for just the bathroom or entry way. Sometime, for design, mirrors don’t need to have any function at all. They can be used simply for aesthetics and be composed of lots of small panes or have a distressed surface that’s hard to view a reflection.

Mirrors come in all shapes, sizes and frame styles to complement any home style decor.

The reflective nature of a mirror helps to make a room appear larger and can also make a room seem lighter and more airy,  while the look of the mirror adds pizzazz.

A mirror can be the focus of a room or it can be an ascent piece.

Sometimes you don’t need to hang mirrors on the wall! Very large mirrors that goes almost from floor to ceiling can be propped against a wall, but make sure it’s secure and won’t fall down. You might also group several mirrors to anchor a wall.

Then there’s the frame.

A frame can be the focal point of a mirror and take up a lot of the square footage or it can be very simple, letting the glass mirror surface be the star. Frames can be made of wood, metal, ceramic, tile, lacquer, stone, or any other material. You can even make your own frame. Or, let your mirror be frame less.
