Mirror, mirror on the wall
A room is rarely complete without a mirror. A mirror reflects light, instantly making a space feel more spacious and fresh. Choosing the right mirror for each space can also help to give your home a real designer edge, so here are some things to consider when looking for the perfect mirror for your home.
A mirror that is too small for a space will look hugely underwhelming. It won’t be functional, it won’t add anything to the room overall, and it is likely to just get lost amongst furniture and other decorative objects. On the other hand, a mirror that is too large or too ornate can quickly overwhelm a space. You should avoid reflecting clutter and choose a mirror that will help to showcase all the best bits of your room.
If you have a small room, however, a large mirror could be precisely what it is calling out for. A tall mirror will typically work best in this situation, as it will make your ceiling look higher and trick the eye into thinking there is more floor space than there actually is.
Mirrors come in so many different styles and choosing one that both fits well within the room's aesthetic and is something you will enjoy looking at is hugely important. Mirrors often unify a space, proving to be the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle and ultimately making your room feel complete. If you love all things vintage, an art deco style mirror could be the perfect fit; alternatively, if you are more of a minimalist, a simple modern frame with clean lines will probably fit better with your tastes and overall interior aesthetic.
You may think that reflecting a blank wall will help your room to feel bigger, but the opposite is true. Placing a mirror so that it reflects pieces of furniture or artwork will trick the eye into believing a room is comfortably housing twice as much furniture than it is. Reflecting a blank wall can also make a room feel stark, cold and unwelcoming, which is something you should avoid.
You can also use a mirror as the focal point of a space by incorporating it into a feature wall. You could gather together a collection of smaller mirrors and hang them together on the same wall, or use a larger mirror as a layering piece. You can really experiment with your creativity here by hanging some feature wallpaper or arranging some artwork around your mirror for a curated aesthetic.
