Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Using Mirrors in Your Decor
Aug 25, 2015, 19:28 PM
Looking for some fun and funky ways to make your decor pop?
We find a little self-reflection tends to help. That’s right, we’re talking
Incorporating mirrors into your home, beyond their necessary
spot in bathrooms and bedrooms, isn’t just for wicked queens. These surfaces
can add a lot to your space – like drama, light, and interest. Not sure what we
mean? Read on to see several ways you can use mirrors in your decor.
Trick the Eye –
Use a large mirror to make a small space seem bigger. This is a classic trick
and one you’ll see again and again, sometimes without realizing it. The mirror
reflects the room, giving the illusion of more space.
Any Surface Will Do
– Mirrored furniture is a trend we can absolutely get on board with! Not only
do these pieces tend to look great, their reflective surfaces keep places
light, and add a unique look to a room.
Add a Little Drama
– Creating a focus point by incorporating a dramatic mirror into your space can
be a great idea. We like this twist on the popular sun burst mirror. The frame
is still very eye-catching, but the actual mirror is larger than what you’d see
with traditional sun burst mirrors. It’s dynamic but still brings a brightness
to the room.
Fashion and Function
– Putting mirrors on your closet doors is one of the most genius upgrades.
Not only will it make your bedroom seem larger and brighter, it also helps
immensely when you’re getting ready.
Don’t Forget Your Garden – Mirrors don’t just add to your indoor space, they can add to your
outdoor decor as well. They make gardens feel larger, more whimsical, and visible
from more areas inside your home.
