As we mentioned in our last post, mirrors are a great item to accessorize your home with! There’s a perfect mirror out there for everyone as they come in all sorts of sizes, shapes, colors, and material. The reflective quality of the surface can make any room seem bigger, which is great for those of you living in a smaller home; they visually expand the room. Make sure you hang your mirror at the right height though, otherwise you can be left with unfortunate reflections. For example, people’s feet and legs of furniture as opposed to the artwork on the opposite wall. Large, over-sized mirrors are always great in dining rooms. During dinners, with candles lit, it can give a warm, romantic feel.
No one ever said you have to just hang one mirror in a space though! Multiple mirrors can add a really great effect and become art in its own sense. Using two to three mirrors is pretty common but don’t let that stop you from creating a huge mirror focal point out of lots of smaller mirrors. We suggest no smaller than 8″ x 8″ squares. Round mirrors are a great choice in bathrooms where you have a bit smaller of a space to work with, but that doesn’t mean your limited to only that option. Mirrors come in a huge range of different sizes now so you’re guaranteed to find the size just right for you.
We’ve thrown together some of our favorite mirrors to help you draw inspiration for the next room you hope to re-do!
