Mirrors are basic accessories inside a home. Even if you choose to place them on the hallway, in the nursery or in the bathroom, the addition will offer beauty to the room and create a more spacious looking environment.
If you want to put a mirror on the wall, you must take under consideration what is about to be reflected into it. If it is placed on the wall in front of a window, it will borrow the image of the landscape outside and will create the illusion of another window. A valuable architectural element deserves to be reflected in a mirror and will offer balance to the room.
If the bathroom is the first room that comes to mind when you think of mirrors you may be used to see it placed above the sink. This type of mirror can be a simple one mounted on the wall or beautifully framed. It can also be a magnifying effect mirror for beauty purposes.
If you have a spacious bathroom, hang the mirror to a mobile arm so you can easily see your back. If the bathroom is very small go for a mirror placed above the bathtub and you will create the illusion of a bigger space.
A mirror able to show all of you from head to toes is the practical choice for the bedroom. If you have enough space, do not forget to use this accessory. You can place it on a wardrobe door and you will have the chance to examine yourself after getting dressed.
You can also place the mirror over the home office desk. This way the room will look more spacious and you will see what is going on behind you.
Placing a mirror near the front door is a wonderful idea. This way you can have a look at yourself before going out and if you have it reflect a floral arrangement; the effect will be even more amazing.
A mirror over the fireplace is a key element. It adds a drop of drama and helps reflect what is going on inside the room. Another idea is to hang the mirrors on the sides of the fireplace to make the room look bigger.
No matter where you place it, the mirror will add light, space and most of all, glamor to the room. Do not overdo it. Use the light effect and you will sure see how special will your home look with the help of mirrors.
