Mirrors make a significant contribution to interior design, in the functional as well as in the decorative context.
Some activities that we do every day, such as applying make-up or getting dressed – would have an uncertain outcome when performed without the “help” of reflecting surfaces. Therefore, mirrors increase the functionality of the room.
It is important to mention the aesthetic role of these popular home accessories. Whether a mirror is big or small, with or without a frame, of geometric or abstract shape – it gives a certain charm to the interior.
Also, the room with large mirrors becomes visually more spacious, because the mirror reflects the light thus creating the illusion of a larger interior.
The style of the mirror can be “blended” in the style of the interior, or, it can be an eclectic addition to the room. For example, a mirror with a richly decorated frame suits the classically-designed interior, however, in combination with minimalist furniture – sumptuous classic ornaments will complement the straight lines and simplicity of minimalism.
Mirrors embellish the majority of rooms in the home. For instance, the mirror-fronted wardrobe is an increasingly popular ingredient of the bedroom design. One should also mention the mirror as part of the dressing table or a decorative screen.
In the bathroom, a mirror is a “condition without which we cannot.“
The decorative side of the mirror is particularly essential in the living room design. When choosing a large mirror of the unusual shape or the one with an attractive frame – it is advisable to set it as the centerpiece of the room and keep the number of objects around it to a minimum. To highlight it, even more, place it on the wall painted in a contrasting color, such as dark red or brown.
If you place the flowers or a lovely painting across from the mirror – the reflection will double the beauty of the scene.
The wall decorated with several mirrors brings a touch of luxury to any interior. For the best effect, it is advisable to pay attention to the positioning of the mirrors. Also, this is a splendid way to add some playfulness to the design, simply by choosing a few different but complementary mirrors.
All in all, mirrors enrich the interior with the beauty of reflection – as well as with the reflection of beauty. Regardless of whether it is residential or commercial space – the interior decorated with a unique mirror becomes unique itself.
