4 Tips to Decorate Your Home Using Mirrors

by Carla Johnson

Mirrors have traditionally just served a utility function in the home. But, do you know they can be a part of your interior décor plan? When used the right way, mirrors can help you achieve unique decoration effects that will set your space apart. Here are a few ideas on how you can spruce up your home using mirrors.

Once you find a good floor space for it, you are set. Since it is meant to be a large item, ease of installation is essential. A big floor piece will provide functional value by giving you all the mirror space you require. It simultaneously provides a significant aesthetic benefit by becoming a design focal point in the room. A floor mirror also helps create the illusion of space making your room feel bigger.

Look for a large mirror that also has unique framing for best décor results. As a large item that will be a centerpiece for the room, a one-of-a-kind design will make a lasting first impression to those who enter the room. 

Use Its Location to Your Advantage

Where you place a mirror in the home has a lot to do with how it adds value to your interior design. Look for out-of-the-box locations for best results. One idea is to place it across a piece of art that you love so that it reflects its beauty to the rest of the room. You can choose to use a tabletop mirror to reflect an ornate chandelier for dramatic visual effect. 

Use One or More Mirrors in the Hallway

A Mirror work very well in small spaces to make them feel larger. Use several of them n your hallway to achieve this effect. Hang different mirror sizes and shapes on one entryway to create a design focal point. The same idea applies to a staircase too.

Add A Colored Mirror

Colored mirrors are a rarity and would be the perfect touch in getting your interior design to stand out truly. Color the frame using hues that complement the scheme in your interior décor. A creatively colored mirror will not only bring out the tones in your home, but it will be a regular conversation starter as well. 

Conclusion
