The importance of the mirrors in the home décor cannot be stressed enough. Along with the functionality, the mirrors add light and illusion of space in a room. Nevertheless, this is not all. The mirrors can add a lot of chic appeal to the décor as well.
This article is aimed at providing unique décor ideas to take benefit from the innate virtues of the mirrors.
Mirror as the table top
Mirror table tops can be as good as the glass table tops. A dresser or a chest can carry a mirrored top with perfection. The candles look great on a mirrored base and so do the crystal pieces, flowers or other decorative items.
Caution: Do not use mirror table tops in a room with overhead light fixtures. It will create huge nuisance by reflecting the light at angles that would dazzle the eyes.
Mirror frames matter
Mirrors on the walls are not just for brushing hair or fixing the makeup. A mirror can be a treat to the eyes because of the design of its frame. A mirror frames can be both, a focal point, and a theme coordinating element in a room. The choice of mirror frames for a room can range from antique to contemporary and from simple geometrical to very complex patterned. While buying, make sure that the frame of your choice blends well with rest of the room.
Mirrors can be used on the ceilings too. Especially the formal living rooms and dining areas look magnificent with the mirrored ceiling. The couples can also go for the mirrored ceilings in the master bedrooms.
Of course, the bathroom remains incomplete without the mirror over the sink. Other than that, the mirror can be used in the shower area too. One of my friends desperately wanted to shed some extra pounds. She had full length mirrors installed in her shower area. Not only that she got a constant reminder to lose weight but also her bathroom now looks spacious and illuminated.
I never knew about the mirror tiles until I saw them at the Wall Mart. I purchase them almost immediately and have not repented my decision once. These tiles come in different sizes, however typically in 12 by 12 inches. There tiles are easy to handle and install. Thus, these are great for DIY crafting projects.
Especially crafted mirrors are used as pieces of art. These include hand painted, etched, stained, glazed, and embossed mirrors. Many online mirror art stores offer custom made mirrors according to the taste of those who place the orders. So if you want to invest in unique mirror art, search online for innumerable designs.
