You know that mirrors make great home accents. They create focal points while making the room look bigger and brighter than it actually is. What you may not know is that there are several different ways you can use mirrors to enhance and highlight your interior design. If you’re stuck in a mirror rut, feeling like your current mirrors are boring or clashing with the rest of your design, consider trying one of these ideas on for size.
Create a Mirror Grouping
Rather than hanging a single mirror on a wall, why not create a mirror gallery wall instead? Group together several mirrors of different sizes and shapes on one wall to make a statement in your living room, dining room, or bedroom. The many mirrors will not only become a focal point in the room, they will also make the room feel much larger than it really is.
Use Some Mirror Tiles
If you want to add a large mirror to a room for its reflective properties, but don’t really want a solid wall of mirror in the space, consider using some mirror tiles. Mirror tiles are small decorative mirrors often with beveled edges and unique shapes that you can piece together like mosaics. The final effect has all the benefits of putting a large mirror in a space, but with the addition of also being a decorative and unique focal point.
Mirror Table Display
Get your mirror off the wall and place it on a table instead. Used as a tray to hold decorative or seasonal items, your mirror can become a unique and interesting centerpiece for your coffee table, dining table, or hall table. The mirror will reflect whatever is placed on top of it, giving it a little extra emphasis.
Make a statement with your mirror by hanging an oversized piece where you previously had a more moderately sized display. Oversized mirrors make dramatic accents in any room you place them. Look for decorative and ornate frames that pick up some of the accents elsewhere in the room to truly catch everyone’s eye.
