With the exception of that dreaded dressing room version that most of us women hate, mirrors can greatly enhance just about any space. They have the ability to add light and depth to a room similar to what a window can achieve. Whether it be a physical decorative object or nature outside, beautiful elements within the mirrors surroundings will be reflected…and can you ever really have too much of a good thing?
A mirror can be used as its own focal point, as an architectural detail within a room, as a way to increase the visual span of a space, or to evoke a mood such as romance perhaps. If used effectively, they become a piece of art within a rooms walls. With so many varieties to choose from: plain sheet mirror, antique mirror, convex mirrors or concave mirrors to name a few, you have the ability to create a more contemporary or more traditional look as well.
Designers use mirrors in many creative ways and within their designs. A nice piece of mirrored furniture or accessories can add an instant shot of glam to a room! I must admit that I have even seen them used tastefully on a ceiling, over a bed. The possibilities are endless. So, if you have ever contemplated adding mirrored elements to your space, I suggest you give it a shot. I can almost guarantee that you are going to like what you see!
