5 Advantages Of Using Mirrors In Interior Design
A mirror can add beauty and elegance to any room. In fact, using this design accessory to decorate your home is great way to add a maximum amount of style at minimal cost. Here are five advantages of using mirrors to decorate your home.
1. They create the illusion of space
A mirror’s reflective qualities give rooms the illusion of more space and depth and can make a small room look larger. A rule of thumb is the bigger the mirror, the larger a room will feel. One trick is to place the mirror on a wall opposite a window to maximize the effect. If you’re using a large mirror in a small space, make it frameless to prevent the room from feeling cluttered.
2. They can help illuminate a dark room
If you have a room that doesn’t get a lot of light, adding a mirror can brighten things up. In particular, a mirror placed near a window will reflect outdoor light into the room. Use this accessory to cheer up a dark basement, room with low ceilings or walk-in closet.
3. They can hide imperfections
You can use a mirror to cover up paint damage or hide ugly wallpaper. A mirror is an easy and low-cost item you can use to temporarily hide a room’s imperfections until you have the time or money to begin your renovations.
4. They add style
Mirrors are versatile design accessories. They work well in all rooms and complement every design esthetic. Whether it’s modern or rustic, in a guestroom or living room, a mirror can add style and finesse. Simply frame your mirror to match the room’s interior.
5. They can be customized to meet your needs
Most glass service centres can custom-cut mirrors to any size and shape. Mirrors shaped like triangles, stars, or hexagons can add whimsy or audacity to your living space. Additionally, if you have a broken mirror that you want to repair, in most cases the glass can be replaced.
