Wall mirrors are an extremely popular range of mirror however it is not only your gym that could benefit from wall to wall mirrors. Indulge in the luxury of creating a visually pleasing brighter space in your home with the strategic placing of your wall mirror. Mirrors are perfect for spreading natural light in your home and transforming any dark corners. Mirrors also have the advantage of directing sunlight throughout your living space during the day unlike candle light and other standard light bulbs. At night your mirror will complement any source of light present and contributes to creating a wonderful atmosphere in your home.
At one time mirrors were made using a backing of mercury but these are no longer manufactured. They can also be made using silver precipitated from a silver nitrate solution. However today most mirrors are made by evaporating aluminum onto glass although other coats are applied to improve adhesion and durability. For example a black backing can be applied to improve opacity and reflectivity.
Dining Room Mirrors: A dining room can be the perfect place to experiment with a wall mirror. With your dining room table taking the centre of attention in the room you should look for a mirror that will complement this room. Depending on the size of your dining space a leaner mirror would enhance this space beautifully and create an ultra-contemporary feel. A simple wall mirror featured on your wall in your dining room could easily double your space. If you were feeling daring you could go for the wall to wall mirror design. This would work beautifully in your dining room and would create a sleek elegant look. It is also ideal for small dining spaces and could help brighten up your living space.
The Shape of the Mirror- Wall Mirrors come in copious shapes. The most commonly found mirrors are in standard shapes such as Rectangular Circular Squares. Contemporary Designers are coming with unusual Mirror shapes which are eye-grabbing. If your room is rectangular then hang circular mirrors which will be distinctive. Oval Mirrors are ideal for all places they can be used as wall accents. If you want to be different then search for themed mirrors. They can convey your feelings to guests.
In the early 19th Century mirror production had finally taken off as a decorative accessory and mirrors were extremely popular in both Europe and America. We can’t be fully sure as to when the first sunburst style mirror in the same design we know today was first produced however research suggests it could be any time within the 19th Century.
Traditionally sunburst mirrors were finished in gold however these mirrors are now available in a wide range of finishes including; silver bronze and black colours as well as wooden and even mirrored glass finishes offering a contemporary feel.
