The mirror then is space...and it is function.. and a good interior design idea is to look at the mirror in a living room. If the mirror is above the fireplace ask why it is there. Is it for function or decoration or another reason or probably a mix of all three. In a living room you may be unwittingly using the mirror as a central decorative object but you are not bringing out the full effect. This may be because of the mirror itself or general bad interior design planning for your room. In interior design the purpose of the room is an important concept. The question of having a definite purpose for your room arises when you are looking at your room and its space. The mirror must have a specific purpose and this purpose can be brought out through the way the mirror or mirrors merges with the color tones in the room as well as the overall space and other furniture of the room.
The placement of glittering glass mirrors is just as important as their design and many people fail to make the best of these home accents by locating them wrongly. Glass mirrors reflect light so you should place them where they achieve this to their maximum capacity. Use them to reflect candlelight natural light from a window or even light from your beautiful decorative lamps.
