Most American furniture manufacturers include mirrors in their range of bedroom furniture and some also manufacture mirrors for the living room or dining room. Bedroom mirrors are not necessarily restricted to that room and many are used all over the house - wherever reflection and a need to expand a room are required.
The mirror is function: Suppose there is a small room e.g. a small-sized bathroom. In this bathroom the mirror is obviously functional. It is used by the man for shaving for example to wash teeth. However when a piece is so obviously functional as the mirror there are ways to make the mirror more decorative. I am saying here that in some way it is easier to make something so functional as the mirror in this bathroom setting into something decorative. You can aim to have a mirror with some element of ornamentation or you can choose to have a certain type of glass for the mirror. You can choose to have a certain color scheme in the bathroom and to use the mirror as the central element in this scheme.
Another interior design idea is to put a folding mirror in the corner.. a kind of triptych of mirrors which fold inwards... Another idea is to have a mirror on one wall continuing into the other walls; Various effects can be used- e.g. two long rectangular mirrors of equal size at the corners of each wall...or else the mirrors do not have to be the same size at all. The mirror then is decoration and function. What about the mirror as space as something which creates space.
Mirrored Tile Mantelpiece - For the ultimate in sparkle you can tile your entire mantelpiece in mirrored tiles. Or a for somewhat subtler approach just cover the top of the mantel in the tiles. If you are covering the entire mantelpiece you will need such tiles plus adhesive. Measure the tiles and cut where needed with a glass cutter breaking the tiles carefully along the scored line. If you plan to only add mirrored tiles to the top of the mantel you could simply arrange several of them strategically to add sparkle without the need to use the adhesive. Either way your mantel will simply shine.
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.
A similar technique can be used in your hallway. Imagine your hallway brighter larger and much more appealing. Whether you choose floor to ceiling wall mirrors or a rectangular wall mirror you will be glad that you have chosen a mirror as your design element. The mirror can successfully add additional light to your hallway as well as creating an inviting space within your home. A crowded hallway would also benefit from the use of a wall mirror helping to define and open up the space.
