The mirror is decoration: In the living room a lot of times the mirror is put above the fireplace and when you think about this there seems to be something decorative about this. It is decorative in the sense that the mirror seems to be the main ornament. It is a central piece of decorative furniture and even though its function is obvious decoration seems to be the main purpose. If the main reason is decorative then you can add to the interior by using other mirrors in a more functional setting and showing up the decorative purpose of the central mirror above the fireplace. Again in this living room setting you can show up the functionality and decorativeness of the mirror object by adding mirrors at foot level along one of the walls.
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.
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.
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.
