The Mirror in Interior Design - In this article I am proposing some interior design ideas. I am also analysing the function of the mirror in interior design. In this article the mirror is seen as something functional. There is also obviously a decorative purpose to the mirror. However sometimes these points can be forgotten.
However you use them make the best of your glass mirrors because they have the capacity to turn a gloomy home into one filled with light and reflections of your decorative tastes. Do not look upon mirrors as being individual home accents but as components of an overall decorative scheme designed to bring out the best in your home. Combine them with lamps candles windows and natural light to light up your home and illuminate your life.
Mirrored Wall - To add sparkle light and beautiful reflections to the room you can mirror the wall behind the mantelpiece. Hang one large mirror on the wall directly behind the mantel. Or arrange several smaller ones edge to edge. Hanging several smaller mirrors is generally much less expensive than one oversized mirror. If you’re on a budget check out second hand stores or flea markets for interesting vintage mirrors. Or use mirrored wall tiles to completely cover the wall. Framed mirrors can also be used to decorate the wall behind the mantel. One large framed mirror will add an elegant look to the room. Or frame six smaller framed ones arranging them in a grid pattern which will add an interesting design to the room along with the sparkle. For added visual interest hang them on the diagonal to form diamond shapes.
Non-glass mirrors can be made using any clear substrate other than glass the most common being acrylic. These are generally less expensive than glass and some very cheap versions are nothing more than a polished metal surface. Here is a review of some of the mirrors offered by a selection of American furniture manufacturers.
Paula Deen items of furniture are made by Universal and another rectangular mirror offered by the company is 46 x 38 inches: these mirrors are available in a number of finishes to suit your home décor. If you feel a rectangle is not fancy enough for you then try out the Paula Deen Ladies Storage Mirror. This is a mirror with a difference with a solid wood frame and bowed top.
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.
