Mirrors are not only mysterious objects we find in old tales: they are also a stylish home décor element. These unique objects are able to expand the spaces without making structural changes to the walls of the house. Mirrors can become your best allies when it comes to house renovation, because they can completely change the look of a room effortlessly. The rooms will look wider, the interiors will gain depth and the light will be reflected in an unexpected way. Every home environment can be furnished with mirrors, depending on the result you want to achieve: it will be improved and gain personality. For example, if you want to create a welcoming atmosphere at the entrance, a mirror at the end of the corridor will make it look longer, as well as wider if you fix it directly to the wall. In the bedroom, instead, you will find it useful to get ready before going out in the morning, but also to decorate the room by choosing a precious frame. In the living room, moreover, mirrors will add a touch of light, taking the place of paintings and frames. Here are our tips to decorate your interior with mirrors, keeping in mind elegance and design, as well as the latest trends, and functionality.
Find the right spot
Hold your enthusiasm for a second: we don’t want you to turn your interiors in an amusement park funhouse, with mirrors everywhere. You must find the right spot to place a mirror, especially if you choose to hang it on the walls, just like you would do for any other piece of furniture or ornament. For example, you could create your own work of art, by placing one or more mirror inside a mosaic of paintings or other wall decorations: it will bring a lot of light in the room, and create an unusual home décor element. Choose it round or oval, so as to play with the geometries, in contrast with the squared shapes of the paintings.
