Make Your Home Seem Larger Than It Really Is
Using mirrors is one of my favorite ways to lighten and brighten a home interior. Mirrors reflect light into a space to visually expand and enliven the decor. They are extremely versatile and can be used in just about every room in your home. Well placed mirrors will visually increase the size of your home, making it feel larger than it really is.
This week I've included suggestions for how and where to add mirrors to your home. Just click on each photo for more information and an enlarged image. I hope you'll take a look at all of our unique and beautiful mirrors.
Place a Mirror Opposite a Window Wall
Add mirrors to any room you want to visually expand. To make a room feel larger, place a mirror opposite a window wall. The mirror will multiply the view creating the effect of another window.
Be sure that the view the mirror is reflecting is a pleasant one that you want to see more of. For example, a colorful view from your yard will add color, beauty, and light when reflected in a mirror.
The elegant mirror above has a graceful arched top and is finished in a rust bronze with gold leaf undertones. Add some candle or wall sconces on either side for a dramatic touch.
Welcome Guests with a Mirror in Your Entry
Entries and foyers are a great place to add a mirror. This is the first place that guests see when they enter your home, so it's a wonderful place to set a warm and inviting tone. Adding a mirror above a console table or chest will brighten your entry by reflecting light.
A beautifully framed mirror will create a focal point in your entry, as well as a welcoming feeling. Add a buffet lamp for additional light, a vase of flowers for color, and a candle for atmosphere, and your guests will feel welcome the minute they enter your home.
The striking mirror above will work well in contemporary, transitional, and eclectic decors. It's part of our very newest mirror collection, all beautifully designed and well priced. Please take a look...
Add Personality and Drama to Your Bath
Bathrooms are another great place to use mirrors. A beautiful framed mirror will add personality and drama to your guest bath. The guest bath is often used by visitors, and they will surely notice a mirror with a unique and stylish frame.
Other bathrooms in the house will also benefit from the use of framed mirrors. The function of a mirror in a bathroom is to accurately show your reflection. Why not use that mirror to create a statement at the same time?
The lovely mirror above is perfect for over a vanity in your powder room, guest bath, or master bath. We have a brand new collection of wall mirrors that are perfect for use above a vanity. Please take a look...
Consider Adding an Oversized Mirror
Adding an oversized mirror to your decor can do wonders for making a room seem larger. Oversized mirrors can be hung on the wall or just leaned against it. In the photo above the elegant arched windowpane mirror serves as a focal point while enlarging the space.
Plan Now to Add a New Mirror or Two to Reflect the Beautiful Summer Light
