Lots of Beautiful New Mirrors to Create the Illusion of a More Spacious Home

Foliage Round Silver Leaf Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

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. Well-placed mirrors will visually increase the size of your home, making it feel larger than it really is. This week I've included some of my favorite mirrors. Just click on each photo for a zoomable image and more information.

The stunning round mirror above features layered natural leaves covered in distressed silver leaf with light antiquing. I really love the beauty of round mirrors, and this one is exceptionally special.

Please take a look at our stunning collection of round mirrors to enhance your decor. 

Uniquely Shaped Mirrors are a Popular New Trend

Framed mirrors in a variety of unique shapes and sizes are currently very popular. Use them in powder rooms, entries, dining rooms, or anywhere you'd like to add some style while reflecting light.

Bathrooms are a great place to use framed mirrors. A beautifully framed mirror will add personality and drama to your powder room. The powder room is often used by guests, and they will surely notice a mirror with a unique and stylish frame. Other bathrooms in your home 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?

Newest Trends to Visually Expand Your Home & Special Savings Through Oct. 4th Posted on 27 Sep 09:47 , 0 comments

Lots of Beautiful New Mirrors to Create the Illusion of a More Spacious Home

Bull's Eye Cross White Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

While I was at the Las Vegas World Market Center recently to view the newest trends in home design, I was happy to see lots and lots of beautiful new mirrors. 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. Well-placed mirrors will visually increase the size of your home, making it feel larger than it really is.

The unique decorative mirror above will add a bit of drama and interest while still reflecting light. One or more of these unique mirrors would make a beautiful statement in an entry or a dark hallway.

Please take a look at our stunning collection of decorative mirrors to enhance your decor. 

Starburst Mirrors Continue in Popularity

Starburst mirrors combine unique styling with the beauty and versatility of a mirror. Use them in powder rooms, entries, dining rooms, or anywhere you'd like to add some style while reflecting light.

Palm Leaf Starburst Gold Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor

You'll add a dramatic touch to your decor with this eye-catching starburst mirror. Palm leaf silhouettes, finished in gold, form the frame of this striking mirror.

I hope you'll take a look at all of our beautiful starburst mirrors.

Large Scale Mirrors Add Drama & Spaciousness

I saw a lot of large scale, oversized mirrors at the Las Vegas Market recently. Large framed mirrors can double the visual size of a room. Or place them opposite a large patio door or window, and they'll reflect the view, bringing the outdoors inside and making your home feel much larger.

Nevola Antiqued Silver Framed Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This distinctive large scale mirror features delicate details and is hand finished in a heavily antiqued silver leaf. You can place it over a low chest in an entry or hang it by itself on a wall. Just be sure to place it no more than 6 inches above a piece of furniture or at eye level if hung by itself. We have many unique large scale and oversized mirrors from which to choose.

Antiqued Mirrors Add a Beautiful Ambience

Antiqued mirrors create a subtle reflection that adds an enchanting touch to your home. They can vary in the amount of antiquing. Some are lightly antiqued, and can be used to see your reflection. Others are heavily antiqued offering a much more subtle reflection. 

Derowen Squares Antique Mirrors, Set of 2 - Innovations Designer Home Decor

Add a beautiful touch to your decor with these dramatic antiqued mirrors. Each frame is finished in burnished silver leaf. Offering a very subtle reflection, these mirrors are perfect for an area where you don't need to see your reflection, but want to increase the amount of reflected light, while adding drama.

Mirror Squares are Versatile and Eye-catching 

Mirror squares are usually small (between 18" and 24") and are usually sold in pairs, as are the burnished mirror squares below. Hang mirror squares side by side, one above the other, or place them on either side of a piece of artwork or stacked on a narrow wall. They may also be hung in a diamond shape or staggered. Use them in a dark hallway to add some brightness or on a stairway. There are so many unique styles to choose from and so many ways to use them.

Altha Burnished Mirror Squares, Set of 2 - Innovations Designer Home Decor

I love these earthy mirror squares. Use them to add an enchanting touch to your decor. Please take a look at our complete selection of mirror squares.

This exquisite mirror features arches at the top and bottom. Its frame consists of curved, hand beveled mirrors encased in a wood frame that's hand finished in a metallic gold leaf. We have a beautiful selection of arched mirrors from which to choose.

Bathrooms are another great place to use mirrors. A beautifully framed mirror will add personality and drama to your powder room. The powder room is often used by guests, and they will surely notice a mirror with a unique and stylish frame. Other bathrooms in your home 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?

Verity Brushed Nickel & Antiqued Brass Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This uniquely shaped framed mirror is a great size for above a sink vanity. Rectangular mirrors work well in a bathroom, but you may also use a round, square, oval, hexagonal, or arched mirror.
