The use of mirrors in home design

Almost all of us have mirrors in our homes. Some of us have one or two mirrors that we’ve carefully selected to stand out as decor pieces in the rooms where they are showcased. However, most people don’t really understand how to make the most of mirrors as a part of home design. The first thing that you have to realize is that mirrors can be used in every single room. They can be conversation pieces and works of art. They can reflect light and create new dimensions in a space. Or they can be subtly incorporated into the design of a room to enhance the total look of the home.

To choose mirrors for home design, you have to look at the size, shape and style of the mirror. You also have to carefully consider placement. And it wouldn’t hurt to think about places where multiple mirrors may be appropriate in your place. Done correctly, mirrors become more than something that you merely look into but something that you actually want to look at.

The bathroom is one of the most obvious places to hang a mirror but that doesn’t mean that you need to go with the obvious when selecting your glass piece. Instead of just a traditional rectangular mirror over your sink, choose a mirror with a more unique shape. Even though this one is simple in design, the oblong oval shape makes it stand out as a decor piece in the room. The way that the oval is mirrored in the shape of the sink and then set off by the rectangular lights on either side creates a really interesting look. The placement of the sink and mirror here are nice as well since what you see in the mirror is the nature behind you.

Alternatively, you can keep the standard rectangular or square shape of a mirror but choose an ornate design to bring something interesting to your bathroom. This one gives you a moment’s pause where you can take a deep breath and do a little bit of daydreaming in your bathroom before you embark upon your day.
