Round and circular-shaped mirrors are trendy these days and have become a staple in modern interiors. Simply take a scroll through any Instagram feed with the hashtag #interiordesign or #decorating, and you’ll be flooded with images of walls covered with round boho and rattan style mirrors!
Of course, the only problem with a lot of those Instagram posts is that everybody seems to be under the impression that the only place for a round mirror is in the bathroom. Sure, they’re pretty inseparable. Round mirrors are simply perfect for that sort of thing. But that’s just scratching the surface of what can be accomplished!
In this blog, we’re going to explore the best ways you can use a round boho or rattan-style mirror in your home - other than your bathroom.
The main goal of any mirror placement in a living room is to try and enhance the available light in the space. Thankfully, many living rooms benefit from being next to some large windows, making available light an easy thing to harness. Of course, you might have some dark spots, which is where well-placed mirrors become pretty handy.
Round mirrors are perfect for this task and can easily find the sweet spot between enhancing the space without dominating in the process. This avoids the obvious pitfalls of oversized designs or especially luxurious french styles.
As a result of their timeless shape and design, round mirrors are perfect decorations for bedroom walls. Beyond the obvious enhancing abilities of mirrors we’ve discussed above, bedroom mirrors are great for adding some utility to a bedroom where you might want to have a look at yourself to decide the finer points of an outfit.
Round mirrors also work well in small spaces like bedrooms as they have an uncanny ability to increase the visual appeal of the room they’re in. This makes it easy for even the teeniest bedroom to benefit from a round-shaped mirror!
Home offices are all the rage at the moment, and it’s easy to see why, with remote work becoming popular due to the pandemic.
When designing or decorating your own home office, your biggest goal is to try and make the space seem less stuffy than what it can inevitably become. Using a mirror can go a long way to help out and can be a fantastic tool for living up a room that’s likely to feel pretty bland after some time.
A round mirror in the entryway of a home is a pretty cool way to welcome guests. Again, mirrors like these enhance the space they’re and effectively double the amount of light in the area at the same time. You want your entryway to feel bright, open, and welcoming to visitors - and there’s no better way to do that than with a carefully selected mirror.
Even better, an entryway mirror can also be a great way to make any final touch-up to your outfit or look before you head out of the door, given that it’s in such a convenient spot.
