Mirrors & Sofas: A Surprisingly Timeless Combo
Okay, it may not sound self-evident, but sofas and mirrors have more going for them as a team than you would initially imagine.
Sofas are often the centerpiece of the living room; they’re ultra-comfy and define the direction of the space. Sofas are also great multitaskers, able to act as dividers in small spaces and create natural sub-sectors of rooms based on where they are facing.
Mirrors have a similar effect as sofas, though they’re admittedly not as comfy. Mirrors are the perfect addition to any room looking to have a centerpiece and are similarly equally adept at enhancing specific zones within a space.
Combining a sofa with your mirror in a living room should be a walk in the park. Right? Well, not exactly.
In this blog, we’re going to explore some of the best ways you can combine your two favorite pieces of furniture to create the ultimate living room experience!
Embrace The Light
Mirrors love light.
That may sound kind of strange, but it is true. While a lot of light can be harmful, like when a mirror faces a window, a minor light source can be a huge bonus to a designer mirrors room appeal.
Sofa’s love light as well; just ask your pet cat the next time you find them snoozing under a sunbeam on a lazy afternoon.
Try making both work for you by combining both pieces with a window to create a gorgeous corner of warmth and light that is bound to make your living room unbelievably comfortable during every season of the year.
Pop Some Color
Color can be a massive tool in your arsenal to making a space seem more significant than it is.
Painting your ceiling the same color as the walls can work wonders by creating an illusion of added space in the living room as the line between wall and roof begins to blur. But, of course, you could also avoid this bit of extra work by using your sofa and mirror to double up the color in your living room. Sofas come in all shapes, sizes, and, most importantly, colors.
Make a Statement
As we’ve mentioned before, mirrors and sofas share the trait - their consummate centerpieces for the living room. So, why not make them work for each other by combining these pieces of furniture into a single centerpiece for your home?
Positioning a designer mirror, whether big or small, directly above or behind your sofa can be an incredible way to dominate a space with an undeniable attraction instantly.
This technique works exceptionally well for oversized mirrors that can fully encapsulate the sofa in front of them to create a chic framing effect that is bound to make your living space irresistible for visitors.
