Having a designer mirror can be a fantastic way to infuse your home with an instant source of attention-grabbing style. If you have read any of our previous blogs, then you’ll know all about how many benefits a mirror can bring to your home.
Mirrors can push light into a space, pull the attention of onlookers towards a focal point, and even enhance the colors and details of your more comprehensive décor. However, mirrors aren’t capable of doing everything and usually need a little help to maximize their return. Thankfully, designer antique mirrors are always on-trend, meaning there’s an abundance of simple techniques and methods to make your mirror everything it promises to be.
In this blog, we’re going to go through some of the best trendy techniques to use when placing a designer mirror in your home. Read on!
If you’re happy to go for something stylish and you’re not too bothered about limiting the function, then a hanging pendant mirror could be the perfect addition to your home. Pendant mirrors look fantastic as additions to bathrooms, hallways, entrance ways.
Pendant mirrors are fantastic because of their adaptability. Whether you choose to have your mirror as a circle, square, or oval, a pendant mirror can change a space without changing the area around them. Instead, simply hang your mirror on the wall and enjoy the results.
Having a single mirror for a space can be a great way to create a focal point for a home, so it makes sense that two mirrors can double the effect!
Ok, so it’s not necessarily that simple, though the principle is valid. Essentially, doubling up your mirror and placing them right next to, or above, one another can be a fantastic way to guide a viewer’s attention towards a point of interest. Whereas a single mirror draws the eye towards itself, two mirrors in tandem force the viewer to consider the object below, above, or next to the mirrors themselves.
This effect is best achieved with a geometric design, such as a square or triangle, so rounder designs should be avoided. In addition, make sure your mirror has a detailed frame; this helps break up the space between the reflective surface and strengthen the guiding effect.
Lean and Mean
More prominent, oversized mirrors are well known for their ability to dominate a space and dictate the focal point of a space with ease. However, sometimes a subtler approach is required to make the best of a room.
Going for a slimmer design, such as a thin arch mirror, can be a perfect way to enhance a space without dominating entirely. Lighter designs are also ideal for completing eclectic looks with no specific style being wholly used.
