Decorating With: Mirrors at SYW

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014
Mirror, mirror on the wall, let’s make your home the fairest of them all. Mirrors make rooms look larger, offer a way to bring light into dark corners, and let you glance at your hair on the way out the door. Let’s take a look at our top reasons why you should have mirrors in every room of your home.
Mirrored Coat Rack Mirrors Add Depth

Offer the sensation that any room is larger and deeper than it actually is. When used effectively, mirrors can create the illusion that a room has actually doubled in size. This is particularly helpful for dining and living spaces that feel cramped.

Mirrors Are Focal Points

Create a point of interest by reflecting the twinkling light of a chandelier. Add dimension to a bedroom by leaning a large mirror against a wall at an angle. This helps you check your looks before you leave the house, and creates an interesting view in an otherwise blank space.

Mirrors Reflect Better Views

If your home desk is facing a boring blank wall and the view to your gorgeous garden is behind you, place a mirror in front of your desk so that you can look at your garden even when facing the wall.

Mirrors Are Art

Hang several mirrors together just as you would picture frames to create a stylish display. Be sure to keep the mirror size proportionate to the wall space, just as you would with framed artwork.

Use a tilting mirror on your dresser or nightstand to help you get ready in the morning. Decorative options are particularly useful for keeping your bedroom looking as stylish as ever. Choose a mirror that you love and it will be easy to keep your room’s decorating theme in sync.

Best Places for Mirrors

Home decorator’s say the same : mirrors work wonders in entryways and dining rooms! Bring light into a dark dining area, especially helpful during large gatherings. Entryway mirrors make it easy to make a final check on your way out the door.

Reflect Your Style

Keep any room looking cohesive with the help of a stunning and stylish mirror on your wall. Use candles, creative lighting or decorative accents in front of the mirror to reflect your style.

Special Effects

Try using a mirror to reflect light up a staircase, targeted at a houseplant that is currently in the dark. Tilt a mirror just so to view your favorite artwork from the kitchen. Choose your own frame to place a custom mirror in, selected to suit your own style.
