Tired of staring at the same four walls? You could change up your home décor with the simple addition of wall mirrors. Beyond giving you an excuse to check out your latest outfit, wall mirrors have long been the go to choice for many experience decorators who have been hired by homeowners to provide a fresh interior. When considering adding mirrors to your walls, you should think about all the possibilities.
One “out of the box” decorating idea would be to incorporate distorted mirrors into your wall scheme. These aren’t the full on “circus” type of wall mirrors but instead they could be round wall mirrors that are only slightly convex. You can also create the effect of a mirror by utilizing sheets of polished steel or other metals. Back in Cleopatra’s day, polished brass was used for mirrors. Using
distorted wall mirrors can create a surreal look that could pass as a form of modern art. Imagine impressing your friends with a mirror!
Another tip offered by designers in the know about the placement of wall mirrors or round wall mirrors is to angle them. If you can place these mirrors in such a way that they angle towards each other then the reflected images end up breaking into numerous fractures. The effect is a kind of mosaic design. This works best if you can angle two mirrors on the corners of a wall. Although you might not notice, this is the same type of decorating tip put to work in many upscale cafes and hotel lobbies.
Then there is the concept of fragmentation with regard to using mirrors to decorate with. With this method you would arrange the mirrors of different shapes next to each other. For instance you could place several different sizes of round wall mirrors in a row along one wall. The reflections in these types of mirror groupings come across as fragmented but not in a jarring way. The various patterns you can achieve will depend on the shape and sizes of wall mirrors your select.
You can create a kind of whimsy with your decorating by mixing round wall mirrors with traditional shapes. This doesn’t mean you need to turn your home into a funhouse of mirrors but using this method of decorating is perfect for a wall in a bathroom or hallway. It’s also a great chance for you to show off your artistic eye.
Mirrors can also be custom cut to fit in the back of shelves. This is a wonderful use of mirrors especially if you have some crystal or glass objects you want to keep on open display. Not only will this brighten up those objects, but it will also brighten up an entire room. Think about placing plants on shelves with mirrors for bonus blooming in the reflections.
Finally, you need not ever be kept in the dark when you add wall mirrors in your home. Hanging a perfectly placed round wall mirror can open up a room and reflect back light from a single source. Let your home shine with wall mirrors all about.
