TOP 5 DESIGN TIPS FOR MIRRORS

TOP 5 DESIGN TIPS FOR MIRRORS

A decorator's best friend is a mirror. Instead of just being a practical object in which to check your face, a beautiful mirror can be used to amplify light, add drama, create interesting reflections, and frame views. It's incredible how a mirror can completely transform a room, solving any interior design quandary in an instant. Take a look at our top ten design ideas for using mirrors in every room.
1. USING MIRRORS TO BRIGHTEN A ROOM
Simply place a mirror opposite or next to a window to increase the amount of natural light that enters the room. A mirror will reflect all available light (regardless of how overcast the sky is outside), so the larger the mirror, the brighter the space. Our Circle Mirror by Riflessi Lab has a simple and minimalistic design, and it can be positioned in every room of the house.Next to a source of light or a window is perfect to make a room bright and spacious.

2. MAKE USE OF MIRRORS TO INCREASE YOUR AVAILABLE SPACE.

Adding a mirror instantly doubles the space. Small spaces benefit from mirrors: convert a storage cupboard into a small work area or use a slim pier mirror to make a narrow hallway appear much longer. When it comes to updating your interiors, hang a mirror on your largest wall to reflect as much light back into the room as possible. This trick will increase the size of the room and make it appear larger. The elegance of Callas Mirror by Tonin Casa is a perfect example for this statement, enlarging the space and the brightness of the room to the maximum level and reflecting the natural lighting coming from the window to infuse brightness and warmth in the room.

3. SELECT A VARIETY OF MIRROR SHAPES.

The right-shaped mirror will maximise the amount of natural light that enters a room (when positioned in the correct place). Don't limit yourself to traditional rectangular mirrors. Consider the shape or style of your room and incorporate it into the frame of your mirror. Mirrors do not always have to be useful. An unusually shaped one will undoubtedly become a talking point while adding a wow factor to a room. The Emerald mirror by Paolo Cattelan is a beautiful and unique example of how to impress your house guests. A composition of multiple mirrors can be pleasing to the eyes, especially if the shape is unusual.

4. MIRROR HANGING TECHNIQUES TO EXAGGERATE SYMMETRY

Mirrors play an important role in framing your view. They create a sense of balance and harmony when used in pairs either side of a window or doorway, mirroring the opposite side of the room front to back as well as left to right. They are an excellent way to specify whether you want an orderly or eclectic layout.
The Farfalle mirrors by Riflessi Lab can be used to create a composition. Use your imagination and as many as you want to make a shape on a featured wall of the room.

5. THE DIFFERENCE IS ALWAYS MADE BY THE STYLE.

The appearance of a space is heavily influenced by the style in which it is decorated. Going into a completely white room with light-toned wooden furniture and lace tablecloths will not make us feel the same! In comparison to another room with saturated colours and metal furniture, right? So, too, will the mirrors. And, if possible, add a touch of contrast and distinction to balance everything out. Using a mirror with a large, gold frame, such as The Macrabe' mirror by Tonin Casa, with a traditional bedroom furniture room will help you achieve a timeless look.
