How to Decorate Your Home with Mirrors

Mirrors can benefit a room in so many ways and really help style a home. However, it can be difficult knowing how to decorate with mirrors and knowing where to start. Here are a few ideas and tips on how to decorate with mirrors.

  • Know What the Mirrors are Reflecting- When you hang a mirror, it’s important to know what it will be reflecting. It is best to hang mirrors across from things you want to accentuate, like paintings, architectural design elements, flowers, sculptures, etc. You don’t want to hang them up across from something unattractive or unappealing to the eye.
  • Go Big or Go Home- To really capture the eyes of guests in your home, consider getting a bigger mirror than you planned to. A big mirror will make a more dramatic statement and help make the space look bigger. In smaller areas, consider floor-to-ceiling mirrors to give the illusion of sky-high ceilings. It is also best to go taller rather than wider with mirrors.
  • Use Natural Light- Placing a mirror where it will reflect natural light is another great way to make a space look bigger. It will throw the light around the room and give the room an airy look and feel. It is best to use this technique in smaller spaces like an entryway or a small bathroom with windows.

These are just a few ways you can use mirrors to accentuate beautiful features in your home, create the illusion of more space, and add a focal point to each room. Call us today at Inabinet Glass & Mirror Co Inc. to find the perfect mirrors for your home.
