It is amazing what clever use of mirrors can do for your home and it is somewhat of a secret weapon in the world of interior design. Even if you do not have a huge amount of space, strategic use of mirrors can help your space to look and feel much bigger, brighter and airier which can completely change the way in which you and others feel when you enter the home.
Increasing Natural Light
Increasing natural light not only make a room feel bigger and airier but it can also bring proven health benefits. The best way to do this is by placing large mirrors directly opposite a source of natural light (the windows) – this will help to bounce natural light throughout the entire space as it effectively places a window on the other side of the room.
Clever use of mirrors can also increase the visual appeal of a room. You can do this through choosing a mirror with an interesting frame which can add texture, plus you can also position the mirror so that it reflects another item of visual interest in the room – such as a painting or vase. This essentially increases the visibility of the object so that the room becomes more attractive and stylish.
Of course, a mirror serves an important purpose in the home and can be used for much more than simply making a space look bigger. You also need to have mirrors around the home so that you can check your appearance, apply makeup, do your hair etc. You will find that table mirrors from places like Cox & Cox are particularly effective for this because it allows you to sit down while you use the mirror and they can be moved around to catch the best light.
You can also use mirrors in the garden in a similar way and make the space feel much bigger and more attractive – this is particularly useful if you have a small garden. Mir-rors in the garden are great for reflecting flowers and plants and helping to create a stylish space outside to spend time in the warmer months.
Mirrors are much more than simply an item for checking your reflection and they are a powerful tool in the world of interior design. The above are a few ways in which you can use mirrors which can completely transform your home and help to make a small space look and feel much bigger, brighter and more attractive.
