A room with bare walls is like a house with nobody home.
Even minimalists can agree that walls need a little something to style out the room and make it feel like it’s yours.
Art is beautiful and is a great way to reflect your style and personality onto your space. But today, we’re going to talk about the wonderfully versatile design feature that is so much more than a way to fill up wall space.
Mirrors come in an endless variety of shapes, sizes and styles. They help to open up a room and make it feel larger, reflecting the light and giving it an airy feel. Great used as a centrepiece or a subtle accent, mirrors can enhance any room design. Below are a few stylish ways to decorate your home using mirrors.
The sky is the limit when it comes to choosing a mirror as a statement piece for your home. You can go minimalist with a simple frame or even a frameless mirror. Or, you can go bold with an eye-catching design or a set of mirrors displayed together. Hang at the end of your hallway, over the mantelpiece or behind the sofa for a stylish statement.
Go big or go home, they say. Make an impression with a gorgeous oversized mirror. Propped against the wall, it will give the illusion of more space, making your room look bigger. No more arguments over who’s hogging the mirror. There will be plenty of space for the whole family to get a last look at their outfit for the day. This wooden oversized mirror is a great addition to this stylish interior.
Gallery walls are a popular decor feature and it’s not hard to see why. A stylish collection of different pieces, colours and textures displayed as a visual representation of your style and personality. Most people just think of art when it comes to gallery walls, but the addition of a mirror can make a big difference to your gallery wall. Use small mirrors to break up the artwork or use art to frame a large mirror. You could even make a gallery wall that solely consists of mirrors.
You could even go one step further than a gallery wall, with a mirrored wall. A surefire way to enhance the spacious feel of the room and reflect the most light to brighten the space. Play with different techniques like this mirrored wall that gives the room an industrial antique feel.
Help your bathroom or kitchen look more stylish and keep your walls clean with a mirrored splashback. Not only will this make the space feel bigger, but it will also be easy to keep clean by simply wiping splashes away with a cloth. A mirrored splashback makes a bathroom or kitchen look ultra-stylish and modern. Why not give it a try?
Whoever thought of combining mirrors and wardrobes is a space-saving genius. Ideal for smaller bedrooms where space is limited, wardrobe mirrors are both practical and stylish. Add mirrors to sliding wardrobe doors for extra sophistication. You can even cover up old wardrobes that have seen better days with a chic mirrored surface.
