Mirrors bring a good energy to a room. They are great for many reasons, they reflect light, open up spaces, allow you to check if your hair looks good! But when it comes time to hanging one on the wall, there is a little bit of an art to it.
What Does The Mirror Reflect?
Mirrors are usually hung based on available wall space, but it’s important to think about what will be reflected in it. When hung opposite of a painting or piece of furniture, it will give that item even more importance—as it will if hung across form something unattractive. Hanging a mirror across from a window will increase the amount of light in the room. I also really love when a mirror reflects a pretty light fixture or chandelier.
Don’t be afraid to use a large mirror in a small space. Mirrors create the illusion of depth and space so they can really help a small room feel bigger. A full-length mirror leaning against the wall is a great decorative element to use in a tiny room. Mirrors are also great for narrow spots such as hallways.
Create A Focal Point
Mirrors make great focal points. It’s why they are often placed above mantels. Hang sconces on either side and you’ve got the perfect focal point in any room. If you really want to go all out, cover a wall entirely in mirrors for a wow effect!
