Mirror Magic!
| April 3, 2015

Planning to makeover your room? Bored of a dingy groggy looking hall? Or just tired of looking for decorations that work right in your room? Then ladies and gentlemen, there is just one accessory that you will ever need to set your space right. To put it simply, “get yourself a mirror!”. They make the perfect decoration in any part of your house, including the kitchen. Their special attributive properties of reflecting and replicating can affect the aesthetics of its surroundings dramatically. As masters of illusions, they are your best friends when it comes to decorating. They can brighten up dark spaces and make those tiny rooms look bigger than ever!

Like everything else in life, choosing the right one for the right space is very important. It can get a little overwhelming when it comes to choosing the one you need, because let’s face it, there are a bazillion outstanding ones out there! With a few basics in mind, this little problem can be ruled out too.

The first idea is to enjoy this process! Looking through the large variety of mirrors is actually a lot of fun. The simple rule to keep in mind is, to follow your heart! The perfect mirror will be the one that pleases you and suits the space you plan to place it in. The size of the mirror just has to be in proportion with the furniture and décor that goes adjacent to it. For example, large mirrors work wonderfully in living rooms, while circular and smaller ones suit best to powder rooms!

Here are a few suggestions and tips on how different mirrors can be added to decorate your interiors.

Using large wall sized mirrors as backgrounds to your living rooms can help add unbelievable glamour and aesthetics. Use a variety of finishes for your mirrors. Some colour schemes work best with matte finished mirrors that blend well with your room and help warm down the tones a little bit. At the same time a clear high gloss mirror can perk up any boring and dull room. Another wonderful way to renovate a well furnished living room is placing a large floor mirror. This is rather easy as, it requires minimal care while hanging, and gravity works best in your favour here! Having it reflect a large window, lamp or any light will help enhance the brightness in your room to umpteen amounts!

Got that awkward little space in your house? A mirror is sure to fix it! Find a subtle and aptly sized mirror to place into it, and let it work its magic. Strong framed and basic mirrors work best for such occasions. Make sure you don’t give it special importance while deciding your furniture designing ideas. Treat it like any other wall and feel free to place stools, end tables or even lamps in front of it. You will almost not believe how much it can help your interiors!
