When decorating a room, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the many creative options available in wall art. You may have considered paintings, photographs, stickers, or even more avant-garde options – but have you thought about wall mirrors? Depending on how they are used, mirrors can build on a funky, classic, or modern aesthetic in any room of your house.
A gold-framed antique mirror in a grandmother’s foyer or sliding mirror closet doors really open up a room, yet are often predictable. Thinking outside the box will create an unexpected yet delightful new look in your home. For example, a wall of mirrors often has a more impressive effect than one single sheet of glass. The type and placement of the mirrors can reflect your individual style. Check out these ideas to help you decide what kind of mirror design ideas work for you.
Shabby Chic: If you often find yourself rummaging through thrift stores for knick-knacks, consider combining a variety of mirrors to imitate the arrangement below. Mix and match sizes, styles and shapes from all different eras. To craft a slightly more unified effect, get only wooden-framed mirrors and paint them all shades of the same color.
Modern Minimalist: The mantra ¨less is more¨ was written with you in mind. You are attracted to clean lines when decorating, and you like your rooms as clutter-free as possible. Pick up a set of circular mirrors (available as decals) for an abstract, eye-catching display.
One-of-a-kind Design: Don’t you just hate it when a coworker comes into the office wearing the same outfit as you? Overdone or trendy interior design irks you just as much. Search galleries for mirror art or commission custom mirrors – like this puzzle inspired one – from your local glass professionals. Your house will be the talk of the town.
Country Queen: If you live to be outside among the trees and want your interior design to reflect your love of nature, these rustic mirrors will certainly work for you. They’re available for purchase or can easily be made at home.
No matter what your style is, mirrors add energy and an air of sophistication to any room. Feeling inspired? Visit your glass and mirror professional to see how mirrors can help make your interior design vision a reality.
