Mirror, Mirror on The Wall—Using Mirrors to Create Space

Use mirrors to create depth in a small bedroom

We all have mirrors in our homes; today’s blog is about positioning mirrors in creative ways to open up your space.

Mirrors help create space by reflecting light making an area appear brighter and airier, giving the illusion of space. The key to harnessing the power of light is in the positioning of mirrors.

In an article about decorating in the Hisdustan Times, Furniture designer Urvashi Kaur gives some interesting tips for using mirrors. “Put mirrors on coffee tables and pillars instead of just hanging them on walls to create the illusion of extra space.” Mirrors can be installed on the fronts of furniture, (like free standing mirror wardrobes) to help create depth in a room.

If mirrored furniture is not your thing, you can use freestanding mirrors to create a similar affect. Placing a mirror opposite a window or other source of natural light allows the mirror to reflect the light out into the space. This is a great way to keep moveable furniture organized—it has a purpose in its space and therefore a permanent space.

Hanging mirrors also are a great illusion maker. Like other kinds of mirrors they can be strategically placed to reflect light but they have an added advantage. A hanging mirror can be placed over an end table with a lamp—creating a light source that will be reflected into the room.

When decorating with mirrors, be mindful of your personal style. If you are more modern, choose a mirror with sleek, straight edges. But do not be afraid of mirrors with beveled or fluted edges as these can add a nice, simple twist. Traditionalists can find beautiful antique style mirrors. If your style is somewhere in between, consider a mirror with an interesting frame or shape.

As always, let me know if these tips are helpful or if you have a tip to share!!
