Mirrors can add that special decorative touch to nearly any room in your house. Do you have an empty wall space that you just don’t know what to do with? Consider a mirror that is both stylish and functional. In particular, a mirror can really help in a dark room to help it look bright because mirrors bounce light off of walls in the room. A mirror can also make a small room look much bigger because they help to visually extend walls.
Consider the Three “S’s”
When choosing a mirror, both the materials and the shape of the frame define the style. These days, mirrors are made of almost any material – wood, glass, metal and even resin. Mirrors also come in nearly any geometric shape you’re looking for – round, oval, square, rectangular and more. Mirrors also come in many styles from simple to ornate or from rustic to modern, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect one to fit your décor.
Generally, when choosing a mirror, consider the three “S’s” -- style, size and shape. Let’s say you have really dark wooden furniture in a room; you might want to choose a mirror with a similar frame for a toned down look or a metallic mirror for something that matches but contrasts to add a real “pop” to your walls. It’s all a matter of your personal style.
Mirrors don’t always have to hang on the wall, either. You can place a full-length mirror on the floor as a dressing mirror. It will also make your room look so much bigger. Consider a full-length mirror that is large but not so large that it overwhelms the room. Measure, Measure, Measure
Whatever mirror you choose, definitely measure the wall space you want to hang it on. Consider putting up some non-stick tape to outline the dimensions of the mirror you are considering. This way, you can really see the size of the mirror and think about it for a few days before you purchase. If your wall space is really high, consider a tall rectangular or oval mirror. If you have a short but wide space to fill, shorter mirrors usually fit the bill.
