Decorating with Mirrors
There are many places around your home you can add a mirror. An obvious place is the living area. A large wall mirror with a detailed frame can be just as elegant as an elaborate painting.
Other places include the hallway (along the wall or at the end), the bedroom, along the stairway and the entryway. You can even install a mirror outside on the porch or on a wall adjacent to the garden. The latter is an especially good idea for those with small gardens. The mirror creates a perception that the flowers have spread further than they actually have.
Whatever locations you choose, the secret to decorating with mirrors is positioning and knowing how to mix and match. Make sure the mirror properly captures any light coming in. After all, the beauty of a mirror is coaxed out by light. If there is too little or no natural light hitting the mirror add your own light fixtures. An overhead or wall light directed towards the mirror will create a beautiful effect.
In larger areas such as the living room, hang several mirrors with varying shapes and sizes. Just make sure the mirrors are complementing each other and not competing for attention. For instance, you can have several round mirrors with different sizes. Each can have its own slightly different frame that blends well with the rest.
A mirror combo usually works best when all the pieces are hang on a single wall. This creates a sort of a gallery that becomes the focal area of the room. Try to choose a wall that is directly opposite the windows. This allows the mirrors to reflect more light around and create an even more dazzling style.
