Mirrors are more than just functional pieces; they can be focal points in your home's decor. When it comes to mirror decoration, there's an art to getting it just right. Whether you're looking to enhance your vanity mirror, bathroom mirror, lean mirror, floor mirror, big wall-mounted mirror, small mirror, lean mirror or any decorative aesthetic mirror you think at the moment, we've got you covered with a curated selection of dos and don'ts inspired by our design teams ideas. Let's dive into the world of mirror decoration and make your interior design snatched.
Select the Right Location
Do: Choose a strategic spot for your mirror. Consider placing it opposite a window to maximize natural light reflection. This creates an illusion of a brighter and more open space. If you have an empty space on a wall next to a window, consider the thickness and place that the curtain is also taking and place the mirror a bit far from the window.
Opt for Statement Shapes
Do: Think beyond the traditional rectangular mirror or other traditional geometrical shapes such as round mirrors, oval mirrors or arched mirrors, go for organic shapes. This will work as an art piece at your home that everyone will adore, including you. Browse from our irregular mirror organic shape mirror designs collections.
Mix and Match
Do: Experiment with different mirror sizes and shapes in a gallery wall arrangement. This eclectic approach can create a visually captivating focal point. Use your mirrors as sets of different sizes or even different shapes to create a gallery wall illusion at your wall. If you have a double sink vanity, you can opt in for a set of two mirrors and place them on different orientations to make it designful.
Add Depth with Lean Mirrors
Do: Lean mirrors against the wall for a stylish, laid-back look. This is particularly effective for larger floor mirrors in bedrooms or dressing areas. Looking for a lean, floor mirror? We highly recommend Brody Mirror as well.
Mirrors in Small Spaces
Do: You got a bathroom with a regular geometrical shaped mirror? Change it right away. Get yourself a design piece that you will look at everyday, literally from the moment you wake up, go to the bathroom to start your morning routine, it will be a part of your day.
Don't Overdo It
Don't: Avoid overloading a room with mirrors, as this can create a disorienting effect. Balance is key to a harmonious decor.We recommend using maximum of 3 mirrors in a single room, you can go for two big large wall mounted mirrors and one lean mirror that will not face each other directly.
Avoid Placing Mirrors Opposite Each Other
Don't: Refrain from positioning mirrors directly across from each other, as this can create a never-ending reflection, making the space feel busy and chaotic.
Don't Skimp on Quality
Don't: Invest in well-crafted mirrors that are free of distortions or imperfections. Budget friendly mirrors can be tempting but they can decrease the overall quality look of your decor. (Ethnik Living Mirrors are 100% glass with no distortion and has stainless steel frames)
Don't Ignore Scale and Proportion
Don't: Pay attention to the scale of the mirror in relation to the room. An overly large mirror in a small space or vice versa can disrupt the visual balance. Make sure you choose the right size of your decorative mirror.
