It always feels like we are trying to make rooms in our home feel larger. Whether we are knocking down walls or trying to give the illusion of space, a feeling of space makes us happy. Mirrors are a great way to give the illusion of space. They enlarge the room and they trick the human eye into feeling an expanded living area and they are affordable too. If you’re tired of your space feeling cramped, use these helpful tips to enlarge your space using mirrors.
Brighten a dark wall: If you have a dark accent wall in your space sometimes it will feel closed in and in turn make the room feel small and cold. Use a mirror on this wall to reflect the lighter side of the room and to “hide” a portion of the dark colored wall. For added interest choose greenery, or water elements to reflect back into the room. Your room will feel more spacious and more balanced with the nature features.
Mirrors in multi-functions: If you are short on space, consider using your mirrors on closet doors or on storage cabinets. Multi-functional mirror designs will solve the issue of enlarging the space but can also be used to show off decorative shelving and collections. Mirrors which serve multi functions will make your room work well and look great!
Mirrors as art: Mirrors are usually thought of in the framed form. Mirrors can also be a piece of artwork alone in a space. Do it yourselfer’s will enjoy visiting a glass and mirror store and creating your own creation for your space. Home improvement and furniture stores often sell accessories to their regular lineup of furniture. The ideas are limitless if you get inspiration from a decorative space you visit or online interiors hunting!
