As I was going through some photos of our work on our website recently, I was reminded why every room (or almost every) needs a mirror.
Its placement is key, but it’s also important to be mindful of what it reflects. Here are my thoughts on why mirrors add interest to any space.
Why Every Room Needs A Mirror:
1. It’s the perfect layering piece
A mirror is a great layering piece to create a collected feel in a room. In our client’s Foyer, I layered an antique Louis Philippe mirror with a framed piece of art and other curiosities to give it interest and personalization.
2. A mirror adds texture and dimension
This antique Louis Philippe hanging in my Living Room adds a different texture while balancing out the wood of the pecky cypress ceiling and doors.
3. It makes a space feel larger
In this Master Bathroom, the vanities mirror each other, giving this space the illusion it is much larger. Notice how we still paid attention to what was being reflected with the addition on a lovely nude sketch and small basket to catch everyday jewelry.
4. A mirror adds balance
Don’t over-clutter your walls with art – let the pieces breath and speak for themselves. Mirrors can help carry the weight of a wall without covering every inch with different art.
As we’ve done here, this mirror adds balance to a formal Dining Room where a piece of art would have been too much.
Hope these tips help when you are deciding where to hang a mirror in a room. If we can help you create a home you love, contact us here.
