Custom mirrors can transform any space. They create a sense of openness, they make a room feel larger and roomier, and they add a sleek contemporary touch. But proper placement is very important with mirrors so you can reap their benefits to full effect. To that end, below are a few tips for decorating with custom mirrors.
How to Decorate With Custom Mirrors
1. Brighten Dark Corners
A room where light—from a natural source, fixtures, or both—doesn't reach a corner can feel shadowy and off-balance. You may be uncertain how to utilize this darker spot and how to dispel the feeling of gloominess. A custom mirror can breathe vibrant life into a nook like this. A large mirror will reflect the available light back into the space and get rid of the darkness.
2. Create a Focal Point Over a Fireplace
The area above a fireplace mantel tends to be one of the first places eyes are drawn upon entering a room. A custom mirror is a stunning statement piece perfectly suited to this focal point. It can be designed to fit the exact dimensions of the space for a full, comprehensive wall hanging.
Additionally, you can choose a frame that matches the mantelpiece and existing architecture and décor. When people walk in, they will notice the mirror right away and the depth and interest it brings to the whole room.
3. Enjoy Better Use of Your Dressing Area
Mirrors are functional and visually appealing, so don't be afraid to utilize them in bedrooms or dressing areas. Tall mirrors will let you see how an entire outfit looks and give you a convenient location to check hair or makeup before heading out. Consider a full-length mirror near a dressing table or vanity, on or near closet doors, or on a large empty space of a bathroom wall.
