3 Tips for Decorating With Mirrors, Seattle, Washington

Mirrors can add light, depth, and style to nearly any space. Plus, they’re incredibly versatile, since you can invest in custom mirror framing to match your exact aesthetic preferences. If you’re redecorating a room or a whole home and want to make the most of these decor elements, use this guide.

How to Integrate Mirrors Into Your Home Decor

1. Use Large Mirrors in Small Spaces

Many designers use mirrors to make spaces feel larger. Oversized mirrors have the biggest impact since they reflect the entire space back and effectively double your line of sight. In small or dark spaces, don’t be afraid of choosing mirrors that take up the majority of a wall. This basically mimics the look of another window in the room.

2. Place Them Across From Visually Appealing Views

If your goal is to make a room look larger or brighter, place the mirror across from an exterior window. If you just want to add style, place it near pieces of art or architectural features that you want to highlight.

3. Choose Frames That Match Your Style

Mirror framing is what makes each individual piece go with the style of your home. If you’re decorating a room in a modern style, choose a minimalist frame with clean lines. If you’re going for a vintage-inspired look, opt for very ornate frames. The choice of frame can turn a practical addition into a feature that compliments the rest of your decor.
