Interior Designers have taught us that mirrors have much more use in the home other than for looking at your reflection when grooming. Long gone are the days when mirrors were mostly a woman’s item, hand held to give the much needed reflection of her face. Today, mirrors come in all sorts of sizes including large sizes and have varied use in the home as follows.
Use Large Mirrors in Small Rooms
Large wall mirrors have a way of making a room look larger than it actually is. It is therefore advisable to install a large mirror on the wall just right above the dining room table to reflect the room’s light source, such as a chandelier.
Tip: For those who love the wall to wall mirrors, add sconces on either side of the mirror to give it a more modern look.
Use Large Wall Mirrors as Reflectors
Positioning the large mirrors just near where natural light streams in will help reflect this light into the room. Floor lamps and other light sources can also be reflected using a large wall mirror. This can be quite economical for rooms that receive little light or that are otherwise gloomy.
Use Large Mirrors as Home Decor Pieces
You will find mirrors of all sorts of shapes and designs out there. Instead of going for a large wall mirror that looks basic, shop around for contemporary, modern and even vintage styled large mirrors. Your interior décor will definitely find a mirror that will complement its theme while attaining the above goals. This mirror will thus be both functional and stylish.
