Using mirrors for open spaces
For wide open spaces, opt for a larger sized mirror. A great option is full-length mirrors, styled as a wall leaning mirror or even hung slightly off the ground for a structured aesthetic. Vast areas can be awkward when choosing furniture to position within them, with empty spacing allowing interiors to feel barren. A full-length floor mirror is the most popular choice for these situations, a large arched mirror or decorative mirror can effortlessly fill awkward spaces. Bringing attention from peering eyes to a more beautiful piece whilst furthering the illusion of filled space.
If you’re looking for something more modern with more decorative features, grouping smaller mirrors together enhances the artistic characteristics that wall mirrors may bring. Never be afraid of trying new placements and styling, there is always something to be learned from creativity. Don’t feel as though these placements are permanent, move things around! Try everything you are open to before making a final decision on your mirror placement. Our biggest mirror tip is sticking your mirrors to the wall before nailing them on! Play around with the look and feel of your mirrors.
Lighting and mirrors
The most important factor to take into account when styling your mirror is the lighting. Note where the light is pouring into the room from, and where you would love to bounce light towards. Well positioned mirrors are the key to playing with light and creating a more well balanced space. Mirrors work to highlight your favourite parts of your interiors, whether that may be a reflection into the outdoors or decorative features within your home. Never place your mirror in a cluttered area, where the mirror may fade, and instead highlight less appealing features in your home; such as a messy shelf.
