The possibilities of decorating with mirrors go beyond seeing what we look like as we head out the door. The latest home decor trends show that decorating walls with mirrors is not just practical, it's also a very effective way to interject your style economically but a necessity. Mirrors are often an inexpensive fix for the need for an energy shift. The strategic placement of mirrors in one place or another can have a dramatic effect on how large a room seems or even how open and light-filled a room can be.
Everything depends on the size, style, color, shape, natural light of the room. And also the function that the mirror really has to play in that space. Sometimes they are simply there to make the place bigger and others to multiply the sensation of light. Yet, others are only mirrors to look at, but full of style and in harmony with us and our home.
Using a mirror decoratively is actually treating it like a piece of art. When selecting a position for it, select an area that really shows it off to best attributes. Unlike a picture, though, a mirror's reflection needs to be carefully considered – that reflection will, in effect become a piece of art in itself. So, if you can position your mirror to reflect a beautiful view, fabulous architecture or a wonderful light fixture, you have mastered the art of decorating with wall mirrors.
