You can’t hide anything from the mirror or so they say ” Mirrors never lie.” They are a true reflection of yourself. Frankly speaking, people fashion themselves in front of the mirror, but its time to realize that mirrors should be in fashion too!
Most people don’t really recognize how to make the most of mirrors as a part of home décor. Its the time for mirrors to be seen and admired than just reflect and show.
First things first, there is a need to realise that mirrors are a part of your décor and can be used in every single room. They can be the spokesman of your inanimate works of art.
They reflect light and create new dimensions in a space, amplify the apparent size of the room while adding another element to your décor.
Mirrors are often referred to as the aspirin of Feng Shui. If it’s done correctly the power of mirrors symbolically double your wealth, health and happiness. However when the Feng shui mirror placement is not correct it can do a lot of harm. The million dollar question you must ask yourself is “What does my mirror reflect?”
One must remember certain points while choosing mirrors. Always use clean, good quality new mirrors, although the frames might me antique. The bigger, the better. When hanging a mirror, you should be able to see the whole of your head and at least 5 inches above it.
The bathroom is one of the most obvious places to hang a mirror but that doesn’t mean that you need to go with the obvious when selecting your glass piece. Instead of just a traditional rectangular mirror over your sink, choose a mirror with a more unique shape. Even though this one is simple in design, the oblong oval shape makes it stand out as a decor piece in the room. The way that the oval is mirrored in the shape of the sink and then set off by the rectangular lights on either side creates a really interesting look. The placement of the sink and mirror here are nice as well since what you see in the mirror is the nature behind you.
Using a bold, large floor mirror as the focal point of the room can be all the artwork you need. Not only does it bring a sense of simplicity to your room, it reflects the light coming in from the window, giving your room an ethereal feel.
By adding mirrors to your home, you are playing a visual trick on whoever enters the room: the space looks larger than it really is. Make sure to place the mirror in a location that really takes advantage of the space and reflects more room rather than small decorative items, lamps, or the like.
So isn’t the mirror is the prettiest of them all!!!
