Decorating Walls with Mirrors: Dos and Don’ts

Decorating Walls with Mirrors: Dos and Don’ts

For most people, getting their dream home built entails years of hard work and digging into your savings. But it’s worth it, because your house is far more than just brick and mortar—it represents your dreams, sacrifices, and ambitions.

This is why you should pull out all the stops when decorating your house. Make sure every element of its design resonates with your personal style.

One of the important elements of your home’s décor is the mirrors you choose for it. Here are some mirror dos and don’ts for your new home.

Do: Try Mirrored Furniture

There are a million things you could do with mirrors because they’re so versatile. So get your creative juices flowing and try out innovative, novel ideas instead of just hanging a huge mirror in one of the hallways.

Mirrored furniture is a great use of mirrors. One of its benefits is that it makes rooms appear bigger than they are, adding a sense of expanse. From coffee tables to cabinets, you can add mirrors to anything.

Do: use mirrors in a small room

If you have a room in the house that’s small and congested, you apply the same principle as above and use of mirrors to make it look bigger.

To take things up a notch, you can also place them in a way that they reflect a prominent object, for example, the chandelier or some artwork you like. Placement matters, so choose wisely!

Don’t: go overboard!

Although mirrors go a long way in giving your house the aesthetic you want from it, you can’t inundate your house with them. Putting too many mirrors where it doesn’t make sense can make your house look absurd.

There’s no need for mirrors in the kitchen or the balcony. You’ll only be adding to your costs without any payoff. This is because kitchen fumes and moisture can cause huge maintenance issues.

Don’t: ignore maintenance

Mirrors are not only prominent objects in any room, but are also highly noticeable for guests. So if you live in an area where the moisture in the atmosphere is high, you can’t afford to skip on maintenance for your mirrors.

This doesn’t just mean getting the frames polished but also the mirror replaced if it has been cracked.
