Mirrors are versatile and transformative elements that can breathe new life into your living spaces. Whether you want to create an illusion of space, add brightness, or enhance your home's overall aesthetic, we've curated a comprehensive guide to help you make the most of our latest mirror collections.
1. Get the right sized mirror
Choose a mirror that complements the size of your furniture. Avoid mirrors wider than the furniture they hang above or smaller than half its width, unless used in a grouping or gallery. For tall mirrors, create balance with large lamps or ginger jars on either side.
2. Hang it at the right height
Position large mirrors about 15 centimetres above the back of your sofa. For mirrors above a fireplace, hang them fairly close or place them on the mantel. Position smaller wall-hung mirrors at eye level or create visually appealing groups.
3. Check the reflection
Strategically place mirrors to reflect light fixtures, windows, or appealing decor to make rooms appear brighter and more inviting.
4. Match your style
Choose mirrors that match your room's style by selecting the right shape and frame to complement your existing decor.
5. Make a dark room look brighter
Brighten up dim spaces by placing mirrors opposite windows or near light sources like lamps or chandeliers.
6. Make a small space feel bigger
Leverage large mirrors to create the illusion of spaciousness. Place mirrors in corners to reflect adjoining walls, making the space feel even larger.
7. Create a "window" where there isn't one
Add window-shaped mirrors to brighten dark corners by creating the illusion of a window.
8. Add a mirror behind a nightstand
Enhance your bedside table decor and improve lighting in your bedroom with a decorative mirror behind your nightstand.
9. Create interest in your bathroom
Elevate your bathroom's decor with a stunning Venetian mirror to replace a builder-grade one. Achieve a dramatic impact on your bathroom's design with a quick and affordable update.
