Mirrors make a significant contribution to the interior design of the residential and commercial spaces, in the functional as well as in the decorative context. In other words, a reflecting surface can make your home or workspace more functional while making it look bigger and adding a decorative charm at the same time. Here are a couple of design tips on how to choose a mirror and where to place a looking glass in a room.

The decorative style of the mirror can be “blended” in the style of the interior, or it can be an eclectic addition to the room. For example, a looking glass with a richly decorated frame suits the classically-designed interior, however, in combination with minimalist furniture – sumptuous classic ornaments will complement the straight lines and simplicity of minimalism, thus creating the eclectic interior design in which opposites attract and highlight each other. In other words, when contrasting design styles are mixed and matched in the same interior space, their differences are complementary and create a unique and trendy home or office space.

Create a Focal Point

Use mirrors to capture visual attention as a natural focal point. For example, hang an arrangement of antique-framed convex mirrors on a blank wall to spice up the space with eye-catching accents. A single mirror in a stunning frame, such as a metal sunburst design or colorful tiled pattern, provides irresistible eye candy. And you can boost the aesthetic appeal of an existing focal point, such as a gorgeous fireplace, by hanging a complementary mirror above the mantel. Place glowing candles and a decorative vase of fresh flowers on the mantel in front of the mirror to increase the dramatic effect.
