The Mirror in Interior Design - In this article, I am proposing some interior design ideas. I am also analysing the function of the mirror in interior design. In this article, the mirror is seen as something functional. There is also obviously a decorative purpose to the mirror. However sometimes these points can be forgotten.
Mirrored Wall - To add sparkle, light and beautiful reflections to the room, you can mirror the wall behind the mantelpiece. Hang one large mirror on the wall directly behind the mantel. Or, arrange several smaller ones, edge to edge. Hanging several smaller mirrors is generally much less expensive than one oversized mirror. If you’re on a budget, check out second hand stores or flea markets for interesting vintage mirrors. Or, use mirrored wall tiles to completely cover the wall. Framed mirrors can also be used to decorate the wall behind the mantel. One large framed mirror will add an elegant look to the room. Or, frame six smaller framed ones, arranging them in a grid pattern, which will add an interesting design to the room along with the sparkle. For added visual interest, hang them on the diagonal to form diamond shapes.
Color- The color of the mirror frame says everything about décor. Many people prefer classic color frames over other frames, as they can get subsumed into any décor. Gold color frames are eye-catching. Their presence can bring grandeur to the room. People who are fond of unique things should look for contrasting combinations. Light colored walls should be filled with mirrors covered with bright mirrors and vice versa. Rustic color frames can bring peculiarity in modern décor.
The mirror is decoration: In the living room, a lot of times the mirror is put above the fireplace and when you think about this, there seems to be something decorative about this. It is decorative in the sense that the mirror seems to be the main ornament. It is a central piece of decorative furniture and even though its function is obvious, decoration seems to be the main purpose. If the main reason is decorative, then you can add to the interior by using other mirrors in a more functional setting and showing up the decorative purpose of the central mirror above the fireplace. Again in this living room setting, you can show up the functionality and decorativeness of the mirror object by adding mirrors at foot level along one of the walls.
