The mirror then is space...and it is function.. and a good interior design idea is to look at the mirror in a living room. If the mirror is above the fireplace, ask why it is there. Is it for function or decoration or another reason or probably a mix of all three. In a living room, you may be unwittingly using the mirror as a central decorative object but you are not bringing out the full effect. This may be because of the mirror itself or general bad interior design planning for your room. In interior design, the purpose of the room is an important concept. The question of having a definite purpose for your room arises when you are looking at your room and its space. The mirror must have a specific purpose and this purpose can be brought out through the way the mirror or mirrors merges with the color tones in the room as well as the overall space and other furniture of the room.
The placement of glittering glass mirrors is just as important as their design, and many people fail to make the best of these home accents by locating them wrongly. Glass mirrors reflect light, so you should place them where they achieve this to their maximum capacity. Use them to reflect candlelight, natural light from a window, or even light from your beautiful decorative lamps.
Dining Room Mirrors: A dining room can be the perfect place to experiment with a wall mirror. With your dining room table taking the centre of attention in the room you should look for a mirror that will complement this room. Depending on the size of your dining space a leaner mirror would enhance this space beautifully and create an ultra-contemporary feel. A simple wall mirror featured on your wall in your dining room could easily double your space. If you were feeling daring you could go for the wall to wall mirror design. This would work beautifully in your dining room and would create a sleek, elegant look. It is also ideal for small dining spaces and could help brighten up your living space.
At one time mirrors were made using a backing of mercury, but these are no longer manufactured. They can also be made using silver, precipitated from a silver nitrate solution. However, today, most mirrors are made by evaporating aluminum onto glass, although other coats are applied to improve adhesion and durability. For example, a black backing can be applied to improve opacity and reflectivity.
