The size of the Mirror- It is the first thing to be considered. The dimensions of the wall will determine the size of the mirror. The mirror should not distort the charm of the wall décor. The size of the mirror also influences the nature of the room. For a vanity area, Select a mirror which suits the physical profile of household. For decorative purposes, use different sizes of mirrors for different areas. The place where you are going to hang the mirror puts a bar on their size. So, make a note of all dimensions of your area.
Mirrored Tile Mantelpiece - For the ultimate in sparkle, you can tile your entire mantelpiece in mirrored tiles. Or, a for somewhat subtler approach, just cover the top of the mantel in the tiles. If you are covering the entire mantelpiece, you will need such tiles plus adhesive. Measure the tiles, and cut where needed with a glass cutter, breaking the tiles carefully along the scored line. If you plan to only add mirrored tiles to the top of the mantel, you could simply arrange several of them strategically to add sparkle, without the need to use the adhesive. Either way, your mantel will simply shine.
Sunburst VS Starburst - Between the 1950’s and 60’s the sunburst mirror got a slight makeover similar to the mirror pictured below these mirrors became known as starburst mirrors. Usually they featured smaller circle pieces and other decorative features on the rays.. These mirrors however are still often referred to as sunburst mirrors. When you hear the term starburst mirror it is likely referring to a sunburst mirror but perhaps may have further decorative features.
Mirrored Candle Arrangements - Candles and mirrors just naturally go well together. To create extra sparkle on your mantelpiece, lay an unframed mirror or a piece of mirrored tile directly on the mantel surface. Then, hang or prop a small mirror behind it. Set one or more candles on the mirror, creating an interesting arrangement. Using candles of different heights will add to the visual appeal. Then, when the candles are lit, the mirrors under and behind the candles will create extra shine and sparkle.
