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.
A fireplace can certainly add a beautiful and eye-catching touch to a room. However, you can add even more sparkle and beauty by decorating your mantelpieces with mirrors. Whether you choose to create a mirrored mantelpiece, or simply want to decorate the area with a few mirrors or mirrored accessories, you’re sure to add plenty of visual interest to the room. Here are some decorating ideas you can use to add the beauty of mirrors to your mantel.
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.
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.
