Mirrored Wall Art - Hanging a large piece of mirrored wall art behind the mantelpiece is another easy way to add sparkle and visual interest. There are many different styles of wall art, many of which incorporate mirrors or mirrored pieces. For a traditional look, choose a piece that combines wood and mirrors.

Mirrored wall art has the advantage of adding an element of design to the wall, which can help turn a simple fireplace and mantel into an eye-catching focal point.
The sunburst mirror has a fascinating history that dates right back to the 17th Century. During the 17th Century the Catholic Church began to use monstrances above the alter these elaborate designs were made up of decorative stands surrounded by glided rays of sunshine demonstrating what we know today as the sunburst style. These monstrances were often found in churches in Italy featured above the altar. The very first mirrors were very small and convex and it wasn’t until the late 17th Century that mirror production became more established and mirrors eventually increased in size.
