In Design Ideas

Did you know the inclusion of mirrors in interior design can never look outdated if being used in the right way. In fact, it adds in depth right into the interiors and also creates an illusion of more space. But for achieving the right effect, the key is to not overuse the mirrors throughout the space as it will just take away the charm whereas the minimal addition of mirrors will not bring in the effect that you’re are looking for.

Moreover, while introducing mirrors into the home, make sure to pay attention on the size, style and shape of the mirror. As well as everything that would be placed with and around the mirror. And here I am listing out various such wonderful ideas, that you could try out right away to transform your home in minutes.

Mirrors For The Long Narrow Foyer

If your homes entrance door open to a small foyer area, instead of the living rooms, then this would be first place where you could introduce the mirrors! The addition of the mirror here will just make the space look fab! Just opt for a wall mounted mirror and team it with an entryway table or a table with storage. You could further adorn the mirror by the addition of a table lamp or a planter to create a warm and inviting entryway.

Mirror On The Ceiling

Mirrors can look good on the ceiling as well! Especially in the living rooms, dining area and in the passages of your house floor plan. But make sure to team it well with elegant light fixtures, wall to ceiling panels and so on as the mere installation of glass as the part of ceiling design would end up looking cold.

Mirror In The Bedroom

The addition of mirrors in the bedroom has always been a debatable topic as the concept of bringing in mirrors in bedroom is avoided according to both vastu shastra and feng shui.

But just in case you are keen to add in large mirrors, be it on wardrobes or on the wall behind the bed, it would definitely make the bedrooms look glammed up and can make any small space look spacious right away!

Mirror For The Stairway Landing

The stairways of the home looks dull and dingy most of the times and needs to be adorned as well. Though we focus more on the walls of the stairway, but it is equally important to adorn the landing of the stairway as well. And with the availability of various decorative mirrors, large or small, one could easily achieve any look they wish for.

You may either opt for simple circular hanging mirror design or opt for a full wall mirror, the point is to make the unattended stairway look broader and alluring.
