Benefits Of Using A Mirror In Living Rooms
Fill in empty space
Got a wall or a corner in the living room that’s just empty and gives off a lonely vibe? Add a mirror to cover it up! Mirrors are an excellent architectural ornament to lighten, brighten and add aesthetic to an otherwise bare and dull background. They’re perfect to cover up those negative spaces in a living room design where other furniture pieces won’t fit. A wide space of wall can hold a much larger mirror. You could also try hanging three or four decorative square mirrors in a horizontal line across the wall. A narrow wall space is a great place to use a longer mirror to add height to the wall and cover more of the emptiness. To create a bolder focal point, an artsy sunburst-shaped mirror, or other unique decorative mirror, can really make the wall pop. Below is an example of a geometric mirror you can buy off of amazon retailing at 50 $.
Add light to darker spaces
As mentioned before, mirrors can be a useful way to add brightness to a room if placed strategically near the window where they can catch natural light and reflect it off around the room. A full length mirror between two windows can help to spread light around a room, and give off a more relaxed feel to the space. A large mirror hanging over the sofa that sits opposite a window reflects natural light all through a living room and gives it a warmer, more welcoming appeal.
Set a theme
Choosing a particular design of mirror can help you set the tone you want for your living room aesthetic. Whether you want a rustic antique vibe or a modern yet simple look, the frame and design of a mirror can help perfectly decide the aura you wish to create.
Create a focal point.
A mirror is a superb way to catch the eye as one enters a room. It can serve as a focal point to which all attention is immediately drawn to. A large decorative mirror over the living room sofa or one hanging above the fireplace is an excellent way to give the room a focus Centre. One can also place long floor standing mirrors on either side of the fireplace to achieve the same effect.
Placement is crucial!
Apart from placing a mirror across something visually appealing, it should always be hung at the appropriate height for the space. Unlike art which should always be hung at eye level, mirror placement will depend on what you want to be reflected. Eye-level works in many cases, but higher or lower can work depending on the situation.
