How to make your room appear larger with mirrors
It is a well known fact that wall mirrors not only add light and a very cheerful aspect to any room they also make your living space look so much larger.
If you choose to use either wall mirrors or decorative mirrors you will see a dramatic difference to your living space, and you actually don’t have to stop there because you can use mirrors in your living space in many different and creative ways and of course don’t forget floor mirrors.
If you have a large decorative mirror with a really good frame you can simply lean it against the wall and make an interesting interior design statement while appearing to increase the size of your living space.
When using wall mirrors you can double the appearance of an increase in size of your living space by strategically placing wall mirrors on the opposite wall while adding light. This mirror effect works extremely well in smaller rooms where natural light from any window is reduced.
The reflected light will increase the ambient light in the room and create quite an atmosphere, where this works really well of course is in a bathroom but as you practice with mirrored mirrors you will see just how dramatically any living space can be enhanced using mirrors.
The use of floor mirrors is something that has to be controlled, although the materials that they are made from are robust and non-slip it is important to use them in environments where they cannot cause people to slip or cause embarrassment to anyone who may be wearing a skirt.
When you use any mirror to make your room look bigger whether you are eventually going to attach it to the wall or not, try it in a few places first and not only get a feel for the light that it reflects but also take some time to see just how the mirror works with any windows.
It is surprising just how light and reflections change at different times of the day and you want to be able to enjoy the sparkle and light at the times of the day when you are home and using the room so be patient and take a little time before you do anything permanent.
