The mirror has always been a magical object that could make things bigger, that could depth to a space. It’s found in every home, and it can completely change its atmosphere.
One, two, or more? Where should you place the mirror? How big should it be? You can really combine as much as you like, but what should you do with a mirror when your space is small, and you want to make it look bigger than it actually is?
There are many things you can do in those cases. Some of the different tricks that designers commonly use will be explained here today so you can use them in your own home, and make your own space bigger in no time.
A neat trick that designers commonly use is placing two mirrors of the same size opposite to each other. It gives huge depth to the space, and your interior will look gorgeous. Placing two mirrors of the same size on opposite sides of the wall, on the same height, is a guarantee of beauty in your space.
Another trick designers often like to use is to color one wall darker, and another other wall lighter, because in that way, the mirrors will increase the light in the room, creating an illusion of great space, so your small room will look much larger. When you stand in front of the mirror that is one the darker wall you’ll see an infinite reflection of yourself in the mirror that is on the opposite, lighter wall, and it will look beautiful.
If you have a really large mirror, you can just try leaning it on the wall. But do that only if you don’t have small children. In that way the mirror will envelop the whole space, and seem like it’s opening it up, giving the space an entire new depth.
In the bathroom, having two mirrors that are small, will make the bathroom look bigger, and it will also a give a more romantic and secretive atmosphere.
Designers know their way in interiors, and they can tell you a lot about it. A cool trick they often like to use is to place a mirror opposite to a window or windows. The room will be made fresher instantly, it will seem much larger, and it will be plain gorgeous. The effect won’t be fully present if you have blinds or curtains on those windows, but it will still give your interior a very fresh and beautiful look that you will definitely enjoy.
The mirror frame also plays a nice role in the look and size of a small space. It should be somewhat thinner, lighter, and simpler. Of course, if you like having big and complicated ornaments on your mirrors, nobody is telling you not to have them, just that they work a little better in bigger space, and that smaller spaces usually ask for more simple and minimalist elements.2016-01-08
