Second hand mirrors are one of the most versatile accessories you could choose to use in your home décor. When hanging a mirror there are a few things to consider so we have searched the net to discover what are the most important things to keep in mind.
The first thing to consider when hanging up a second hand mirror is what it will reflect. A mirror could reflect an interesting lamp or a lovely scene or a well-designed room. It could also refect any special ornements placed in your room to show off its fabulous details. If a mirror is placed by a balcony or a glass back door it could reflect your nice garden or a spectacular outdoor setting. Buying dual mirrors will reflect to different angles of your room which will make your room look very interesting and slightly abstract. If you have a certain painting or wallpaper you want to reflect, place a long mirror in the corner of the wall next to it which will repeat that pattern or painting you love so much. Whatever mirror you by, remember to consider what it will reflect as it will be very presentable and attractive if you do so.
Make Your Room Look Bigger With A Well Positioned Mirror
Another point to consider when hanging a second hand mirror is how to make your room look bigger and more spacious. One way to do this is to group some smaller mirrors together making your room look bigger yet organised.
You could place a mirror behind your stove. Traditionally this is a darker area but any available light in your kitchen will bounce off your mirror. By turning long skinny mirrors on their side will automatically make your room look longer which will be extremely effective in a smaller room.
Like you see in many restaurants around the world, by placing a mirror next to your dining table will allow softer lighting to be used, while still keeping the area light and bright.
Floor Length Mirrors
Floor length mirrors are great ways to make any space feel taller. Their long shape draws the eye up and carrying it around the room, making any space feel lighter and brighter.
Use Small Square Mirrors for a Window Effect
Place them behind a grouping of furniture or out on their own. Try using small square mirrors, tiled out to look like a window to give the illusion of what you wish was there, instead of what really is.
