Mirror Mirror on the Wall

By
Education & Training

Mirrors are so versatile. They have a practical and functional application of course, but can also be used as purely decorative accessories. If that's your plan, always ensure that the mirror reflects a beautiful image of something else in the room or beyond the window.

Do not hang them too high or you'll be stuck gazing at a blank ceiling ! Ensure your mirror doesn't reflect the messy kitchen - you'll never be able to relax when hosting your dinner party !

Go on ... walk through your home now and see if your looking glass can pass the "mirror test."

If so, SMILE and CLICK HERE for more ideas.  This website (HOUZZ.COM) gives me hours of enjoyment.  There are so many styles and images to browse through.  Whatever you are looking for, you'll find it here.

Sandi - I have a seller who put a mirror over her cooktop range because she got tired of turning her back on her family while cooking dinner! It actually looks wonderful! I also had a client who had a long, horizontal mirror hung too high in a room with vaulted ceilings. All you saw in the mirror was the whip, whip, whip of the ceiling fan.... Not great, but the home sold anyway :)

I agree that the placement of mirrors is important to reflect beauty in the house. And it helps to have a nicely framed mirror that complements the other furniture and style of a room.
