Mirrors

Mirror

Most of us have mirrors in our home, but mostly we use them for practical purposes. But mirrors used as decorative item never gets enough attention.  They can be used as a finish material on walls, and as a cladding on furniture.  Hung over fireplaces and placed in frames, mirrors can transform a room from small to roomy in an instant.  Mirrors are extremely versatile in that they can represent any décor style, and can, some believe, be used in feng shui to channel energy!  

We are able to offer a vast range of bespoke framed and  unframed mirrors using a combination of our colour backed glass, plain or bevelled mirror tinted mirror, grey, bronze, peach and many other products allowing you to design something truly unique. If you are short of ideas here are few ways to use mirror in your next decoration project:

Add interest to a long hallway:

If your home has a long hallway, it’s a good opportunity to place groups of hanging mirrors on the side walls or completely mirror one entire wall.  This will double the width and help distract the eye when walking down the hallway, and will brighten up the darkness of the long corridor as well.

Brighten up your entry:

Mirrors placed in a hall reflect light and open up the space and give a place for guests to ‘check’ themselves while entering your home.  The mirror will open up the area so that you don’t feel confined within it. Put some interesting artwork on the surrounding walls and see them interestingly reflected in the mirror.

Make a room feel larger:

In small rooms and especially flats, mirrors offer an inexpensive way to give the illusion of space. Placing mirrors opposite of a window wall and see how the view is multiplied throughout the rest of the space.  Use mirrors in a small kitchen as a splash back and suddenly you will enjoy cooking and spending more time in your kitchen.

Place a mirror over the fireplace:

For most homes the fireplace is the focal point of the room.  Add emphasis to the fireplace by placing a framed mirror above the mantel. From objet d’art to seasonal decorations, a fireplace longs for a gorgeous mirror to complete it.

Dining Room:

Ever noticed how many restaurants use mirrors? This is because they add tremendous visual interest and allow us to keep an eye on things not in direct line of sight. Used at home in the dining room, or even an open plan kitchen/diner mirrors add an air of intimacy and quiet chic.

Bathrooms:

 Mirrors in bathrooms need not be just for looking in. Mirror makes a stylish, hygienic alternative to tiles, and let’s face it this is where our undressed selves will be be most examined in private and comfort.

Bedroom  mirrors can be fun:

 Full length mirrors are a must for bedrooms and could be a simple framed piece on a wall or you can have a mirrors that sit on the floor, and are seven feet tall. Both are a beautiful way to add emphasis to an empty corner of a bedroom. Use multiple frameless mirrors on a wall to give visual interest, as well as a dressing room effect in your room.  The possibilities are endless, and bedrooms are all about self expression!
