On a recent project I was once again reminded how using mirror glass in interiors always has such a hugely positive effect on a room. I know it’s obvious but it really does open up a space no matter what the size of room or what the size of mirror used. Covering an entire wall is dramatic and doubles the feel of space but also just a sliver on a piece of furniture will trick the eye into believing there is somehow more depth to a room than on plan. See below the strip used on the headboard.
I love this bevelled edge trellis design. It literally doubles the feel of this dining room.
Mirror reflects light so can brighten a dark space such as a downstairs loo or add romance when the lights are dimmed and twinkle in the glass, especially when candles are used.
You don’t have to just use plain mirror, there are plenty of decorative mirror effects such as antiqued and Venetian. Quite an interest effect is when you hang a practical plain glass mirror on top of a decorative mirror sheet.
Love this antiqued glass screen!
I love to prop up a full length mirror or door with mirror panel against a wall for a cool, laid back feel
Mirrored furniture has been done to death in recent years and there are a lot of tacky cheap looking pieces out there but don’t let this put you off. I have a pair of Art Deco mirror glass bedside tables in our bedroom that could never be described as tacky! (Very practical for the odd tea spillage too!)
