Decorating With Mirrors
December 16, 2014

As a design element for both residential and commercial applications, mirrors can make a big difference in the look and feel of any space. They can make a small space seem larger, add light, and create that perfect ambiance.

Finding A Quality Mirror

Decorative mirrors are widely available. But for your long term satisfaction, we suggest you budget for a high quality mirror. There's a reason that a high quality mirror glass is more costly than ordinary glass mirror--it's been highly polished on both surfaces before the vacuum deposition of the mirror material, because nothing shows a flaw in glass like mirroring.

The Reflection of Quality

Your choice of frame is virtually unlimited and is what determines the final cost of a mirror. There are thousands of options and colors are available for contemporary, traditional or antique frames. Of course, you may also consider creating an entire "mirror wall" to double the apparent width of a narrow room or to reflect light opposite a window.

Mirrors Heighten Awareness

Exact placement is important to get the specific effect you may be looking for. Don't be afraid to move your decorative mirrors around to see how they look. Along the way you will discover the few common sense rules for placement. Such as making sure they don't reflect areas you'd rather keep low key, like a storage area.
