The mirror is function: Suppose there is a small room e.g. a small-sized bathroom. In this bathroom the mirror is obviously functional. It is used by the man for shaving for example to wash teeth. However when a piece is so obviously functional as the mirror there are ways to make the mirror more decorative. I am saying here that in some way it is easier to make something so functional as the mirror in this bathroom setting into something decorative. You can aim to have a mirror with some element of ornamentation or you can choose to have a certain type of glass for the mirror. You can choose to have a certain color scheme in the bathroom and to use the mirror as the central element in this scheme.
The mirror is space:This is a well-known purpose of a mirror. When you have a large space e.g. a hall you can use mirrors in different ways to create more space and you can aim for this effect in small spaces such as an ordinary living room. However since you already have a large space in a gathering hall or a large retail area for example how should mirrors be used? Then the mirror can be used in such a way as to create the interior. This can be done when there are mirrors along a whole wall. There can be continuous mirrors along a wall or just long vertical or horizontal rectangles of mirrors. You can have a mirror then wallpaper then a mirror again. If the room is rectangular the corners of the space should have some design element. The corners of the rooms are where the walls ’overlap’ and interior design effects can be used to emphasize this area. The mirrors emphasize in some way the central space but the side corners can also be emphasized through objects e.g. lampshades...
The placement of glittering glass mirrors is just as important as their design and many people fail to make the best of these home accents by locating them wrongly. Glass mirrors reflect light so you should place them where they achieve this to their maximum capacity. Use them to reflect candlelight natural light from a window or even light from your beautiful decorative lamps.
However when a mirror is so obviously functional you can add mirrors that are more decorative in aim. You can have for example mirrors at the foot level. You can have mirrors which just show the abdomen level.
Mirrored Tile Mantelpiece - For the ultimate in sparkle you can tile your entire mantelpiece in mirrored tiles. Or a for somewhat subtler approach just cover the top of the mantel in the tiles. If you are covering the entire mantelpiece you will need such tiles plus adhesive. Measure the tiles and cut where needed with a glass cutter breaking the tiles carefully along the scored line. If you plan to only add mirrored tiles to the top of the mantel you could simply arrange several of them strategically to add sparkle without the need to use the adhesive. Either way your mantel will simply shine.
The Mirror in Interior Design - In this article I am proposing some interior design ideas. I am also analysing the function of the mirror in interior design. In this article the mirror is seen as something functional. There is also obviously a decorative purpose to the mirror. However sometimes these points can be forgotten.
