Mirrored Wall - To add sparkle light and beautiful reflections to the room you can mirror the wall behind the mantelpiece. Hang one large mirror on the wall directly behind the mantel. Or arrange several smaller ones edge to edge. Hanging several smaller mirrors is generally much less expensive than one oversized mirror. If you’re on a budget check out second hand stores or flea markets for interesting vintage mirrors. Or use mirrored wall tiles to completely cover the wall. Framed mirrors can also be used to decorate the wall behind the mantel. One large framed mirror will add an elegant look to the room. Or frame six smaller framed ones arranging them in a grid pattern which will add an interesting design to the room along with the sparkle. For added visual interest hang them on the diagonal to form diamond shapes.
In the early 19th Century mirror production had finally taken off as a decorative accessory and mirrors were extremely popular in both Europe and America. We can’t be fully sure as to when the first sunburst style mirror in the same design we know today was first produced however research suggests it could be any time within the 19th Century.
