The mirror is decoration: In the living room a lot of times the mirror is put above the fireplace and when you think about this there seems to be something decorative about this. It is decorative in the sense that the mirror seems to be the main ornament. It is a central piece of decorative furniture and even though its function is obvious decoration seems to be the main purpose. If the main reason is decorative then you can add to the interior by using other mirrors in a more functional setting and showing up the decorative purpose of the central mirror above the fireplace. Again in this living room setting you can show up the functionality and decorativeness of the mirror object by adding mirrors at foot level along one of the walls.
These mirrors work exceptionally well in entrance hallways; try positioning above a console table to create a striking focal point that will instantly catch the attention of guests. The mirror would look equally at home featured on a plain wall; they offer fantastic bursts of light therefore if you have a narrow and long entrance hallway a sunburst can help create the illusion of increased space.
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.
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.
