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...
Romantic Mirrors for Your Bedroom: The positioning of a mirror in your master bedroom can easily create the romantic atmosphere that you have always desired. Depending on the positioning of your window and any other architectural elements you can place a wall mirror at the head of your bed or on either side of the wall to create a stunning focal point. This allows the space in your bedroom to double and the mirror will subtly add more light to your room throughout the day. A heavily ornate mirror would work well in your bedroom there are a wide range of ornate mirrors available allowing you to select one that would blend effortlessly into your current bedroom interior.
Mirrored Candle Arrangements - Candles and mirrors just naturally go well together. To create extra sparkle on your mantelpiece lay an unframed mirror or a piece of mirrored tile directly on the mantel surface. Then hang or prop a small mirror behind it. Set one or more candles on the mirror creating an interesting arrangement. Using candles of different heights will add to the visual appeal. Then when the candles are lit the mirrors under and behind the candles will create extra shine and sparkle.
Color- The color of the mirror frame says everything about décor. Many people prefer classic color frames over other frames as they can get subsumed into any décor. Gold color frames are eye-catching. Their presence can bring grandeur to the room. People who are fond of unique things should look for contrasting combinations. Light colored walls should be filled with mirrors covered with bright mirrors and vice versa. Rustic color frames can bring peculiarity in modern décor.
At one time mirrors were made using a backing of mercury but these are no longer manufactured. They can also be made using silver precipitated from a silver nitrate solution. However today most mirrors are made by evaporating aluminum onto glass although other coats are applied to improve adhesion and durability. For example a black backing can be applied to improve opacity and reflectivity.
