The Role of Mirrors in Interior Design

Malachite Round Mirror

Have you ever wondered how the perfect mirror is chosen to transform the look and feel of a room? With the evolution of so many different shapes, sizes and styles – mirrors have become more than a practical accessory. Interior designers and architects use mirrors as an effective tool to not only fulfil practical purposes but for a variety of creative motives. Read on for an insider look into the role of mirrors in interior design, how they can create impressive layouts and how they can ensure a luxury breathtaking interior dècor.

How to choose the perfect mirror for your interior

When selecting a mirror for your interior you should first consider the design, shape and size that will be the best fit for the space and what its primary roles are. Consider the following:

1. Do you want to enlarge the space? 

It’s no secret that mirrors can help a small space breathe. A wall or large hallway mirror is an excellent way to create interest and depth without taking up limited space in the actual room (just cover a wall instead!). On the other hand, smaller luxury mirrors can be an excellent choice if you don’t want to use a whole wall, or if you want to cover a whole wall covered in several mirrors instead. Used this way, they become not only a luxury accessory but also a tool to create depth, especially if paired with a light source. Try placing mirrors near windows, or a foot or two behind a pendant light or chandelier for example.
