How to use mirrors to create space in your home

Posted on: July 27, 2016

Mirrors are a fantastic addition to any home, allowing you to create space and light within a room in an elegant manner. Here at Cameo Glass, we make a wide variety of mirrors, ranging in size and finish to suit any room. During this blog post, we will advise you on different ways to utilise your mirrors to create space in your home, bringing light and luxury to every room.

Place a full length mirror between two windows

This cunning styling method tricks the eye into thinking that there is an additional window, maximising natural light. Deciding whether to prop the mirror against the wall or whether to hang it is important, as it can change the look of the whole room. Whilst hanging the mirror gives a symmetrical feel, propping the mirror up will give your room a more relaxed finish.

Wall mirror behind a chest and accessories

By fitting a mirror that fits from floor to ceiling, you are sneakily suggesting that the room carries on further than it really does. Placing a chest in front of it gives your room a glamorous feel, whilst maintaining the illusion that your room extends beyond the furniture item.

Fit a sunburst mirror above your bed

Knowing what to use the blank space above a headboard for is a challenge for even the most experienced interior designers. If you want to create space in your bedroom, then adding a sunburst mirror above your bed is a great way to do this, and it will also brighten your room.

Prop mirrors behind bedside lamps

These aren’t to look in, however, placing them behind lamps will reflect the light into the room. This will create space as well as lighten the room, making them a great addition to your home.

Place a mirror opposite a window

By mirroring the window in your room, it will increase light and create space. This is a great option for a living room or dining room, as it adds extra views as well as making your room feel sunnier.
