Mirrors have been long known as very multifunctional things that are useful for humans’ lives. Moreover, mirrors also have been popular their decorative functions. That is what makes today we are quite familiar to the term mirror wall decor.
The most useful feature of mirrors in the sphere of home décor is their ability to make small rooms to feel like somewhat larger spaces. Each mirror naturally reflects things before it, which seems like multiplying those things. For instance, in a room with a table, you can see as if there are two tables in there with the presence of a large mirror.
Notwithstanding that function, I think a mirror is somehow not always recommended to use when it comes to decorating a room because the superiorities can mean nothing in some particular circumstances. Then, what kinds of circumstances are they?
1. In quite large rooms
What is the point of installing a couple of large mirrors in a large room if it is not for dressing up? A large room doesn’t really need mirrors excessively. The availability of too many mirrors will only make the room feel less comfortable. Too many things will be reflected creating scenery that is just too crowded. It is never easy to take a rest in such an environment.
This certainly contrasts to how mirrors are able to show their optimal uses in small-sized rooms because that is, indeed, the very decorative function of a mirror.
2. Mirrors on any wall in the house
The popular idea of installing a mirror on a wall doesn’t mean a mirror will be great to be hung on any wall on any side of a house. It is totally a mistake thinking that anything will look good when reflected by a mirror. That is simply nonsense. A mirror wall decor idea theoretically is an idea of installing a mirror on a certain wall in a certain chosen area in a house. In short, only good things are worth reflected.
3. Mirrors in the bedroom and kitchen
That is why mirrors don’t need to be hung in the kitchen and bedroom. Especially in the kitchen, there have been so many things within that the presence of too many or too large mirrors will just make them (as if) multiplied. Besides, such a space is identical to messy things. Could you imagine how the room look and feel if such an idea is applied? On the other hand, in the bedroom, the idea of mirror wall décor may be hardly suitable because it contradicts some ideas about the proper moods for any bedroom, like peacefulness, serenity, and comforting.
Such an idea, on other words, is too lively.
Too many accessories, no matter how expensive, are considered décor overkill. For a less is more vibe, "accessories should be grouped together to create a pleasing vignette, whether it's on the cocktail table, buffet, or bookcase," says interior designer Marlaina Teich.
A soft gray or beige is the best option to make your living room’s atmosphere feel warm. The use of a medium standing lamp or a decoration lamp completes the warm look you want to achieve. You can also add a fluffy rug with the same color tone to make it more captivating.
Looking at your home from a holistic perspective—seeing how each room works in balance against the others—can help craft a welcome variety in your spaces, like this emerald-and-charcoal dining room that adds a touch of formality to an otherwise contemporary Los Angeles home.
Another factor in deciding where to put a plant is identifying what each variety's key attribution is. For instance, Weeping Figs remove toxins and increase oxygen levels, which is why they're practically made for your bedroom. And since Jade Plants are symbols for good luck, keep them in your hallway to greet people as they enter your home.
Install simple, minimalist shelving and display a few of your favorite books and objects to maintain a modern look. This Central Park apartment made use of an empty wall in the dining area by adding shelves that perfectly match the white walls.
