In addition to functioning as a complementary element to the dressing table which is generally placed in a frame or hung, now a mirror can also function as a home interior element. Mirror as home interior element is often used to make a room look more spacious. You can do it by installing a large mirror on the wall. For instance, you can install a large mirror which stretches from the floor to the ceiling.
In order to make the mirror look nice and function optimally, you need to consider the following things:
The initial design
The first thing you need to consider is the initial design because it will be very influential on the installation technique and type of mirror. You also need to determine the position of the mirror, whether it will be placed on the wall fully or just part of it. You may also place a mirror on the door so that the room look more spacious. You cannot put furniture carelessly because it may violate your goal in making the house look larger. Place the furniture next to the mirror on the wall.
Accurate room measurement
You need to take an accurate measurement to the room. Measure the area of the wall that will be installed with mirror. This measurement will also be used as your guide when you order or choose the mirror.
The use of the right mirror
There are two types of mirror that you can choose and use as a home interior. The first type is regular mirror with a perfect reflection power. It is suitable for you who want the room to look more spacious. Then the second type is bronze mirror. This type of mirror is used to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and elegant. Mirror with bronze metal decoration is usually combined with warm lighting.
Utilization of mirror thickness
The thickness of the mirror affects the design itself. Mirrors without frames generally have a thickness of about 5 mm. It is commonly used as an interior that is placed in a wider field. Avoid choosing a mirror with a thickness of less than 5 mm as it will only result in shadows that are distorting. But if you want to apply a mirror with a frame, you can choose the one with a thickness of 3 mm.
