If you are like most homeowners, you are constantly on the hunt for ways to liven up your home and add a touch of your personality. From artwork to fun throw pillows, there is a myriad of ways to introduce life and style to any room. One easy way to liven up your home that many people don’t think of is by adding a custom mirror to the walls of your home. Here are a few reasons why you should consider this option in your home decorating.
Increase the Size of Any Room
A common trick in photography or moviemaking to make a place seem larger is to use mirrors. The mirrors reflect whatever else is in the area, making it seem almost double the size. This same optical illusion can be used in your own home to create the appearance of a larger room. A custom mirror can be created to fit the exact size and shape that you need and can be placed in such a way as to add more depth to your living space.
Did you know that some ancient civilizations used mirrors to spread sunlight throughout a room? This old trick has great modern applications. If lighting up one of the rooms of your house is proving to be a difficulty, adding a custom mirror could be just the right solution. placing one across from a bright window can help to spread that light throughout the room, giving you better brightness without any added electricity costs.
More Attractive Bathrooms
You can put a mirror anywhere in the home, but you’ll always have a mirror in the bathroom. Unfortunately, most bathroom mirrors are for function only: plain, square things hiding a medicine cabinet. But since this is a place you use each day, a new custom mirror could do wonders for your morning routine. In fact, even if you live in a very old home and don’t want to (or can’t) renovate the entire bathroom, a new mirror and shower curtain could create a brand-new look for your bathroom.
If you’ve ever attended a workout class, you may have been in a room with floor to ceiling mirrors. From yoga to barre to weightlifting, working out in front of a mirror can help you have the right form and technique for whatever exercise you are doing. Instead of investing in a gym membership, a large custom mirror in your home-gym space could be just the thing you need to get the most out of your workout efforts.
