Mirrors are a key object for any style of decoration in homes, hotels, shops and restaurants. We no longer expect to see them only in the bathroom but in the most unexpected places. We no longer ask for functionality only but also to decorate, create optical effects and transmit special sensations.
The decorative shapes of the mirror, its function and its potential make this object as essential as windows, doors or furniture such as tables. However, decorating with mirrors is not as simple as may seem. Sometimes, they’re placed in impractical spaces and it isn’t possible to get the most out of them. For this reason, in this article we share some ideas and tips on how to decorate interiors with mirrors.
Our 3 benefits of mirrors in decoration
Among all the benefits that we can mention of a mirror we will focus on three. First of all, its ability to generate a feeling of greater spaciousness, which is key especially in small interiors. For example, if it’s placed on the floor and slightly tilted, the ceiling will look higher.
Secondly, a mirror strategically placed close to a source of natural light will reflect it, bringing more light to the interior. Finally, its decorative role helps to strengthen the aesthetics and the style of decoration that you want to impose in a specific space in line with the other pieces of furniture.
A round design wall mirror

It will also make sense to decorate with two or three of these designs of the same size, for example if there are two sinks in the bathroom or putting them at the head of the bed. The smallest ones can also be used to make compositions on the wall with several grouped and even combined with other elements such as paintings. The mix results in a very dynamic wall.
Remember, the mirror is the most versatile when it comes to decorating round, so feel free to decontextualize it and place it in unexpected rooms, you can even take it off the wall and simply put it on any surfaces, for example, behind the sofa in the living room or on a chest drawers of wood. The result will be original and certainly eye-catching.

The hall, whether in a store, a hotel or a home, is one of the places where you can get the most out of the mirror. Surely you have in mind the typical rectangular mirror that rests on the wall, where you can see yourself before leaving home.
