Creating Fascinating Interior Spaces with Wall Mirrors

Try not to think about your gym as the only residential space that can display a mirror wall – indulge in the luxury of creating visually larger, brighter spaces in your home by using this wonderful way of spreading natural light in darker corners while preserving much of the light’s original quality. Unlike electric lights or candle light, mirrors help direct sunlight throughout the space during the day, while at night it becomes an accomplice to any source of light present nearby.

Use mirrors to cover up visible storage spaces – besides hiding closet doors, the mirrors offer an unequaled source of light and an ally when it comes to choosing the details. Your kitchen can boast dazzling mirrored tiles or maybe the bathroom needs to look larger – choose the best spot in your home to display these fantastic reality checkers.

Also the better you take care of your home the longer its beauty will last.

Dining with guests and yourself

Mirror wall design can benefit many areas of the home – the dining room, living space, bedroom bar, hallway or bathroom can each become subject to an amazing modification. A stunning dining room can be the best place to try the mirror wall look, especially if the ceiling is that of a gable roof. Or maybe the small space near the staircase can be transformed into a dining space – then a mirror wall would visually double the space, creating a background for family dinners.

Playful mirrors for the social spaces

Create an inviting living room by opening up the visual depth of the walls can be done in a creative burst – use geometry and other materials to integrate the chosen design in the living space. Alternating wood and mirror slabs can create a softer mirroring effect, perfect to create an edgy style. On the other hand, oversized mirror tiles can act as a stylish background for your classy fireplace. A mirror wall behind the fireplace would add glamor to this part of the house, subtly spreading the warm glow of the fire light.

The bedroom’s chance to a love story

Mirroring in itself, the master bedroom can duplicate the romantic feeling of the space anytime it needs to. Each morning, a rested you will face yourself in the chosen mindset for that day – eager to get the day started early or maybe thinking about meeting friends for brunch. Depending on the position of the window and/or other architectural elements, you can place the mirror wall at the head of the bed or on its side – either way, the space will double and lit up like in a fairytale.

Visually spacious storage spaces and hallways

Storage spaces and hallways can become more spacious and attractive with the help of large mirrors. Hiding storage doors behind mirrors creates a carefully hidden space – imagine your hallway larger, brighter and more appealing. Whether you choose floor to ceiling mirrors or smaller versions, you will be glad you have chosen mirrors as design elements. A crowded hallway can be enlarged by the use of mirrors – customized wood frames covering the mirrors can define that specific style you were looking for.
