Since that time when the first wall mirrors were designed, these units have come into each home. Besides its main function: showing our reflection, mirrors can dramatically change the look of our interiors. Mirrors can solve the problem of lack of lighting in the room. Reflecting, natural light spreads throughout the room, making it lighter.
Regardless of the size of the mirrors, your main aim is not find their right location in space. A mirror placed on the wall which is perpendicular to the window, will provide a stunning effect of a space lit with the sunlight. Do not hang a mirror opposite the window: Feng Shui does not recommend it, and you won’t get the right lighting of the room. Small-sized rooms can become visually much more spacious is you hang there large wall mirrors.
When the room is narrow, hung two large mirrors along one of the long walls, you will get the effect of the expansion of space. If you do not have enough sources of illumination, you can place the mirror so that it will reflect light sources – natural light coming through windows or lamps.
Some home owners make a mistake lighting the mirror itself, but it is impossible to get the effect of a light space using this method. Mirrors can make our ceilings look higher. Designers know the following method: if you hang a mirror over the sofa vertically, it will “raise” low ceilings. Another place for it is mounting the mirror over the fireplace or the chest: it will accentuate the room design.
