December 17, 2012

The rooms of the small dimensions may be a little bright, uncomfortable and very limiting. But they can look big, bright and spacious if you put mirrors in some particular locations. In this way,, they reflect the natural and artificial light, offering the illusion of depth. The mirrors can be strong and big, but the mirrors can easily be broken, so make sure that you have a home insurance to cover eventually damages.

Walls

Take the most of natural light entering the room by placing a mirror on the wall opposite the window. The mirror will reflect the sunlight into the room. But if the window is large compared to the size of the room, a mirror on the opposite wall can create glare. In this case, it is better to hang the mirror on the wall perpendicular to the window. The effect is the same if you use a large mirror or a number of small mirrors nearby placed.

If you have a small dining room, the bedroom or bathroom, you can cover an entire wall of mirrors or mirror tiles. From floor to ceiling mirrors can be found in a bedroom or on closet or cover the doors, if it covers the entire wall is too expensive. A cheaper option in a dining room is to cover the top half of a wall with a mirror or mirror tiles and place the dining table next to it. This trick is often used in small cafes and restaurants.

If there is space between the wall and the window frame or between the inner walls, the mirrors can be hung on both sides of the walls and on both sides you can place the applique lamps reflect the mirrors. This will give the impression of two additional windows. However, you should be careful not to overdo the effect. Do not hang mirrors on both walls.

Have a mirror above a fireplace is a classic trick to give the illusion of space. The light reflected in the mirror balances the dark inside the fireplace, but also reflects the light of the flames.

The mirrors on the ceiling are not accepted by everyone, some people find that the mirror from the ceiling has an intimidating tone and worsen the environment. The mirror is not a good idea in kitchens and bathrooms, with time labels may come off with the vapors and the heat that is generated in these two spaces.

Surfaces

The mirrors can also be positioned on the surfaces, on tables, on chimneys, although on some surfaces may not seem a good solution, and can be too exaggerated in a space or surface, so it may be preferred that the mirror is not placed over the entire surface of the table , but only on the final part of it, on small surfaces, such as beliefs or drawers.
The mirrors which are located inside the cabinets, in the libraries can give a small feeling of space, but always limited, and will always be best traits of an area illuminated from one side.

We were particularly impressed with how well is furnished one house in South Carolina. Is a house on the beach, which simplifies and highlights the principles that we are dealing with and that we appreciate. The house as a whole is eclectic and very original, focuses on staff. Is made on the basis of many different styles and different eras together, that gives it a touch of freshness.

4) An ambient that is decorated can be more interesting if you add pieces from different periods.

The furnishings seem more dynamic and modern if you combine it with pieces from other periods.. In the picture above, a shag carpet live comfortably with an antique clock. At the bottom, the transparent chairs by Philippe Starck are above fashion when combined with a rustic table. So we think that this could be a great tip if you want to have well decorated and unique interiors.

5) It’s better to have an own idea

It’s great ig you have an idea that makes sense in its generality and complexity, it is best not to follow fads and fashions or even better to know them and try to sort out their fashion and style, creating an interior design that brings with it the idea of ​​his own trend.

6) The art will mainly be a part of your home

Investing in art will give the interior a personality of those who live in and the most original style. It will increase by far the trend of the moment. Make sure that is your passion for art to dictate the choices of furniture.

During this period, it can be too easy to fall into the trap of the trend. But having time and devoting time to furnishings, will help you to analyze your own choices while remaining faithful to your own personality. Personal style will be able to stand the test of time and fashion.
