08 Sep Framed mirrors for light and style
Making your bathroom mirror work
Mirrors deliver a key feature in the design or redesign of any bathroom. When chosen and hung with intention, framed wall mirrors serve as an interesting and functional centrepiece, enhance lighting and create the illusion of space.
When selecting a new mirror for your bathroom, start with a few questions:
What size fits the space?
Mirrors deliver a lot of benefits, so you may feel an urge to go as big as you possibly can
What finish fits your design plan?
A frame finish chosen to contrast with the shower door, sink and and other bathroom hardware will add texture to the look. Whereas, a perfect match of finishes creates an elegant, spa-like sensibility.
Will one, two or three frames be better?
Particularly in smaller bathrooms, two or three mirrors may fit the space better and create a more interesting design element. You can also hang them on different walls to increase reflected light and the illusion of more space.
One large mirror draws the eye and fills a room with light. Consider hanging a smaller mirror on the wall opposite the large mirror. This helps to open up the space. For an interesting visual element, choose several small mirrors and hang them on the wall opposite the large one.
Bring it all together
The versatility of mirrors make them a way to give instant panache to a bathroom. They light up dark corners an add elegance to an area. By reflecting the movements and design elements around them, they even replace artwork. Incorporating fresh design ideas utilising bathroom mirrors enhances the appearance of large and small bathrooms. Choosing a mirror to coordinate with the style of your bathroom will add depth and dimension, creating a bright and fresh room.
