How to make your Mirror last 3 times as long in a Bathroom.

Have you ever found that after relaxing in the bath or shower you walk over to mirror and find it steamed up? The only way to see through the mirror is to wipe it clean and risk leaving streaks on the mirror.   It is often the little things in life that can make such a difference. Now using modern technology, you can finally have a mist free mirror in your bath or shower room using our Clearview Demister pads in conjunction with your Mirror.

Ideal for bathrooms, especially those with poor ventilation.   Our Clearview Demister is IP54 rated and easily fixes to the to the rear of the mirror by removing the adhesive paper and using it’s self-bonding surface to attach to the rear of your mirror in your desired position. They are low voltage and use from as little as 8 watts or 0.008kw per hour.  Easy to install for any qualified electrician and can be fitted to work in conjunction with your existing lighting or with a thermostat if you so required.

With a simple to install Clearview mirror de-misting pad you no longer have to wait for the mist to clear before shaving, drying your hair or putting on your make-up.

                

One of the many benefits of using a Clearview mirror pad is that the rear of the mirror is also protected from moisture in the bathroom, which means the lifetime of your mirror Clearview covered area is 3 times longer than the average mirror without a Clearview demister pad.  They also can offer better safety performance than mirrors without safety backing because if the mirror was to ever get damaged and break it is more likely to stay fixed to the Clearview pad than fall off and can be fitted with both foil backing and safety backing if required.

We can offer these pads in four shapes of Rectangle, Square, Round and Oval and in multiple sizes.

Say Goodbye to Dark Rooms and Hallways

We are not all fortunate to have lots of natural light to pour into our homes in every direction.  Many people have that one area or room in their home that is desperate to be illuminated and pulled out of the shadows.  We certainly would not want the expense, the hassle or the mess of having new lighting installed.   So, what is the answer?  The simple fix is a mirror, which provides an instant solution to bouncing light around the room as well as making the room look amazing.

Here is a selection of Mirrors that not only look great but will brighten that darkened space whilst adding Panache and refinement.

Contemporary Round Mirrors

Simple and stylish these exquisite Round mirrors come in three colours of Black, Gold and White in a standard size of 800mm Diametre.   The frame has been designed to be minimal modern but eye catching and creates a sense of theatre in the room with a mirror large enough to enhance the space whilst creating the illumination so desperately needed.  These mirrors are also available in any bespoke size so can be adjusted in size to fit your room perfectly.                                                   

Best things come in Multiples

The use of multiple mirrors is bound to make a statement wherever they are placed.  From traditional to contemporary, matching or mixed.  Carefully chosen sets can create a real wow factor and lift a room.

 

We have chosen three sets, the first is a triple set of vertically rectangular mirrors in a simple traditional gold frame and are perfect for adding depth and light to hallways or feature wall.   Their classic design give essence to of elegance and glamour to a room.

 

 

The elegant set of 4 mirrors are perfect for creating a focal point in a living room or family area.   Whilst helping  create the illusion of a larger space. The subtle edging detail adds character to the design and will help finish your living space off perfectly.

 

 

Our contemporary pill shaped mirrors are perfect in pairs and available in Black, white or all mirror.   Designed to be very stylish and modern with a hint of retro and perfect for small spaces, whilst stilling looking great in any room.  The simplicity of this mirror is more suited to modern interiors.

It’s all in the curve

Based on a 1950’s Milan design, this curvaceous sleek and understated, this beautiful and stylish mirror adopts distinct flowing curved corners and metal frame in Gold.

Designed as a leaner, this mirror is a perfect way to add personal style, warmth and the illusion of light and space to your home.  Whilst you often see mirrors of this size in substantial frames, this slim gold frame delicately wraps around the mirror almost revealing a more modern persona.

 

 

 

 

Builders Secret Use of Mirrors in Show Homes Part 4

Onwards into the bedrooms and mirrors continue to be used, whether it is in the small box room with full length mirror disguised as a ballet, horse or other similarly themed mirror specifically placed to make the room feel much larger than it is.  Whilst reflecting all the carefully placed products that subtly remind you that this is a family home and could easily accommodate your family.  For those without a family you will normally always find one room set as office/study reminding you of the multi-use these rooms can have.

Finally, nearing the end of tour of the show home you enter the bathroom normally filled with mirrors galore, mainly because these can all be purchased as add-ons.  So, expect to see mirrors above the sink, in showers, over baths and even either side of a window.

For those show homes that have had a sink fitted immediately below a window, the unpractical location and lack of front facing mirror is cleverly hidden by the dis-tractor mirror being the free-standing shaving/make up mirror placed purposely in front of the window.  There is also an opportunity to impress the parents and wow the children using two-way mirror that can be a mirror and tv and display screen and show how much better this modern home is to it’s older counterparts.

In addition to the statement mirror, it is quite common to find other mirrors that are specifically placed to either shine light in a darkened corner or take your gaze of a small window.  In some cases, the builder may also mirror an entire wall adding some clever font to it’s surface, used mainly to double the size of a space that feels ever so small.  The mirrors in the living area are called influencers and are used as one of many incentives throughout the show home, each trying to find what the right stimuli is, that each consumer needs to purchase. So always expect to see great decoration, furniture and accessories.

Walking through to the kitchen/family room you will often find this room dressed to it’s best to include all the extras that builders want to charge extra for, including granite worktops, upstands, integrated appliances, coloured splash backsplash and even wine coolers.   This is one of the main rooms builders will make their most potential profit in add ons after the house value itself.   Expect to see large mirrors, however they are not there to make the room look larger but to reflect and showcase all these wonderful extras that can give you your dream kitchen.

Take a step upstairs and the flow of mirrors continues to follow you, used here to make every step feel light and airy.

As you step into entrance of a show home you will find your first introduction to the power of consumer psychology.   Whilst some designers and dressers still use plain white walls and cream carpets, this is slowly being replaced by gloss large tiled floors and wall papered walls.   One significant change is rather than hanging a slim simple framed mirror they install either a very large Mirror or multiple mirrors onto the wall. Remember this is your first impression of a home and as such can influence your overall decision on whether to purchase a house or not.

Therefore, the builder needs to create that positive experience.  Whilst logic may tell you that you can’t use a large mirror or multiple mirrors in small spaces such as hallway the truth is quite the opposite.  Remember Mirrors reflect their surroundings so by using a either a large mirror or multiple mirrors with slim frames you can make a space look twice the size whilst brightening the surrounding area and creating the wow factor thereby giving you your first positive experience.

Walk into the living room and this is where you will always find the show stopper.  This room has been designed to appeal to the widest section of the population in the show homes locality as well as appearing aspirational in it’s design.  Both interior Designers and House Dressers know that mirrors are alluring.

Just looking at mirror can cause you to straighten up, adjust yourself or tilt your head and can help you to feel gorgeous.  Have you ever sat in a restaurant facing your partner whose back is to a mirror and as you talk to your partner find yourself glancing ever so slightly into the mirror making sure they won’t notice and with each glance find yourself feeling more and more confident.

A stunning mirror in the living areas can add style to the room and yet manages to make them feel homelier too.  They widen your view of the room and reflect all those purposely chosen pieces to draw you into a feeling of wanting.

Builders Secret Use of Mirrors in Show Homes

This week we are going to tell use some of the secrets behind why new build showrooms are dressed the way they are.

Have you ever wondered why every show home you visit are filled with mirrors galore in every style, shape and size?   The obvious explanation by many, is it will help create more space and light in the house and as such help sell the home.  Whilst this is a good point there are many other reasons as to why builders now use mirrors in every room and today we are going to reveal all.

Most builders nowadays employ the services of either an interior designer or a house dresser as they understand a well-presented show home draws the potential customer in and helps them visualise not just a house but a lifestyle.

It is a well-known by Consumer Psychologist that people want comfort, fulfilment, contentment and security in their lives, and they get this through their relationships, friends, family and the purchases they make.  By creating a positive experience, consumers form an opinion that the builder is trustworthy.  By dressing the show home, it helps reinforce the four needs a consumer desire.  By creating an aspirational need, they can form an emotional connection with the show home and the seller.   is not just selling the house but the potential lifestyle that goes with it.

How do builders know all this?  Well this comes from the results of years of consumer psychology research, this helps builder, designers and house dressers present their homes and additional products in a more appealing light, which may make consumers more likely to part with their hard-earned cash.  This isn’t just the way a room is dressed it can be the furniture used, and the small details like the signs, the accessories and the home builders’ own advertising.

If you notice in most show homes the kitchen will have either a granite or quartz worktops.  These are rarely ever included in the standard specification and tend to be expensive, however by showing them as part of the lifestyle they are increasing the likelihood that the consumer will also purchase the upgraded worktop.

Tomorrow, we will guide you through the show home and reveal some of the secrets.

We are sweet on peach

Just recently we have been seriously gushing about blush pink and how it’s the hottest trend amongst greenery and houseplants in home décor at the moment… but we’ve just been thrown a curve ball in the shade of peach.

We’re reading that peach is the new pink, that peach is having a real moment right now and peach is simply the way forward in interior decoration. We are feeling swayed, despite our loyalty to the colour pink with our new layered acrylic circle mirror.

Our questions is, if you are going to embrace peach, how should you do it?

There are several ways according to bloggers like Swoonworthy and Flat 15.  Swoonworthy pairs it with warm, rusty colours of the spring/summer season like terracotta. While Flat 15 blogger, Gabriella Palumbo, teams peach shades with tan and cream colours.

We took to the board and experimented with which of our tan or rusty mirrors really match with peach-y shades and items.

We found our large rococo ornate gold framed mirror with bevelled glass sat perfectly on a peach painted wall surrounded by vintage style cream and deep rusty coloured items.

For a lighter look, we loved matching peach colours with our traditional aged white framed mirror with bevelled glass.. it’s a more summery way of using this colour, especially with the stunning peach pink Art Deco sofa we found.
