Want to add something unique to your home? Then you need a 2-way mirror!

You may be wondering what a 2-way mirror is, but that’s what we’re here to help you with. Keep reading to see why a 2-way mirror will transform your home!

What are 2-way mirrors?  

You may know 2-way mirrors by other names such as a one-way mirror or a spy mirror – and you may have seen them in your favourite police drama! Quickly covering the technical stuff, they’re made of either clear glass or an acrylic sheet, specially coated on one side or containing a coated laminate. This allows light to pass through the clear sheet in a restricted fashion, making it appear as a mirrored surface. Anyway, enough of what it is – more of how it benefits!

Art & Design

If you have a more artistic flair, you can use 2-way mirrors to create a striking piece of art in your home. This is better than your average vase or small sculpture, this will be a thought-provoking piece that no one else will have – sounds incredible to us! If you want some inspiration, have a look at this great piece below!

Commercial Use

Work in fashion and want to give your customers an incredible in-store experience? 2-way mirrors are the perfect addition. Their place in the fashion industry has rapidly increased over the last few years thanks to the utilisation of state-of-the-art points of sale, meaning customers can try on anything in the store, quickly and conveniently without a dressing room.

Smart Mirrors

Gadget-lovers, this one is for you! This is the most on-trend function of 2-way mirrors because combined with the right application, the simple mirror can become a useful information point or an intriguing virtual display. Our Mirrorworld team have helped develop many futurist mirrors for our clients.

Of course, there are also the 2-way mirrors that have a more serious role too. 2-way mirrors are often used in police dramas and the real-world for observation. This can be in focus group observations, medical and clinical observation and even in everybody’s favourite TV programme – Big Brother!

The benefits of a 2-way mirror are endless, but the best way to discover this is to see it for yourself. Speak to our team about your vision and we will help you find the perfect solution by visiting: https://www.mirrorworld.co.uk/contactUs_d.html

5 Unique Ways a Mirror Can Transform a Living Area

Transform Your Living Area

Creative use of a mirror, or multiple mirrors, can transform it from its mere practical function to a breath-taking addition to your home’s décor. You can either channel the interior designer within you or leave it to the experts to provide the finished piece but there is so much you can do with mirrors in your home.

Here are some ideas to inspire you to use mirrors to their full potential:

  • Liven up your wall with acrylic mirror shape designs

Mirrors don’t have to be rectangular or round, you can have mirrors designed into practically any shape that you want. Designs such as leaf-shaped mirrors spread across a wall, or a mirror in the shape a famous landmark like The Eiffel Tower will make for a very unique edge to your living area. Take a look at the huge range of different shapes you could incorporate into your interior design.

  • Use mirror tiles as a feature

Mirror tiles are more commonly found in bathrooms but with shapes like hexagons, you could design your very own mirror mosaic or another type of pattern. You can even buy coloured mosaic mirror tiles and create your own masterpiece. A full wall mirror made out of lots of rectangles also provides a stunning effect.

  • Bring a touch of Art Deco into your home

You will find there is a good choice of Art Deco-inspired mirror designs that could add some sophisticated character to your living area. With your Art Deco mirror as your centrepiece, maybe above your fireplace, or in the middle of your main wall, you can follow the style around the room with smooth lines and geometric shapes that will transport your visitors back to the 1920s era.

  • Hang a mirror clock on the wall

Mirrors can be multipurpose and there are some beautiful mirror clocks that will catch the eye in any home. Perfect if you don’t have the space for a mirror and a clock but also a quite unique addition to your living area. You can go big, with a clock mirror that fills most of the wall or find a smaller design to fit into a small wall space that you didn’t know what to do with.

  • Wow your guests with a designer mirror

There are so many different designs of designer mirrors to match your current interior or to inspire you to design a new interior around a new mirror. Contemporary mirror grids made up of nine symmetrical framed mirrors laid out in a square look very stylish, whilst other unique designs such as frames with a silvered molten finish will add some sparkle to the room.

Hopefully, that will have given you some ideas for your mirror project but if you need any more inspirational, spend some time to browse through the huge range of designs and variations at Mirrorworld.
