Mirror Walls, Maximizing Light & Space – Tip 4

No. 4 Mirror walls

Mirror walls don’t have to make your house look like Hugh Heffner’s bedroom (not that there’s anything wrong with that if that’s your thing); rather than going for the option of covering an entire wall of your room with solid panels of frameless mirrors, try using several medium to large mirrors with antique or art-deco frames, or multiple small mirrors to give you a wall that not only turns your room into a piece of art, but also makes the best of the size and light available as well.

You can employ this trick in a variety of ways;

Use the same colour frame and shape for all of the mirrors and vary their sizes. This will give you your wall that is a piece of art in itself without making too much of a challenge out of it. The uniformity in shapes and frames will draw the effect together nicely, maximum style, minimal effort.

You could also stick with the same coloured frames on your mirrors and vary not only their sizes, but their shapes as well. By doing this you’ll add an extra dimension to your mirror wall, just make sure you choose the right frame.  

Finally, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can use not only a variety of sizes and shapes for your mirror wall, you could use frames of different style and colour too. This will take a bit more effort, ensuring that your frames don’t clash with each other (unless that’s the exact effect you’re going for) can be a painstaking process, but if you get it right, this can indeed provide you with a truly fascinating and unique mirror wall.

Remember, whichever way you choose to do it, plan first, maybe cut some cardboard into the sizes and shapes you want and have a bit of a play with them on the wall to get the exact pattern you’re after before you buy your mirrors – otherwise they could be an expensive mistake.

Once you’ve got the plan laid out, order your mirrors and away you go. Creating a bespoke mirror wall in this style can be a really stunning way of giving your room the light and space it deserves.
