Why your living room needs a mirror for impact

There are some people who think the primary function of mirrors is nothing more than to provide an opportunity to check their hair or make-up, but of course there is so much more to them than that. A carefully chosen, thoughtfully positioned and beautifully created reclaimed wood mirror can offer a stunning addition to any room design, so always be sure to select the right one for your needs.

One of the nicest things about mirrors is they can be placed almost anywhere in the room, and they will always enhance the overall look. It’s maybe best to avoid placing them on a wall beside windows, but apart from that you have free rein to go with your heart. Whether you go for a classic wall variety such as the Lily Wall Mirror or perhaps the free-standing Amalfi Mirror is of course entirely up to you.

Mirrors placed above the fireplace in a living room will always provide a focal point for all, and will add a touch of class to any contemporary living room furniture collection. In larger rooms, two mirrors will enhance the overall look, and will add to the sense of space. The important thing, as always, is to add your own touch to the room, so make it all as individual as you want.

Use your imagination, use your style and use your passion!

There’s nothing wrong with a room that has been laid out along familiar, classic lines, of course, but there’s also nothing wrong with creating a look that chooses mis-matching as a theme, if it can be described as that! With so many different styles of mirror on the market, finding one to match your desires is perhaps easier now than it has ever been.

A classic Chesterfield black sofa, or perhaps a brown leather sofa with matching armchairs, will provide a traditional look, but the rest of the room doesn’t have to reflect this if you’d rather add something a little more quirky. The wonderfully different Golden Pebbles Wall Mirror is attractive, practical and beautiful, and will augment any style of room.

As with all items of furniture for living room locations, the mirror can make a great deal of impact, depending of course on the style and the placement. If you’re looking to make the room as light as possible, place the wall or free-standing mirror in an area which will reflect the light from windows, and always be ready to try various locations before making a final decision.
