The art of mirror decoration
The decoration with mirrors is an art, actually. For many the use of a mirror is still limited to being able to see our faces while we dress in the bathroom. Or to have a reference point where we can look before leaving home to check that we are well dressed.
But honestly they make for excellent decorating ideas
The possibilities of decoration with mirrors go beyond that. Since time immemorial, mirrors have been cultural elements. Sometimes even the protagonists of great stories that we all remember, such as snow-white and its ever-gentle “Mirror, Mirror”. If culture sees them as a powerful element, why not us?
The latest trends in decoration show that decorating walls with mirrors is a practical necessity. That way we can exploit all the characteristics of a house to the maximum, through the strategic placement of mirrors in one place or another.
However, everything will depend on the size, style, colour, shape, natural light of the room. And also the function that the mirror really has to play in that space. Sometimes they are simply there to make the place bigger and others to multiply the sensation of light. Yet, others are only mirrors to look at, but full of style and in harmony with us and our house.
For all this, below we will list ten key ideas with which you can transform your home with the simple placement of one or several mirrors. You want your home to be special and each corner to have its own voice? Take notes then!
Mirrors create a sense of space, absorb the image and light of a space and make it bounce. Thus, providing a double sensation in both brightness and depth. You could say that strategically placing a mirror in a place in the dining room would be like adding windows.
This is possible if we place the mirror facing one of the windows with more light and have a very wide view of the outside. In this way, the exterior will be inside our house, as well as all its light, converting a simple dining room in a beautiful viewpoint that will give us a pleasant feeling of well-being and spaciousness.
It is important to remember that one of the keys to the balance of the energy of a home is in its decoration. Specifically in the strategy of elements that distribute space and light. Therefore, by decorating with mirrors we will contribute to the harmony of the home and our interior.
Large scale wall mirror: sometimes more is more
Surely you’ve always been told that less is more, right? Well, although this statement is entirely correct, if we want decorating walls with mirrors in a minimalist way, there are times when excess may also bring us more benefits. We explained it to you.
Imagine your living room. Surely it will have a table, some windows, furniture, lamps and some other door. Well, now imagine that one of the walls, preferably the one that is taller, wider and focused towards some window or point of light, is all full of mirrors. The feeling of space will multiply! Not to mention the elegance and distinction that will bring all these mirrors covering an entire wall.
Also, if your dining room was small, the mirror mural will duplicate that space, extending the floor and ceiling. Although each house is different, therefore each room will have a different result when applying this wonderful decorative trick.
Asymmetry in decorating walls with mirrors
You like puzzles? Imagine seeing your room divided into 20 parts or your own reflection? This is possible using a framed mirror.

Its function is purely decorative, to bring dynamism and fun to the stay. They are often used strategically in hallways or walls that reflect a wide area. ANd just like that the puzzle effect is even greater.
