The mirror is one of the most important decorative and functional items that you cannot do without if you are redesigning your home or just giving a room a makeover. The popularity of the mirror has a lot to do with its versatility. It can be used as a functional item when we need to clean our teeth or fix our hair. But it also plays an important and influential role in making a living space look more elegant and stylish. Its popularity can be clearly seen in the multitude of traditional and contemporary wall mirrors that are available to buy today.
When choosing a mirror for any room you need to a take few factors into consideration in order to select the perfect choice. The style of mirror is very important as you want it to compliment and enrich the room. Therefore, if you have a modern style bathroom that combines the warm and cold surfaces of wood, metal and glass then, a frameless style contemporary bath mirror would complete the look. A popular place to put this would be above the sink vanity. There are also mirror products that have concealed lights underneath the surface of the glass which provides subdued and atmospheric lighting.
The shape of mirror should also compliment the shape of the room. For a long narrow room a horizontal rectangle mirror would accentuate the shape and dimensions of the room. The hallway which is usually dark would benefit by having a long narrow mirror or a combination of mirrors to create a mosaic effect. This will not only create an artistic piece it is also functional and brightens up an area that usually lacks natural light. When buying your mirror give some thought to the purpose that you will use it, where you will hang it, whether it requires a frame or not and how much money you are willing to spend on it.
