As you begin to think about removing your holiday décor out and filling the empty spaces left behind, I want to share a little secret (and you won’t need to hire an expensive decorator to make it happen). You can start putting your home back into pre-holiday order by thinking about some of the things you want to change about the original space. Were the walls bare to start? Was it too dark? Did it feel cramped? If you can say yes to any of these questions, you will find your answer in decorative mirrors.
Decorative mirrors are frequently used to create the illusion of space, set a stylish tone and bring more light into a room. Here’s how:
First, find mirrors that “speak” to you and the feelings you want created in the room. Kirkland’s has hundreds of decorative mirrors in circles, squares, rectangles, free-standing and all shapes in between to help you find the right style. From patterned wooden outlines to ornamental metal designs overlaying the glass, our large selection of decorative mirrors gives you plenty of options for your stunning room design. Keep in mind, you don’t necessarily need to use only one mirror. Consider how a grouping of smaller mirrors might look in your space, especially if they can create a design element on a wall.
Second, determine where the mirror will be placed. Part of this also includes needing to know if you want visitors in the room to be able to use it, or if its sole purpose is for decoration. From these decisions, you can determine how high the mirror will hang, if it will be placed to reflect light from the windows or a nearby lamp, and what additional room decorations you might want reflected in the glass.
Finally, bring other elements into the room that work with the decorative mirror. Then sit back and enjoy how the room captures the attention of your visitors, thanks to the decorative mirror.
