Interior Designer Tips

Wall mirrors are fundamental accessories for any interior design project. Because they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, you can hang mirrors in areas where space is limited. Foyers, hallways and bedrooms are excellent locations. Entrance ways are especially popular hanging spaces as you impress your visitors and set the tone for your home.

Wall mirrors are important accessories when considering interior design whether it is for your home or office. You may not realize it, but there are wall mirrors that are considered to be works of art. In fact, one of the earliest creations is the Baluga mirror which has been a  treasured piece for decades. These designs are a blend of colonial and Asian patterns. No two pieces are alike. These unique pieces will give any room an elegant, old world experience.

Starting your interior design project with the wall mirror is a simple and straightforward approach to give a room a distinctive character. If you are looking for a more contemporary feel, you can choose an over-sized, handcrafted wooden mirror that fits the space of your wall. Then you add decor that match the overall feel of your space. Now that you have an understanding of basic interior design tips let’s get started on your project.

Frames for wooden mirrors are made from many different kinds of wood. If you look for wall mirrors assembled from durable wood products they will give you a lifetime of enjoyment that often gets handed down from one generation to the next. Mirrors made from Mahogany Plantation Timbers, for example, are of extraordinary quality and classy. The dark red-brown colored wood usually has no blemishes and gives you a very nice sheen when polished. They are especially easy to maintain with minimal dusting and periodic polishing.

You have a nearly endless supply of varying styles to pick from. Wall mirrors are available in all shapes and sizes and in a variety of colors and finishes. You can even find very elegant mirrors that are sculpted with unique patterns. There are also textured wood patterns if you are looking for a mirror with a more eclectic profile. Depending upon the style of mirror you choose, they can make a small room look larger, enhance the room’s depth perception and also set the frame of mind of the room that it hangs in.
