In addition to adding a decorative touch, mirrors can make your living room look bigger, brighter, and can provide a range of other benefits. However, there are a few basic things to keep in mind. If your living room is in need of an upgrade, follow the tips below and see how you can transform your space through custom mirrors.

Let the Light Shine

Mirrors can add depth and life to living rooms by reflecting movement and light. It’s all about the placement. Try installing a mirror on the wall opposite the window in your living room. This will reflect the natural light and create the appearance of a second window in the space. The mirror will allow more light to come into the room and brighten those dark corners.

Create a Softer Space

The smooth shape of round mirrors adds calmness to a room that might otherwise be filled with boxy furniture and frames. It softens a room’s hard edge and adds more warmth. In addition, if you already have geometric decor in your living room, a round mirror will balance this out.

Create a Feeling of Spaciousness

You can create a sense of spaciousness by hanging mirrors on the largest wall of the room. Several small mirrors can be grouped together or hung together as one large mirror. Regardless of how this is done, it will reflect the rest of the room and give the feeling that it continues on. 

All-in-One Mirror and Shelf

Get the deepest rectangle frame that you can in the size you want. For wooden frames, you can leave them natural or paint them in a contrasting color. Afterward, add your mirror to the inside of the frame, hang it on the wall, and decorate it. 

The Glam Factor

Find a mirror that is framed by other mirrors to add some sparkle. This frame could include a mosaic of small mirror pieces or a design that looks like mirrored jewels. For an old-school glam look, try finding an ornate frame and painting it gold.

It’s All About Layers

Rather than hanging framed pieces on the wall, a popular idea for living rooms is to lean them against the wall in groups. These groups can include framed photos and art of all sizes and can be placed on the floor, on a shelf, or on a side table.

On the Mantel

Mirrors over the fireplace aren’t a new interior design technique, but you can make a statement with them. If you want a dramatic look, choose an oversized mirror. If you can, choose a large mirror that extends to the ceiling, giving your living room the same lift and depth, but in a more modern style.
