When you are spending money on your home’s interior, there are various aspects that might initially catch your attention. For example, you might feel that the chipped paint on your walls could do with fixing. Whilst this is all well-and-good, it does not make much of a statement – the same cannot be said for mirrors. These are excellent, as they offer a focal point to your wall. Below, you can find Fitted Mirrors’ take on the rooms that are best-suited to mirrors; we hope that these suggestions open your eyes to the endless possibilities in front of you.
This goes without saying, but we feel like it is our duty to reinforce the fact that no bathroom is complete until there is a mirror hung on the wall. This is, in some respects, the crowning glory – first-and-foremost, it offers you the chance to check your appearance before leaving the house. More importantly, however, it brightens up a room that is more-often than not a little gloomy. If you do not have a window in your bathroom, this is an accessory that will change your life for the better.
Although this is something of a left-field shout, you would be amazed at the number of homeowners that are starting to cotton-on to the fact that mirrors make for incredible inclusions within the kitchen. As an example, imagine if you had a floor-to-ceiling mirror hanging directly opposite your dinner table. When you and the rest of your family are sitting together in the evening, you don’t have to concern yourself with the possibility of not being able to see everyone – the mirror takes care of this particular issue with remarkable ease.
First impressions are everything; when you welcome guests into your home, they will immediately be judging you on your sense of taste. This means that within your hallway, you need to make a concerted effort to ensure that everything is perfect. To make this a reality, we recommend that you spend some money on a lavish, ornate mirror. Preferably, this will stretch across the wall, and will be opposite either intricate wallpaper or family portraits. After hanging this mirror, we promise that you won’t look back on your previous decor.
Despite being the last suggestion to feature on this list, it would be unwise for you to completely disregard the thought of placing a mirror in your living room. In an ideal world, this brand-new purchase will sit directly above your fireplace. During the winter, the combination of a roaring fire and a mirror will make the room both look and feel warm – this is an effect that is notoriously difficult to achieve. Before long, this will become your favourite place within your property, and the mirror has a large part to play in this.
To some of you, it will not come as news that there are a number of locations within your home that are suitable for high-quality mirrors. What might have brought you here, in actual fact, was the realisation that one of your favourite pieces has started to decline from a quality perspective. The knock-on effect of this is that you are now in the market for a mirror replacement; if this is the case, you have come to the right place.
