Dining room mirror décor has taken an upswing in popularity in the last 5 years, with wall mirrors making a huge splash in many modern designs. Don’t limit yourself to the dining room though, we’ve seen this trend extend through the entire home.
Mirror Decoration 101
We shopped through the latest Pinterest boards and interior design magazines to find our favorite design trends using mirrors. From dining room mirror décor, the entry way or reading room, we’ve got a few ideas to help you decorate with mirrors.
Long gone are the days where mirrors are just used to see our faces and wardrobe choices before leaving the house. A tastefully selected mirror is a great addition to many decorating ideas.
With mirrors playing such a huge role in many cultures, along with sharing a fun history of myths and superstitions, we are glad to see them escape the bathrooms and dressing areas of the home.
When decorating with mirrors, things like; size, style, color, the natural light of the room, and the function of the mirror, all need to be considered.
Your dining room could be your final stop on your way out the door, and a mirror would give you a last chance to check your appearance. You might also use a mirror to multiply the natural light hitting a room, or simply as a style piece.
Frame Your Mirror
Here at MirrorChic, we advertise mostly for bathroom mirrors, but our frames look great on any mirror that is mounted flush to the wall!
With over 60 different styles to choose from, it is really easy to match the finish of the room as well. Our Wood Tone frames will help you match your furniture, and many of our other style and color combinations will make a mirror really stand out in a room!
Lastly, if you cannot find a color that works for you, we have a few paint-able frames that with a little elbow grease and a can of spray paint can match ANY color interior! Read this guide for a detailed run down on how to correctly paint your mirror frame!
We even have a beautiful, stain-able, American Red Oak frame, that can easily match those hard to match custom cabinets.
Floor to Ceiling Mirrors
“Less is more” definitely does not apply to this design concept.
Your living room, or dining room, almost always will have some combination of windows, furniture, lamps, and usually a table. All of this is standard, it is common, it does not draw the eye. Adding a few floor to ceiling mirrors, now that draws the eye!
Not only does a wall of floor to ceiling mirrors add distinction to any room, but you’ll be amazed at how much bigger and well-lit a room will feel with this addition.
If you want a functional mirror, this might not be the option for you, but if you simply want a stylish addition to a room, a asymmetrical designed set of mirrors is a great décor addition to a bedroom, hallway, dining room, or living room.
As we said, this style of décor is purely decorative, as it is hard to see a clear picture of yourself in 5-20 individual pieces of glass, but the puzzle like effect of hanging mirrors this way is powerful.
Maybe the best part, but no two designs will look the same. Wall decorations using patterned mirrors provide you with an endless variety of options limited only by your own imagination.
Mirrors as Part of a Gallery
Every time we see a wall decorated with mirrors as part of a gallery of photos, we think of Grandma’s house. She had a variety of paintings and photos from the beach. Assorted throughout this collage were nick knacks and memorabilia from vacations long gone and, in the center, a framed oval mirror that completed the space.
This is a great idea because it can also be used in combination with the framed mirror option from above. A framed mirror, along with memorable and meaningful items, can become a truly special location in your home!
Dining room mirror décor has been gaining popularity for a while now, but more and more we are seeing asymmetrical designs in hallways and floor to ceiling mirrors that give amazing light to featured walls in living rooms.
After reading through the newest and best ideas for adding mirrors to your living or dining room décor, the question is, how will you use decorative mirrors in your home?!
