Aug 12, 2008
Mirrors are basic accessories in the decoration of any room, whether it's a hallway, a bathroom or a bedroom one can find a mirror that is sure to suit the style of the room and add to the attractiveness of the space. First of all when deciding to hang a mirror try to choose a space opposite a large source of light or a very nice aspect of the room, doing this ensures that whatever is reflected in the mirror will be pleasing to the eye and add substantially to your room. This can also add balance to a room. Wall Mirrors are the most common type of mirror and more than likely will be what you will be using to decorate your house.

Normally the first place you would think of for hanging a mirror is the bathroom. This is the one room where you definitely need a mirror. The most appropriate mirror for this room is definitely the wall mirror and should be placed behind the sink. Another good idea for the bathroom is to hang a wall mirror with variable arm opposite the sink mirror and you never have a problem looking at the back of your head again. Another tip for small bathrooms is to mount a wall mirror directly behind the bath tub, this can help give a sense of depth to an otherwise small looking room. For the bedroom you will want a full length wall mirror. Try to place the mirror somewhere where you can stand back and look at yourself from a distance. It's hard to see yourself correctly if you're standing too close up to the mirror.

The floor mirror is a mirror that starts from the floor up. Floor mirrors are an unusual and great way to add something special and creative to your home. Floor mirrors add an interesting angle to your room and provide something beautiful that will catch people's eyes. Try to choose a mirror with a frame that matches your existing decor. Floor mirrors almost always make you room to appear larger than it is and can be used to replicate another beautiful part of the room.

Examples of these types are smooth or polished according to the surface, laser, security, and rear view, small make up, pier mirrors and decorative according to its function or use. They are also categorized into bathroom, bedroom, etc according to the location.
