Decorating with Mirrors | Floor Mirror (via)
When it comes to decorating with mirrors, floor mirrors are a great way to brighten up a space, and they have the easiest installation: you just lean them up against a wall. If youíre not looking to hire a glass and mirror company to do a custom installation of a wall-length mirror, you should opt for a floor mirror.
Another option that is DIY-friendly is ordering a custom-cut acrylic (glassless) mirror and using mirror mastic to install it. What makes these mirrors more DIY-friendly, is that theyíre lightweight, more shatter resistant, and go great in any room. Having a whole length of a wall, mirrored, will give the illusion that the room is twice as big. Placing a mirror across from a window is another useful decorating tip. This acts as having an additional window for added natural light.
Antiqued Mirrors (via)
When it comes to antiqued mirrors, you have two options: you can buy a vintage antique mirror, or purchase a new mirror and DIY antique it yourself. However, the latter involves staining the mirror using chemicals, so itís not for everybody.
If you want all of the benefits of mirrors, but a bit of functionality, opt for mirrored furniture like mirrored cabinets and side tables.
Sunburst Mirror DIY (via)
If youíre keen on DIY projects, then purchase a frameless mirror online, and make a sunburst mirror. This is probably one of the most popular DIY projects on the internet, because itís fun and easy and there are endless possibilities.
River Mirrors (via)
If youíre looking for a one-of-a-kind designer mirror with a natural look, there are River Mirrors from the UK. The wood framing of the mirror is designed to resemble that of a river bank with the mirror portion, being the river. What makes these mirrors special is that theyíre made with real wood, which means no two River Mirrors are alike.
