What to consider when selecting a mirror for your home
A mirror can be quite an attractive addition to your home. But choosing the right fit is not an easy task. Keep in mind, here at Coastal Transformations we can add decorative frames to any mirror and improve the entire look of the room/ space it is in. That said, it’s still a good idea to know how to select the right mirror from the get go. Here are a few tips to consider when selecting a mirror to ensure it's the ideal one:
Finding the Shape that works for you.
- To instantly add depth and spark interests, choose a rectangular shape.
- For a more powerful look, choose an out-of-the-ordinary shape such as an oval or starburst.
Size makes a difference.
Selecting a larger mirror will obviously have more impact. That said, many times mirrors are complements to other furnishings/ fixtures and tend to be hung above those items. Having the mirror be the full length or three-quarters of the length of that object allows it to be an attraction without necessarily being the center of attention.
Customize the mirror to fit your space.
One thing about mirrors that most people don’t think about is their frames. Many times we think we are stuck with however the original item was manufactured, etc. Custom decorative frames give you back control of the design elements in your home. Your mirrors should reflect your style. Here at Coastal Transformations we install custom decorative mirror frames for homeowners in the local area.
