Designing with Mirrors

I love to use mirrors in design, it’s a great way to reflect light (especially in dark, or small spaces) and I just think the way they brighten up a room with their metallic shine is fantastic.

The most important thing to remember when designing with mirrors, (or other reflective surfaces) is to be conscious of what will be seen in the reflection. For instance, if you have a mirrored vanity in your bathroom, you might not want to have it across from your toilet… because you’ll just see a toilet in your pretty little vanity… not so cute. Instead, take advantage of views or other things you enjoy seeing by placing the mirrors or mirrored objects accordingly, so that the reflection will be something beautiful.
