You can see for hours the photos displaying mirrors in a foreign living room and "try on" them for their. To do this is useful and necessary. It is difficult to find the ideal option that will completely display your expectations and presentations. However, it is easy to find a number of ideas that you want to realize.
When buying goods, pay attention to the fact that the reflective surface should be perfectly flat. Silver coating is more durable and better in comparison with aluminum.
In the design of any living room using mirrors, it is necessary to take into account the presence of a significant effect of a visual increase in space, which is achieved if: make one wall accent, t.e. place a mirror canvas in the entire wall, Place a mirror opposite the window or between the windows, install a high and narrow mirror, which will visually “raise” the ceiling, place two mirrors at right angles, install a mirror panel in a niche.
The traditional way of placing a large mirror is in the living room above the sofa or fireplace. In this case, the role of the fireplace may well play a chest of drawers. With this placement, the mirror becomes a visual center of the room, a large decorative element.
Therefore, it is necessary to pay close attention to the issue of choosing its form and framing. As a rule, they choose a rectangular shape, less often - oval. For framing, a catchy and massive baguette is used, provided it is a good combination with other interior items.
Instead of one large one - you can place several smaller ones that have different shapes and sizes. Moreover, they can be alternated with other decor items, such as paintings, posters, photos and ceramics products.
As a rule, all objects in the created composition have the same framing. It is important that the length of a large mirror or the total length of the decorative composition is slightly less than the length of the sofa or chest of drawers over which they are placed.
In order to avoid the effect of disorientation in space, two large mirrors do not place each other. A good option is to place them at right angles to each other, which will visually make the room much more spacious.
The most impressive effect is achieved when the reflective surface is located over the entire height of the room from the floor to the ceiling.
As a rule, this option finds use in small rooms, while you should pay due attention to the framing. It is made narrow and discreet. And vice versa, in the case of using this option in large rooms, framing can be wide and massive.
In the living room, placing a mirror on the wall opposite the window, you can get a double effect: the room will become much lighter and the illusion of the presence of another window will arise.
This placement option is widely used in decorating country houses. It is especially good if the view opening from the window is the pride of the owners of the house.
Placement between the windows.And if there are two or three windows in the living room? In this case, the option of placing a mirror between them deserves attention. As a result of an optical illusion, the room will expand significantly.
If the room in the daytime is well lit by natural light, then a large number of reflective surfaces should not be placed in it. It can turn into the present "behind the grinder". A feeling of cold will appear - a feeling of comfort and comfort will disappear.
Do not place too much mirror in a small living room. The large reflective surface will focus on itself.
Against her background, all other objects will seem visually smaller, including the room itself. Instead of the effect of expanding space, the opposite effect can be obtained.
An interesting option for using a mirror in the interior of a spacious living room: directly on top of a mirror canvas with a large area, a mirror of a smaller area framed in a spectacular, massive frame is placed.
This option can be implemented using an artificially aged or tinted surface, which will bring a note of mystery and mystery to the interior.
Fragmented mirror - many small fragments reflecting the light located at a short distance from each other. As a rule, they are united by one frame. Such compositions are not used as a surface that gives the correct display.
They are in demand exclusively as bright objects intended for stylish decor. When creating the composition, artificially aged or tinted fragments can be used, emphasizing its unusual.
The option of "doubling" of the beloved corner or the pleasant eyes of decor items located in the room is worthy of attention.
Place the mirror opposite them - the number of favorite paintings, vases and even magazine tables will double. This technique is most in demand when there are few furniture and decor items in the room.
If any light source is reflected in the mirror surface, then the light flow is scattered. In this case, the effect of the presence in the premises of an additional light source is created.
If the lower part of individual furniture items is faced with mirror panels, then an optical effect of lightness and “airiness” arises. Moreover, such furniture keeps the secrets of the owners no worse than wooden.
If the room has an irregular shape, then one of the methods for eliminating the deficiency is the installation of a mirror cabinet. However, the wrong form may be the dignity of the room. This is a matter of taste and personal preferences.
To illuminate the mirror, light sources are placed on its sides or make a hidden backlight behind it. In case of illumination directly from above or below, display is distorted.
Such a “crooked” display will sooner or later become a source of discontent and irritation of the owners and guests of the house. Decorating the living room, bring to life not only designer “tips”, but also your own ideas and ideas.
This is your living room. This is your little world. Only you can make it cozy, comfortable, stylish or unusual. Depending on your own preferences and concepts about convenience and beauty.
