When we create or renovate the look of our home we are inclined to think that certain accessories have secondary functions in the overall impact of the decor.

Such is the case with mirrors: unfailing objects in home furnishings that, however, at first glance are thought to have the mere function of reflecting one’s image, or perhaps filling a small gap on the wall.

In fact, the mirror, if used strategically and judiciously, can be a valuable ornamental ally for any room, giving it features unthinkable at first glance.

Illuminating environments

Do we have particularly dark furniture? Does the room we are setting up have few windows or, conversely, do we wish to expand the feeling of openness? A proper mirror is the one for us.

Among the many variations, we will be able to select some larger ones to be strategically placed on the walls opposite or adjacent to the windows. The mirror, by its nature, reflects light, so placing one in a suitable spot in the room will allow much more light to develop throughout the room than would be expected simply by opening a window.

It should also be considered that in the case of contained environments, already quite congested with enough furniture, one might consider placing a multifunctional element as the container box by Kristalia, so as to combine the practicality of a everything compartment to the benefit of a very bright and elegant reflective surface.

Expanding spaces

The very principle of the mirror is to “double” the image placed before it.

This not only applies to

For us of course, but for any space on which it acts. It goes without saying that the placement of mirrors in a confined space (such as a small bathroom or hallway) can literally change the spatial perception of the room, sharply duplicating the width of the room.

In this case, one could think of a single mirror (not necessarily oversized, but always proportionate to the wall on which it is placed), or opt for a series of elements by way of a composition. An example? Cattelan’s fantastic design modules. Of course, it may be appropriate to combine the mirror with a dedicated yet versatile holder that fits smoothly into its surroundings.
