I’m also analysing the function of the mirror in interior layout. Within the following article, the mirror is viewed as something practical. There is also clearly a decorative function into the mirror. But sometimes these points may be forgotten.
The mirror is function:
Suppose there’s a little room e.g. a small-sized bathroom. In this bathroom, the mirror is clearly practical. It is used by the guy for shaving for example, to wash teeth. But when a bit is so clearly functional as the mirror, then there are strategies to make the mirror more decorative. I’m mentioning here that somehow, it’s easier to make something so practical as the mirror in this bathroom setting into something cosmetic. It is possible to aim to have a mirror with a portion of ornamentation or you could choose to have a certain type of glass to your mirror.
But when a mirror is so obviously practical, it is possible to add mirrors that are more cosmetic in aim. You can have for example, mirrors in the foot level. You can have mirrors that just demonstrate the stomach level.
In the living room, a lot of instances the mirror is place over the fireplace and if you consider this, there seems to be something cosmetic about this. It is decorative in the feeling that the mirror seems to be the major decoration. It is a fundamental piece of decorative furniture and even though its function is obvious, decoration seems to be the primary intent. If the major reason is cosmetic, then it is possible to increase the interior by employing other mirrors at a more practical setting and showing up the decorative aim of the central mirror over the fireplace. Again in this living room setting, it is possible to display up the performance and decorativeness of the mirror object by adding mirrors in foot flat along one of the walls.
Another interior design idea is to set a folding mirror at the corner. . A sort of triptych of mirrors that fold inwards… Another idea is to have a mirror on one wall continuing into the additional walls; Different effects may be used- e.g. two long rectangular mirrors of equal dimensions in the corners of every wall…or other the mirrors do not have to be the same size in any way. The mirror afterward is decoration and function. Think about the mirror as distance as something which creates distance.
This is a well-known purpose of a mirror. When you’ve got a large space e.g. a hall it is possible to use mirrors in various ways to produce more space and you’ll be able to aim for this impact in small spaces like an ordinary living room. But since you already have a huge space in a gathering hall or a large retail area by way of example, how should mirrors be used? Then the mirror may be utilised in such ways as to create the interior. This is sometimes achieved when there are mirrors combined a whole wall. There may be continuous mirrors along a wall or just long vertical or horizontal rectangles of mirrors. You may take a mirror, then background then a mirror again. If the room is square, the corners of the room should have some layout element. The corners of these rooms are where the partitions ‘overlap’ and interior design effects may be used to highlight this area. The mirrors highlight in some way the fundamental space but the side corners may also be emphasized through objects e.g. lampshades…
The mirror afterward is distance…and it’s function. . Along with a great interior design idea is to examine the mirror at a living room. If the mirror is all over the fireplace, then ask why it’s there. Is it for function or decoration or another reason or probably a mixture of all three. In a living room, you may be unwittingly using the mirror as a fundamental decorative object but you aren’t bringing out the complete effect. This may be because of the mirror itself or general bad interior layout planning to your room. In interior design, the purpose of the room is a significant concept. The question of having a certain purpose to your room arises when you’re looking at your room and its distance. The mirror needs to have a specific purpose and this function could be drawn out through how in which the mirror or mirrors unifies with the colour tones in the room in addition to the overall distance and additional furniture of the room.
