In this article, I am suggesting some interior design ideas. In this article, the mirror is viewed as something functional. There’s also obviously a decorative purpose into the mirror. However sometimes these points can be forgotten.
Suppose there’s a small space e.g. a small-sized toilet. It is used by the guy for shaving for instance, to wash teeth. But when a bit is so obviously functional as the mirror, there are strategies to produce the mirror even more decorative. I am saying here that in some way, it’s easier to make something so functional as the mirror in this toilet setting into something cosmetic. You can aim to get a mirror with a portion of ornamentation or you can decide to get a certain type of glass to the mirror.
But when a mirror is so obviously functional, it is possible to add mirrors which are more cosmetic in goal. You can have for instance, mirrors in the foot degree. You can have mirrors which only demonstrate the stomach level.
In the living space, a lot of instances the mirror is put above the fireplace and when you think about this, there seems to be something cosmetic relating to this. It is decorative in the sense that the mirror seems to be the major decoration. It is a central piece of decorative furniture and even though its function is clear, decoration seems to be the main purpose. If the major reason is cosmetic, then it is possible to add to the interior by using other mirrors in a more functional setting and showing up the decorative purpose of this central mirror above the fireplace. Again within this living room setting, it is possible to display up the performance and decorativeness of this mirror item by adding mirrors in foot flat along one of the walls.
Another interior design idea would be to set a folding mirror in the corner. . A sort of triptych of mirrors which fold inwards… Another thought would be to get a mirror on one wall continuing into the additional walls; Various effects can be used- e.g. two long rectangular cushions of equal size in the corners of each wall…or else the cushions do not have to be the exact same size at all. The mirror then is decoration and function. Think about the mirror as space as a thing that creates space.
The mirror is space:
This is a well-known intention of a mirror. When you have a large space e.g. a hall it is possible to use mirrors in different ways to create more space and you’ll be able to aim for this effect in small spaces like an ordinary living space. Then the mirror can be utilised in such a way as to create the interior. This is sometimes achieved when there are mirrors combined a complete wall. There can be continuous mirrors along a wall or merely long vertical or vertical rectangles of mirrors. You can take a mirror, then background then a mirror again. If the room is rectangular, the corners of this space should have some layout component. The corners of the rooms are where the partitions ‘float’ and interior design effects can be used to emphasize this region. The mirrors emphasize in some manner the central area however, the side corners can also be highlighted through objects e.g. lampshades…
The mirror then is space…and it’s function. . And a good interior design idea would be to examine the mirror in a living room. If the mirror is above the fireplace, then ask why it’s there. Can it be for decoration or function or a different reason or probably a mixture of all three. In a living space, you may be unwittingly using the mirror as a central decorative object but you aren’t bringing out the full effect. This may be because of the mirror itself or overall bad interior layout planning to your room. In interior design, the intention of the space is an important idea. The question of having a definite purpose to your room arises whenever you are looking at your space and its own space. The mirror needs to have a specific purpose and this purpose can be brought out through the way the mirror or mirrors unifies with the colour tones in the space in addition to the overall space and additional furniture of this room.
