NZHomeware provides you stylish, modern mirrors.
Mirrors perform many functions. Use one to augment, define, or accentuate what is already present in your space, or place it where it reflects a favorite view. You can also use a mirror to open up a room or to add some light.
Find a Shape of Mirror That Works for You
As you might have already realized, shape plays an important role in defining any space. It can create a mood, accentuate what is already there, or give an illusion of something else.
A long horizontal shape of mirror will serve to accentuate width, as it helps sweep your eye along a long line. A tall vertical shape of mirror will call attention to height as it makes your eye travel up.
An angular shape of mirror such as a square or rectangle will help give an orderly restrained look.
Use a rounded or curved frame for a softer or maybe even whimsical look, depending on the style of its frame.
Choose the Right Size of Mirror
If you want your mirror to be a focal point in your room, make sure it is large enough to stand out, but also define it by choosing a frame that makes it even more noticeable.
If you want your mirror to become part of the background, you should choose one that is extra large so that its function then becomes to make your space appear larger. Don't give it a frame that draws attention to itself.
Smaller mirrors can be used as accents, catching light here, reflecting an interesting object there. They can also be used in groups. If you do plan to use smaller mirrors in groups, remember that together are acting to form a much larger shape and these could act as a focal point in the room.
