How the Right Mirror Can Add Design Flair to Any Room

By Corey McNeill

We have all design preferences and favourite trends when it comes to revamping the home. Some of us love the idea of a vintage theme throughout the house, whereas others would like to keep things classic. Whatever your preference, you’re going to want to accessorise each of the rooms in your home. And that’s where mirrors come in! They’re so versatile, you can use them to add design flair to practically any space. Here are our top tips for using mirrors with some of the best interior design trends.

The Minimalist

It’s a popular interior design trend that made big waves in the 60s and kind of never left! Not that we’re complaining. If you want to add the finishing touches to a minimalist room, then you’re going to want to stick with one of two colours. Black or white. Monochrome and the minimalist style seem to go hand in hand. It also means that you don’t need to worry about making things look too ‘busy’ in each room, as the mirror will complement rather than clutter.

The Contemporary

If you’re going for a more modern feel in your home, then you’ll find it pretty easy to find a mirror to match. You can go for quirky designs or unusual colours, and it will still fit in nicely. However, if you really want to make the contemporary look work then opt for a frameless mirror. Something modern with unusual shapes that will certainly turn heads when people walk in.

The Splash of Colour

A design trend that has been going for years is the ‘splash of colour’. While the majority of the room is in neutral palettes, there will be a handful of colourful items that really pop. You can have a lot of fun with your mirror choice here! Just make sure that you pick something that complements the other accessories in your room. You don’t want a clash of colour!

The Vintage

The vintage look has made a serious comeback over the last few years, so you’re going to be spoilt for choice when accessorising. It seems that people can’t get enough of copper when adding to their vintage style rooms. If that’s not your thing, look for more shabby chic style mirrors. Anything that looks like it’s been worn in will work well for a vintage room.

The Classic

Looking for something timeless? You probably have a real thing for classic design styles. In this case, your mirror choice is pretty easy! Gold or silver frames will give off that regal feel and really finish a room off. The bigger the better when it comes to a classically styled room, as it’s a real show of taste, wealth and design flair. We’re picturing your new mirror above the traditional fireplace!

Don’t you think it’s amazing how something as simple as a mirror can really finish a design project off? And you don’t even need to be an expert interior designer! Use our top tips when you next spruce up a room, to see exactly what we mean.
