Frequently Asked Questions about Mirrors
How do I choose the right mirror for my space?
It's important to think about the primary function of the mirror. Is it for a quick check before you leave the house, a decorative element, or a means to bring more light into a room? Your answer will determine the best location and style for your mirror.
Next, consider the size of the space. Larger mirrors are excellent for smaller rooms because they create an illusion of depth and space, making the room appear larger than it is. They're also useful in darker rooms, as they reflect light around the space, brightening it. However, the size of the mirror should be proportionate to the wall space available — a mirror that's too large can overwhelm the room, while one that's too small may look lost.
The style of the room should also influence your choice. If your room has a modern aesthetic, look for a mirror with a minimalistic design or a bold, geometric shape. For a more traditional space, choose a mirror with a rich, ornate frame. The shape of the mirror can also impact the feel of your room. For instance, round mirrors often soften the hard angles in a room, while rectangular mirrors provide a sense of order and structure.
Furthermore, consider the frame material and color. It should complement the other colors and materials in the room. If your space is mostly neutral, a mirror with a bold, colorful frame can add a pop of color.
Lastly, placement is crucial. Mirrors placed opposite windows can maximize natural light, while those set across from favorite decor elements can double the visual impact.
Can I place any mirror in the bathroom?
Mirrors are a bathroom essential, but the unique conditions in this space mean you have to be careful about your choice. The high humidity caused by hot showers and baths can affect the quality of your mirror over time. Regular mirrors may develop black spots beneath the glass — a condition known as 'desilvering' — due to moisture seeping through.
To prevent this, it's wise to choose mirrors specifically designed for bathrooms. These mirrors are manufactured to be more resistant to humidity and moisture. They often come with special backing material that prevents water vapor from getting behind the glass, protecting the reflective coating of the mirror from damage.
