The shape of the mirror and how you hang it will also make an impact on your space. For example, hanging a mirror vertically will add height to a space while hanging a mirror horizontally will fill a wall. Also, adding a round mirror to a boxy room will liven up the space. The round shape adds interest by breaking up all of the straight lines. In addition, mirrors with an arched or richly ornamented top are an elegant way to dress up a space. Traditionally this shape has been used above a mantle. Mirrors are a fabulous tool to add depth and light to a room. This makes them a great idea for smaller spaces. Mirrors will make smaller spaces feel larger by giving the room the appearance of having more depth. Light from windows and light fixtures will reflect in mirrors and bounce back into a room adding more light to the space. A mirror in a room without windows will reflect the lights and make the room appear brighter. Another great idea is to place a mirror behind anything you want to highlight when you are displaying items. Mirrors catch your eye and will therefore show off the things in front of it.
What I call custom, is a wall mirror that is shaped in a non-uniform manner. An example of a custom wall mirror is a framed sectional mirror. There is a vanity mirror with a carved wood frame that actually holds 3 separate mirrors. There are 2 arched mirrors on each side, with a rectangle mirror in the center of the frame. Let me tell you this piece of wall mirror woodwork is absolutely gorgeous! Another simpler example of a custom wall mirror would be a triangular shaped mirror.
Place a mirror over the fireplace. For most home's the fireplace is already the focal point of the room in which it resides. Add more emphasis to the fireplace by placing a beautifully framed mirror above the mantel. This will enlarge the room, and add a reflective surface to the décor you place on the mantle. From candle sticks to seasonal décor, a fireplace begs for a gorgeous mirror to adorn it.
