Prepare your handyman tools.You will need a few basic tools to hang mirrors: hammer, small nails, a measuring tape and perhaps some way of checking to see that the mirrors are level. Hardware stores and home-decorating stores now carry a wide variety of hanging clips, wire and other devices that are perfecting for locating mirrors in the room. (Don't hesitate to place mirrors in places other than on the walls. Some mirrors will work very well on a stand if the placement is right.
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.
Many on line retailers offer a full selection of mirrors that will suit your decor needs and your budget. It is a great way to shop, as it is an easy way to see a wide variety of mirrors with accessories and accent furniture that compliment them. The photos on the sites will also help you get a feel for how you can use a mirror in your space. Overall, shop for a mirror that will make a dramatic change to your room while at the same time make it feel larger and brighter.
