Mirror Decor – A few guidelines

If the room in which you are adding decorative mirrors is small, place them only in the one wall and your space will be doubled. Try to avoid mirrors with frames.

An attractive way to hang a mirror is with a slight inclination at the top so that the reflection of the objects offer an interesting perspective.

If you place a decorative mirror opposite a wall that has not been decorated it will give out a cold and empty feeling.

Wet your finger to create a mark on the wall rather than using pens or any other type of ink that will permanently stain the paint.

Sometimes bits of paint come off the wall when hammering nails. Stick cello tape to it in the shape of a cross and place the nail or hook in the center to avoid damaging the wall.

Don’t place any mirrors where the sun can hit any part of it at any given time of the day. Also be careful to not hang any mirror so it reflects parts of the room we don’t want to enhance.

The beauty about decorative mirrors is that they fit any style or type of decor you are want to achieve for almost any room.
