Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
One way to really class up your San Diego Home and make a space feel bigger is to add mirrors. Not only do mirrors trick the eye reflecting the room to make it look larger, but they intensify light in the space.
How high does one hang a mirror? As with art, there is a proper height for a mirror when it is being hung like art. The center point of the area, vertically should be 5 feet, 8 inches high.
Choosing a Size
A large room needs a large mirror, a small room a small. If your room is large but you do not have a large mirror, a grouping of similar sized models can look wonderful when hung properly. When grouping mirrors, the outside line of the grouping should be as large as a large-scale piece would look.
Lastly, floor mirrors are an elegant touch and designers use them to give a smaller space an enormous increase in visual space.
Frames can tie things together well. For an eclectic look, a wide variety of frames can look great. Frameless mirrors can look contemporary. Mirrors can be used give the illusion of a window. I’ve also seen them used at the back of a fireplace reflecting candlelight to brighten a room.
