Mirrors are objects that are used very often in homes. Apart from their basic uses in bathrooms and bedrooms, mirrors are also used in rooms to create an illusion of more space. Studies show that when mirrors are placed in a room, it looks larger and more spacious. People who are interested in spiritual peace are also very into using mirrors.

Usually, mirrors are placed on the walls opposite the entrance to a house because it is said that the mirrors reflect all the bad energy out of the house. You will find that a lot of houses place long mirrors opposite the front door. It is important to keep a very good quality mirror here as it is literally the first thing that will be seen by any visitors.

Mirrors come in different shapes and sizes. Mirrors in bedrooms are usually full length vertical mirrors, or they are long and placed above dressing tables. Bathrooms have really large mirrors that sometimes placed on the entire wall.

Gilded mirrors are usually beautifully decorated. They can be very fancy and grand, and can lend an extremely decorative air to a space. Renaissance style mirrors are elaborately designed and full of ornate curlicues, leaf motifs and spirals. Art deco style mirrors are full of bold lines and the nature inspired prints.

Sometimes mirrors can be used instead of art work. It all depends on how you frame a mirror. You can frame it extremely decoratively, which is juxtaposed with the simplicity of the mirror.

Circular mirrors are very common over basins and washing areas.

Be careful with the kind of mirrors you buy. Be sure to purchase good quality mirrors because cheap ones will chip and crack very easily. Cracked and chipped mirrors look very bad in a room as they can be very tacky and vulgar.
