A mirror is a great piece to add to your entryway or a vignette. They can help bring light to the space and add a different look than the usual wall art. To take it up a design notch, try incorporating a round mirror. They offer a unique look and style that the typical mirror cannot.
People often ask, what are the rules to hanging mirrors or artwork? What are the measurements? Let us sum it up quickly and easily for you guys:
1. The mirror or artwork should be two-thirds (2/3) or three-fourths (3/4) as wide as the side console. Get out those rulers and start measuring!
2. If you are hanging a mirror or artwork above a side console or furniture you typically hang it 3-8 inches above the furniture. This is a general height that can be adjusted to your liking and will depend on how large or small the piece you are hanging is.
3. If you are hanging a mirror or piece of artwork on a wall on its own, depending on the size of the piece being hung, you typically hang it 55-65 inches above the floor. The general measurement depends on how high the wall is and what is to be hung.
These measurements are of course general guidelines that will get you started on your designing you space. At the end of the day, it’s your mirror or artwork being hung so do what you think looks best. If you want your art to bigger than your side console than be our guest. It is your home after all.
I know we got lost in the measurements, but a round mirror is a fun piece to add to you home. Check out these round mirrors to get inspired by the look and play with the idea of one hanging in your home.
Mirrors can be your best friend or the thing you hate most. It all depends on your mood and mainly what you see in the reflection. However, mirrors that are used for decorating purposes will always be your best friend. They can add light to the space and make small spaces appear larger. If you have a small space to work with, or your home is smaller, you can make the space look bigger with mirrors. It will open the room up and make it feel brighter and larger.
By putting a mirror opposite a window or a set of windows it will bring more light into the space. It also helps to get a little scientific. You’ll want to know where the sun shines through into your home. You don’t want those mirrors turning into reflectors that constantly blind you. That will bring unwanted light into the space and make you wish you didn’t have those beautiful mirrors.
You can also put those mirror to work. Hang them opposite your favorite piece of art and have the mirror reflect the art. This will draw more attention to it and truly make it the center of the room.
Mirrors can be fun and very useful. Get started on your mirror search by coming into one of the stores or get started online at Tuvalu Home!
