The Origin of the Sunburst Mirror- The sunburst mirror has a fascinating history that dates right back to the 17th Century. During the 17th Century the Catholic Church began to use monstrances above the alter these elaborate designs were made up of decorative stands surrounded by glided rays of sunshine demonstrating what we know today as the sunburst style. These monstrances were often found in churches in Italy featured above the altar. The very first mirrors were very small and convex and it wasn’t until the late 17th Century that mirror production became more established and mirrors eventually increased in size.
The size of the Mirror- It is the first thing to be considered. The dimensions of the wall will determine the size of the mirror. The mirror should not distort the charm of the wall décor. The size of the mirror also influences the nature of the room. For a vanity area Select a mirror which suits the physical profile of household. For decorative purposes use different sizes of mirrors for different areas. The place where you are going to hang the mirror puts a bar on their size. So make a note of all dimensions of your area.
