The mirror then is space...and it is function.. and a good interior design idea is to look at the mirror in a living room. If the mirror is above the fireplace ask why it is there. Is it for function or decoration or another reason or probably a mix of all three. In a living room you may be unwittingly using the mirror as a central decorative object but you are not bringing out the full effect. This may be because of the mirror itself or general bad interior design planning for your room. In interior design the purpose of the room is an important concept. The question of having a definite purpose for your room arises when you are looking at your room and its space. The mirror must have a specific purpose and this purpose can be brought out through the way the mirror or mirrors merges with the color tones in the room as well as the overall space and other furniture of the room.
However when a mirror is so obviously functional you can add mirrors that are more decorative in aim. You can have for example mirrors at the foot level. You can have mirrors which just show the abdomen level.
These mirrors work exceptionally well in entrance hallways; try positioning above a console table to create a striking focal point that will instantly catch the attention of guests. The mirror would look equally at home featured on a plain wall; they offer fantastic bursts of light therefore if you have a narrow and long entrance hallway a sunburst can help create the illusion of increased space.
The placement of glittering glass mirrors is just as important as their design and many people fail to make the best of these home accents by locating them wrongly. Glass mirrors reflect light so you should place them where they achieve this to their maximum capacity. Use them to reflect candlelight natural light from a window or even light from your beautiful decorative lamps.
Most American furniture manufacturers include mirrors in their range of bedroom furniture and some also manufacture mirrors for the living room or dining room. Bedroom mirrors are not necessarily restricted to that room and many are used all over the house - wherever reflection and a need to expand a room are required.
At one time mirrors were made using a backing of mercury but these are no longer manufactured. They can also be made using silver precipitated from a silver nitrate solution. However today most mirrors are made by evaporating aluminum onto glass although other coats are applied to improve adhesion and durability. For example a black backing can be applied to improve opacity and reflectivity.
