Antique Mirror New York


Is a mirror really that important in a room? The answer is YES! Here are the benefits of having one or more mirrors in a room:

Create the illusion of space. A well-placed mirror can help give the appearance of more space. It reflects the room, making you think that a room is larger than it actually is. A small, narrow room can benefit from hanging a wall mirror, or you can even place a large mirror to make the room look spacious. Have a mirror in the hallway or a bathroom to make it look expansive.

Increase lighting. A mirror reflects light from natural source (sunlight), and man-made ones (lamps, chandeliers, candles, etc.). More natural light that comes in a room is great since you won’t have to turn on the lights to see clearly. It makes the room airy, and the more visible a room, the more spacious it looks. You can also save on energy costs since mirrors help illuminate a room during daytime.

Hide imperfections in a room. If a wall in your home has an unsightly part such as a hole, paint scratch, or discolored paint, just hang a beautiful mirror in that spot and it immediately hides that imperfection. If you need a large wall area to cover, place an oversize mirror to do the trick.
Statement piece. A large mirror can be a beautiful accent piece in a room. Have a decorative mirror in a room that needs attention. You can use a mirror with ornate carvings, a full length mirror, or an oversize mirror for great impact. It will immediately brighten the room and create a nice focal point in the area. Use a mirror to update the look of a room, to get a cohesive style in an area, or to bring interest in a space.
Practical use. Of all the benefits of a mirror, the most important one is it’s functional use. You use a mirror to check on yourself before leaving the house, for your grooming rituals, etc.
