Different Types of Mirrors for Your Bed and Bathrooms

December 5th, 2012 Bed and Bath

Everyone has at least one mirror in his or her home - most of us have much more than that! Beyond their use for telling us how we look in the morning and before we go out, mirrors also can work as d├ęcor pieces throughout the home. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and it's important to be able to wade through the vast amount of choices you have to find one that works for you. If you've been looking to spruce up your interior design, some tastefully placed mirrors may be right up your alley. Here's a quick primer on the many options you have available.

The bathroom is certainly the most obvious place to put a mirror, but there's no rule saying you have to stick with a basic rectangular piece above your sink. Consider using a more unique shape, such as an oval, to bring a bit of variety to the space. It'll still serve the function that you need it to and will add a certain aesthetic quality at the same time. You can also frame a traditional rectangular mirror with an ornate design for some added pizazz.

In the bedroom, you can use mirrors to create an expanded sense of space. This is especially good news for those with smaller rooms, but it works in larger ones as well. Place a standup mirror in an unused corner and it will immediately make the room seem more spacious. If you're lucky enough to have a large bedroom, a vanity can also work very well. Either way, they're a great way to instantly bring some vitality into your space!
