Floor mirrors as a means of visual room enlargement


New York based Interior Designer. "When smart people work with me they are saving time and money — and you’re smart too!"

Floor mirrors are beautiful interior decor elements. They help underscore the selected design style and visually enlarge the room. Designers have an abundance of love for such large mirrors.

Floor-standing mirrors, both relatively small and large, are suitable for any room: drawing room, entrance hall, bedroom or bathroom. A small room will look larger with such a mirror, while a pretty airy one will have its spaciousness accentuated.

The mirror should be selected to comply with the existing interior style. In furniture stores you’ll find pieces of any style, from pompous baroque to laconic minimalism. Pay special attention to the frame.

Baroque-styled floor-standing mirrors can be decorated with carvings or ironwork. Rustic mirrors tend to feature simple wooden frames of natural wooden color, possibly with penny plain carved decorations. If the mirror surface is artificially aged, it creates a stylish vintage shade. Modern interiors usually employ floor-standing lean-to mirrors with laconic frames. Also, consider the weight of the frame – the heavier it is, the steadier the mirror stands on the floor.

The mentioned lean-to pieces are not nearly the only type of mirrors for the floor.

There are also cheval mirrors (with stands); however, they are less popular and not suitable for dining or living room.
