Mirrors can visually expand your room and add excitement.
The CAD photos below showrooms I have designed with mirrors to make the rooms seem larger.
There are two important things to remember when using floor-to-ceiling mirrors:
To get the full effect, the mirror should be from floor to ceiling. If you just put a mirror on the wall you will still see the wall that it is hanging on. You only want to see the reflection.
Mirrors can visually double your space.
The room above is a typical narrow dining room with not enough room for a table and chairs and a buffet. That leaves you with two bare walls. The artwork will work great on one side but is too redundant to use on both walls. I designed a floor-to-ceiling mirror in the room above. As you can see it will visually double the space. The dining room will feel much more open. In a rectangular room, always put the mirror on the long wall. It will visually double the space, so if you have a narrow room and you put it on the end wall, your room will look like a hallway.
This is a narrow dining room turned into a Wine Lounge. To get the right feel in this room, I have used a floor-to-ceiling mirror on the wall to the right. It has the effect of doubling everything in the room (love seats, coffee table, bookcase, and chandelier). In addition, even the ceiling and floor will look twice as big.
The CAD photo below shows an archway that looks like the opening to a living room. Instead, the arch was created with a mirrored back; you are looking at the reflection of the
living room. This is a great way to add some excitement and drama to a room.
I like to develop creative solutions for my clients to help improve their lives. If you have a room in your house that is not being used, let’s talk and find a way to make it one of your favorite rooms.
