Mirrors are to decor what jewelry is to a pretty outfit: an essential complement!

With the trend towards XXL formats, mirrors more than ever bring amplitude to space and create interesting reflections while allowing light to travel.

A feeling of space: in addition to its utilitarian aspect, a wall or standing mirror reflects light and creates the impression of a breakthrough in the wall.

A mirror for every room: essential in the bathroom, the shower room and the bedroom, very useful in the entrance, the mirror becomes decorative in the living room or dining room. Two winning ideas: position it above the dining room buffet to create a reflection of abundance, and in the living room, install it so that it reflects the light (and the view, if there is a view). !) who enters through the windows.

Different trends: this year, we see a lot of mirrors with wavy or organic shapes that are reminiscent of Salvador Dali’s paintings. Antique mirrors and large format mirrors are also very fashionable.

Different styles: it is the framing that gives the mirror its style. When surrounded by an interesting material, it becomes a decorative element in its own right.

A decorative project at a low price: for a pretty mirror at a low price, don’t hesitate to transform the frame with metallic paint, chalk paint, an old patina effect, etc. It’s an easy decorating project to do.
