When you focus on mirrors you really notice the magical aspects that they add to your home:

Perceptual light

Expand the size of the room

Reflect candlelight in a surreal way

Focus the eye

Whether you place mirrors indoor or outdoors they create a kind of magical illusion 

There is no set quota of mirrors per room and more recently people are adding more and more mirrors into their homes

In this Blog we will look at unique home areas to add a mirror. Let's begin with the most unlikely room for a mirror - the verandah, the balcony under cover or alfresco area of your home to add a mirror. Placing a mirror in that unconventional space will create it into a real room, extending the perceived indoor space of your home, not just an outdoor area to sit in casually. Conventionally mirrors were reserved for indoor rooms thus the suprise element of a mirror addition. It will also add value to your home if you are thinking of selling it.

Add a mirror and voila it is transformed. Remember the most unexpected creation is your unique decor style, that others will love to emulate and will create a memorable YOU home.

3 suggested options for adding mirrors to your outdoor area:

Place a mirror in the middle of an expanse of bedroom windows when your bedroom window is either large or has an incredible view which is wonderful in itself - but you can lose the sheer intimacy that is so necessary for your bedroom nurturing and cause the eye to be focused on the outdoor area, rather than on you and yours.

Hang a mirror in the centre of your large bedroom windows and immediately your eye is contained in the room and its furnishings not lost in the vista outside
