9 ideas to give amplitude sensation with mirrors

Light, as we know, is a decorative element of the first magnitude and we can use it to create a feeling of spaciousness. And this increased its intensity as well as taking advantage of its capacity for reflection. This last quality of light has been used in decoration since the seventeenth century when the Venetian factories made the first large mirrors. We are going to see these 9 ideas to give a feeling of spaciousness with mirrors and you will surely understand at the moment how this secular decorative trick works.


The mirrors can be used anywhere in the house, even where there is no space at first sight. Where it fits a small receiver or similar furniture behind a mirror, either hung or resting on the floor as we see in the image above.


In the living room or living room if we have the sofa leaning against a wall we can install behind a large mirror that will multiply space and light. As you know, the mirror reflects all the light rays that come to it and therefore returns a duplicated, though inverted, image of reality.


This will double the space of a room when the mirror is very large but you can also get very interesting effects using special mirrors. This is the case of this room where two mirrors have been hung in the shape of a window that give the feeling that the room is open to the outside. In addition the sideboard is also covered with mirrors which helps to increase the visual effect and also create good coordination in the environment.


The bedroom is also a good place to make use of this resource we are talking about. We just have to be careful, if we are a little flirtatious, not to place it where we see ourselves newly awakened. The headboard, as in the image above, is an excellent place as it will look from the entrance and give the feeling that the room is more spacious.


Coating the doors that separate different rooms is also a very practical resource to give a sense of spaciousness. We achieve that separation, which always implies a limit for our sight, is not so evident.


A small bathroom is an ideal space to make use of this decorative resource. The mirrors will expand the space and greatly increase the brightness of the room.


Hanging in front of a window, the mirror will create a very important sensation of openness besides reflecting the natural light that enters through the window. It will give us a great sense of spaciousness.


In the dining room it is also a good option to hang a large mirror on the wall closest to the table. Logically this resource will work very well in small dining rooms.


A closet is a very bulky piece of furniture and when installed in a small room it can be oppressive. One way to soften this invasion of space is to install mirrors on their doors and thus we will achieve that at least it does not seem to occupy so much of the room.
