It's been a while since the subject of mirrors has come to my attention. Although every home is sure to have at least one mirror in every bathroom, the majority of home owners have no idea of what is available when it comes to decorative wall mirrors. This is to inform those of you who are not aware of the fact that mirrors can be just as beautiful as any other form of art hanging on a wall. |
I would like to start out by outlining your options (and there are plenty of them) when it comes to choosing a decorative wall mirror to match the style and theme of the room you plan to display your wall mirror in. There are three basic categories involved in making your decision on a decorative wall mirror.
The first of these three categories is the Type of wall mirror you will be looking for to match up with the overall design of the room. The second category is Style of wall mirror to compliment the theme or topic of the decor in the room. The third category is Finish/Color. Here you have to choose what type of finish or color your wall mirror should have in order to coincide with the color scheme of the room.
Allow me to go over each of these categories in order to make you familiar with what your options or choices are in each of these. Once you know your wall mirror options, you will then be able to choose a wall mirror to best match the decor of any room you wish to grace with a decorative wall mirror.
Now let's take a look at what Types of wall mirrors are available to you. When I talk about "Type" of wall mirror, what I am really talking about is the shape of the wall mirror and the basic features of the construction of the wall mirror.
Here some of the choices you have are Arched & Crowned, Children's Mirrors, Framed/Frameless, Octagon, Oval, Rectangle, Round, Square, Vanity Mirrors and the list goes on, but these will give you a good idea of what type of decorative wall mirror types are available. From here you can explore several wall mirror resources and find a wide selection of types available.
After you know what the shape and construction your decorative wall mirror should be, the next thing to do is explore a Style to match the theme of the room in which it will hang. This is important because you want to match the feel of the room with every piece of art you place into the room. Decorative wall mirrors are as much a work of art as any other art piece you would place on your walls.
Some of the Styles available to you in a decorative wall mirror are Art Deco, Asian, Contemporary, Country, Crystal, Early American, Mission, Old World, Retro, Rustic/Lodge, Southwestern, Traditional, Transitional, Tropical, Victorian and Whimsical. Although there are more style choices, this will give you a good idea of what is available to you and a great starting point for your search.
