Effective Use of Wall Mirrors in a Hallway
Effective Use of Wall Mirrors in a Hallway. Hallways in the home are often forgotten when it comes to the decorating scheme, and yet they can add more to the ambiance and style with little attention. Since they are by design small areas, the first goal is often to make them appear larger than they really are. Also, homeowners strive to improve the quality of light in the hall in order to create a more welcoming and attractive look.
How can a home-owner accomplish these goals without installing skylights or knocking down walls? The answer is by using wall mirrors. The careful and well-planned installation of mirrors can both increase the appearance of space in a hall and reflect light in order to create warmth and well-being, you can also match the style of mirror to the decor in your home and hallway.
Placing your mirrors in the best area
Full Length Mirrors look great in a hallway either placed near the entrance or on a lonely wall facing the door. This will instantly give the illusion of a much longer brighter hallway. Homes that have antique furniture would work better with an antique-gold, gilt-framed mirror hanging near a shaded lamp. Or consider creating a mosaic of smaller mirrors placed on an available hallway wall. This is an effective way of creating the wow factor.
The placement of mirrors in a hall can make the space look longer, wider or brighter. For a longer look, put large mirrors at the ends of the hall to reflect the entire length. If you want a narrow hall to appear wider, put larger mirrors on the side walls. This is especially effective if you place them opposite a window. Not only will you get the appearance of having another window in the room, but it will increase the amount and quality of light.
Mirrors reflect any light source and can be strategically placed to reflect it into darker corners of the hall or to spotlight certain paintings or decor pieces without resorting to spotlights or direct sunlight. Place opposite a window to reflect sunlight as mentioned above, or position a mirror behind a lamp to increase the light output.
The front hall of a home should give guests a warm and welcoming first impression. The inclusion and careful placement of mirrors that match the style of the decor, both the size and light quality of the hall can be positively augmented to improve the overall look.
