Making a Statement with a Charming Wood Mirror

A mirror is a great addition to any space. The glass reflects light, making the room feel brighter and more open, and they add a bit of glamour, as well. The shape and frame of the mirror are important to capture the right look and style you want to go for. The mirror can even serve as a statement piece, especially if you go with a wood mirror.

Wood-framed mirrors bring a rustic touch to the shiny glass. This creates an interesting contrast. Also, any time you incorporate wood into a space, you’re instantly adding more character and charm to it, so there are a lot of benefits to incorporating a wood mirror into a room.

Not sure where to put one in your home? Here are some ideas and inspiration to help you figure it out.

The Versatile Style of Oversized Mirrors

I’ve talked a lot about the benefits of using mirrors in decor throughout my blogging journey, but I thought oversized mirrors deserved their own post because they are in a league of their own. Large mirrors have that “wow” factor that makes them statement pieces when added to a space. They naturally have a luxurious vibe that can make a space feel more elegant and grandiose. Besides reflecting a lot of light back into a space and making it feel more open, they also bring a lot of character with them regardless of style. You can even use them in some unexpected ways.

Here are some examples of beautiful spaces making great use of oversized mirrors…

Mirror, Mirror: Unique Ideas For Decorating With Mirrors

Mirrors are a fantastic design element for any home. Besides the usual uses, there are some great ways to use mirrors that can enhance a space. Mirrors do a great job of making a space feel more open by reflecting light and giving the illusion that it is larger than it actually is. This is very important in home staging because spaces that feel large and have lots of light sell better than ones that are darker and cramped. But you don’t have to go the traditional route with mirrors to get the effect you desire. Check out these unique ideas for decorating with mirrors.
