According to Feng Shui, mirrors in the home shouldn’t reflect bad, dirty or ugly things such as sharp edges, clutters, toilet seat or garbage bin as they believed to double anything they reflect. In the bedroom, mirrors can add and double light, as well as bring visual impact and energy to the bedroom.
However, decorating the bedroom with mirrors is not as easy as it sound. But don’t worry, here are some expert tips to place decorative wall mirrors in the bedroom and incorporate them into overall design and theme.
1) Consider trends
You can add a mirror in a popular design to add flair to your bedroom. Opt for a round mirror with a starburst-like frame, or maybe a sunray-framed mirror. That’s the smart way to incorporate trends without having to fully commit.
2) Create visual impact
A big decorative mirror in your bedroom will create a major visual impact in the room. Hang a large mirror overlooking one bedroom wall. The reflection will make the entire room look and feel larger.
3) Reflect the sunlight
To make the bedroom well-illuminated at the daylight, you need to bring more natural light in. Place a decorative mirror opposite bedroom’s windows to make the room looks brighter and wider.
4) Look for a unique place
Hang your decorative wall mirror in an unthinkable place in the bedroom. For example, you can hang a mirror behind your nightstand, for a look that adds interest without overwhelming.
5) In front of the master bathroom
If you’re decorating a master bedroom with an incorporated bathroom, you can place a mirror in front of bathroom’s door. One thing to keep in mind, the mirror should never reflect the toilet.
According to Feng Shui, hanging a decorative wall mirror outside the bathroom door is considered good as the mirror pushes the energy away from entering the bathroom. That way, the energy is prevented from going down the drain. Use a big mirror for this purpose.
Hanging a large decorative wall mirror in the bedroom not only creates the look of more space, it also adds depth and appeals to the overall room’s aesthetic.
6) Multiple mirrors
Embellishing the bedroom with more than one decorative wall mirrors in various shape and size adds playfulness and makes the room looks brighter and wider.
