Why do Interior Designers often use Mirrors in their designs?
Mirrors, when used strategically, have the quality of bringing a sensation of light and space to a room. For many designers this is a very useful characteristic, for example, simply by placing a mirror
In a dark corner of a room, it will ‘lighten’ up the corner with reflected light.
Behind a lamp, it will produce twice the light-up effect, without the need to over-brighten the room with a more powerful bulb.
Behind a house plant, will give greater foliage and the illusion of space beyond.
Over the mantle-piece will give the illusion of a larger, brighter room (a very useful attribute in new homes!) Using an elegant mirror as the feature of a room is often preferable to using a framed picture.
Where are your mirrors made?
Our extensive range of mirrors is either manufactured exclusively for Simply Mirrors or sourced from leading suppliers worldwide.
How should a mirror be hung?
With the exception of small mirror, all mirrors should be hung using special wall fixing designed for the purpose of hanging mirrors. Unlike normal framed pictures, mirrors are considerably heavier and require stronger and more secure fixings. You should not hang a mirror using string, twine or even wire.
What is bevelled glass?
With a bevelled glass mirror, a narrow Border around the outer edge of the glass is cut with a slight slope / chisel-edge for an attractive effect especially when framed. Plain un-framed mirrors usually have normal polished edges.
