Choosing Bedroom Mirrors
By Kimberly Wolfe
Bedroom mirrors are more than just reflecting surfaces that you use to check how your hair’s done before you go out of your room. While they are a big help when you dress up, they can also do wonders for your interior design. So how do you know which type of mirror do you need in your room? Here are some ideas about the different types and functions of mirrors you’ll see in furniture shops.
Among the most common mirrors that you’ll find in bedrooms is a simple one that’s hung on the wall. It can be as simple as a rectangular wood-framed type or as intricate as one with carvings and gold paint. Usually, you pick mirror designs while considering only your room design. For instance, you match Victorian bed and furniture with bedroom mirrors that are quite ornate.
But you can also choose mirrors to fulfill an extra function – that is, to widen your space through illusion. Frameless mirrors give you a minimalist look and also help open up your bedroom space. If you prefer a framed mirror, you can choose an oversized one, so it can still give you the light-reflecting properties that you need to create an illusion of having a big space.
Almost any woman would want a well-lighted makeup mirror that truly serves its purpose. There are dresser sets that come with a big mirror, usually oval or rectangular in shape. Those who are fortunate to have a separate dressing room usually have a mirror with surrounding multiple lights installed.
Freestanding bedroom mirrors were a must in the olden days. The ladies needed these full-length vanity pieces to make sure their corsets were tied well and that they looked good in their long skirts. The traditional oval wooden type would give your room an instant vintage element. You can place a wooden chest or a divan beside it for a complete sentimental appeal. But you don’t need to have a lot of space to have your own full-length mirror. These days, they come in different designs and with versatile attachments to fit any room. You can buy one that you can mount on your wall or at the back of your door to save you some room space.
Now that you have some ideas about the mirrors that you can choose from for your bedroom, you’re now ready to shop. But before you head out the door and into the mall, you might want to check out the Internet for furniture shops that offer cheap bedroom mirrors. Some of the online shops usually give generous discounts and special offers, which may even include free delivery.
