  • How to Use Mirrors to Brighten a Dark Room

    Gone are the days where mirrors are just for dressing or checking yourself out before heading out the door.

    Mirrors are now trending within homes offering aesthetics and interior design in a new and exciting way. They’re a decorative piece that can transform and reinvigorate your home for a fraction of the price that it would cost to do a renovation.

    But how, you ask?

    Let’s take a look at how you can use everything from window mirrors to full length mirrors, arch mirrors, and sunburst mirrors to brighten a dark room.

     

    Use a Large Mirror to Reflect the Natural Light Throughout the Room

    In a dark room, chances are windows are limited or at the very least, too small to brighten the area. Prior to this interior design hack, you’d have to fork out a fortune to install new windows but that’s all about to change.

    Stage a large mirror in the dark room to allow it to reflect natural lighting throughout the space. We suggest using a window pane mirror to create the illusion of an extra window, without the high price.  You can hang it either horizontally or vertically, and you can also stage it on the ground and use it as a decorative piece as well.

     

    Line Your Hallways with Several Sunburst Mirrors

    There’s no better way to bring some sunlight into a dark space than with a sunburst wall mirror. Hallways are often the darkest areas of a home, relying solely on overhead lighting which can narrow in the already-compressed space. Lining the walls with some sunburst wall mirrors can be the perfect way to liven up and brighten the entire space.

    As a bonus, these decorative wall mirrors add an eloquent dose of both décor and lighting into the hallway, allowing you to tackle two birds with one stone.   

     

    Place a Full Length Mirror Near the Lighting Source

    What’s a homeowner to do when the dark room doesn’t have a window? Don’t worry – you’re not out of luck. If the space you’re looking to brighten has zero lighting, it’s time to bring in a large mirror to counterbalance the lack of lighting.

    Place a full length mirror near the lighting source, whether it’s a table lamp or fireplace, being careful not to place it directly in front or across from it. This will allow the large standing mirror to act as another source of lighting, without the electrical work and high cost. Plus, it’ll instantly brighten and invigorate the space.

     

    Swap Out Regular Shelves for Integral Shelved Mirrors

    One of our favourite interior design hacks that can brighten a dark room is using integral shelved mirrors. This is a particularly helpful interior trick if you have minimal space and don’t have any extra room to add in mirrors.

    Integral Shelved Mirrors are dual-purpose. They are – you guessed it, shelves but the mirror backing reflects not only the items you place on the shelves but also, the natural lighting. This allows the shelves to look larger, while also adding a boost of light into the entire room.  

     

    Hang Mirrors on the Door

    Doors are often left untouched within homes which presents you with the perfect opportunity to spice them up for added light and style. However, the trick is to make sure the large mirror you hang on the door is installed properly so it doesn’t fall off every time you close the door.

    We suggest using our full length window pane door mirror, as it’ll add a striking and dramatic appeal into the room, while also creating the illusion of an additional window.
