Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the dumbest of you all? -Anne Robinson-
Seen from one angle, a frieze of mirror tiles in the bathroom and mirrored cubes on bar counters. Also, wide vertical panels on living/dining room walls and mirrored wardrobes will definitely add an extra dimension to your home.
The wall space behind a corner bar setting can be highlighted with the use of mirror panels, some extending to cover storage cabinet. Vertical mirror panel on living room give a delusion of greater height and visually increase the ceiling level. Vertical mirror panel on dining room can sometimes end the monotony of an empty expanse of wall space. An extension of a dressing table glass can look good in the bedroom where space is on a premium.
Seen from another, an overdose of such reflective glory can turn any room into a dance studio, or, even worse, a viewing panel for egoistic guests. Use this simple guide to obtain the flawless effect.
Smoked and tinted mirror panels are of course more flattering than the plain variety, but polyester panels are a good alternative too. Besides being light weight and having a gently distorting reflective surface. They can be put up almost anywhere (This is especially useful when a wall is not quiet strong to take heavy glass).
Mirror tiles are a safe enough bet, but most people would prefer them to be in smaller dimensions because they present a more fractured image. Acrylic mirror surfaces have the advantage of being warm to the touch, so condensation problems are kept to a minimum. But they can damage easily ― the slightest bit of grit in a dust cloth will make irreparable scratching.
No matter what reflective material you use, follow the manufacturer‘s instructions to the letter, especially if thou are planning a D‐I‐Y job. If the back of a mirror is damp, its silver disintegrates. With a conventional mirror you should, wherever possible, leave a crevice between it and the wall so that aerial can circulate. Slices of thin cork are ideal for mounting mirror glass clear of a potentially wet wall.
