Custom mirrors for small spaces: creating the illusion of space

An image of a small space looks bigger after using the custom mirrors.

Small areas can be challenging to decorate, but you can create an illusion of space with the right tricks. One technique is using custom mirrors to your advantage. Mirrors have the power to transform smaller spaces by making them feel more spacious and luxurious. Here are some ways to create the illusion of space with a custom mirror:

  1. Multiply depth and dimension. Placing a mirror on a wall opposite a window can create the illusion of a larger space by doubling the visual depth of the room. This works best in narrow hallways or small entryways that may otherwise feel tiny and cramped.
  2. Brighten dark corners. Small rooms can often feel enclosed and confined due to poor lighting. However, mirrors can helpreflect natural and artificial light around the room, making the space feel brighter and airier.This is especially helpful in small bedrooms or living rooms with limited lighting.Placing a mirror near a lamp can help improve thelight distribution.
  3. Enhance architectural features. Mirrors can accentuate specific architectural elements and enhance the perception of space. For instance, ifyou have a small dining room with a unique archway or attractive moulding, placing a mirror adjacent to it will accentuate the feature. This will draw attention to the architectural element and make the room feel more intentional.
  4. Create the illusion of continuity. Mirrors can be used as a design element to remove visual barriers and create a smooth transition between different spaces. This is perfect for studio apartments where a mirror on a shared wall can create a seamless and open atmosphere.
  5. Reflect personal style. Mirrors are available in different shapes, sizesand frames, which makes them versatile decorative elements. Whether you prefer a sleek and modern or classic and ornate style, Verrage Glass and Mirror Inc. can create acustom mirror that perfectly complements your decor. Selecting a mirror that reflects your personality style can instantly elevate the overall appearance of your small space.

Finally, when in doubt, go big. A large mirror is ideal for compact spaces as it expands the sense of visual space.
