Decorating Tips For A French Mirror

By Richard B. Ramirez

A French mirror can add a lot of character to any space. It can be the focal point of your room. This is actually important if you live in an area where you don’t have a lot of architectural details. This is particularly true in brand new construction homes. You might want an old world or elegant feel but you don’t want to replace your furniture. Instead, you can only add accessories to give a very important look into your space.

You could try this style in the bathroom. Of course, you won’t have all of the storage of the medicine cabinet. However, these French mirrors are quite large. That means that it can actually help open up your space and give a sophisticated and luxurious feeling. It might even make a little room feel bigger. This is a great option if you can’t afford an entire remodel but you do want a different look. You could actually re-create the same look if you have a wall of mirrors. You could only frame it out with a lot of molding and carvings and then consider a worn painted finish. This is an affordable project that really does have a big impact and ensures that you get a custom look.

Another area where this can actually shine is on furniture. You can give more importance to the piece and it is still very functional. You could create the effect of a dressing table or a vanity only by hanging a mirror over a small desk. This can be a workstation or only an area where you get ready in the morning. The accessories will have higher style, but it is inexpensive. You can often find these reclaimed pieces at thrift stores. It used to be that almost any dresser would come with one of these pieces on top. This is also true of antique furniture. It’s a way to get inexpensive pieces that still have a lot of character and style and are made of different materials and with different craftsmanship and quality than what you would find in most furniture stores today.

You can also add a lot of these items to your hallway. This is great if you have any spaces in your home that don’t have windows or they only lack a lot of light. This is also a fine choice for claustrophobic feeling spaces. Just adding in a mirror can make things look and brighter. You can use it in the place of artwork if you are shallow on space and it can be functional as nicely as beautiful. Just the frame can drive home the theme.
