I was looking for something to put on top of my fireplace in my living room the other day when I discovered this great idea of additional mirror over fireplace to add some energy and depth ambience of revealing the best feature from the reflection of the mirror.
To some people who are into this thing of nature elements, mirror has a water element and to put them on top of fire element which carried by the fireplace is an ideal solution to bring the balance to the room so the side affect of over heated fire element can be adjusted with the present of water element mirror over fireplace. Design wise, this has been used and considered one of the longstanding design concepts of living room interior.
To some degree, using mirror over fireplace considered as timeless design which means this can support traditional look or modern touch of interior design, because it just works for both sides of the world. Mirror can reflect the best features of items and parts in your room and the right positioning of mirror can enhance the ambience and add depth reflection of good things you have in your room.
So, what I suggest is, don’t be scared with mirror, especially with smaller size of room because this adds up some space reflection and will seems to enlarge the space in the room by using the right big mirror on the wall for an example.
What mirror to hang and what size of mirror that we need to use is all depends on the condition and size of your room it self. Large mirror create a spacious effect by extending the view. And by having large mirror over fireplace it will disappear the empty wall space on top of the fireplace and reflecting back the best features in front of it.
There are many sizes and style of mirror frame that you can chose from to add up the good reflection by positioned the mirror over fireplace in your house. This is significantly creates additional space reflection and this will certainly do good to the smaller size of room, although this also does not mean this won’t work on the larger size of room too.
Often people get distracted by using only rectangular shape of mirror but actually oval shaped mirror with beveled surrounding frame will definitely do a good thing by adding some classic ambience into the room it placed.
