Creative work: mirrors in the interior


In fact, the fashion for a large numberMirrors, designed to expand the space, comes to naught. Decorators, designers and, most importantly, psychologists in full trumpet that everything is good in moderation. So, the Dutch scientists conducted an experiment to study the effect of mirrors on the success of women training in the gym, and found that after classes they were feeling sick and in a bad mood.



It is believed that a child of up to a year (or even up to threeYears) should not look at all in the mirror (it will stop growing, start stuttering, teeth will not grow, etc.). Of course, these are extremes, but there is a rational grain here. In any case, it is not necessary to hang a mirror in the children's room, even with a young princess.

It would seem that this is obvious, but someExtreme "designers" and here they try to expand a small space with the help of mirrors. Of course, this design is on the verge of a foul, even when you use a mirror tile.


Living room

Forget about the ceremonial halls of Russian estates, after all,Their hosts were many other rooms, and the halls they used only for balls. Do not try to use the abundance of mirrors to turn your living room into a branch of the royal palace. Equally weary for you will be fashionable now design solutions like the desire to "move the wall" (a mirror to the wall) or "storyboards" (square mirrors in a line along the entire wall).


In the bedroom with mirrors you need to be especiallyAttentive. First, they are advised to keep away from the sleeper (so that the negative emotions released in the dream are not returned). Secondly, you should know that psychologists have long rejected the "toy" called the mirror ceiling above the bed of love.


Entrance hall

This place is in a house where we do not stay long. Here, the creative work on placing mirrors can unfold in full. Here you can at least make all the walls mirror. But you can expand the room and without any extreme: for example, an oval, vertically stretched mirror visually increases the height of the ceilings, and a mirror, located horizontally, will expand the wall on which it hangs.


Here the mirror has only one strictly definedPlace - over the sink. The rest of the mirrors can be anywhere and anything. The only reasonable limitation is the mirror (or mirror tile) in the shower zone.


Mirror light

If your apartment is too dark, you canUse mirrors as "traps" for light. Remember the appropriate section of physics and try to calculate where they should hang so that the light is multiplied. As for any other "game" with mirrors, the rules remain the same: they reflect only the light from the window or from the lamp. In extreme cases, you can afford a mirror inset on the ceiling to "double" the chandelier and increase the ceiling.

It is quite possible to use mirrors and mirrorDetails in small furniture (shelves, racks, countertops, chests of drawers, bar counters) - this will only emphasize its lightness and transparency. Some low (or high) located furniture objects can be completely mirrored - due to this, it is possible to free the interior from them. However, with "reflective" objects, it is also better not to overdo it. The main friend of the "mirror" design is common sense. Mirrors should be as long as necessary.


The Chinese attach special importance to the locationMirrors in the room, attributing to them a huge power over our positive energy ("qi"). For them, the construction of such a design is not just creative work - the mirror in the interior plays the role of a "guardian" of energy, emotions and thoughts. The teaching of feng shui strongly recommends:

Do not place a mirror in front of the entrance door (otherwise the positive energy will come out of the house, and the reflection will scare the incoming one);

Select "universal" mirrors suitable for growth to all family members (to avoid "headless" reflections or other parts of the body);

Do not use in the design of "splinters of mirrors", as well as mirror tiles and even trellis;

Do not hang mirrors against each other (so that the energy of "chi" does not stagnate and does not walk just like that).


Mirrors with sandblasted frosted coating (patterns, fragments, etc.).

Colored (and rainbow) mirrors and their compositions (stained-glass windows, mosaics).

Mirrors of unusual forms (heart, wave, figurine of an animal, etc.).

Mirrors without frame.



Buying a mirror, check it "for curvature": take a long smooth object and "paint it" on different parts of the mirror;

Make sure that there are no scratches and air bubbles on the mirror;

Inspect the rear window: the painting should be smooth;

If the mirror in the frame, be sure to investigate if it does not stagger.
