Captivating pieces that allow your sense of style to shine through. While seemingly simple in function, mirrors are stylish pieces of home décor that make a big difference. Through the clever placement of mirrors, homeowners can enliven walls, add fresh focal points and brighten up rooms. “Mirrors add personality to a room,” says Jeff Dross, Kichler’s corporate director of education and industry trends. “Pairing mirrors with different lamps and light fixtures is the easiest way to update a room, whether a makeover or full-blown remodel are on the agenda.” Mirrors also help to enlarge a living area by extending the visual depth of a space. “Mirrors open up a room and give breathing room to slender halls,” added Dross. “While they add to the aesthetics of a room, they can also multiply the light when paired with a table or buffet lamp. It really is a win-win!” The style of mirrors today has changed since they reemerged as a trend-forward home accessory. Gone is the simply framed circle or rectangle. Now, the design is extended to include framing that blends with current furniture and accessory trends. Mirrors can feature beveling, crazing, tinting and silvering. The surrounds are finished in the desired metallic such as Chrome and Brushed Nickel along with the more subtle bronzes and brasses. Faux textures, such as leather and other skins are also popular. In the 1950s and 1960s, mirrors were at a desirable peak. Now that mid-century styles are being re-imagined, mirrors are back and ready to serve again, this time to a new generation of buyers.As new home construction gets back on track to the levels needed to meet the demands of first-time home-buyers, the homes will be smaller. Adding mirrors will be one way to avoid the confining space and up the ante on good looks and good taste.
