Mirrored glass is characterised by its reflective layer. This is usually used on one side in order to create a specific aesthetic, with a variety of functions, that can help you to transform your home. Mirrored glass is extremely versatile and can have many uses around your home, including:
Illusion of space
Mirrored glass is perfect for small spaces such as cramped bathrooms. Fitting a mirror can make a compact space appear much larger due to its reflective ability. If you have a narrow hallway you should hang two vertical mirrors alongside each other to give the illusion of a wider space, whilst floor-length mirror glass should be used in bedrooms to make them appear expansive.
Upgrade your space
You can enhance any room in your house by simply hanging a mirror – it can be used as a focal point on your bedroom dresser. You could even use the reflective features of mirrored glass to highlight key ornaments or fittings in your living room, enhancing the appearance of your living space.
Brighten your home
Mirrored glass is perfect for a dull or poorly lit room that requires a boost, especially if you hang a mirror opposite a window, as this will automatically reflect natural light into the room. You can also reduce your energy bills through strategic placement of mirrored glass, as mirrors reflect natural light, which means you can reduce artificial light usage and cut down on electricity costs.
If you find a rip in your wallpaper or a dent in your cupboard door, you could easily conceal these imperfections by using mirrored glass as a cover-up. Mirrored glass is a simpler alternative to paintings or other wall decorations, as they may not fit your colour scheme. Mirrored glass is extremely adaptable and can blend in with various designs.
