Design Tips - Glossy and Reflective Surfaces

Another way of multiplication of light is the use of glossy and reflective surfaces. It is not necessary for them to be mirrors - they might also be: 
  • framed pictures, 
  • chromed metals, 
  • candle holders, 
  • plasma TV, 
  • decorative elements

Here are some tricks and advice that you can use to complement to the design of your space: 
  • Mirrors and reflective surfaces multiply light. This is the reason it is a good idea to position them facing towards lighter areas or light sources in order to bring in more light into your room
  • They optically increase distance, so it is appropriate to be put parallel to the dimension that needs to be increased. 
  • If you bend a large mirror with a heavy frame on the wall, it will "catch" the ceiling which will bring in visual interest to the space
In case that you are experiencing troubles to hang your heavy mirrors or any of the decorations that you might have, do not hesitate to contact Express Handyman! We can also send you a designer for a personalized consultation which can make your interior even better!
