Mirrors provide more than just the means to determine if we’re the fairest of them all – or at least presentable enough to leave the house in the morning. One simple piece can change the entire feel of a room, provide a centerpiece for décor, or even completely alter the perception of a room’s size and space. A simple “check your look” mirror can be designed to have multiple uses, whether fun and funky or practical. Before starting the search for just the right piece to suit your space, ask yourself a few questions:
Do you want something to simply perform a plain and practical function, something to serve only as a decoration, or some combination of both?
Take stock of your home’s décor, and the place you want your new mirror to take in it. Be certain to keep that in mind when you shopping for your piece. This includes size, shape, how it will be presented, and exactly how much you want the eye to be drawn to it.
Do you want something truly off the beaten path, or a piece that’s more akin to the traditional but with a touch creative flair to help it better suit your personality? There are mirrors that run the gambit from the most basic to the wildest, offering something for every taste and need with a little effort.
Take a look at these interesting examples of available mirrors, offering an example of pieces for a wide range of preferences, from the conventional to the truly wild:
1. Reflect Non-fogging Shave Mirror & Shower head – If you’re one of those guys that just never seems to have enough time in the morning, the Reflect Shower Head offers a great way to “shave” a few minutes off your routine. The special reflective surface resists fogging, and the shower head is slightly below it so you can shower and shave at the same time.
2. Fascinating Melting Water-Themed Mirrors by Rikako Nagashimi & Hideto Hyoudou – These pieces are definitely art as much as a way to check your lipstick. Try a single one on the wall that looks like a splat, or add a few different pieces as illustrated in the photos to build an unforgettable theme for your home.
3. Garden Gate Mirror – There are endless possibilities for a mirror that is both decorative and practical, and Horchow’s catalog has a wide selection that provides a lot of great ideas. This one is reminiscent of the door to a New Orleans French Quarter Garden, giving your room the feeling that it might open into a magical world.
5. Hide your Flat-Screen TV – This one is amazing. You can camouflage your flatscreen TV in any room in your home behind a 2-way mirror.
