Some professionals believe, that by incorporating in a design decorative convex mirrors, or "special effects" mirrors that are made by using deformed sheets of polished metal, you can create a quite unique interiors.

Another popular method of decorating with mirrors - fragmentation. This method is based on arranging mirrors in certain order near each other. For example, if several long and narrow mirrors are placed near (not against) each other it will not only elongate the appearance of the wall, but also creates a comforting repetition. Reflections in the mirrors will capturer not a continues view of an interior, but fragments of it, creating a unique effect. If the same long mirrors are located in a vertical, but in an horizontal pattern it will make a wall appear wider.

One of our favorite old tricks - shelving with the mirrored back. Dingy, purely lit wall can be brought back to live with mirrored shelving. You can attach mirrors to the back of any shelving unit, and place it against the wall. Than you can decorate the shelves with your favorite crystal accessories, or other home accessories with reflective surface. This method will not only brighten up a space, but add interest to the overall room decor. By placing live plants on the shelves the amount of flowers will be doubled by they're reflection in the mirror, and you can create blooming parodies in your room.

Another decorative trick used by designers and decorators - angling mirrors. When mirrors are situated on an angle toward each other, the reflected image "brakes" into several parts, while reflected objects do not appear distorted. It creates an artistically appealing mosaic effect. This method of decorating with mirrors is widely used in a hotels, restaurants, stores, and some times incorporated into residential interiors.

Lack of lighting is a common problem these days. Dark unused corners and nooks often become a challenge to decorate. Long mirrors placed in such places will do the trick of expanding a space and bringing in more light. The combination of wall mirrors with soft lighting (indirect lighting, electrified sconces or candle sconces, candles arrangement) increases this effect.
