Buyer's Guides - Add some mirror magic

Add some mirror magic

Posted on May 14, 2015 by Daniel B | 0 comments
Mirrors are great pieces of furniture that can do a lot for a room aesthetically. When strategically placed, mirrors can enlarge a room, and the illusion has been rendered effective enough for numerous business establishments who are short on space. 

Aside from being good for creating the illusion of space, mirrors in themselves can also be decorative. In fact, many companies have taken to stylizing mirror frames in different, unique designs. The mirror frame is usually a good venue of creativity, as they can be used to accent patterns—anything from classic curlicues to much more modern zig zags and geometric designs. Mirrors can also come in several shapes, from rectangular floor lengths to circular vanity mirrors. 

Floor mirrors are used both residentially and commercially. For instance, in shoe stores, floor mirrors help highlight shoe fits and other great products. Wall mirrors serve a more functional purpose, especially in bedrooms and bathrooms. In addition, they also play a part in funhouses, or eccentrically themed buildings, where they lend a surreal air brought about by ingenious plays on reflection. 

Decorative mirrors are used primarily to add an extra sense of beauty to a place. They can also serve functional purposes, such as vanity mirrors in the hallway with shiny silver finishes. Whether you need to make a place look bigger or prettier, a strategic placement of mirrors can go a long way in changing the overall ambiance of your home.

Buyer's Guides - Restoration Style Tips
Restoration Style was derived from Charles II after he was restored to the throne of England in 1660. During this period a big richness was noted in English design, architecture and art. Upon his return from the Netherlands and France he and his followers brought with them the latest European styles. 

Take a trip back to 1920's Venice with delicate milk glass sconces in your powder room, or the regal elegance of an embellished Victorian crystal chandelier in your staircase or foyer. Bring a taste of medieval Europe to your dining room with a dramatic round iron chandelier. Most Vintage style collections span throughout time including ceiling lights, pendants, sconces, chandeliers and bathroom fixtures, as well as floor lamps and table lamps.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?

Consider the Bulb
Be sure you have 2-3 inch separation from bulb to shade, especially for higher wattage bulbs. Be sure the top opening is wide enough to vent the heat. Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for most lamps because they burn cooler, but you may need larger harp since CFL's are taller than standard light bulbs.

Buyer's Guides - Book Reading Lights
Book lights are important if you want to keep your vision healthy over the years. Position your lamps and other lighting sources in such a way that it reflects directly onto the page without creating shadows.
