Nothing makes an impression like and impressive mirror. Using mirrors in a big way can make a space come alive. Size is often key. You have to think about how the mirror will interact with the rest of the space, as well as how well it is filling the space in which it is placed. A big mirror will really open up a space. Check out how these spaces use mirrors in a big way.
The Mirrored Wall
Mirrored walls are no longer a thing of the past. Everything comes back around, bigger and BETTER than before! Not so sure? These pictures will surely convince you.
The Wall Leaner
Have you heard? The thing these days is to let your GIANT mirror just sit on the floor and lean on the wall. Less stress on you trying to put it up, less stress on the wall trying to hold it up, and it looks great. Win WIN.
Flank a doorway, flank a bed, flank a fireplace! And don’t worry, you can still place things in front of the mirror!
The Back Splash
Yes, you read it right, back splash, like in your kitchen!
Simple and Big
Nothing says “modern” like the look and feel of acrylic (A.K.A. Lucite or Plexiglass). The clear simplicity of the material invokes a sense of science fiction, like a scene from Blade Runner or Back to the Future Part II. This has allowed it to stay in popular design ever since its introduction in the 1930s. However, acrylic’s inherent versatility allows it to work with any design style, not just modern.
In visual terms, clear acrylic can work with any color scheme. In rooms dominated by colorful patterns, acrylic accents are great because they don’t take up any extra visual space.
Acrylic is almost impossible to break on accident, making it perfect for shelving and storage. As a plus, it’s easy to clean. Keep in mind. you might be tempted to use a glass cleaner like Windex, you should stick to using only plastic cleaner and microfiber cloth on acrylic surfaces. Keeping acrylic clean will also compel you to keep what’s on or in it nice and organized (or fashionably unorganized).
Going simple never means compromising the quality of design. In fact, simplicity is a strong trait of the, continually rising in popularity, transitional style, which pairs traditional and contemporary styles together. With the transitional style we have seen a real shift from the more traditional and ornate cabinet door styles to doors that are a little more simple. A simpler door style is more versatile. As design trends come and go, the cabinets will withstand the changes. And the plus side? Less intricacies equals less nooks and crannies to scrub clean! Here are some simple door styles that make the best impressions!
These days it seems like beds are at an all time low. Many mattresses no longer require a boxspring, and some modern bed frames rest only a few inches above the floor. Some consider this trend inconvenient – who wants to squat that low just to get in and out of bed? Others see it as an innovative and sometimes necessary design choice.
For rooms with lower ceilings, a lower bed is an obvious choice, but even in a room with a higher ceiling, lowering the bed is a simple and stylish way to free up some wall space for decoration.
In terms of practicality, lower bed frames can be used for extra storage space and even upgraded to house power outlets and USB ports.
Whether for convenience or aesthetic, low beds are catching on. If you choose to feature a low bed in your bedroom, make sure the rest of your furniture fits proportionally.
