Light up your home with mirrored furniture
Living in a basement flat or a home which doesn’t get much natural light may mean that your house seems
quite dark and dreary at times, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are plenty of ways to bring more
light into your home and make the most of the light you do have – one of the best ways is by using mirrors
and mirrored furniture.
Light up the bedroom
The bedroom is a place to relax – a safe haven from the world where you can unwind and get a good night’s
sleep. It’s important that it is dark at night but gets plenty of light in the mornings, so if your room is always
a bit dark, consider investing in some mirrored bedroom furniture to add a little extra light. Mirrored
furniture adds a contemporary feel to any room, and it can also help to create a feeling of extra space in
small rooms or apartments.
Brighten up the lounge
Mirrored furniture such as a sideboard or table, is also a great way to inject a little extra light into your
lounge – after all, it’s the room where you spend most of your time when you’re at home. A mirrored table
can look stylish in any lounge, but particularly appealing in contemporary-styled, minimalist lounges, set
against a wooden floor and sleek leather sofa. Mirrored tables probably aren’t the best option if you have
younger children, as you don’t want sticky fingerprints everywhere.
Mirrored bathroom furniture
Mirrors have always had a place in bathrooms – you probably already have a mirrored wall cabinet or
mirror hanging above your sink. But why not take things one step further and install a mirrored cabinet at
floor level, great for storing all those bits n’ bob that don’t have anywhere else to go!
Storage cubes with a mirrored finish or ottomans with hidden storage are a great way to inject some light
into darker areas of your home such as the hallway, and they have the added benefit of keeping things
safely stored away.
It’s a good idea to start with just one or two small pieces of mirrored furniture and add to it from there,
rather than filling your whole home with mirrored pieces, which could be overwhelming! A mirrored
dresser in the bedroom and mirrored coffee table in the lounge add style and brightness without being too
