work into furniture, Venetian mirrored furniture was highly popular thanks to it effortless ability to

Mirrored Furniture

Rooms which face north are always a challenge to refurbish, as they get very little or sometimes no
sunlight whatsoever. Any natural light which does enter is often cold too. To alleviate this as best
you can, it’s best to avoid decorating with cold colours such as grey, and stick to warmer tones such
as yellow shades, or neutral creams. If you are pursuing more colour, then try darker and warmer
tones like purple for example.

 

The room or window size can affect the temperature too. Whites, off-whites and creamy neutrals
are available in many shades, so there is one for every example of room.

Any room can be completed to feel brighter just by painting the ceiling white so it mirrors light
instead of absorbing it. The tricky thing with some pure brilliant white emulsions is that they’re really
creamy off-white, which is not what you imagine, or need, from a product called “pure brilliant
white”. Make sure you invest in a reliable brand which can produce proper whites.

Colouring the walls and ceiling white can go a lengthy way to making a room feel lighter, but paint is
just a small part of it. One of the best ways to brighten up a kitchen is with pale, preferably white,
high-gloss unit doors, as these rebound light around the area. Glossed entrances are a decent way to
update the room and doesn’t have to be lavish.

You should also capitalise on some mirrored furniture and mirrors for the walls – mount one
opposite the window to take full advantage of the light and make the room seem larger. Mirrored
furniture will also echo light back into the room better than anything else so keep it in mind, and add
mirrors anywhere you can, especially in dimmer rooms which may have less significant windows.

Don’t forget the floor either. White painted floorings, or shiny white floor tiles in kitchens and
bathrooms, will help to jump light around.

Switching, expanding or adding windows can make a vast change but it’s a costly and disrupting
answer to the problem, and planning permission can restrict what you do. It’s more realistic an idea
to swap curtains for efficient roller blinds which also let more light in.

A drastic answer is to take away a wall. Colliding two rooms into one gives the subsequent room
additional windows and it may then profit from sunlight for most of the day if it’s now both east and
west facing.



How to Maximise Space in a Small Bedroom

How to Maximise Space in a Small Bedroom

If, like many of us, you live in a flat, apartment or small house, you may have some space issues in the bedroom.
Unfortunately, a common feature of newer properties and city apartments is that they tend to have smaller
bedrooms than we may like. Once you’ve added a bed and some storage for your clothes, you may find that there
isn’t much space left for anything else.

If this sounds like a problem you’re living with then it’s time to get creative with your interior design and bedroom
furniture, because having a small bedroom shouldn’t mean you have to compromise on light and luxury.

Choose your furniture carefully

It’s the essential pieces of furniture in a bedroom which take up most of the space, but you still need a bed,
bedside tables, a wardrobe and other storage solutions. The key to choosing these though is not to buy bigger
than you need and make sure that your bedroom furniture is working for you. So for example, mirrored bedroom
furniture helps to maximise light, a built in wardrobe saves space in awkwardly shaped rooms and beds with
inbuilt storage will save on floor space.

Consider mirrored bedroom furniture

An interior designers dream, mirrored bedroom furniture is the ideal solution for maximising space and light in
small or dark bedrooms. With the simple addition of a few key pieces of mirrored bedroom furniture, such as a
dressing table or chest of drawers, your bedroom will be filled with light when you open the curtains in the
morning. They will also reflect candles and soft lighting in the evenings, not only making your room feel bigger,
but helping to create a romantic and classy aesthetic as well.

The addition of mirrors on the walls or mirrored wardrobes will also work with mirrored bedroom furniture to
help solve particularly dark and small rooms.

Tricks to maximise light

Without knocking down walls, you probably can’t physically make your bedroom any bigger. But there are many
simple things you can do to play with light to give the impression of a larger room. Light and fresh colours on the
walls help to expand the room (reds and dark colours draw the light in and make a room look smaller), mirrors
and mirrored bedroom furniture maximise light, and a feature wall or painting will draw the eye away from the
size of the room.

Keep your design simple

If you have a small bedroom, stay away from overly fussy or ornate furniture. Keep your pieces contemporary,
minimal and matching. The modern finish to mirrored bedroom furniture, for example, or the clean lines of a
contemporary wooden bed frame will help keep your room uncluttered without compromising on style.

Your bedroom should be a haven of peace and relaxation. And no matter what the size of your bedroom, this can
always be achieved with some careful planning and the right ‘key’ pieces, such as mirrored bedroom furniture,
space saving storage solutions and a coat of paint.



Italian Mirror Bedroom Furniture

Italian Mirror Bedroom Furniture

At Homes Direct we have an extensive range of mirrored bedroom furniture to suit your every
bedroom need.

All of your mirrored furniture will really brighten up your morning when you open the curtains to
find the amount of light within the room has doubled, and it looks almost twice as large as before.
For once, you may prefer the view inside the house than outside it.

As standard, mirrored furniture is Italian in its roots. However, in the 17th century, many of its
citizens left the country and migrated to France where the style began to gain popularity. Therefore
in keeping with this tradition we have out two distinct styles: Italian, and French.

Our Italian range is also broken down further into Rimini, Florence, and Romano due to the sheer
amount of styles coming from all these parts of Italy. This mirrored bedroom furniture range is the
ultimate choice for anybody who’s even the slightest bit interested in the light designs, and for
people who want to bring out, and accentuate the features their bedroom may already have.

Mirrored bedroom furniture is a very efficient, and cheaper way of adding more light to an existing
room. This is of course when compared to adding lights to the room which can take up more space,
which may be sorely needed by some rooms. Here you could simply replace your existing furniture
with this range, and give the perception of a deeper room, solving both problems at once.

The French style is very distinctive in design. It looks simple, clean, and is only going to literally
reflect whatever you have in your bedroom. Within the collection of our bedroom furniture, you’ll
find both classic and antique designs, alongside our modern and contemporary designs. This range
gives anyone the ability to create their own style and find something which suits their requirements.



Light up your home with mirrored furniture

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!

Mirrored storage

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
much.
