Hanging mirrors to decorate your home can give amazing results, but mirrors need to be hung by a professional picture and mirror hanger as they can do a lot of damage to your home and anyone that is nearby if a mirror falls. The best looking mirror can be spoilt if it not hung correctly, if the mirror is crooked, hung too high or hung too low, the visual effect of the mirror is spoilt. Mirrors hung on the walls of your home can be used in so many ways, if you have a corner in a room or a hallway that is dark, hanging a mirror strategically to reflect the light from a window can brighten the area. Mirrors can also be used to give the impression that a room is larger than what it is. Hanging a large mirror in a small room can give the illusion that the room is twice as big as what it really is.

There are several new trends for mirror decorating that have emerged recently.

Pendant Mirrors

Pendant Mirrors can be hung to great affect either hanging on their own or in groups of various sizes. The new trend is to have a round mirror with a very thin wooden frame hung by a leather strap which is attached on either side of the mirror, giving the look of a pendant. These types of mirrors look great hung in groups of three or one larger mirror hung on its own.

Tinted Mirrors

The current trend of using metallic for home décor has followed through to rose gold, copper, gold and silver being used in mirrors. The use of these tones has not only been used for the frames but now the actual mirror itself is being tinted and the effect is really eye catching. A new look is where the mirror has a much textured metallic frame in one of the above tones and then the mirror is tinted as well.

Big and Bold

Big and Bold mirrors have become very popular, the use of a large mirror can really make a statement. Mirrors are no longer just rectangular or square in shape with a frame; the trend is now to have amazing frameless mirrors in every shape and texture imaginable. The new frameless mirrors really look amazing, they come in all shapes and sizes, some look like the sun and others give the look of being three dimensional.
