Brighten Up Your Home With Antique Mirrors And Lighting
Antique mirrors and lighting can brighten up your home beautifully, in an affordable way. The very features you fell in love with while purchasing your home, for example, lots of trees for privacy and shade can sometimes turn out to be a problem as they block natural light and darken your home.
Your home could be dark for several reasons such as:
- A deeply wooded property
- Trees too close to the house
- Fewer or smaller windows
- Low ceilings
- Deep eaves
- Faux beams
- Dark paint
A dark home does not always mean expensive renovations. There are smart ways to brighten it up with stylish accessories like antique mirrors and lighting which will cost far less than adding windows, installing glass doors in between rooms or cutting down trees. Plus they add charm and pizzazz to dress up the space and are a worthwhile investment.
Here are some ways to brighten up your home with antique mirrors and lights:
- Hang a crystal/glass chandelier in the centre of the room. It will help reflect light from the windows into your home.
- Use antique table lamps instead of just relying on overhead lighting. A unique design adds a decorative element to your space and doubles up as a piece of art.
- Hang antique mirrors close together or in a pattern to resemble an artwork. They will reflect light around the room.
- Consider installing a long mirror on a large wall to make a room look wider. It is preferable to position it across from a window to reflect light inward.
- Set up floor length mirrors in hallways or nooks to give the room some depth and feeling of openness.
Tip: Consider glass décor to complete the arrangement like a mirrored antique coffee table or vase. It will give the room a larger, brighter and airier feeling.
