At first blush, mirrors might not seem like art. You brush your teeth in them and sometimes doodle funny faces when they steam up. Hardly glamorous things! But what if you should encounter—horror of horrors—the dreaded “bald spot” on your wall? True, negative space has its uses, but other times that white maw of emptiness makes for a sparse-looking wall. If the space is too narrow to accommodate the usual painting or tapestry, it might be time to give mirrors a second glance—specifically, panel mirrors.
Panel wall mirrors are longer than they are wide, the perfect skinny space solutions! Besides taking up space, beveled mirrors provide an illusion of depth and can amplify the perceived size of a room. More than that, they’re fun. Position your panel mirror so that is reflects glittering candlelight, a breathtaking painting, or a slice of sky. Be creative! The fun of panel mirrors is that they play directly off your own unique home accents.
Align a row of beveled mirrors along the wall for an unexpected scene. The elongated shapes side-by-side create the illusion of one large mirror fragmented by space, a stunning effect that your run-of-the-mill tapestry is unlikely to replicate!
Finally, panel mirrors can blend with any and all types of decor; the frame is key. The Anisah Panel Mirror Set, with its ornate arches and two finish options, is ideal for decor with an Arabesque spin.
A romantic theme is complemented by the flower and leaf embellishments of the Britannia Panel Mirror.
If there is an Asian influence in your decor, the Ginkgo Panel Mirror is the obvious choice.
The creative possibilities a simple panel mirror affords you are endless. In other words, don’t just fill that boring space—fill it with intent!
