Dining room mirrors can enhance the ambience and play of candlelight, increase the feeling of space and light, create drama or accentuate a view. The dining room provides a great opportunity to try something a little more daring.
Where to position your dining room mirror?
A blank wall makes a perfect placement for a large dining room wall mirror, either opposite a window for greater light, or a connecting doorway for a feeling of space. Two ornate mirrors either side of a fireplace creates a pleasing symmetry and allows a chandelier or piece of art to take centre stage. Alternatively, a decorative feature mirror will give a plainer room a focal point.
Dining room mirror ideas
You have so many choices here. A multifaceted mirror creates lovely plays of light. A series of wall mirrors, a trio works well, can transform a blank wall. Either positioned closely for greater sense of space, or interspersed with wall lights or candle sconces. Window-style mirrors, in metal, wood or stone, make great decorative mirrors for a dining room and create a wonderfully cost effective trompe l'oeil effect.
How to hang your dining room mirror
