Mirrors make one of the best decorative elements. They are good for both form and function.
There are many who strategically use the mirrors in the decor to open up the space and make it look bigger. In rooms that lack light, the mirrors can be smartly used to brighten up the space by reflecting light. And apart from this, needless to say, mirrors make one of the most essential elements in any home.
If using as a decorative element, the antique mirrors stand a class apart as antique mirrors, in whichever form, make a very aesthetically appealing inclusion in the contemporary decor. Often they are ornate and elegant and give the decor a completely different look with the air of history surrounding them. The very ornate ones especially have a very mysterious appeal around them and look dramatic.
The antique mirrors however can be in monotone of all shades brown. If you love the look and feel of antiques but with a modern twist, antique painted mirrors are what you need. With the right coloured frame these can look bright and beautiful and suit well in the contemporary decor. While the paint can add a slightly modern touch to your antique mirror, the elegance and aesthetic appeal of the olden times remains intact and can add a good dose of style to the contemporary decor.
