Mirror mosaic in the interior



Mirror mosaic is gaining big popularity in the interior. Mirror mosaic offers a lot of possibilities for unusual interior design and opens completely new horizons in the decor of the premises. The mirror mosaic in the interior may consist of pieces of the same shape and size or may be a mix of different pieces. Manufacturers offer a mosaic spreading, and a mosaic with sizing on a grid - you can choose the most convenient option.

The edge of the mosaic particles may have a matted or polished surface. Also, facets can be used to design the edges of a mirror mosaic. A mirror mosaic is made with additional protection, which allows you to enclose a mosaic in especially wet areas, and without protection - for dry rooms.
The use of mirror mosaics in the interior is very wide. This mosaic is great for decorating almost any room in the house, such as a kitchen or bathroom, bedroom, living room or hallway. Usually, prefabricated mirror mosaic decorative panels are used, but you can also cover whole fragments of walls, ceilings, floors with the mirror mosaic.


It is still very good to apply a glass mosaic for decorating various interior items. Vases, pillows, tables, shelves, doors, partitions - all this will get an extremely interesting sound in the interior. If you create a glass mosaic column or, for example, a niche in the room, then it will create interesting optical effects.
The mirror mosaic is very similar to a mirror tile, but, of course, it is much smaller in size: slices of a mirror mosaic are usually made in sizes of 1x1 cm, 2x2 cm, 3x3 cm, and so on. In addition, the mirror mosaic is thinner than glass or ceramic, and therefore its particles should not be very strongly pressed in a special glue.


The mirror mosaic in the interior often becomes the focus of attention, catching enthusiastic views and creating interesting effects. Giovani Glass suggest you choose such a mosaic for the interior decoration of your own apartment or house, you should not doubt: bright impressions are guaranteed.

How mirrors can change interior

Mirrored walls
The whole wall, decorated with a mirrored tile, mosaic or plates of an aged mirror, is a beautiful decorative accent. It is especially appropriate in small and poorly lit spaces. Of course, avoid a large cupboard or a very bright object near the mirror: furniture should not attract much attention. Make sure that the mirror surface is fractional: the usual mirror on the entire wall can be traumatic, and overly realistic reflection of the room will block up the interior. Well, of course, taking care of such a wall requires special patience - this is definitely an option not for lazy ones.
A set of mirrors
An excellent solution is to hang several mirrors of a moderate size instead of one large one. So, you can hang three identical horizontal or vertical mirrors on the console in the living room or in the hallway. An empty wall can be decorated with a collection of small mirrors in different frames. They will equally reflect the light, making the interior more interesting.

Mirror furniture
It is better to refuse from mirrored doors, built in the closet, but small-sized furniture with mirrored surfaces will be a great decoration of the room. Do not overdo it: bedside tables, console or dressing table will be enough. Mirror furniture is best used in interiors with light and monochrome walls and floors. So it will not get lost on the background of vivid patterns and a variety of shades.
What to avoid
We must remember that mirrors should not be put in some places. For example, in front of the front door: every time you enter the house, you will see your reflection in the mirror, and in the dark, it can create a sense of danger. Do not hang a mirror in the southern room right in front of the window: it will make the lighting too bright, and the reflection of the sun will beat in your eyes. Mirror ceiling is only suitable in a very high room and in the case if it is a decorative move on which the entire interior is constructed, but it is not good got a decoration of an apartment with a low ceiling.



Giovani Glass will offer you a wide range of mirrors and mirror elements, we can find something for everybody.

MERITS OF MIRROR TILES


Mirror tiles will give your interior extra luxury and uniqueness. Mirror tiles can be made of a mirror of any color, and diamond edges around the perimeter of the tile will make any space shine. Any mirror surface visually ‘increases’ the space, which is very important for small bathrooms. The mirror tile is not difficult in installation, is eco-friendly and is perfectly combined with any finishing materials. In addition to traditional polishing the edges of the mirrors, facet on the mirror is in great demand. Facet is one of the mirror finishing methods, it can be 10-40mm wide. A facet will give the mirrors a finished, diamond-edged look and perfectly fit into the classic interior. You can order a mirror of any size with a facet at Giovani Glass.
The merits of mirror tiles.
Fixing reliability
Using modern adhesives and competent styling technology, you can be sure of the strength of fixing tiles on the wall.
Decoration
Mirror tile looks expensive and stylish in any interior. Even with budget repair, it will look interesting. At the same time, its versatility allows mirror tiles to be perfectly combined with the traditionally luxurious wood and natural stone.

Variety of shapes, colors, and sizes.
Traditional tile has the shape of a square and a "silvery" shade of the surface. Giovani Glass make for you a tile of any size using the pattern you like.
The ability to visually expand the space.
Mirror visually ‘pulls’ the room. This advantage is particularly important when designing typical bathrooms, which, as a rule, are extremely small in size. A regular tile will enhance the impression of blank walls, and a mirror will help to eliminate the oppressive atmosphere of a closed room.
Low ceilings will ‘rise’ higher, especially if you use the effect of placing long tiles at the bottom of the wall and gradually shortening upwards.
Ability to eliminate room defects
Mirror tiles can successfully cover drawbacks of the room, and at the same time to be a fine element of decor. Thus, an absolutely unnecessary part of the room easily turns into a visual accent of the whole interior.

Composite structure
Due to the fact that the mirror panel consists of individual elements, this allows to increase its durability and facilitate repair work. Compare such a panel with a solid mirror. Suppose you messed up or destroyed a fragile mirror surface. The mirror, in this case, will definitely go to the garbage, but the damaged tile can be easily replaced without disturbing the overall composition.

Mirrors in the bathroom


There are secret design techniques that allow you to turn the most ordinary and unremarkable bathroom into an elegantly furnished room. One of them is a competent use of mirrors. For example, a mirror wall in a bathroom is a fashionable and stylish solution that attracts many homeowners. But not everyone is ready for its implementation since they consider the installation of such a wall to be very difficult.
What should be taken into account by those who are going to turn one of the bathroom walls into a large mirror? Experiments with reflective surfaces are a favorite topic of many designers. After all, it has long been known that with the help of mirrors you can create additional lighting and visually change the size of the room. This includes a nice bonus in the form of a decorative effect.

Moisture resistance is the main criterion
The usual interior mirror is not suitable for the bathroom. It needs to be moisture resistant. Otherwise, after a few months, the amalgam on its backside will begin to break down due to the specific microclimate of the bathroom.
You can use the mirror for your bathroom is the following way:
• solid mirror of large size;
• several wide mirror sheets;
• a facing tile from a mirror, having the same parameters, as a usual ceramic tile for a bathroom;
• small mirror mosaic.

Giovani Glass will help you with the design and installation of mirrors of any design.
Everybody knows about the main advantages of the mirror -it looks stylish and expensive, optically expands a small room and, under artificial light, becomes a kind of “amplifier” of light fluxes.
It is recommended to place the mirror wall in the bathroom so that it is far enough away from the bathtub or shower. The word ‘mirror’ is associated with brilliance, gloss and flawless shine, so it will often have to be cleaned. In the case of a full wall, covered with such material, this process takes a lot of time but is easy enough.

Mirrors In Your Home


Areas of use and principles for the location of mirrors
When installing a mirror, it is necessary to remember that it should be as comfortable as possible for all family members: a tall person does not have to bend down to see how a hat sits, and a short one to rise on toes in order to consider the fit of a jacket.


It is better to choose mirrors as large as possible for corridors or to have a closet with a built-in facade mirror from ceiling to floor. The figure should not be split up, a person should easily evaluate the appearance from the top of the head to the sole of the shoes, therefore the mirror should be positioned at a distance of no more than 25-30 cm from the floor. The top edge of the mirror should be at least 20 cm taller than the tallest family member.

A mirror can be used for a different purpose in living rooms, but it should reflect the room in a beneficial way. You can arrange it in such a way that the composition of the paintings on the opposite wall is clearly reflected, or it can reflect a window with a view to the garden. The classic method of positioning the mirror over the fireplace will increase the height of the room and will make it optically slightly lighter.
Sometimes a rather large mirror is placed in the bedroom opposite the bed or along it. It is not recommended to do this, the reflection may confuse and disturb you. It is better to move the mirror so that it is located at the foot of the bed, or behind its back - then it will not cause anxiety.


The mirror in the dining room is rather an exception, and such design idea is even somewhat awkward as not many people will enjoy to constantly watch the reflection of themselves and other guests while eating. But there can be another option – to decorate the area around the dining table with mirrored panels with sandblasting, facet carving or partial matting.
Giovani Glass specialists will gladly help you with mirror design and installation.
