How to hang decorative mirrors?

Decorative mirrors are used for various purposes, two of which are giving a room a special look and a larger size. To achieve these goals you need to know how to properly hang a mirror. To hang properly is not only to give depth to a room, but also to make it look like a work of art.
Ideally, decorative mirrors are hung in such a way as to reflect something interesting. Decorators usually make sure that mirrors reflect art collections, vases of flowers or nature. In the placement of mirrors to achieve such goals, you must have some creative impulse. Such mirrors imply that objects will be visible from various directions. If you like nature, think over the location of the mirrors, so that the view of nature on the street moves into your room. Obviously, such use is not recommended for mirrors in which you look and evaluate your reflection.
As for security, of course, it should be in the first place. No matter how small the decorative mirror looks like, always remember that they are heavier than they seem. To ensure their stability in place and minimize the risk of their falling, use sturdy studs to secure them. If in doubt, go to the hardware store and buy a few molly bolts, or ask a specialist for help.
Mirrors should be hung at eye level to make it easier to see your image. Mirrors installed for consumer purposes are ideal for placement in bathrooms, dressing rooms or hallways. These are the places where people, dressed, usually evaluate their reflection.
Create a spectacular look, contrasting the mirror with your decor. If your style is modern, then add a bold accent by hanging an antique decorative mirror in the room. For an elaborate style, the simplest mirror will be suitable as a basic detail in order to dilute this style. The placement of mirrors of different sizes in any places also gives a special character to the room.
Placing the light source in front of the mirror gives the impression of greater illumination. In small rooms, it actually adds brightness, as the light is reflected back. Hanging mirrors in small bathrooms and hallways are ideal for creating this kind of effect. You can also think about placing photos around a decorative mirror to create beautiful scenes or a genre picture.
