7da3f2de13d73a8e47853301a8a84fe0It’s coming up on a new year and there’s never been a better time to freshen up homes and businesses with wall mirrors. In our experience, adding them really helps set the mood and shows a willingness on the part of the building’s owner to change direction. That said, our custom mirror fabricators and installers have come up with a short list of their best tips for selecting and positioning new wall mirrors in 2015. Here it is:

Always keep the rules of Feng Shui in mind when choosing a location for your new wall mirror. The most important one is to place the mirror where it can reflect all of the great things that you want more of in your life during 2015. For instance, if you want more time with your family, place the mirror where it will reflect the images of the ones you love the most.

Furthermore, remember that a wall mirror’s best attribute is the ability to reflect light and imagery in interesting ways. Therefore, keep in mind the basic rules of reflection too. For example, flat mirrors do not alter an image but convex and concave ones do just that. Hence, that’s why mirrors in amusement parks’ fun houses traditionally look the way that they do.

Next, if you plan on hanging a new wall mirror over top of furniture, do two things. First, choose a frame that matches something about the furnishings closest to it. Second, make sure that the mirror’s size, symmetry and hanging height are in harmony with the furnishings as well. If you have any doubts about being able to achieve those things, relay those concerns to our wall mirror fabricators. They may be able to provide personalized guidance.

Similar may be said about selecting a wall mirror’s shape. Because we custom create mirrors, it is possible to go beyond the normal squares, circles, rectangles and ovals. Just be cognizant that Feng Shui principles state objects with severe angles and points should be used sparingly and only in certain situations.
