Decorating With Modern, Black-Framed Mirrors

Just like wall art, the right frame can help a mirror stand out, giving it a compelling and artistic look. For contemporary or evolving interior themes, the understated elegance of a robust black mirror frame can provide a stable focal point that pairs well with multiple color schemes and styles. Paired here with warm wood and a woven chair, the result of decorating with mirrors is an inviting transitional design with a subtle contrast.  

Focus on the Details When Decorating With Mirrors

Look for mirrors with artisan details to add a touch of elegance to your design. From antique designs with opulent curves to more modern frames with textured edges, there are a wide variety of mirror frame styles to choose from, allowing you to add subtle details that fit cohesively into your overall design.  

Explore Unique Mirror Shapes

While rectangular mirrors are a timeless choice, unique shapes give you an opportunity to express your personal style and create a look that stands out. From ovals and circles to pill-shaped bathroom mirrors, the right shape can add something special to your room’s aesthetic.  

Decorating With Lighted Mirrors

For spaces where natural light is limited, bathroom mirrors with lights may be just the thing to shed a little extra illumination on your daily routines, from applying makeup to shaving. Fitting flawlessly into modern designs, lighted mirrors are both stylish and practical, giving your bathroom a sophisticated look and providing all the extra light you need.

Decorating With Mirrors and Light Fixtures

Create a Softer Feel With Wood-Framed Mirrors

Round mirrors pair well with rounded floating vanities, establishing a sense of warmth and gentleness. Soften your room’s design with an oval or circular mirror, whether a wood-framed option, like this one that adds to the welcoming feel of this room, or a metal-framed mirror for a more modern sensibility.  

Add a Touch of Gold

Incorporating gold infuses a room with a touch of luxury. If you’re wondering how to decorate a wall with mirrors, a gold frame adds a bit of glimmering style to your design, effortlessly matching with other gold accents and adding a reflective touch that brightens the space.  

Match With Surrounding Furniture

When you decorate, mirrors with different textures add visual interest to your interior design. Play with various materials and find ways to embrace texture. The metal corners on this chic mirror add a modern industrial look to the room, while the gold accents around the frame mesh well with the gooseneck faucets on the sinks.

Reflect Light With a Triptych Mirror

A paneled mirror or medicine cabinet is an elegant look for your bathroom, and this design can make the space feel larger and more open. Add some opulent lighting and a stylish cabinet to help your vanity feel less like an area to get ready in the morning and more like a luxurious dressing room.  

Experiment With a Contoured Mirror

Mid-century modern designs are extremely popular with their unique shapes and focus on asymmetrical patterns and fun decorative touches. Create a funky and visually striking design while decorating with mirrors by using unique shapes. Pair a contoured mirror with houseplants and carefully chosen wall art to show off your bolder side.  

Round Out Your Design

In a room full of furniture with sharp edges, a round or oval mirror can add a sense of softness, drawing focus and creating visual interest. From bathrooms to living room decoration with mirrors, choose a material for the frame that pairs well with the finishes throughout the rest of the room to create a cohesive result.

Who says you can only have one mirror in a space? Take the gallery wall concept to a new level by using lighted mirrors of different shapes and sizes. The resulting design is an intriguing and elegant concept that brings more light and reflection into the room.  

Use Matte Frames for a Subtle Contrast

If your space has a modern, monochrome, or minimalist aesthetic, consider contrasting reflective faucets with matte black mirror frames. Opt for a lighted mirror for additional task lighting.  

Keep It Simple and Classy

A mirror with a simple frame can be the best addition to complete any room’s wall décor. Whether paired with multiple pieces on a gallery wall or serving as the single centerpiece to draw the eye, a simple mirror is sometimes all you need.  

Match Mirror Frames and Room Fixtures

To create a natural flow in your room design when decorating with mirrors, consider matching the frames to other small elements in the room, like faucets, light fixtures, or décor. Doing so creates a sense of cohesion that allows you to be more adventurous and playful in other parts of your design.  

Decorating With Multiple Mirrors

There’s no rule against using multiple mirrors in your interior décor, and even overlapping mirrors with one another can offer a compelling and original look. Explore various dimensions and contours of mirrors to gracefully introduce more natural illumination and create a design that truly strikes a chord.  

FAQs About Decorating With Mirrors  

Should mirrors only be used for practical purposes?

The great thing about decorating with mirrors is that they can be either functional or stylish—or both. While bathroom mirrors tend to have a specific purpose, you can also add decorative mirrors to any space. Elegant frames and unique shapes can be the perfect final touch to your design.  

Can I use mirrors in a small room?

Absolutely. Mirrors masterfully enhance the perception of space in more intimate settings, gracefully amplifying light. Consider hanging a mirror across from a window for the most impact.
