Mirrors – An Integral Part of Bathroom Furniture

Mirrors are one of the most important bathroom accessories you need in bathroom furniture. The right kind of the mirror, chosen to match the size of the vanity in proportion to the size of the bathroom in matching color combination to other bathroom furniture and in aesthetic harmony with the bathroom decor is a very important and essential investment. You need to consider an expert decorator/designer for advice about such an important part of bathroom furniture.

Beautiful mirrors and lightings go hand-in-hand. Not only well-lit mirrors will enhance the look of the bathroom and add to the beauty of bathroom furniture, it will light up the whole room by reflecting the artificial and natural light. The mirrors add ambiance and space to the room making it look luxurious and gracious. A good quality mirror, mounted at the correct height, with proper light can complete the bathroom decor perfectly.Once you have renovated the entire bathroom or replaced the vanity, you should think about going for some gorgeous looking mirrors and lightings to showcase the new vanity that you have fixed. It should be noted that the width and length of the mirror should be in correct proportion to the vanity you have installed. It should match the vanity in finish, color and decor. Otherwise, there will be an unbalanced and inharmonious look to the whole setting.

Gone are the days when any old mirror can serve as bathroom mirrors. They should be of good quality, distortion-free and should provide a clear reflection so that the everyday tasks like shaving, brushing, making-up and other beauty-regimen details can be done perfectly. Angled mirrors in sets of three can be a value addition to your bathroom. Placing two mirrors opposite each other can help in adding depth to the room. For many of us, bathroom is just more than a utilitarian place in the house. The bathroom becomes a very private place – a kind of a retreat – where you can relax with a book, where you can make a bad-hair day in to a manageable-hair day, where you will tease a tendril to curl just right and the mascara applied to great effect. A well-furnished and well-lit bathroom is where the sleeping beauty in you gets awakened.

A decorative-looking mirror in gold leaf pattern, a funky-looking framed mirror, an elegantly etched mirror – all add beauty to your bathroom decor. So consult your furniture expert to customize the mirror to just suit your likes and the needs of your bathroom decor. Enjoy the comfort of excellent mirrors every day.

Dining areas need storage area to keep the extra cutlery and crockery as well extra serving dishes that you may not use on a daily basis. Even if you do not have a separate dining room, you will need storage cabinets near dining area without fail.

Sometimes instead of a mirror, a beautiful painting, wall art or artifact can be suspended over the console table.

Sideboards can have shelves with doors or pull-out drawers. Some sideboards are specially made with bow fronts, and special carved details in the corners or in the center. Some of them have additional glamour with gilded designs and special carvings etc.
