Finding the perfect piece of artwork for a room can be an almighty task and it can take months to find something that matches the styling, colours and features of the décor and can also be extremely expensive. This is why many people are now considering the use of mirrors as an alternative. Manufacturers have picked up on this trend and rather than simply designing mirrors for their functional capabilities, are now using reflective glass to create stunning pieces of art. Coming in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, the benefits of using mirrors as art are phenomenal. Not only do they reflect the colours of the room, but they also glisten and sparkle if positioned in a way that catches light. Mirrors as art can take many different forms. It may be that the amounts of actual reflect glass used is minimal and it is the frame that creates the masterpiece, or in complete contrast the mirror may not have a frame at all and could be made from multiple glass fragments  (known as multi-facet mirrors) or cut to leave stunning bevels and patterns. With so much detail and crafting involved, you could be forgiven for assuming that this type of artwork would be costly, but rest assured that as it becomes increasing popular and manufacturers are able to produce large batch orders, in many cases they are cheaper than more traditional center pieces. Most people use art to create a feature or focal point within their room, for example using paintings, canvases or photographs in a hallway, on the wall above a bed, over a fireplace or mantle piece and this is exactly where a mirror could take pride of place. Much like ‘photo walls’ and more conventional art forms,  mirrors do not have to be used in isolation and using more than one mirror can create intrigue or a larger display. What’s more, if you decide to change the colour scheme of your room, in the majority of cases you would need to buy new artwork to match, whereas with a mirror it would simply reflect the new pallet. So, next time you redecorate; why not consider using mirrors as art. With a huge variety of shapes, sizes and ‘topics’, it could make finding that perfect piece of artwork a whole lot easier and is certainly more accessible.
