Neutral mirror decor ideas to brighten your room. Give your room a brighter look and more spacious feel with an accent mirror in neutral shades. The neutral decor has never been more popular than it is today.
In today’s post, we are sharing styling ideas with neutral accent mirrors. This includes mirrors in round, square, arched, and rectangular shapes that can be styled throughout the home.
If you are undecided whether to use a round or square mirror, then consider the room you want to use the mirror in. Use a round wall mirror when you only want a single mirror for a space. Display square, rectangular, or arched mirrors when you want a group of mirrors on a wall or mantel shelf.
On Trend Mirrors – Neutral Mirror Decor Ideas
Big-sized mirrors, round mirrors, and especially hanging round mirrors with straps are popular today. Hanging mirrors using chains, beads, straps, and rope are a few of the materials used to hang mirrors on a wall. In the image above, the Aucoin Mirror is hung by a chain. Another trend in mirrors is those in the shape of a rhombus or a series of smaller mirrors in various sizes. In the image below, see the Modern Rhombus Cutout Mirror. Also popular are many other mirror designs.
The one thing that remains constant is that round mirrors are always popular and in style. Circular mirrors lend themselves to many decor styles. These include an industrial, mid-century modern, neutral, farmhouse, glam, and more. What does change is the mirror’s frame style. For instance, a coastal wall round mirror might have a rattan, rope, or distressed finished frame. A mid-century modern or industrial mirror might have a thin metal frame.
Mirrors that are shaped round act as the focal point of the room. Your eye is drawn to that space as you enter the room. A round-shaped mirror is always popular. What does change in a round mirror is the frame, based on the decor style it is intended for. And of course, round mirrors work well in an entryway, hall, bathroom, over a dressing table, or living room.
Select the Right Mirror Size – Neutral Mirror Decor Ideas
Once you’ve decided on the mirror for your room, you’ll need to know what size to order. As a general rule, the mirror should be smaller than the furniture it is hanging over. For example, hang a 42 to 44-inch mirror over a console, vanity, or table with a length of 48-inches. When using a single mirror over a console or table, go for a narrower-sized mirror. Some recommend that a rectangular mirror size should be between one-third to one-fourth smaller than the width of the furniture piece below it.
Hang a single mirror over a mantel shelf, that is narrower than the mantel shelf itself. When either hanging or using several mirrors that are resting on the mantel shelf use smaller mirrors in different sizes. Mix the mirror shapes and sizes to create a blended effect. This will also create a visually interesting mantel space. Hang a single mirror so that the bottom is about 6 inches above the mantel shelf.
Use a round mirror that is about one-third smaller that the length of the mantel. The depth of a mantel is about 7 inches. If your mantel is about 72 inches long, then a 48-inch round mirror would look good. This is an approximation. Ultimately it is your decor style and needs that determine the right size of mirror for your mantel. Just keep in mind that it is important to have a balance between the mantel and mirror.
The range of sizes for a round mirror begins at 16 inches and goes beyond 36 inches. The more commonly used sizes of round mirrors are 24, 32, and 36 inches wide. The range of sizes for a rectangular mirror begins at 30 by 20 inches and up to 40 x 30 inches and more.
Wall Decor Around a Mirror – Neutral Mirror Decor Ideas
If you are wondering whether to use wall art around a mirror, the answer is yes. However, consider what wall art you are using. Consider the size of your wall art. Wall art should not be larger than the wall mirror. Second, to create a balanced look, hang a similar-sized artwork on each side of the mirror. Hang wall art that will complement the mirror. Don’t use wall art that will compete with the wall mirror.
Use framing materials on the artwork that compliment the mirror not something that distracts from the wall mirror. Make your wall look as if the artwork and mirror were meant to be together.
For a mirrored wall, use wall art that can be attached with an adhesive material. Rather than using a nail or screw to attach the artwork to a mirrored wall, use a strong adhesive that can support the art. Select artwork that complements the mirrored wall. Stay away from any type of artwork that will distract from the mirror wall.
