And many styles in between.
I like placing mirrors by the main door used to enter and exit the home. This way folks can give themselves one last check before walking out the door. This has saved me from leaving my home with lipstick on my teeth ~ YIKES! Here is one I placed in a foyer of a Bethesda, MD client ~
This vignette is completed with a stool to comfortably sit and take shoes on and off ~ a must for the winter we've been having!
One of the most important factors to be cognizant of is what the mirror is reflecting. This can even be a main factor in the design.....
In this design of mine, I placed a mirror over the mantel ~ a classic position for a mirror. This one reflects the art on the opposing wall. If you look in the mirror above, you'll see the wall below.
I must admit ~ reflecting art in my favorite. Below is my 'His and Hers' design.
His masculine lounge complete with a large scale floor mirror...
her feminine dining room full of sparkle and gorgeous art.
The sparkle and beautiful art of the dancer enjoyed in both.
With the next design, I used the large wall on the stairs to bring light to the upper level hall. When one is is the balcony area, it appears bigger and brighter with these mirrors that double as architectural beauties.
Mirrors have been well used by all design styles to add expanse, depth, light, and to see oneself. These functional pieces of glass will always be timeless.
