Whether you are looking for a solution to a cramped living room space or a way to enhance your Feng Shui, large living room mirrors can add visual interest to your sitting room area. Mirrors can be rectangular, oval or round. They can be unframed or framed, the choice is yours. But there are some things to look for.
A good modern mirror should present a clear image, without wavering, enlarging or shrinking reflected objects. Another excellent feature to look for is an adhesive backing that will prevent shattering or exploding if something taps against the mirror or it is dropped. Some mirrors have a flannel backing that will help prevent dust accumulation behind it. Unframed mirrors should have a sturdy backing that will help support them. Framed mirrors should have a sturdy frame that will hold the mirror securely. Of course, it goes without saying that anything as large and heavy as a mirror should have secure wall anchors or be equipped with a floor frame.
With that said, a mirror can be used in accordance with Feng Shui. If you are not working with that art form, there are architectural and aesthetic considerations of other sorts. A mirror can make a small room look larger, or it can add visual interest by reflecting specific features.
A large living room mirror can even be a security measure, allowing you to see a hall or other area that might not otherwise be readily visible. Most of all, it can be beautiful.
