How To Use Mirrors To Maximise Spatial Experience?

Creating a spatial experience calls for bringing sensory and atmospheric qualities together; one that builds emotional connection. As it’s a non-tangible experience, understanding a person’s personal evaluation of the space is quite essential. However, in the design world, there’s one object that helps you in achieving this experience with ease. It’s none other than a mirror!

Mirrors have the power to amplify light, illustrate the beauty of bright spaces and break the clutter. It’s an effective and low-cost tool that makes your compact space look bigger. Not just that, it works well as a decorative piece and blends in well with every style. Overall, mirrors resolve all your design dilemmas with its reflecting powers. 

“Positioned correctly, a mirror can create light, space, texture and character. Strategically placed mirrors are some of the simplest ways to increase your spaces visually. In Fact aside from oversized windows and roaring ceilings, there is no better friend to your small spaces than a well placed mirror. Bringing in light, breaking visual clutter, or expanding walls, mirrors can help you solve almost any design dilemma” says Varun Baweja, Founder & Interior Designer, Varun Baweja Designs.


Here are a few ways in which you can use mirrors to maximise spatial experience:

Make a group

Grouping mirrors can help you bring balance and harmony to a cosy little space. As the idea is to maximise the spatial experience, placing a group of small mirrors in the hallway or top of your headboard can help you attain the goal. 


Brighten-up the space

If your space feels a little dull, small or dark, it’s time to bring some natural light in. Place the mirror opposite or beside your window and let it do the rest! Your mirror will harness the natural light and reflect it in your room. Giving you a much brighter and energetic space. Seems like the easiest trick in the design book, right?


Make it the centre of attraction

While designing a space, finding the focal point is quite essential. As it’s the thing that grabs your attention at first. Using mirrors has proven to be one of the best architectural focal points. Think of a large mirror placed against a plain wall. It instantly adds drama and dimension to your room. You can experiment with the spaces, colours, and patterns to match the look you are aiming for!

Create an illusion of bigger spaces

Mirrors are known to reflect light which creates an illusion of bright and bigger space. Alongside, it offers depth and dimension to your space which makes it appealing to the eye. But remember that placement is the key. The goal is to harness as much natural light as possible. So, make sure to place your mirror in the right direction. 

According to Baweja, Utilizing mirrors for small areas is an art work. You may nail or glue mirrored tiles in a different pattern like brick style, herringbone, etc in areas to make them more eye-catching”.

More often than not, everyone wishes to have a space that is an extension of their personality. Mirrors duly fulfil this need by reflecting an individual’s eclectic person, literally! So, if you are someone looking for an easier way to transform your space and maximising spatial experience, mirroring is the ultimate answer for you!
