Statement Mirrors: What’s Their Purpose
A bathroom mirror in architecture can serve several purposes not only to reflect, to project a larger size or to accentuate bright areas or to draw attention to wall colors and texture. Those who see mirrors as means for checking out their appearance will be surprised to learn that architects use mirros to convey a design statement, especially in bathrooms with minimal features and designs.
Try checking out your look in a restaurant bathroom mirror, and you’ll also notice if the bathroom reflection conveys a bathroom that is spic-and-span clean. The angle or space on which the bathroom mirror reflects walls that are immaculately clean but also shows that the walls and corners but also spotless and clutter–free.. While we are familiar with the purpose of using mirrors to project illusions of wide spaces and height, not many of us know that mirrors used for such purposes are called “Statement Mirrors.”
What Exactly is a “Statement Mirror”
A mirror regardless of shape, size or frame color is a functional and decorative object that architects and interior designers call “Statement Mirror,” are distinguished as such because their placement in a certain location in a room is not just for aesthetic purposes. They are strategically added to a wall space to project reflective images that can make the room look as having a larger and wider space. Some “Statement Mirror” can even be placed on locations that can make a room look bright and cheery, rather than stark by reflecting harsh lights.
Generally, architects and designers agree that the application of “Statement Mirrors” can also be the other way around; of using different shapes and lights to make “Statement Mirrors.” They do so to make the Statement Mirror the dominating artistic element in the room.
The contention about “Statement Mirrors” is that there is no restriction or limit to what they can do because the main purpose of their placement is to draw attention to what it can achieve or wish to convey as a statement.
An architect may decide to simply want to dress up a bare wall but with certain considerations of what the mirror achieves as wall cover. A Statement Mirror’s goal might be to add sophistication to a room, or to make a space look more energetic. However, these artistic goals can also be overpowering, which means the interior designer must use the right balance of shapes,size, colors and where to hang them when using “Statement Mirrors” as artistic accents of a room.
