Mirror magic

Let’s talk about better living! Our new interactive family corner aims to expand our lifestyle horizons with practical little pearls of wisdom from the editor and input from our readers.

Mirrors are a decorative item that can maximise a room’s style in an instant. If well-placed, they reflect light into a space to brighten and enliven the décor, open up the room, alter a view, or reflect a little personality. In Feng Shui, the ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China that aims to balance the energies of any given space to assure health and good fortune for people inhabiting it, mirrors can be used to channel energy.
The true beauty of mirrors is that they can be utilised in every room of your house. Try using mirrors in varying sizes and with different colour frames to give this versatile material several aesthetic uses throughout your home.

We have compiled here some of Feng Shui’s simple uses for mirrors:

Dining room: Mirrors placed next to your dining table are believed to bring fortune and wealth

Hallway end: Don’t place mirrors at the end of a hallway – it will create a place for energy to stop flowing.

Bathrooms: Mirrors represent water in Feng Shui; use them in your bathroom to create a flow of positive energy.

Bedrooms: Full-length mirrors can be fun, they can be a simple framed piece on a wall or you can have a bold statement as a piece of furniture. Mirrors that sit on the floor, and are seven feet tall are a beautiful way to add emphasis to an empty corner of a bedroom. Use multiple frameless mirrors on a wall to give visual interest, as well as a dressing room effect in your room. The possibilities are endless and bedrooms are all about self-expression!
