With a little ingenuity, there are a number of ways you can use mirrors to give your house a new look.
Antiques & Collectibles
Purchasing secondhand antiques and collectibles for the home gives family and guests something to discuss over an after dinner drink while warming up the room. It is also a good way to find missing pieces to add to a growing collection. Collectibles and antiques gain value as each year passes. These items rarely depreciate with time.
Antiques for the Family Room
In the family room, a good antique or vintage table lamp can tie together a theme or just add necessary light to a space. Matching lamps with an antique vase and antique furniture create a beautiful room that draws attention. It is ideal to decorate with minimalistic tendencies in mind as over doing creates clutter.
As far as the walls in a family room are concerned, consider using vintage wall hangings or tapestries that have a story behind them. Although they are likely telling someone else's story, it's still fun to share that tale with friends and family.
Collectibles for Display
Collections of items are often displayed in a specific room in the home. Most people also have a dedicated display case or shelf in a media room or den. This is to keep the items protected from potential damage when children are playing. Bottle collections are popular, with most collectors adding these to kitchens or room used for entertaining. A small shelf can be installed to keep them out of harm's way.
Adding Collectibles to the Bedroom
Be careful with your choice of collectibles or antiques for the bedroom. This room is intended to be romantic and relaxing. Items from the Romance period that depict flowers and stories of love are a great choice. Easily achieve a relaxed air in the bedroom with collectible paintings of a romantic theme, decorative tapestries, and a few small accessories.
In your search for used antiques and collectibles for sale, consider the colour scheme in the room. This should help you to decide what items to purchase so that all of the items match. You can select alternating colours to create contrast or pops of colour via accessories and collectibles. Items should also be organised so that the space does not appear to be cluttered.
