Using Sunburst Mirrors in Your Home Decor

By Simone Design Blog @HomeSpire

When decorating a room or a space, one of the first accessories homeowners think of is a mirror. We all know that mirrors have the ability to make your space look bigger and brighter. Lately, one of the most common types of wall mirrors is a sunburst mirror. These mirrors are attributed to Louis XIV, famously known as the “Sun King”. He chose the “Sun” as his emblem, as he had an intense love of the sun and its powerful rays! Sunburst mirrors are rapidly gaining in popularity. They come in variety of shapes, sizes, styles and materials. Light and warmth have a great ability to lift up our spirits, so we tend to incorporate decorative pieces in our homes that provide these ingredients for us.

If you’re looking for a focal point for your space that’s dramatic and eye catching, then this type of mirror will be an ideal decorating fixture. With the proper lighting it will give a great glow and it could just be the perfect work of art your room needs. With its colorless frame it will enhance any existing room decor you have. Whether your space is a hallway, bedroom, or living room, a sunburst mirror will make a great accent piece.

With all this natural light and a sunburst mirror attached to a walled fireplace mantle, isn’t this room just fabulous! Can you just picture what the room reflection must be like?

Where would you put your sunburst mirror? For me, it would be in the living room, the hallway, the bathroom…. well, you get the idea!
