Rustic and farmhouse styles often go hand by hand. The two are able to coexist. To bring even more charm to a farmhouse style decor, you can add a rustic element. A rustic mirror in a natural wood frame or a patined metal frame could be that perfect decor element.
Mirrors have a magical quality of making an area look larger. They are fundamental for any decor and have the ability to completely transform a space. Whether you have one large mirror as a centerpiece, a mirrored ceiling, or hanging artisanal mirrors, the options are plentiful.
Mirror frames can be made from a wide range of materials, giving them wildly different styles. Metal frames add a sleek modern touch, plastic frames can be playful, but my favorite styles are those made with wood. I find wooden frames offer the perfect balance of natural and rustic to any setting.
Wooden frames often have details made from other materials such as metal fixtures or rope. This adds a cool element of texture. Since there are countless varieties of trees, just as many different frames can be made from wood. Styles that are slightly more rustic may have an unfinished surface or a live edge. More contemporary models might be glossy with stark lines.
The beauty of a rustic mirror is that it fits into a decor quite naturally, yet stands out for its eye-catching appeal. Though some wooden frames are simple and left au naturel, there are many possibilities to add decoration and embellishment. A carved wooden frame can be an artisanal piece while a windowpane framed mirror adds a touch of charm to a room. As well, wood can be painted to give it a fresh and updated look.
Not only do mirrors give the illusion of extra space, but they also increase the brightness and lighting in a room. This makes a huge difference if you have limited windows in your home. As mirrors reflect light from other sources, they illuminate their surroundings. With a rustic wooden frame, the light will shine softly, filling the room with a warm glow.
One advantage of rustic mirrors is that they blend well with furniture, making them easy to add to any room. Many designs are dual-purpose and include hooks, shelves, or drawers. These are a great way to add some light while keeping your space organized.
When deciding what kind of design you want to add to your decor, keep in mind the overall space of your house. Do you have a large blank wall screaming for attention? This could be the perfect spot to have a focal point mirror. Do you wish your living room had bigger windows? There are some very stylish models designed to look like wide window frames!
If you are so inclined, there are many ways to incorporate mirrors to improve feng shui in your home. Be sure to research the recommendations because there are also many locations to avoid!
Whether you choose a mirror to highlight your foyer or dining room, or for practical purposes like in your bathroom, you do not have to sacrifice style. Wood is extremely versatile and a great way to bring different components of your interior design together. Read on for a curated selection of 40 rustic mirrors for a farmhouse look.
