When decorating and furnishing your home, wall mirrors are an essential element to invest in. Not only do they add a touch of style and sophistication, but they also serve a practical purpose for checking your reflection before heading out or having guests over. Mirrors can also make a room appear larger, open up a space and reflect light to brighten a dark room. They can also be used to create a focal point or to draw attention to a particular feature.
What is a contemporary home?
Contemporary homes are modern and up-to-date with all the latest gadgets and gizmos. Think copper fixtures, feature walls, built-in coffee machines, surround-sound systems, etc. When furnishing a contemporary home, a modern wall mirror that is timeless and of high quality is the best choice.
Modern wall mirrors
When it comes to modern wall mirrors, there are many different styles and designs to choose from. One of the great things about modern wall mirrors is that they can be used in various ways. They can be hung on the wall to create a focal point or placed on a shelf or table to add a decorative touch. They can also reflect light, making a room appear brighter and more inviting. No matter how you use them, modern wall mirrors are sure to bring a touch of style and sophistication to your home.
Modern wall mirrors can also be used in combination with other décor elements. For example, they can be placed above a fireplace to create a dramatic focal point or draw attention to a piece of artwork or furniture. They can also create a sense of depth in a room by placing them in front of a window or wall. Wall mirrors can also help create a sense of balance in a room. For example, if one wall is decorated with a large piece of artwork, a wall mirror can create a sense of balance by adding an additional element to the wall. This can help to create a sense of harmony in the room.
Modern wall mirrors can also create an illusion of space. Placing a mirror in a room can help create the illusion of a larger space, as it will reflect the light from the other walls and create the illusion of a larger room. This can be especially useful in small rooms, as it can help to make the room feel more spacious.
Handmade mirrors at Steamed Studio
Here at Steamed Studio, we have three types of contemporary wall mirrors – all handmade to order. Whether you’re looking for something sleek and modern or something a little more ornate, we’re sure one of our bespoke wooden framed mirrors will fit the aesthetic of your home.
Our custom-made wooden frame mirrors as statement items that may pass down through the generations. Statement items are a fantastic choice for the home because they become the focal point of the décor and catch everyone’s attention when they walk in.
A handmade wooden mirror can be precisely what you need to set the mood in your living area. Choosing a statement item can occasionally be intimidating because many assume you must go with something enormous and vivid. Selecting an excessively colourful or too large piece may be detrimental and dominate the space.
The Piras mirror, one of our best-sellers, is framed in an organic shape inspired by nature. It comes in three finishes: Intense Black, Nordic White and Pure. Each finish has been oiled for a slight sheen that complements a modern home with contemporary decor.
The Belvedere mirror is another excellent choice. This mirror has a more contemporary design and is steam-bent to produce rounded, feminine lines. It also comes in the same three finishes as the Piras for a subtle sheen that brings out the wood’s natural grain.
The Fiore mirror gives the living or dining room personality and unique flair. This droplet-shaped mirror has a double-curved top feature. The same three colours and finishes are available: Pure, Nordic White and Intense Black.
How our modern wall mirrors are made
The wood is bent into shape using steam. Once the fibres are softened by steam, it allows for easy stretching with the additional help of clamps and jigs. As the wood cools, it then solidifies into a new shape. To do it correctly, the process demands excellent knowledge and skill.
Eco-friendly for a modern approach to furnishing
At Steamed Studio, we care about the environment and make every effort to lessen any harm our business practices may do to the natural world. We use less energy and more sustainable resources to produce the least amount of environmental waste possible.
Overall, modern wall mirrors can be used in various ways to create a sense of balance, depth, luxury and sophistication in a room. They can create a dramatic focal point, draw attention to a piece of artwork or furniture, or create an illusion of space.
