Industrial style doesn’t have to be reserved for buildings with an industrial heritage. As the industrial trend continues to make its mark in the interiors world, people who live in other property types, from new builds to Georgian Town houses to Victorian terraces, are all jumping on the industrial chic bandwagon.
By carefully selecting some choice accessories, it is possible to bring that modern industrial vibe into our homes in a way that is subtle and works in any kind of property. Industrial style mirrors are a perfect way to add a bit of urban edge to a room whilst at the same time providing all the benefits regularly associated with mirrors. A well placed mirror can create more light and space in a room, but will also help to add character and even texture.
For example, place a mirror opposite a window and it will bounce the reflected light around the room, or place it in a dark corner and it will immediately brighten it up. By using larger mirrors you are able to create a feeling of added space, but it is worth giving a little thought to the angle of the room you want to reflect.
Texture can be brought into a room by choosing a mirror frame that is itself textured. This works extremely well in with an industrial style mirror, as finishes are often raw and rustic. But you can also use your mirror to reflect texture that is found elsewhere in the room. Try positioning it opposite an exposed brick wall for example.
Here we take a look at five great examples of industrial style mirrors that can help you to bring that modern industrial chic vibe effortlessly into your home. Some take inspiration from original warehouse windows, and one features antique mirror glass to give it an extra distressed look. One features a galvanised metal shelf making it extra practical. Another features a dark brown lacquered beech wood frame, brass details and leather straps. And one is made using reclaimed wood. They all bring something different to a warehouse style home.
