Dining Room Mirrors: A dining room can be the perfect place to experiment with a wall mirror. With your dining room table taking the centre of attention in the room you should look for a mirror that will complement this room. Depending on the size of your dining space a leaner mirror would enhance this space beautifully and create an ultra-contemporary feel. A simple wall mirror featured on your wall in your dining room could easily double your space. If you were feeling daring you could go for the wall to wall mirror design. This would work beautifully in your dining room and would create a sleek elegant look. It is also ideal for small dining spaces and could help brighten up your living space.
The Origin of the Sunburst Mirror- The sunburst mirror has a fascinating history that dates right back to the 17th Century. During the 17th Century the Catholic Church began to use monstrances above the alter these elaborate designs were made up of decorative stands surrounded by glided rays of sunshine demonstrating what we know today as the sunburst style. These monstrances were often found in churches in Italy featured above the altar. The very first mirrors were very small and convex and it wasn’t until the late 17th Century that mirror production became more established and mirrors eventually increased in size.
