Moving into a small house or a small apartment has a lot of perks. It is easy to maintain and it can afford you the cosiness and the comfort that a large house cannot give. But we have to admit that when it comes to decorating small rooms, we find ourselves stumped and bereft of sterling decorating ideas. Perhaps this is the best time to introduce the benefits of mirror and Perspex furniture in small rooms.
There are a number of advantages of using mirror for small rooms. Here are some of them:
1. Mirror in a small room creates the illusion of space.
It makes a room look two times its size especially if you have large floor to ceiling mirrors that encompass a whole wall. For instance, if you have a small bedroom, you can always have a mirror installed in your built in cabinets or use mirror as a cover for your open shelves. You can also install a large statement wall mirror above living room side tables.
2. They make great room accessories.
You no longer have to buy lots of room accessories and find yourself in the trouble of learning how to put these room accessories together. This task can be a tad challenging to anyone who does not have inkling about room decorations. But a nice mirror is easy to work with. You can easily find a spot for it and make your other room decors work around it. It makes decorating your small room a tad easier.
3. You can find lots of designs.

4. They are inexpensive.
Mirrors are cheap. You can always have it embellished with the design you want. For instance, you can buy a nice large mirror and then create a frame for it using wood. Put studs, beads or any design you want on the frame. If you are not feeling creative, there are reliable furniture builders selling unique shabby chic mirrors that will not bust the bank.
Advantages of Perspex Furniture for Small Rooms
Perspex, also known as acrylic is nothing revolutionary in the furniture industry. They have been around since 1930s. But because of the fusion of modern and traditional decorations and room designs, they have managed to come back in the limelight with full force.
A typical Perspex furniture piece is made up of durable, clear and very light plastic. They are often used to create transparent coffee tables, side tables, chairs and small white bedside table.
Here are some of the advantages of using Perspex furniture for small rooms.
1. They are not cluttered looking so they are perfect for small spaces.

It is a nifty furniture idea for small spaces.
2. They are light in weight so you can easily transfer them in any part of the house.

3. It is very versatile and can be combined with traditional furniture.
