Storage is a key factor of any home. It’s a vital part of making sure our homes stay free from clutter and chaos, helping it stay neat and tidy for longer. But storage isn’t just a practical consideration, it also has the potential to be an attractive design element in its own right. When we think of storage, many of us automatically conjure images of wardrobes, chests of drawers and sideboards. While these are all useful home additions, a locker offers the chance to bring something really unique. Take a look at some of the eye-catching vintage lockers available right here at Vinterior.

How to use vintage mirrors in your home

The flowing lines of round mirrors provide a vast range of options, and you can use this home decor accessory in different ways in every room. Here are some ideas inspired by the mirrors at Vinterior to get you started:Hallway

Many entrances and hallways have limited space and it’s not unusual for them to be small and narrow. A round mirror with its flowing curves can bounce the light around, creating the perception of more space and making the hallway bright. Mirrors in your hallway are practical too, giving you the chance to check yourself over before you leave the house.

If you have an interest in Feng Shui, you’ll want to make sure that you don’t place the mirror opposite the door. This bounces the energy right back out, instead of bringing it into the home. Place your circular mirror on one of the walls which is perpendicular to the front door and you’ll get the best result all round.

Living room

In the living room, a vintage mirror looks its best when a focal point is created, making the most of its style and reflective qualities. If you have a fireplace, hanging your vintage mirror here will be simply perfect. As an alternative, you could hang your round mirror above some kind of retro dresser or other low cupboard; this creates a centrepiece for the room very effectively.

You might be inclined to hang the mirror above the sofa and indeed, this can look beautiful. However, from a practical point of view it can be less than ideal because if you keep catching sight of movements in the mirror in your peripheral vision, it can be very disconcerting. Additionally, if your sofa is opposite the TV, the reflection may be problematic.

Bathroom

Bathrooms tend to be primarily functional with style a secondary consideration. Opting for a retro mirror can add a splash of personality and make the room feel more inviting.

Mirrors are an essential in the bathroom so opting for a round, circular design that’s got vintage beauty means ticking off the boxes for both practicality and aesthetics all at once.

Dining Room

Although you may not be focussed on mirrors when creating your dining room decor, key accessories can really pull the room together. Creating a feature wall with framed photographs surrounding a vintage mirror can be extremely effective and inject warmth into the place where you eat.
