Mirrors are a wonderfully versatile design feature, adding instant glamour and interest, while maximizing light and boosting the sense of space. A home is incomplete without a mirror and here are Vastu Dos and Don’ts for Mirror placement
✔️ For Living Room
If your main entrance opens into the living room, avoid placing the mirror in front of the entrance or entry gate of the house, as it will reflect back the energy entering the home. However, you can place the mirror in the foyer, above a console table that will also add a welcoming touch to your home. Place a mirror on the wall opposite the window in the living room on the north or east wall, to maximise the lighting in the afternoon
Avoid placing mirrors in bedrooms, for good health and peaceful life. However, if you have to keep the dressing table with a mirror in your bedroom, it should not face the bed or reflect the person on the bed. Also, if possible, cover or conceal the mirror in a wardrobe or cover it with a cloth, when not in use. As per bedroom guidelines, a mirror should not reflect the entrance of the bedroom.
Avoid designer beds which have mirrors on the headrest as it may cause restlessness to the occupants. Similarly, adding a mirror to the false ceiling, will reflect the bed and floor. Avoid this arrangement as it may cause stress. Do not place broken or rusted mirrors in the bedroom, as it attracts negative energy. If you have a dressing room attached to the bedroom, place the mirror on the north or eastern wall of the room.
✔️ For Kids Room
For your children’s room, make sure that no mirror is placed in front of the bed in your child’s room. Since mirrors are thought to bounce energy around the bedroom, this may cause restlessness in your child and amplify their stress. Mirrors can also sometimes create strange illusions, thereby, ridding the space of positivity.
