Mirrors are so much more than just a simple tool to see your reflection. Mirrors have a bounty of applications—sometimes surprising ones.
In homes, mirrors can help enlarge the look of a room or enhance the lighting of a space. Or, they can be used decoratively as accent pieces on their own, especially when enhanced with a custom mirror frame. In commercial buildings, mirrors have been used to create impressive displays and optical illusions.
Different Uses of Mirrors and Ceramic Borders
With Velha Goa, you can design custom ceramic mirror borders for your home that are functional, decorative or both. Our understanding of interior decor will help you decide between the many kinds of mirrors and borders, and how to use them to benefit your space.
Here are 5 ways to incorporate ceramic mirror borders in your home:
Enhance natural light
Mirrors that are placed directly across from a bright window will reflect light throughout the room.

Large mirror types, like a floor to ceiling mirror, go well in living rooms because they give the illusion of more space.
