Gorgeous Ways to Use Glass and Mirrors in the Bedroom

Mirror Wardrobe Doors
The benefits of using glass and mirrors in your décor are well-documented. You can find numerous ideas of how to use both in the bathroom, and you should definitely incorporate the materials into that space. The bedroom is another area that can benefit from the use of glass and mirrors. Below are a few ideas of how to creatively use custom glass or mirrors in the bedroom.
Custom Mirror Wardrobe Doors
Using mirrors for wardrobe doors is not a new concept. You can have mirror panels attached to your existing doors or replace the doors with already mirrored ones. You can also customize the mirrors to augment your existing décor. For instance, you can choose mirrored panes instead of plain panels. The additional frames within the panels add extra visual interest with mod-style patterning.
Sliding Glass Wardrobe Doors
Most homeowners don't think of using glass for their wardrobe or closet doors since you usually want to keep the interior hidden. However, not all glass is transparent. You can choose frosted, smoked, or otherwise colored glass for your door panels.
Imagine a door made of opaque white glass. Your closet's interior will be hidden, but the white coloration as well as the light reflection will still create an open feel to your bedroom design.
Glass or Mirror Privacy Screen
In that vein, open floor plans are very popular in contemporary home design. This style of plan even finds its way into the bedroom. You may have an oversized space that also accommodates other activities, such as exercise or office duties. Yet you need privacy for sleeping. Designers often recommend glass or mirror privacy screens to delineate the sleeping area.
As with the closet doors, you can choose opaque glass or mirrors for full privacy. An added benefit if you choose mirrors is you have that much more reflection for checking your appearance - naturally, the mirror should be aimed out from the bed. That said, you can also choose clear glass if the main goal is quiet. Some homeowners have sliding glass to open their space back up.
Glass Transition Between the Bedroom and Bathroom
With an open floor plan idea, many designers try keep the area between the master bedroom and bathroom as open as possible. Indeed, one of the current trends is to use a glass wall between the two rooms. Sometimes these walls are opaque, but many times designers use transparent glass.
If that construction doesn't afford you enough privacy, you can still incorporate glass with your standard walls. For example, you could have a glass half-wall that hides the bottom half of the bathroom but lets light flow through the top. Conversely, you could incorporate glass blocks into the transition between the two rooms, which gives both light reflection and privacy.
Sliding Glass Entrance Door
The entrance door to your bedroom can also be replaced with a glass one. Here's a space you certainly want to choose one of the opaque options for privacy, though you could attach blinds to the door that can drop when needed.
One way to update this idea is to replace a hinged door with a sliding version. Called a pocket door, such a construction affords you more space since you don't need the clearance for opening the door. Pocket doors slide into the wall, so you don't even have to sacrifice wall space.
Light Reflection for Plants
Mirrors reflect light, and many people use that quality to illuminate dark corners of their homes. You can also use that quality to encourage lush plant life in the bedroom.
For this idea, you'll need to choose the mirror first and experiment with angles for reflecting the light. You'll probably want to move both the mirror and the plants around to discover the best setup. The benefit is, though, that you can create tableau with lush plants.
