With a gilt pier mirror, you have the perfect way to tell an impressive story. Gilt mirrors have a coating of gold on the frames and are royal and luxurious. Before buying and decorating with a gilt mirror, it is essential to know what you want. Here are suggestions on how you can use these mirrors to decorate your home:
Adding an antique mirror to your living space can infuse some frills. It can create an excellent focal point in the room and make a bold and dignified decoration. While they were previously used in traditional interiors, gilt pier mirrors can be used anywhere.
You may want to pay attention to the time and place where the mirror originates. Some of the best pieces were created in mid-century Europe. They are oversized and can fit virtually anywhere within your home.
Pick a mirror with heavy carvings and flower decorations on the frame. Apart from the mirror glass, that kind of decorated frame provides something you would never tire of looking at. They are flashy and unapologetically royal. There’s no better way to create a focal point using these mirrors.

If you can’t find an excellent classic gilt pier mirror, pick the eglomise mirror made in rococo style. It is the perfect way to bring the French interior charm into your living space. They have gilded and etched backsides that give them a unique raw look that could tremendously transform any room in your house.
It is perfect when paired with other antiques, including furniture and decorations. Not only doesn’t it create layers of interest, but it also lights up your room. Thanks to the textured background, the mirror won’t be helpful in hallways, bathrooms, other spaces where you check yourself.
