THE MAGICAL EFFECT OF MIRRORS

THE MAGICAL EFFECT OF MIRRORSIf the size of the hall, kitchen or bedroom does not suit you, take the time to change the flat. Use our advice. They will help you to double and the area of any room. These methods have long been known, we only need to know how to use them wisely. You probably guessed that as a kind of a magic wand, he usually… a mirror. We are so used to the traditional it mind — contourennota frame or embedded in the Cabinet— which does not present him as a decorative element. And yet… that is the question. Look at our pictures. Even staring at the image of interior bathroom or hallway, you did not immediately understand where the actual space where the illusory mirror. Of course, to penetrate the latter, like the APIs of the famous tale by Lewis Carroll, it is impossible, but the sense of space is also important for us.

Especially when we literally crushed the walls and ceiling by hanging over the head of clumsy mezzanine. Remember that only a mirror can help correct, for example, a small entrance hall with exposed angle. Place on this part of the wall the mirror and the projection “disappears”. Importantly, the frame of the mirror was perhaps more discreet. Best impression of a frame of polished aluminium angular profile. Pick four the same “area” of the required length — one shelf profile should have a width of 5-7 mm, and the other 20. For the base you will need plywood or hardboard with a thickness of about 6 mm. you Can, however, assemble the base of the mirrors and strips of cross-section 15×50 mm, cementing the corners of the frame plywood “gussets”, and then “corners” to attach the mirror to the base. Truly inexhaustible possibilities of mirrors! And awsum seems clear to us the mystical horror of our ancestors, was first ensconced in two mirror plane parallel to each other and adults in the resultant endless corridor… Let’s try to use this kind of magical quality. After all, the home designs, where it can be done, a lot.

Confess honestly, those wooden-polished tables that you can buy in the store, so not like the real fireplaces that call them that word even a bit awkward. Meanwhile, to make almost indistinguishable from the present fireplace much easier than the same size locker.
 
Work start with assembling the frame. For this, you will need the Reiki section of 30×30 mm. Between itself they are best to connect “vpoldereva” or kerchiefs on the plywood, glue and screws. Depending on the installation location of pseudocumene can be flat — if it will be against the wall or base of the triangle, when placed in the corner of the room.

R and S. 3. The use of mirrors for the manufacture of fire-simulation. Two set at an angle of the mirror will create the impression of a large internal volume of the furnaces, will enhance the effect of the flickering “flame”. To the right is the arrangement of mirrors and lamps, as well as the device of the convection turbine.
 
Then the frame is sheathed with hardboard or plywood, and then is coated “stone” or “brick”. First and second — only an imitation of these materials, the plates of plywood, hardboard or even thick cardboard. To make them similar, for example, on the bricks, cover them with latex paint, tinted with colored gouache. While it is best to plant several shades of orange paint-brown tones and consistently apply them on plates (with intermediate drying) with a swab of crumpled newsprint. Glue the “bricks” are best Bustilat or polyvinyl acetate glue. The joints between the “bricks” must be luted and painted in dark grey (“cement”) color. Not too difficult to make and the imitation of stone blocks. To do this on a sheet of plywood, hardboard or thick cardboard draw the contours of the individual “stones”. Thereafter, the sheet with a narrow blade is cut on a separate plate, their edges are rounded, and the workpiece is lubricated with glue (epoxy or silicate). Remains of glue on top to sow the plate normal river sand and “Nanni” can be considered ready. Well, if you manage to pick up the sand two to three shades — then combinations are different from each other stone blocks will look much more natural. “Namin” “namni” stick Tang is exactly the same as “bricks”.
 
Front “Namin” decorated “nounou” sieve — it is made of wooden slats and plywood rings and painted matte black red. The illusion of a flickering flame is created with two or four lamps of low power (20 watts). Each of them is dressed spinner — paper cylinder with a slotted surface on the side Windows, covered with colored Mylar captive. At the top of the cylinder make radial slits and fold out, Nan is shown in the picture— you will get a kind of turbine rotated by the convection currents of air.
On the back of “fire” are two angled mirrors. By placing in the center of the two or three birch, slightly charred piece of wood, large pieces of glass and pieces of aluminum foil or metalized lavsan, you will get an excellent likeness of the flickering “fire” with the half-blushing from the heat of the coals. And a considerable merit of a good simulation belongs to mirrors, reflecting and multiplying the image, like a kaleidoscope.
 
But back to decorated with mirrors bathroom. Shown the location of mirrors is not the only option “expansion” of space. Cut into a dozen square ” mirror panels with tile. Carefully in several layers of paint them from the backside with oil paint (waterproofing!), dry and remove in several places the tile, replace it with mirrors, gluing them to the wall with Bustilat or zameshennoy on cement heavy-bodied paint. If multiple mirrors are positioned next, carefully Vyberte their situation is a reflection of several plates must be unified. Such a “window” on a solid wall would also significantly reduce the sense of enclosed space, besides playing its main role is to reflect who you wish them to see. The multiple use of mirrors in modern interiors! However, sometimes a stop for small — they are not cheap, especially if you want some, yeah n also of considerable size.
 
In such cases, you can use a kind of substitute — metallized Mylar. On the wooden frame with glue BF-2 glue film. Note that the ends of the frame have fluff glue two or three times, with intermediate drying, and applying to the ends of the tape without waiting for the final drying of the last layer. Then take the iron and on installing the regulator in the “silk” smooth out the glue seam. Further, the controller is set to “web” and proslejivaetsya have the whole plane of the future “the mirror” — while the film vtupuyu stretched to form a perfectly smooth reflective surface. This mirror will last you long enough — of course, if you don’t break through the tape with a sharp object won’t scratch him or it.
