A picture tells a thousand words. But more than that, a picture in your home can trigger a certain memory; something you’d like to see every day. Whether it’s a picture of someone or something, the artefacts you keep in your home should bring you joy, so why not turn one into a timeless object by getting it laminated in glass?
Your favourite images can take on a whole new dimension when laminated in glass. Placed on a window sill, they transform the aesthetic of a room, especially if your existing décor is minimalist and fresh. You’ll be surprised at how images — a landscape photograph you took on holiday or a picture of a flower you found on a hike — can look as if they were taken by a professional photographer when they are lit up with light entering through a window.
If your photography skills aren’t up to par, consider that the image doesn’t have to be a family photo. Perhaps you want to add décor based on the look of a room – you can design your own glass piece from an existing painting or photograph. All it takes is a google search for a high resolution image and we’ll sort out the rest. A print of your favourite Van Gogh can be transformed into a glass image as well. Accent colours in a painting can draw inspiration for or from an existing living space, but it takes a keen eye to tell. If your house guests are keen observers, perhaps they’ll note, “do the colour of those leaves match your coffee table?”
No Natural Sunlight In A Room?
Not to worry. At House of Mirrors, we also provide the installation of edge-lit glass. The best use of edge lit glass is for use in shelving – the light illuminates glass objects places on the shelf’s surface. Why not get both an edge lit shelf and a laminated photo? The pair are perfect for a unique, modern display of your favourite memories.
