Antique mirrored finish splashbacks

Mirrors are a great way to open up any space; they have the ability to brighten any room with the use of artificial or natural light too. Some people have even moved away from the traditional wooden shelving units in favour of not only toughened glass shelves, but mirrored finish glass shelves, because they look so amazing. Now there is something new! Well, not actually new, but antique, at least in its effect anyway. An antique mirrored finish shelf, shower screen, balustrade or splashback can make your home look something extra special. But why has such an old idea come back to the modern homes of today?

Antique mirrored finish glassware to improve your property

An antique mirrored finish in glass accessories is a fascinating and captivating interior design trend that adds bags of character to mirrors, shelves, shower screen and other glass items. Although it might appear to be counterintuitive to choose a mirror that appears old, weathered, or even damaged, this clever ageing effect works beautifully in both modern and old interiors, and sometimes exteriors. Below are just a handful of reasons why an antique mirrored finish on glass is gaining such popularity.

An antique mirrored finish adds character

Antique mirrors, are often distressed to create a rather mottled or "foxed" effect. They offer more richness and depth than your average or regular mirror. Their tarnished, old and distressed appearance seems to tell a story and brings a sense of history to your home.

What is a foxed effect?

A foxed mirror is actually an old mirror that has started to deteriorate. It may exhibit spots, browning, or mistiness that cannot be removed with regular cleaning. The term "foxing" refers to the silvering in antique mirrors that has tarnished or turned misty due to age. Light foxing adds a pleasing patina of age, while heavy foxing can reduce the mirror's reflective quality.

The foxed effect is often artificially replicated where there is a need for vintage charm and the homeowner wants to lend character to a particular living space. Some mirrors have a heavily foxed appearance, making them more decorative than purely functional. They catch light and bounce it back out, adding warmth to any room. Some glass with an antique mirrored finish may be quite subtle, but whether the foxing effect on your antique mirrored finish glass is heavy or light, foxed mirrors add character and history to your living space, even if they're not as reflective as their traditional glass counterparts.

Interior or exterior antique mirrored finish glass products

Whenever you add a mirrored surface, such as a splashback or a freestanding looking glass to your home, consider an antique mirrored finish. It will instantly add intrigue, a sense of history and lots of character, making your living space more interesting and thoroughly unique.

An exterior glass in an antique mirrored finish will look utterly amazing. In fact, the fact that the outdoor space is more likely to leave water marks and other dirt or debris deposits on the glass, an antique mirrored finish will enable the glass to blend into its outdoor surroundings even better. Balustrades around decking, patios and ponds will look incredible when given an antique mirrored finish.

A unique splashback in antique mirrored finish for a unique kitchen

In kitchens, an antique mirrored finish splashback can boost light and space in a more subtle way than a pristine mirrored splashback. It works well as a contrast in clean-lined, contemporary kitchen areas.

An antique mirrored finish splashback looks great above the cooking hob. Installing an antique mirrored finish splashback above the cooker enhances light and adds a rather interesting and different twist to modern kitchen appliances. The antique mirrored finish also goes extremely well with older, more traditional kitchen layouts. It really is a win, win situation!

Antique mirrored finish glass can create an optical illusion

Mirrors in alcoves or window-shaped frames create the illusion of peering into another room. Foxed mirrors that boast an antique mirrored finish, achieve this effect while preventing accidents. Clear, pristine mirrored areas are notorious for causing collision accidents. They can make an area appear to be a continuation of a smaller area, fooling people or pets to think they have further to walk. A glass that has an antique mirrored finish will make everyone aware that it is there and thus, nobody is likely to experience an embarrassing collision with the glass.

Make you small spaces shine with an antique mirrored finish

In smaller areas around the home, such as toilets or bathrooms, antique mirrored finish glass lends so much character and complements other design elements too. Try pairing it with roughed-up surfaces nearby for a cohesive look. An antique mirrored finish glass product looks absolutely incredible in a more traditional and rustic situation, but can also look great in a modern setting too.

Some people really do get into the antiqued look in a big way. There are videos online detailing how to artificially distress furniture and how to expose brickwork by removing sections of plaster, sometimes even adding artificial aged brick effects when no bricks even exist. The shabby chic interior design movement has really taken a hold on the imagination of home owners up and down the country.

People sometimes pay a ridiculous amount of money to own something that is genuinely antique, but the artificially antiqued market is gaining momentum at an astonishing rate. The antique mirrored finish effect is becoming an oft requested finish by many customers here at Splashbacks of Distinction, so why not have a look at some of the examples that are on our gallery section of the website. We are sure you will be inspired!
