Use Mirrors to Improve Any Room

Mirrors are a great way to improve any room. Here at World to Home, we offer a wide selection of antique mirrors, as well as modern mirrors. Mirrors are not just for looking at. They have a broad range of decorative uses. Some mirrors, like the Winter View Decorative Silver Gold Antique Mirror, are even decorative by themselves. Here is a list of decorating tips for mirrors:
  • Large mirrors can be used to open up rooms by creating the illusion of a larger room. 
  • Put a mirror at the end of a hallway to create a dramatic effect, as well as giving the illusion of a longer hallway.
  • Place mirrors near an entry-way so that you can do a final checkup on yourself before leaving the house.
  • Use mirrors to reflect sunlight by placing them across from windows. The famous Hall of Mirrors  at the Versailles Palace does just this. The hallway stays brightly light; even on a cloudy day!

Fact of the Day: Nutcracker

It's funny how a nutcracker was initially intended to be used solely as a device to aid in breaking the hard shell of a nut or dry fruit. At least that was the main purpose back in the 15th century. While nutcrackers are still has this functionality, it's more of a home decoration nowadays, synonymous with the Christmas holiday.

Fact of the day:

Did you know that humans actually began eating nuts in the prehistoric time period?

During this time, they faced a huge problem in breaking open the shell of the nut. Most likely, the first tool used to crack open the nut or dry fruit was a rock, but using a rock came with a price. While it did break the nuts shell, it also smashed the kernel, which is the edible part, which then got mixed in with the broken shell.

With modern day technology, a simple instrument such as the nutcracker are continually improved so that it can more effectively crack the nut shell without destroying the kernel. Occasionally, the nutcracker still smashes the kernel, but we definitely came a long way since the prehistoric time period.
