Mirror or Art?


Would you choose a mirror or a painting directly on a brick fireplace (6' wide up to the ceiling - no mantle)? I would like to suggest having a mantle added but this client has already gone to a lot of expense! Since nothing can be put directly in front of the mirror, only the opposite wall will be reflected. If you could suggest one over the other or even something totally different I'd appreciate it.



No point in putting a mirror unless it will reflect something very nice.

Art will add more personality.

You can even do wall mounted sculptures, light weight, like birds in flight, or a large decorative plate, artificial plants, etc.

Hanging on brick is no fun, so do something simple that only requires one nail/hook.
