Illusion mirrors really can look amazing and really add exciting elements to your wall repertoire. Consider whether your garden wall could cope with the optical illusion of an open door, suggesting that if you walk through, you will be in another world. Simply by the suggestion of altered horizons, your perception of the proportions available will be confused and your boundaries visually extended.
An open window is another illusion that can really impact a flat boring wall and transform your garden or patio area. With so many available, there will be one to suit your taste and style. Hanging plants or evergreen foliage such as trailing ivy placed on either side will add to the effect.
You could also make an illusion window part of the area the children play in and help them to create the play house of their dreams. Boundary walls are great for illusion doors or windows, and even a small city yard or balcony can often cope with the suggestion of a secret opening into another world if carefully and thoughtfully placed. You may not have a vast sprawling haven but you can at least create that lush illusion to surprise and astound your guests.
Creating illusion can add real impact in any outdoor area, and garden wall mirrors are particularly stunning garden decorations when it comes to achieving great surprising visual effects.
If you have a garden with ugly walls or fences it's better to camouflage them. You can let ivy grow against them or paint the walls. By using pergolas and creepers you can use the space in your garden in an even better way. Vertical gardening gives lots of extra possibilities and a shady atmosphere. Against painted walls you might put a wooden frame in a nice color and shape, this will create a great effect. It's also possible to put a rose bow against a wall and between the rose bow you could put a mirror. Because of the reflexion of the garden in the mirror your garden will suddenly look bigger. For this you can use an ordinary mirror, but take care that you cover the backside of the mirror with red lead first.
