Mirrors are a great way to get a big change in your space and make it feel larger. An easy DIY trick is to put the mirror across from a sunny window to instantly create more light. Plus, the reflection will show a whole new perspective of your room.
As a designer, a mirror is often my best friend because they’re so versatile. In place of a huge piece of art, a mirror can be an inexpensive way to address a large wall. If you can’t find a mirror big enough, flank or surround the mirror with smaller art pieces. An arrangement like this is sure to ground your space.
Limited view? A factory mirror has a divided design that gives the look of mullions on a window. It can be used to mimic a window and is a chic and functional way to brighten up your room. I have one leaning on the wall by my front door. It’s just sitting on the floor, easy to move, and looks great when you’re passing by!
Mirrors can also act like an architectural element in a room that otherwise lacks any molding detail. Choose a mirror that has a pattern laid over the glass to add some detail and interest to your space.
