Make a room feel larger: In small rooms and especially apartments, mirrors offer an inexpensive way to give the illusion of space. Place mirrors on a wall opposite of a window wall and see how the view is multiplied times ten throughout the rest of the space. Use mirrors in a small kitchen as a backsplash and suddenly you will enjoy cooking and spending more time in your kitchen.
Place a mirror over your fireplace: For most home’s the fireplace is already the focal point of the room in which it resides. Add more emphasis to the fireplace by placing a beautifully framed mirror above the mantel. This will enlarge the room, and add a reflective surface to the décor you place on the mantle. From candle sticks to seasonal décor, a fireplace begs for a gorgeous mirror to adorn it.
Add interest to a long hallway: If your home has a long hallway, it’s a welcomed opportunity to place mirror vignettes, ‘puzzle’ piece mirrors, or groups of hanging mirrors on the side walls. This will help distract the eye when walking down the hallway, and will brighten up the darkness of the long corridor as well.
Brighten up your entry: Mirrors placed in a foyer or entryway is a welcomed sight for guests. They reflect light and open up a dark entry and give a place for guests to ‘check’ themselves while entering your home. In a larger foyer, place a small table, flower arrangement, lamp and mirror on the wall to expand the living area into this welcomed space. Try adding a mirrored buffet or table to adjacent rooms to make the entry flow into another room seamlessly.
