Tranform a Room with Mirrors

One of the design elements of a room that often gets overlooked are mirrors. They are a decorative item that doesn't gets much fanfare. They have a wide range of uses including finish material on walls, and as a cladding on furniture. Whether you hang it over the fireplace, by the door for that one last look or place them in frames throughout the room, mirrors can transform a space from small to roomy in a heartbeat. Mirror styles are versatile in that they can represent any décor style, and come in a variety of sizes to fit any location in the home.

Your home can benefit from the use of mirrors, and here are some simple benefits to keep in mind:

Make a room feel larger by reflecting the light and brightening it up
Place a mirror over the fireplace to make the room bigger and be a focal point
Add interest to a long hallway by distracting the eye when walking down the hallway
Brighten up your entry with mirrors in a foyer or entryway is a welcomed sight for guests
Bedroom full length mirrors can be a simple framed piece on a wall or you can have a bold statement as a piece of furniture.

Mirrors reflect light into a space to enliven the décor. The true beauty of mirrors is that they can be utilized in every room of your house, so try using mirrors in the room you love best!
