Living in small spaces requires thoughtful use of accents and furniture. While editing your pieces is often necessary in homes with a small footprint, one accent is here to stay. Mirrors are one of the best accents to use in a small space. They open up the space by allowing the room to appear larger, add dimension and light and simply expand a space. Plus they can be used many ways, leaning, hanging or via your own furniture. Here are a few ideas for using and custom-building your own best small space accent.
