Does Art Around Window Need To Be Symmetrical?

Good Questions

Q: I am rearranging my pictures, and I am thinking about moving the pictures around the "dining room" window. I was thinking about adding a mirror to help make the space feel larger.

Because the window is centered on the wall, do I need to have two mirrors flanking the window? Or can I get away with one? Do I need to put something under the mirrors so they don't look lost on the wall, like a console table? There isn't a lot of space behind the dining table, just enough to get to the chairs. I would hate to add more furniture and make it too cramped. Thanks!
