Inspiration: Using Mirrors as additional windows

Pin it button big

We loved this idea that we saw on a recent episode of Small Space Big Style on HGTV. Homeowners, Jamie Bush and Stephen Calipari made their small bungalow feel larger by bringing in as much natural light as possible. One of the ways they did this was to add mirrors. They placed two mirrors directly opposite the windows, and copied the size, shape and orientation of the windows, creating symmetry and the illusion of more windows.

Later in the episode, they also employed another trick, which was to use the same tile in their kitchen, and extend it to their outdoor patio, creating a seamless transition between inside and outside. This episode will repeat again Thursday June 21, 2007 at 6:30pm on HGTV.
