Inspiration: Using Mirrors to Expand Your Space

This weekend, we toured the Richard Neutra House in Silverlake and realized how many "modern" solutions originated with Neutra that are still viable today. The house, with its small footprint needed to maximize space and light. Here, a mirror over a small dressing table/desk serves triple purpose...

As well as its practical use, the mirror also serves to bounce light around the room and, in its most impressive guise, reflects the windows, literally doubling them. This is a tried and true trick for enlarging a small space that feels fresh again. Consider it, especially if the reflection will double your windows and your view as it does here. Use mirrored tiles or, for a more unbroken reflection, consider having a glazier custom cut mirror for you.
