Aren't mirrors just grand? A well-placed mirror can really maximize your home. Aside from being useful for checking for spinach in your teeth, mirrors open up a small space and reflect light into the darker corners of a room.
Depending on their shape and scale, the placement of a mirror can either be a statement piece or supportive accent to your overall style. There are a few rules to keep in mind when decorating with mirrors. Be mindful of where you place a mirror so that it reflects the best parts of your home. You don't want to go overboard with adding mirrors (or risk your space feeling like a disco ball) so be selective on designs that tie a room together. Finally, don't limit yourself on the size of your mirrors. Large mirrors make a small space appear bigger and smaller mirrors can be a focal point in oversized rooms.
