Just about any small space can be helped along by hanging a mirror. It opens up the space and reflects light around, making a cramped room feel a little spatial relief. But in a nursery, a mirror does that and so, so much more:
It's a toy. Babies are infinitely entertained by seeing themselves in the mirror. Point them out to themselves and they'll laugh and smile. So fun!
It's a tool. Putting baby to sleep by holding her over your shoulder? A mirror is a really useful way to take a peek and see if she's asleep.
It's decorative. Mirrors come in lots of shapes and sizes. Use one or a few to complement the space. That beautiful mirror in the image up top makes the room.
Have you put a mirror to use in the nursery? Have you found any other uses for one?
