A large floor mirror provides a graphic piece of art and makes a room seem twice its size. Lean it against the wall to avoid hanging the heavy piece and for greater flexibility. If you want to move it, just pick it up and go.
If you want a mirror to work harder than simply reflecting back a room, look for a mirror with an unusual frame so it becomes a focal point in its own right. This one is crafted from thin tree branches.
A long, horizontal mirror mimics the large window adjacent to it and complements the squat sectional and low coffee table. When you're facing a mirror dilemma, try hanging the mirror horizontally. A vertical mirror would have interrupted the eye's flow throughout this room.
A symmetrical arrangement stands out for both its room-enlarging reflective qualities and its graphic simplicity.
Double the glimmer from lit candles when you place them on a mirrored tray and surround them with framed mirrors of all shapes and sizes. Thrift stores and flea markets are great places to find vintage mirrors such as these.
Simple shapes layered on a manteltop create an uncluttered look. Try this yourself by choosing mirrors without adornment and pairing similar shapes.
Use an oversize mirror in a small bathroom to make the space appear larger. Not only will the mirror expand the look of the bathroom, but it also provides a larger surface to look at yourself when completing your bathroom routines.
Layering textured paper, a mirror, and a shadowbox creates a beautiful display ideal for a small collection. Consider using opposite shapes (here, and oval and square) when composing this look.
Mirrors are useful things; they help us put our best face forward when we leave the house. Simply choose a large mirror with a simple frame, such as this, to create a style statement and brighten a space. So even when there's no need to primp, you can enjoy the mirror.
Think beyond the expected. A mirror above the fireplace is expected, but framed mirrors stacked on the mantel add a fresh dimension to the choice. And, in this unused fireplace, a nonbreakable mirror in the firebox reflects the light of the room and the window across, enhancing the perceived size of a small living room.
