Using Mirrors

A plane mirror is the type of mirror found most often in the home. It’s a flat mirror that reflects an image in its normal size and shape.

The best thing about mirrors is they’re useful and beautiful.

Most people have at least one mirror in the house. But mirrors do more than help you check your reflection before you leave home.

Mirrors add decorative touches, bring light into a room, and add spaciousness.

Try a Mirrored Wall

Do you live in a small apartment or condominium? A mirrored wall is a great way to bring in natural light and add depth to a room. Mirrors make the room look bigger.

In a small apartment, hang full-length mirrors across the span of a windowless wall.

Don’t worry about losing functionality because the wall is covered with mirrors.

If you work at home, put your desk against the glass.

Dark Bedroom?

The reflective quality of mirrors makes them great for bringing light into a dark space.

Be strategic in your placement of mirrors, and you’ll see more light reflected in your rooms.

A small dark bedroom is a perfect place to add a mirror.

It doesn’t have to be an entire mirrored wall. It doesn’t have to be a big mirror. Hang a small decorative mirror opposite a window to add light.

The Perfect Entryway

The entryway is the perfect spot for a decorative mirror.

If you have a small or large entryway, try a mirror. This way you can check your look before leaving the house.

A decorative mirror in the entryway enhances the light.

How About the Kitchen?

Most people don’t think to use a mirror in the kitchen. But what about a mirrored backsplash?

A backsplash brings light into the kitchen. It makes a small kitchen appear larger. And a mirrored backsplash is easy to clean.
