How to choose a beautiful mirror to brighten a dark room

  • If you have a room that feels cramped, mirrors can create the illusion of more space.
  • Mirrors often simply reflect the floors and walls opposite them, but their effect is far more satisfying if they are positioned to reflect something uplifting such as a stunning piece of art, a feature wallpaper, a beautiful garden or a gorgeous vista.
  • A mirror can create a striking statement or focal point in a room. Keep the space around the mirror free from clutter so it can sing.
  • A grouping of small mirrors can be just as effective as a cluster of art prints.
