We have all felt the urge to redecorate a room, whether it’s the living room, bathroom or master bedroom. While you could create a long list of changes to be made, you might not have to do as much as you think. Adding or changing the mirror, or mirrors, in your space can create a big difference. Read on to learn why.

Create an Illusion

Adding a mirror to any space, especially a smaller one, can create the illusion of a larger room. Make sure your mirror is hung at eye level, otherwise it could create an awkward reflection that draws attention for the wrong reasons.

You can also consider hanging two mirrors next to each other. This mimics the appearance of a wall of windows and can open up the space. Overall, mirrors can create the effect of a larger space without having to demo your walls.

Make Mirrors the Focal Point

While a mirror might seem like a simple addition to a room or even an afterthought, selecting the right mirror for your space is important. If you select a mirror with a unique and eye catching frame, it can instantly become the focal point of any room.

Mirrors can be considered a work of art, much like anything else you hang on your wall. It should be a reflection of your style and and fit in well with the design of the rest of the room. Whether your style is modern, art deco, or rustic, the mirror frame should represent that.

Choose the Right Place to Put It

You’ve found the perfect mirror for your space, you just have to decide where to put it. If you are looking to make your space look larger, hang it on the opposite wall of a window. This will reflect the natural light and expand the room.

If there is a dark corner in a room that you aren’t sure what to do with, consider placing a floor mirror there. Mirrors don’t always need to be hung on a wall. Choosing a floor mirror can have all the same effects without the extra work of hanging it.
