How to Use Mirrors for More Light and Style

Mirrors are a decorator’s best friend, and with good reason — a well-placed mirror makes the most of a room’s natural light, enhances views, opens a small space and adds surprise to decor. The key lies in pairing the right mirror with the right location to maximize its decor-uplifting potential. Here are 8 proven pairings to try in your own house.

1.Full-length mirror between two windows.

Placing a full-length wall mirror between two windows tricks the eye into thinking there is another window there and helps maximize natural light. Casually propping a full-length mirror against the wall brings a relaxed mood to the room.

2. Wood framed mirror in the kitchen. 

Instantly create a homier vibe in the kitchen with the addition of a wood framed mirror. Large or small, propped on a shelf or hung from the wall, it all works. The key is to choose a mirror that looks as if it belongs in a living room or bedroom — something with a bit of warmth to it.

3. Artist mirror flanked with art.

Whether placed over a console in the entry or above a buffet in the dining room, this combination will not fail you. Start with the oil-painting mirror, and beef it up with vase flowers or small Small sculptures.

4. Pretty mirrors behind bedside lamps. 

No, you won’t be able to look into them, but that is not the point here. Placing wall mirrors behind lamps is a great way to ramp up the glow of your lamplight — the pretty frames are stunning.

5. Mirror across from a window. 

Increase light and views by placing a big wall mirror directly across from a window. Reflecting a beautiful view is ideal, but placing a round mirror across from any window that gets good light will make your room feel sunnier.

6. Mirrored back-splash .

Open a small kitchen by using mirror instead of tile as a back-splash behind the sink or range.

7. Full-length mirrors in a home gym. 

A giant wall mirror is functional but does make your room look more like a public gym. Keep an eye on your form while maintaining a homey feel with one or more full-length mirrors hung or propped against the wall.

8. Round mirror in place of a medicine cabinet.

You could use a mirror of any shape in place of the standard medicine cabinet, but a round mirror would be the greatest departure from the expected — its curves break up all of those sharp angles and straight lines in a typical bathroom.
