Hang large mirrors over main focal points in the home like fireplaces and entry halls. Hang two identical mirrors side-by-side to bring height to a bedroom.
Open up a small kitchen by installing a mirrored backsplash on the main wall, typically behind a stove or sink. Lining small spaces with mirrors magnifies surrounding light to create a sleek, open design.
Be creative and repurpose old mirrors with a fresh coat of paint. Don’t forget that old mirrors in several different sizes and shapes are an ideal way to show off a collection.
Don’t worry if you can’t find the exact shape and size or a mirror. Customize and complement your own piece of mirrored glass with a frame. Have fun choosing unusual materials like spoons to create a makeshift frame.
Hang small mirrors from ribbons to create a dramatic accent to the wall. Place them in small living spaces or bedrooms to create the illusion of a large space and to maximize light.
Pick up the light and reflection of the mirror with other mirrored accessories. Place mirrored trays, candleholders and picture frames near the wall-mounted mirrors to catch the light and create a sparkling effect.
