At the risk of sounding vain… I love mirrors! They make a small room appear larger, reflect natural light, and add a dash of glam to every space (always a bonus!).
With mirrors, larger is always better. To make a room feel huge, cover an entire wall. But, a grouping of smaller mirrors that are related in color or style will work wonders, too.
There are plenty of gorgeous, but pricey mirrors available. But, if you are cash-strapped, a thrift shop mirror with a frame that can be painted, embellished, or enlarged through inexpensive mouldings will also do the trick!
One of my favorite sources for stunning mirrors that are handcrafted, but won’t break the bank, is Yarbough Design. Yarbough Design offers an amazing selection of high-quality art pieces… that just so happen to also be reflective! Click here to see the wide variety of sizes, shapes, and patterns.
Here are our top tips for using mirrors effectively:
- Stick with a simple frame – go big on the mirror, not the frame
- Double the impact and pair your mirror with a light source (natural or artificial)
- Place it at the end of a room, so that it gives an illusion of depth
