For most of us, there are always things around our house we’d like to change. Some are easy—like adding new furniture or updating the wall art—but others pose a little more of a challenge. One of the most difficult issues to address is the size of a room. Short of doing an extensive renovation or outright moving, there’s not much you can do to make a room larger.
But what if there was a simple solution that made a room appear larger, and acted as a decoration, as well? Wouldn’t you want to try it? As it turns out, such a solution does exist: decorative wall mirrors. These simple yet stunning decorations add some drama to a room and make it appear larger by reflecting the space back at you. You can try adding a large full length wall mirror, window pane mirror, or other styles to make a small room appear larger depending on your personal preference and the wall space you have available.
Large decorative mirrors can also act as a stunning complement to the décor already in a room. Have a gorgeous landscape painting on the wall of a small room? Add shutter style mirrors on either side to draw the eye to the painting while making the room feel larger. It’s a décor and functionality win-win.
To help get ideas flowing of how you can incorporate decorative mirrors into your home, we’ve gathered a list of some stunning examples below. These are sure to fill your mind with all the ways you can add function and beauty to your home with mirrors!
