That mirror on the wall isn’t just for checking your hair on your way our the door. Sure they serve a great practical purpose, but there’s always something a little magical about the right use of mirrors in any room. And no, we’re not talking the mirror magic your favorite evil queen uses to check in on her step-daughter. The right wall mirror can add new life to your room. Whether you want your wall mirror to add light, space, depth, texture, dimension, or simply to serve as a piece of artwork on its own, we’ve tracked down seven ways you can use wall mirrors to really transform your space.
1 – In lieu of window
Look, we might love almost everything about a new house, or new room, but few spaces are free of problem areas. That’s when unique solutions are called for. In this case, the wall of glass windows and skylights are the room’s main windows, but that can leave the remaining walls feeling too expansive heavy. So, behold the wall mirror doubling as a window above the dresser. This is a clever solution for a room without enough windows!
2 – Room expander
Some rooms are small, that’s just a fact. While they may function perfectly well, we often long for more space–even if it’s just an illusion. That’s where large wall mirrors can work their magic. Serving not only to expand the feel of a room, but to increase the amount of light which can make a space feel more airy. Before you decide to move house or knock out a wall, try this far cheaper option first!
