Okay, so we’re not sure that scenario played out exactly as mentioned. But if you’re looking to add appealing light beyond extra windows and installing different light fixtures adding a mirror is a fantastic way to do it. It’s also much easier to do and can be added and replaced easily as you evolve the style of your room.
Many of us wish our living spaces were bigger or more open, with an airy sense of flow. Mirrors are a great way to create the illusion of space, even in small bedrooms or studio apartments.
The orderly among us might prefer the clean lines of a rectangle or circle but there’s no denying softer, sometimes asymmetric mirror shapes are increasingly popular in minimalist or modern homes, but can work in other spaces too. The real question is: frame or no frame?
Oversized floor mirrors
Once confined to the bedroom or dressing room and used to appraise your outfit while getting ready, a full-size mirror that rests on the floors is now a statement decorative element in many modern interiors. They are often chosen to lean against a wall rather than being hung, and are perfect in a tall entryway or hall, a living space or bedroom. Wider options, and custom-made large-scale options are also cropping up regularly in stylish interiors. The bonus is they make the ultimate place to take a great outfit photo!

The earliest known manufactured mirrors (approximately 8000 years old) have been found in Anatolia, or south central modern-day Turkey, so it’s fair to say they’ve been used as a design element for a long time. It’s why vintage or antique mirrors with decorative and ornate framing will always have a place in interior trends for those who love an elegant, traditional look and that’s certainly true at the moment.
Bringing the outdoors in, continues to be a theme that infuses the way we style our homes and natural materials are one way to do that. They also give textural interest and look great paired with plants in and around your living spaces.
Modern and forward thinking, although less functional than a traditional option, coloured glass mirrors combine a stunning piece of art with a reflective surface.
