While mirrors are commonly associated with the bedroom and the bathroom, the truth is they can be used all over the home to make any room appear bigger.
Here are our top tips for how to use mirrors to make any room look bigger.
Larger Than Life
The bigger the mirror, the more light it will reflect, creating the illusion of a much larger room. Seek out over-sized mirrors to make small spaces feel large and inviting. The bright white styling and arched crown molding frame of this Summer House Mirror draws the eye upward to make a small bedroom feel fit for a queen.
Seek out mirrors with a rounded top, inspired by the arched windows of Old World cathedrals, like our Amiel Arch Mirror or Dillingham Aged Black Mirror. This type of mirror will easily mimic an extra window and make your room feel much bigger than it is.
Keep It Light & Bright
Painting and decorating your small room with light colors can make it feel more spacious. Extend this color palette to your mirrors as well to enhance the sense of spaciousness. A white framed mirror is the perfect accompaniment to an all-white room.
Round Mirrors For Welcoming Entryways
A small or narrow entryway can instantly feel bigger with the placement of a mirror. A porthole-inspired round mirror, like the Paula Dean Dogwood Blossom Round Mirror, can add a bit of rustic charm to your front entrance. Want to make the space feel even more open? Try a grouping of 2-3 different sized round mirrors to lighten up the room.
Further The Reflections with Candles
By placing the flickering warmth of candles in front of a mirror, you instantly add depth and visual interest to a room. Even if candles can’t make your room actually bigger, they can definitely make it feel cozier. We love how the poplar solids and birch veneers of this Rustic White Landscape Mirror pair with off-white earthenware candlesticks for a look suitable for any Southern home.
While this last tip isn’t actually a mirror, a glass table top can add an extra layer of reflection that can make any room feel light and airy. The Coylin Cocktail Table by Ashley Furniture is a perfect example of this. By pairing a beveled clear glass table top with sleek and modern brushed nickel supports, this coffee table feels like it barely takes up any space at all.
