Mirrors are multipurpose – they looks amazing as decor pieces, you can check yourself out before you leave the house, and it can play illusions like making a space feel taller or brighter. Lately I’ve been hearting a variety of different styles and living vicariously through those who own the Anthropologie gleaming primrose mirror. One day that mirror will be mine but for now I thought I’d share some tips that I’ve learned when it comes to styling a mirror and my fave picks! Let’s dive in.
add some light
Don’t have a lot of windows in a room? Hang a mirror on a window-less wall to give the illusion of a window. This works because light bounces off of the glass and reflect the elements surrounding it!
Here’s an awesome farmhouse inspired window mirror:
+ another great option for an arched pane window mirror from Walmart
add height + length
The easiest way to make a room appear longer or taller is to add a mirror, IMO. To make a room look taller the goal is to draw the eyes upward, so think full length mirrors. If you want the allure of a longer room, stick with floor length but make it twice as wide so that the mirror takes up the majority of the wall.
See how this mirror brings your eyes up almost all the way to the ceiling? This makes the room feel taller because it gives the illusion that the wall is taller than it appears.
An oversized mirror hung horizontally can transform a space and make it appear wider or longer due to the reflection.
mirrors for decor
There are tons of mirrors that are designed to be more of a statement piece than an item you actually utilize and although to some that might seem silly – let me change your mind with these adorable finds.
