Wide Open...

Everyone wants more space… sometimes its not always possible so why not create the illusion of space.

A large mirror in a small room creates the illusion of depth, this is the one time when out of scale is good, so don’t be afraid to go big.

Mirrors come in all shapes and sizes, with a variety of frames, some more ornate than others. Choose a simple Oak frame for a clean modern look or a more ornate Rococo style for a more traditional look.

Add some depth…

The hallway for me is always a mirror must as its always advisable to check out your appearance before leaving the house – Its good to check that you did in fact brush your barnet and that you have put some make up on.  If using above a sideboard then why not buy the matching mirror - check out Hallowood range of real Oak mirrors starting from just £46.80.

By shear reflection mirrors naturally bounce light from its source to another surface -This can be really useful if you have a space that has few natural sources of light. Use strategically placed mirrors to bounce light into the darker areas that are further away from natural light sources. Don’t forget thought that a mirror will reflect what it sees so heavily patterned wall paper or curtains or a dark wall will reflect too.  

Go with the Trend...

Mirrors can be the perfect way to embrace a popular design trend without having to fully commit to more permanent furniture pieces such as sofas. Why not try a Moroccan inspired mirror to bring home a touch of eastern promise. On a tight budget then why not Up-cycle a charity shop find with a coat of fresh paint.  

So no matter where you put one in your home, mirrors are defiantly an interior design must!
