How you decorate your space directly impacts how big the room feels. Even small areas can feel open and more spacious with the right decorating techniques. Mirrors are just one way that you can make a tiny bathroom or undersized bedroom seem larger. Learn more about the best strategies for incorporating custom mirrors into your home.
How to Decorate With Mirrors
1. Reflect Light
Darkness can intensify cramped, closed-in feelings. To avoid this issue, place a mirror behind a table or standing lamp. Putting reflective surfaces here will strategically amplify the light source, allowing you to illuminate your space more effectively.
2. Create Height
Floor-length mirrors are best used in small spaces that feature low ceilings. If your ceilings in your small room are 8 feet high or under, consider leaning a floor-length mirror against an open wall. This verticality will create the illusion of more headroom.
Replacing normal closet doors with reflective ones can have a similar result without taking up floor space. To maximize the effect, consider having an entire mirror wall installed.
3. Replace Windows
If your room has a long wall that lacks windows, create a faux one using a mirror. Have custom panes placed in a freestanding window frame for a whimsical appearance. Alternatively, you can invest in several small square mirrors and mount them in orderly rows, so that they mimic the look of a window.
4. Add Verve
Get creative and make an art installation out of your mirrors. Mix and match a few shapes, sizes, and finishes for an eclectic look. The variation will serve as a focal point of the room, taking any focus away on room size.
