Mirrors have been used in interior design for centuries.  They are a unique blend of furniture and wall art that give instant polish to any room with little effort.  One of the many benefits of using mirrors in design is the way they bring light and depth into a space by reflecting and emphasizing views and colors from not only artwork, but adjacent focal walls.  A major bonus of using mirrors to decorate your home is their ability to make a room look larger, making them the perfect design element for small spaces, so don’t be afraid to go big.

Strategically placing mirrors is a great way to reflect beloved artwork and/or focal walls.
