Mirror’s are an ingenious way of making a space seem larger, reflecting natural light where it’s lacking, or a place to catch a glimpse of your fabulous self and admire.  Here are several mirror inspirations in different ways to use mirrors in your design.

Bathroom Mirrors

It’s generally a staple to have a mirror in any bathroom, but to make it stylish and match the decor of the bathroom is what it’s all about.  There are plenty of different ways to make the mirrors in the bathroom beautiful.

This mirror is extremely elegant and enormous.  While the mirror is over the bathtub in this bathroom, you have to stand up to actually look in it.  This is more of an art piece than an actual functional mirror.

This is over the top elegance, the dual matching sinks with this enormous mirror in a beautiful white room to reflect all the light with a gorgeous fireplace in the back round.  This mirror suits a very important purpose, showing off the beauty of this room.

Mirrors In Your Living Room

Your living room or family room are the places you tend to center yourself with guests and family the most and with all those people in one space mirrors are a great tool to open the room making it feel larger and a great reflector of light.

Mirrors Making Small Spaces Larger

Just as we adore natural lighting, the benefit of mirrors is opening a room up.  In a smaller space it can give the illusion of being much larger, and on top of that another use of reflecting natural light!

Mirrors are brilliant for tons of functional reasons, but they don’t solely have to serve the purpose of making a room feel larger or reflecting light, sometimes they can be artwork in your design.
