Plain or decorative, mirrors are effective tools to add extra light and depth to a room. They can make small rooms look more spacious, and dark rooms more lit up. And what’s more, they are such easy additions. So it’s no wonder that increasingly mirrors are being included in decor themes as independent decor elements.

Choosing the size of the mirror depends on the size of the room, its purpose and of course the illusion you want it to create. A full length mirror is obviously useful in bedrooms, but not necessarily elsewhere. For example, it might be better to have a large mirror in a living room that reflects natural light and substantially illuminate it.
