Mirrors are an essential item for every home, but they also function beautifully as decoration. If you're looking to spruce up your home, check out these mirror decorating tips to make a big impact with little effort. 

Mirror Panels 

If you have a long hallway or a bare wall, create mirror panels by either using custom-made mirrors that are the length of the wall, or simply placing several smaller mirrors side-by-side. You can also experiment with various tints for a more abstract feel. 

Antique Mirrors 

A specked mirror might not be ideal for putting on your makeup, but it looks great in a classically furnished living or dining room. The antique look adds elegance. 

Go Big 

Get a mirror custom made to fill up the majority of a wall, and choose a beautiful frame. It's a bold statement, but shows style and will add a feeling of space and light to any room. 

Go Double 

Hang two identical mirrors side-by-side to create a more dynamic and interesting look in your living space. You'll also get the benefit of more light reflection. 

See double

Place a mirror to reflect your collection of candles to create the illusion of double the flames. 

Create a theme

Place multiple, different shaped mirrors close to each other and connect them with a theme using the frames. For example, maybe all the frames are made of the same material, or are all the same color.
