"Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Who's the Cleverest of Them All?"
The mirrors used in ancient Greece and the Roman Empire were made from slightly convex disks of polished metal – a far cry from the perfectly flat, highly reflective mirrors made from glass that we enjoy today. We’re all guilty of taking a quick glance at ourselves as we walk past a mirror, but mirrors are not just for self admiration. Have you ever looked around your home and thought, I wish this room felt more spacious, I wish this room were brighter or I wish we could bring more of that beautiful view inside? Clever use of mirrors is a great way to grant all of these wishes; they are a small room’s best friend.
We usually confine the use of mirrors to the bathroom, bedroom, and maybe one or two decorative mirrors in the hallway or living area. But mirrors can be used in lots of different ways, and in pretty much every room in your home. Incorporate a couple of these clever designer tips and tricks to instantly increase the feeling of space around you.
