Mirrors may be a basic household staple, but they’re also great design tools. Whether you’re trying to open up a small space or just put a finishing touch on your décor, there’s a mirror that’s right for every room.

Expand Your Space

If you’re dealing with a small room, mirrors are a great way to create the illusion of a larger space. And because they reflect light, they’re also a surefire way to brighten up a room.

Power in Numbers

Multiples add more dimension and depth than a single mirror. Choose ones with thick frames for an extra-bold effect!

Accent Away

Even small mirrors can stand as a focal point of a room. Choose a design that compliments the rest of your décor – such as these antique-like versions – and accent mirrors can be a surprising way to pull the whole room together.
