When used correctly, a large mirror not only creates the illusion of space and dimension, but it also amplifies light – brightening up even the gloomiest room. Here are three reasons why you should incorporate oversized mirrors into your living space.

Sometimes a bedside lamp just doesn’t cut it. Amplify the light in your bedroom by strategically placing a floor mirror to reflect natural sunlight from a window. Complete the airy look with light Bedding and walls.
2. Make a Statement

Add a decorative touch to your space by selecting a mirror with a unique shape. Maintain balance by pairing it with furniture that has different curves or angles. The architectural contrast is key!
3. Add Visual Interest

White walls? No problem. A tall, slim mirror adds dimension to an otherwise plain room by breaking up the space. Select a sleek frame in a dark hue to maximize contrast.
