Mirrors are an excellent way to decorate the home. They are made in various different shapes and sizes so it’s easy to find something that will fit your room or space in your house.

Mirrors can also be used with tables to add some symmetry and visual interest. The mirror should be placed right above or alongside the table to give it a sense of balance and order. Placing mirrors in dining rooms is also a great idea because its reflective qualities can make it appear as if there is another window, thus making the room seem brighter and airier than it truly is.

Adding a mirror right by the entryway is also an excellent idea. It’s best if you can put one that is elongated so it makes it look as if there are two of them, making the hallway longer and bigger than its actual size. If you do not have enough space to place a full-length mirror, then using a tri-fold mirror with one panel placed horizontally is good.

Mirrors can be used for closet doors as well, especially if you want to make it look like there is another window behind. It’s basically the same idea as the entryway mirror; it creates depth and makes it look bigger than its actual size. Just remember that if you are planning on using mirrors for closet doors, measure first to ensure that they’ll fit your space before buying them.
