Mirrors are wonderful to decorate with, for so many reasons—they reflect light, they open up spaces, and they just make rooms look better in general.
Mirrors can open up a dimly lit or tight space; they reflect light making any room feel bigger and brighter.

Overlapping different types of mirrors on and above a fireplace mantle, a sideboard or a hall table is a great way to add visual interest. You can layer them with framed photographs or artwork and other decorative objects.

Mirrors are of course practical, whether getting dressed in the morning or checking your appearance before you leave the house, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have great style. A mirror is a great opportunity to use a highly decorative frame that makes a strong style statement and adds glamour to your home.

Mirrors are a great way to catch the reflection of a view so it can be seen even by someone with their back to it.
