A wall mirror is more than just a place to check your makeup and tidy up your messy bun as you run out the door. Of course, it's a must-have for all those day-to-day touchups and quick outfit checks before work or a hot date, but a decorative mirror can also be a important accent in the overall decor of your home.
First of all, mirrors reflect light, which is super important if you live in a tiny (or dark) apartment. Place two mirrors across from each other in a dimly lit room and you'll be surprised how much lighter, airier, and larger the whole space seems as a result. Or hang a mirror in a narrow hallway and it will catch light from around the corner so the space feels more expansive.
Even a small mirror can make a difference in a space. Unusual shapes add visual interest to a gallery wall, and metallic or painted finishes can add a pop of brightness to a neutral room. A graphic mirror breaks up the square and rectangular shapes of framed artwork and can bring in texture through natural materials like wood, leather, and rope. Whether it's above a vanity, in your entryway, or propped above a mantel, a decorative mirror is the perfect statement piece you'll want to make sure you have.
