Having a mirror in your home is an absolute necessity, however we like the idea of taking this one step further. A mirror can add so much to a home, be it in a decorative sense or by adding extra depth to a room. Here are a couple of ideas from people who have used mirrors not just for their functional purpose, but also as a piece of art.

Secret Garden Mirror

This fantastic idea of creating a ‘secret garden’ by placing a mirror in your garden, creates a beautiful illusion that is almost fairytale-like. Getting the placement right is very important, and looks incredible when surrounded by shrubbery.

Gallery Mirror Wall

Interestingly shaped vintage mirrors, placed in a ‘gallery wall’ style, can work wonders for a room. In this picture, the bathroom has been decorated in this style beautifully, and allows the different mirrors to bounce the light off from the adjacent windows.

Statement Mirror

Rather than opting for a classic square shaped mirror, why not try something different. With the trend still firmly on geometric shapes, we think these mirrors are stunning, and they give you the breadth to arrange them in different ways.

Mirror to create more space

Mirrors can create the illusion of much bigger spaces and can reflect extra light back into the room. By either hanging or propping up a large scale mirror, you can trick the eye into thinking the space has doubled.
