Mirrors are magical.


Mirrors are magical. A well-placed mirror enhances natural light, opens up small spaces and adds an extra wow factor to any room. Whether you're on the hunt for ornate frames, unusual shapes or or just a gleaming surface to admire your outfits in, here are some top tips on incorporating them into your home.



For rooms with either small windows or even no window at all, window-style mirrors provide the illusion of space and light. Be on trend with black frames for a truly elegant addition to your home.


Alternatively, a distressed rust effect window mirror would be perfect outside - nestled amongst the foliage or mounted on brick - to create your very own secret garden.


Lining a wall with a mirror behind furniture such as a chest of drawers can trick the eye into thinking the room is more spacious. Add a table lamp and a plant for a gorgeous glow when needed.SUPER_TALL_TIN_TILE_CREAM_MIRROR_LORES


Circular ship’s mirrors are fantastic in bathrooms. A round mirror will differ from the usually angular edges of furniture, making the mirror a centrepiece for your room. The nautical aspect of a round mirror with a rope hanger gives a rustic edge to traditional, contemporary and eclectically furnished homes.


Similarly, extra large circular mirrors work wonders in living rooms. Open up the space with a bold statement mirror above a sofa to reflect light and add variety to the décor.


Instead of settling on just one large mirror, creating a multiple mirror display is a fun way to decorate a wall space and as a practical light enhancer. Bring together an assortment of frames and sizes to construct what can become a striking DIY art piece!

Picking out the right colours and frame designs for your room is an exciting process, and you can even combine the mirrors with photographs or prints for a quirky spectacle in your bedrooms and hallways.
