Reflect Your Style with Mirrors

Mirrors can open up small spaces, reflect light to brighten a dark area, and act as a focal point that sets the entire tone of a room. Here are some ideas on how to use some of the most popular wall mirror styles to accent your living space.

Frameless Mirrors

Simple in design, mirrors that lack a border or frame have an understated style that gives you endless decorating options. A large frameless mirror can create the illusion of depth to enlarge a small room. Its clean lines also offer a low-key element to rooms that are already busy. Pair one with artwork or mixing one in other more intricate wall décor to enrich the space.

Leaner Mirrors

Statuesque and dramatic, leaner mirrors aren't installed, but placed on a floor and rested against the wall. Their large size makes them perfect for dressing rooms, bathrooms, or to reflect light out from an unused corner in a living room or hall. Their tall height and grand scale also makes them an excellent choice for adding a sense of space.
