Can´t get enough of using mirrors when decorating a room. This living room was quie small and narrow. The large mirrors opened up the space and made it look more appealing. Large end to end mirrors in a small room creates a depth and space. Instantly doubling the size and at the same time improving the lighting in a room.

Mirror sure does help with lightening and space plus it can be used to hide imperfections as well. I really liked the way you staged the living room in your recent projects. It looks great!
Large mirrors are particularly effective in tight areas such as hallways or office nooks, whereas small mirrors only emphasize the lack of space. The one exception to the bigger-is-better rule: mirrors that are dominated by a bulky frame.
A good rule of thumb (or eye) is to choose a mirror that's around two thirds of the size of the furniture it's hanging above. Use a paper template to help you map out its position if you're not sure what size will fit your space – your room's colour and natural light levels will play a part too.
As a rule, the mirror should be several inches less than the vanity or sink area. As an example, if you've chosen a 48″ single sink vanity, you should then select a mirror width (frame included) that doesn't exceed 48 inches. To make sure the mirror doesn't overpower the room, aim for 42-44 inches total.
Thanks for thiis
