Top It Off
Set a large mirror on a tabletop, leaning it up against the wall. This is a casual yet sophisticated look, perfect for a console in the hallway or a dresser in the bedroom. To secure the mirror, use either a French cleat or picture wire and a nail.
Fill a Void
A lamentable result of so many staircase designs is “dead” wall space. It’s difficult to decorate this real estate, so why not try filling the void with a hodgepodge of mirrors? An added benefit: You’ll make the room appear more expansive.
Door to Possibilities
Repurpose an old door into an eye-catching leaning mirror. Paint the piece in a color that complements your decorating scheme, and for added functionality, attach vintage hooks to hang coats, hats, or bags.
Reflect on Your Thoughts
You don’t need to see yourself in every mirror! Devise your own piece of artwork by simply stenciling an inspirational quote on a mirror; strategically placed, it can still create the illusion of more space.
Antique mirrors, removed from their frames, have been hung together here to create a gallery wall. Each mirror is a different size, but the bare edges common to all somehow manage subtly to unify the look.
Make a Splash
You can easily purchase a mirrored tile backsplash or with a little DIY handiwork, you can recreate this distinctive look. It features reflective coasters and clear beveled tiles, with paint chips backing the latter for pops of welcome color.
Spread the Sunshine
Limited outdoor space? Consider adding a large mirror to a wall on your patio. This mirror with lattice inlay accomplishes a few worthy goals: While providing visual interest, it also makes the yard look bigger and brighter.
