Mirrors add a touch of magic to a room. Not only do they double the light (and the view), they seem to expand space and open portals into another world. A mirror in a kitchen is an unexpected delight. Oftentimes, the layout of the room will determine where or where not, an oven or sink can be placed. And because these elements may end up along a wall or other inconvenient spot, why not feel part of the room when you cook or clean up, instead of like a naughty child sent to the corner. This gorgeous mirror reflects the delicious sights of a steaming kettle or pot and makes a dramatic statement.
Create a view where there isn’t one by placing a mirror where a window might have gone.
A mirror can be used in place of art. By raising the mirror slightly, you’ll be able to work without wondering who that person is staring back at you.
Beautiful shapes and materials like gilt, painted and carved woods and etched or beveled glass will dress up a modest piece of furniture.
