1. Use Mirrored Furniture

There are ways to incorporate mirrors without just floor and wall mirrors. You can get a little creative. If you prefer your wall decor to be art, you can still add mirrors throughout your home. One innovative and luxurious way to do this is with mirrored furniture. 

There is a lot of beautiful mirrored furniture on the market. You can shop styles from bed frames, to credenzas, to dressers. Mirrored furniture will add a layer of dimension to your space. It will also make your room look more elegant. 

If you want to add mirrored furniture, opt for only one or two pieces. Use these pieces as a statement. Otherwise, it can become overwhelming. There are also other things to take into consideration. For example, you’ll have to be willing to clean the mirrored surface. This will show fingerprints more quickly than some wood furniture. 

2. Place Mirrors Opposite of the Light

One of our favorite benefits of mirrors is that they can add additional lightness and brightness to your space. This is especially useful in small areas without much natural light. To take advantage of this benefit, be strategic with your positioning. 

You’ll want to place the mirror opposite where natural light comes in. This will allow the mirror to reflect natural light and brighten the space. This means that you’ll want the mirror parallel to a window. This will transform your space. If you want to magnify the natural light, choose a large mirror. This will make a massive difference in your room.

3. Use Multiple Mirrors 

If you want to really make a statement with your mirrors, consider adding a few! You don’t have to stop at just one. You can act as though mirrors are just artwork, primarily if you use unique styles and designs, such as a gold hexagon mirror. 

Shop different shapes and styles to make an impact. This is a unique take on the popular gallery wall of pictures. You can position your mirrors as if they were a gallery wall. This can look both edgy and elegant at the same time. It also takes away the stress of choosing pictures that work well together. 

To best plan a gallery wall, lay the mirrors out on the floor first. Once you find a positioning you like, you can move them to the wall. 

4. Create a Wall of Mirrors

Can you imagine an entire wall made of mirrors? This is a perfect way to add drama to the room. It also is an incredible way to add style and make a space look bigger. To create a wall of mirrors, purchase simple square mirrors without a frame or mirrored paneling. Mirrored paneling would be the easiest to install. Furthermore, it is made to be lighter, so it won’t damage your wall. 

If you have low ceilings, a wall of mirrors can make your room feel taller. This idea is an excellent addition to an entryway, bathroom, or small closet. You can add another level of design with antique or textured mirrors. 

5. When in Doubt, Go Bigger

Not sure what size of a mirror to buy? We always recommend going bigger rather than smaller. Purchasing a piece of artwork (or a mirror) that's too small will make a space look unbalanced. A large mirror will always look elegant and intentional. 

If you’re deciding between mirrors, choose the bigger option! This will look luxurious, and it adds to the practicality. 

6. Scout Out Beautiful Frames

When it comes to mirrors, the mirror itself is only half of the battle! The other important part is the frame of the mirror. You want the frame to complement your space and add to your design theme. This may mean you opt for a wooden or steel frame, or maybe even a hexagon gold mirror! 

To find a beautiful frame:

  • Consider what other colors and design elements you have in your space. If you have a rustic or natural theme, opt for wood.
  • If you prefer the industrial design, consider opting for a metal frame.
  • Find a frame that adds to your style

7. Put Mirrors in the Kitchen

One place where mirrors are rarely used is the kitchen. However, the kitchen can be a great place to add mirrors! In fact, there are many ways to incorporate mirrors into the heart of the home. One of our favorite ways to do this is with a mirrored backsplash. Shop from different backsplash sizes, such as rectangular subway tile or elegant hexagonal tile. 

However, it doesn’t just end there. If you don’t want a mirrored backsplash, you could add mirrored kitchen cabinets. You could add mirrors to a few standout cabinets instead of glass. This will add a unique flare to your kitchen that you don’t see often. 

8. Consider a Textured Mirror

When you think of a mirror, you probably think of a flat, clean surface. However, there are other elements of mirrors. In fact, you can opt for different types of glass. This can add another layer of style to your mirror purchase. For example, find a hexagonal mirror with gorgeous antiqued glass.

Antiqued mirrors are becoming more popular. We love the unique finish of these mirrors. If coupled with the right frame, these mirrors won’t look dated. Instead, they will look beautifully styled. They can be the perfect addition to a traditional or rustic home. 

9. Add Mirrored Accessories

Mirrors don’t have to be the focal point of the room. Instead, they can be used as accents around the house. One way to do this is by purchasing mirrored accessories. This may include mirrored trays on your coffee table, coasters, or even candle holders. These are lower commitments than buying a large (and expensive) wall mirror. 

If you can’t fully commit to a large mirror, then opt for small accents that can add a feeling of luxury to your space. 

10. Use As a Focal Point

As a general rule, you can put mirrors wherever you would place artwork. This means that there are spaces where a mirror could be a focal point in your home! Instead of using artwork to balance your dining room, add a mirror. 

Using mirrors as a focal point is luxe and elegant. This will completely transform the look of your space. Furthermore, you won’t have to put as much planning into what art to buy! 

11. Add a Mirror Over the Mantle

If you have a fireplace and mantle, you know the struggle of placing artwork above it. Many people put a television above their mantle. However, if you don’t like using a television, you’ll need a statement art piece. We recommend a mirror! 

This will add some beauty to the fireplace. It is a crisp, clean look that won’t compete with the wood of the mantle or the fireplace's stone. This way, you can keep the eye focused on the architecture of the fireplace. 

12. Use for Practicality

As much as mirrors are used for design, they are also for practicality! Because of this, place them where you need them most. For example, having a floor-length mirror in your entryway is a great idea. This way, you can take a look at your outfit before you leave your home. 

You may also find a mirror above your vanity helpful. This can help as you prepare for a night on the town. When purchasing a mirror, think about how to make it functional as well as beautiful. 

13. Add a Pop of Color

Mirrors don’t have to be boring. In fact, they can be fun! You can even add a pop of color with your favorite mirror. If you want a bright color such as blue or yellow, the frame of your mirror is a great way to do this. 

14. Take It Outside

Mirrors don't have to be indoors! You can take them into the garden as well. You can place a mirror adjacent to your plants to magnify the greenery you have outside. This will add texture and brightness to your space. 

If you have a smaller patio, a mirror is a great way to make it look larger. 


We love adding mirrors to our spaces! If you get reactive, there are many ways to incorporate a mirror. One of our favorite ways to add a mirror is with a unique shape, such as a hexagonal mirror. Whether you want it to be a statement piece, or just a simple decor piece, you can elevate your space.
