almost every room in our homes yet they are under appreciated and taken for 
granted. Mirrors come in all shapes and sizes. Some come with bright, bold 

exteriors and others just delicately simple, yet beautiful. Using a mirror can give 
any room that fresh, bold design look. In this post we take a look at what some of 

HGTV’s designers had to say about this everyday decorating tool.


Designer Celia Berliner says, “Using a framed, full-size mirror and resting it on the 
wall can become incredible asset.” These types of mirrors can make a dramatic 

statement even in a small space. They can be useful on an accent wall in a 
bedroom even. Similar to Celia’s ideas, designer Andreas Charalambous says by 

using an oversized mirror it can relect the natural light and enhance an open 

loor plan.


Go mirror crazy! Amy Bubier suggests using mirrors as pieces of art in the modern 
home. She says, “The scale of the mirrors should be proportional to each other 

and the wall space.” She also says to avoid using small mirrors on a large wall.


Whether you are on a budget or just looking for that one conversation piece to 
complete a room, using a mirror should be on your list. Whether you choose a 

piece that is bold and loud or something that is understated yet classic using a 
mirror could give that room the look you have always wanted.
