The frame the mirror sits in is the key to having your mirror complement, or even define the decorating style in your room. Frames come in all materials and textures. Try a distressed wood frame for a French Country feel, a wrought iron or embossed metal for a rich Tuscan or Mediterranean look, or sleek chrome for a contemporary room.
Place a mirror over the fireplace. For most home's the fireplace is already the focal point of the room in which it resides. Add more emphasis to the fireplace by placing a beautifully framed mirror above the mantel. This will enlarge the room, and add a reflective surface to the décor you place on the mantle. From candle sticks to seasonal décor, a fireplace begs for a gorgeous mirror to adorn it.
Prepare your handyman tools.You will need a few basic tools to hang mirrors: hammer, small nails, a measuring tape and perhaps some way of checking to see that the mirrors are level. Hardware stores and home-decorating stores now carry a wide variety of hanging clips, wire and other devices that are perfecting for locating mirrors in the room. (Don't hesitate to place mirrors in places other than on the walls. Some mirrors will work very well on a stand if the placement is right.
