If you have a compact dining room or maybe a small dining nook in your house, use framed mirrors for wall behind the table to make it spacious yet cozy at the same time. But if you have a formal dining room, use them to highlight your antique dishes or expensive china. Match the framework with the decor of the room and add a tasteful touch. Similar to the living room and bedrooms, you can experiment with textures, finishes and panels.
Decorating with mirrors is a superb way to stretch a home's decorating dollar. It may even do more than stretch. It may also pay back dollars if the homeowner is in the market to sell his home. A $999 or less interior design idea may be the difference between a low and a desirable offer. This is known in the industry as "dressing up" a home. Homes that previously languished for weeks or month on the market sold within days after being dressed up.
Make the room brighter. Use them to enhance the natural light in a room by hanging one across from a window so it reflects the landscape outside. They're a great alternative to a traditional painting or print. Situate the mirror so it doesn't cause glare. Mirrors can be problematic if they're placed across from a window with a western or southern exposure. Multiply the wide of the space. Mirror a long wall in a skinny space to double the visual width of the room. This is a great trick for halls, entryways, narrow dining rooms, gym rooms and master bathrooms.
