For a long time mirrors have been used for interior design purposes. These reflective objects bring light to any room in your house. A mirror can also make a room appear awkward, so it is important to know their purpose and how to place them in right spots in your home. One of the main reasons for placing a mirror in your home is to reflect light and create the illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is or simply to enhance the beauty of the interior.

A large mirror in a small room can create the illusion of depth, space and height depending on the positioning of the mirror. Putting a large mirror on the wall of a small room essentially makes the room look more spacious. Horizontal mirrors should be used in narrow hallways staircases and foyers; this creates the feeling of a wider space.

You can make use of mirrors to create stunning interiors. Installing a mirror in the right spot can help make large bulky furniture look less over whelming. Mirrors can be used to give a room or hallway a different feel.
