IN A SALON STYLE ARRANGEMENT.

ON A WINDOW.
A mirror can help focus the eye in a room. Sometimes a window or a wide expanse of glass can be featured with a mirror. Placing a mirror between two windows tricks the eye into thinking there is another window there and helps maximize natural light. Casually propping a full-length mirror against the wall brings a relaxed mood to the room.

AS WALL TILES.
A wall can be transformed with the use of mirrored tiles. Intrigue can be added by using a mosaic of distressed mirrors.

Freestanding mirrors can be used to hide unsightly things, such as cluttered open shelving.
