By placing a mirror on the wall in almost any room in your home, you can change a mildly decorated space into a classic masterpiece. Placement of the hung mirror is critical. Keep in mind the reflection that you see when gazing into a mirror should be soothing to the eye. For instance, the reflection may be that of a fancy lamp, piece of artwork or a glamorous chandelier. What you don’t want to do is hang a mirror so that it reflects the pile of clutter on the kitchen counter that you are trying to hide. Hanging a mirror on the wall in the dining room is the most popular decorating trick. Once the mirror is hung, you will know why. The mirror will create the illusion of space and light. This is by far, the most popular spot for a mirror to be hung or rested against the wall. Be careful hanging a mirror in a busy room. This can cause a reverse effect on your decorating plan. Placement is important and the reflection is even more so. If your room is busy with lots of furniture and artwork, you may not need the mirror. What you want the mirror to do, in essence, is make the room bigger. So the room will look as if the wall is not even there. Remember, enhancing a wall with one mirror, can change the feel of a room, open the space up and change the mood of all who enter, so get decorating.
