Mirrors are not just for the bathroom and bedroom. There are so many great ways to utilize wall mirrors in decorating. Some of my favorite uses for a well chosen wall mirror or a grouping of mirrors start with the entryway or vestibule. This is the perfect spot for a mirror like this one.
Right away you set the style and tone of your home. The first thing you see when you enter your home is a well put together space that says a lot about who you are. Choose a style that goes with the rest of your décor and makes a statement about the inhabitants of this home.
Perhaps you are more conventional. These mirrors with their simple rectangular or round shapes are the choice for you.
Decorating a vacation cabin or a beach house? Try these fabulous nature inspired mirrors from Treasurecombers.net. I love the birch bark edging on this one. I can see this hanging over the stone fireplace or in the wood paneled bath.
Shells are so glamorous. Nature’s outdoor décor, if you will. This is a great mirror for a bathroom, or a nautical inspired themed bedroom or living room.
Some great decorator’s tips include using a mirror for a dark room to bring in more light and visually double the space. Always be sure to check the reflection of the mirror too. You want to reflect a pleasant view into the room. Check the view in the mirror from different angles to make sure you have the best placement.
Another great decorating tip is to place a mirror above a sideboard or console in a dining room. Placing some candles or candelabra in front of the mirror will create an atmosphere of warmth and a cozy ambiance for dining and conversation. (Treasurecombers.net has some amazing candle holders!)

Buying a mirror is a great investment. You can move them around to create different effects or group a few mirrors together for a dramatic flair. A mirror can serve as the focal point of a room. Especially if it is an unusual or distinct design.
Of course, the mirror is the supreme ally of all my Feng Shui decorator friends. Use a well positioned mirror to deflect negative “Sha” energy from your home or to create the flow of “Chi” (Life force energy) throughout your house.
