Looking for creative ways to decorate with mirrors in your living room? Then You’ll love these 17 mirror wall & floor decor ideas!
Decorating with mirrors in your living room is one of the oldest interior design tricks in the book. It makes a room look larger, and when picking the right mirror design it will elevate your living room interior.
There are many different ways to decorate with mirrors. For example, large floor mirrors leaning against the wall or horizontal mirrors over the couch.
Where should a mirror be placed in a living room?
Where a mirror should be placed in your living room depends on the intention. Do you want to use mirrors to make a small space appear larger? Is it for decor only? Or maybe both.
A few good spots for floor mirrors are beside your TV console, in your seating area next to the couch, or in the spot that connects your living room to your entry or kitchen.
Particularly in narrow living rooms, a large floor mirror can really help open the space and make your apartment look bigger.
Your mirror will reflect other areas of your living room. So make sure that the mirror faces something you want to have amplified! This is an important principle in feng shui. Let the mirror face a window, plants, or something beautiful like an artwork on the wall.
