If you want to brighten up your space, make it look bigger, or reflect more light (and more personality!), then mirrors can be your best friend. There are no rules to follow when decorating with mirrors, according to designer Andreea Avram Rusu. “Mirrors bring light and depth into rooms—they’re like decorative windows you can move around and place as you like.”

Find out how you can mix and match mirrors to reflect the beauty of your own space:


1. Mount mirrors in your living room.
Instead of mounting a painting on your wall, why not try hanging mirrors instead? You can use mirrors of the same size for a more streamlined look or be more playful by using different sizes and shapes.

For a similar look, purchase the Olympre Bronze Mirror, $750, Originals Singapore.


2. Brighten up your kitchen with a mirrored backsplash.
A mirrored backsplash in your kitchen can create visual wonders—from making it look more contemporary to giving it a classier feel. There are so many styles to choose from, all of which will add character to your space.


3. Accentuate your dining area with a floor mirror.
Who said mirrors cannot be placed in your dining area? Illuminate the room with a floor mirror and you will surely achieve an elegant and sleek dining space. Aside from making the room look more artsy, it’s also good for those lacking natural light. Give it a bit more spice by decorating your dining table with vases or candles which you can light at dinner time.

4. Use mirrors as versatile design pieces.
Mirrors aren’t just used for vanity, they can also serve as decorative pieces in your home. You can use mirrors as centrepiece plate on your coffee table or position it behind random items such as vases, candles, or candy holders to reflect a bit of light. If you are a fan of DIY, then try creating your own wall art out of broken mirrors!

Shop: Wood Box Mirror, $80, or round mirror tray, $170, Bungalow 55.


5. Dress up your bathroom with hanging mirrors.
When it comes to bathrooms, mirrors are a must but you don’t have to settle with the usual bathroom mirror designs. You can think out of the box to reflect your personality even in one of the most private parts of your home.

Choose a variety of mirrors with more interesting shapes and more intricate designs, enough to make these mirrors your bathroom’s very own statement pieces. Or you can also look for a hanging mirror instead of the mounted one, for a more stylish touch.

Recreate this look with the Copper Mirror, $124, Styledeco or the round mirror, price upon request, Danish Design.
