Whether you’re seeking a large statement piece or a small gallery wall insert, mirrors are a wonderfully versatile tool to brighten and elevate any room in your home. When positioned correctly, mirrors can add the illusion of depth to smaller corners and enhance statement pieces elsewhere in the room. We looked over the top trends and pulled together the best looks to inspire your home.

Large and in charge

Grand and overstated circular mirrors are a must to unfurl smaller rooms and hallways, and add character to living rooms and bedrooms. When used in bathrooms, big round mirrors can do wonders to contrast the hard corners and sharp lines of showers and tiles. Complement with simple Scandi-style furniture and small eye-catching statement pieces such as dark foliage and textured vases to achieve a minimalist yet homely effect.

Bursting out

A timeless trend dating back to the middle ages, sunburst mirrors have continued to enchant home owners and interior decorators to the present day. This versatile mirror style has embarked on a fascinating journey from large and ornate to petite and slender, with minimalist interiors favouring the latter in recent years.  A sunburst mirror acts as a fascinating focal piece for long corridors and over-bed statement pieces - try adding a collection of small gold-framed mirrors to a dark wall for a classic mid-century look.

Seeing double

Why just limit yourself to one mirror when you could have two? Placing two mirrors side by side can help to add symmetry to a bedroom or living space and give impact to an otherwise plain wall. Doubling up your mirrors also works well in rooms which may not be positioned well to receive a lot of natural light.

Both functional and visually arresting, a mirror with a built-in shelf is a signature statement piece for any bathroom or bedroom. Explore circular contemporary styles with thick frames for a distinctive modern look, or dabble with distressed hanging metal borders for a vintage industrial feel. The handy shelves lend themselves to both minimalist and clutter-eccentrics, leaving you to decorate your mirror in your own unique style.

Think Thin

Tighter spots such as hallways and staircases are quite tricky to enlarge without a wealth of natural light. When positioned opposite a window, thin horizontal mirrors act to widen smaller spaces, whilst also adding a welcoming touch to your entrance hallway.
