Mirrors and Light Make a Small Room Feel Larger
If you have a room in your home that you feel is just too small and you don’t have it in your budget to break through a wall and increase its size there is an alternative. Using a well-placed mirror with some creative lighting has been known to make a room feel bigger. Now feeling bigger won’t make it any less limited but it sure can help increase your sense of satisfaction in your home.
Mirrors not only reflect light giving a room a less cramped feel, they can be angled to create a look of more depth in the room. And that’s not all. Mirrored cabinet and closet doors can also help to create that feeling of a more open space. The two rooms most helped by this effect can be the bedroom and the bathroom. Great because you need the functionality of a mirror in those rooms the anyway.
Other rooms like the family room will have an advantage in using the mirrors in combination with a window. By reflecting the outside view from that window a mirror on the wall next to it creates that feeling of a more open space. The mirror will be reflecting a lot of natural light which always makes a room seem bigger as well. A glass table top can be another aide in making a room look less cramped than a wooden one can. These are just some of the ideas that can be used by the DIY decorator to “enlarge” a room.
