Using mirrored wardrobe doors across from a dramatic window creates the illusion of two walls of windows.
The use of mirrors in interior design has been vastly popular throughout the centuries. We love mirrors in home decor because they add height, dimension, light, and even in many cases—the illusion of more space. When used properly in design, they can look modern and edgy or classic and elegant. Conversely, if the application of mirrors in residential projects is not carefully considered, it can begin to look a bit commercial, cold or hard. If your home is space or light challenged, scroll through for a collection of smoke and mirror solutions that are sure to inspire.
