Helpful hints when using mirrors to enlarge and brighten a space.
Don't hang a mirror too high in a living/family/dining room. When a mirror is hung to high, such as over a fireplace mantle, the mirror will reflect the ceiling. After all, who wants to look a ceiling fan or white drywall. Mirrors in these areas are best hung at eye level. Think about what the mirror will be reflecting as much as the placement on the wall. Try hanging a mirror across from your favorite piece of art instead.
