How to: Create the Illusion of a Large Master Bedroom with Just a Mirror

Mirrors enhance your room’s overall mood by adding vibrant light, a decorative focal piece and an appropriately placed mirror can even make your room look larger. If your master bedroom is a smaller space, use a large mirror to create the illusion of more space. When placing a mirror in a room, try to hang it so that it’s reflecting light – amplifying the mirror’s ability brighten your room and create the feel of a larger area.

We are often asked; can a mirror become a room’s focal point? The short answer – absolutely! Whether it is a large and ornate mirror hung on the wall or an oversized mirrored leaned up against your room’s wall, it almost immediately becomes the first piece your eye will look at when you enter the area. One décor issue to avoid is too many mirrors -- One large mirror or a collage of small mirrors centrally clustered will add a great statement to your space, but adding a mirror on every wall will create an unnecessary cluttered appearance in your bedroom.

A mirror like this Uttermost Akisha Starburst mirror can be a great focal point as its unique design will capture your attention almost immediately upon entry to your room. Hang this piece over the bed to create a dramatic effect in your master bedroom.
