They can be used to provide the illusion of a larger space and can even be used to lighten up a room. Most mirrors in standard shapes are quite reasonably priced and hardly require any maintenance after installation. If you plan to install mirrors in your home or workplace, it is not just a matter of hanging them on the first empty wall you see. Instead, it requires a bit of planning and proper execution to get the desired effect. You will need to first measure the room, hallway, or narrow corridor where you plan to do the installation. The colors used in the room or the corridor walls are also important. If your room is small and you want to visually enlarge it, you could paint one wall in a dark color and hang a mirror on that wall. It will provide the illusion of depth and make the room look larger.

 

If you are using mirrors in the hallway or corridor, it is important to remember mirrors also reflect. It is necessary to place them opposite soft lights or other artifacts such as paintings or any other art pieces you might have displayed on the other side. Before installation, make sure the mirror will not reflect any open doors to inner rooms since visitors will be able to see inside the room. If you have such a problem during installation, try to change the angle of the mirror or try to move the mirror to a different position.

 

If you want to give an impression of a wide corridor in spite of having a
narrow one, try alternating between long, vertical mirrors and paneling. You could also hang small paintings on the paneling, making the corridor seem larger and wider than it actually is. This same principle can also be applied in your workplace. If you want to install mirrors in a restaurant, then etched mirrors placed upwards from waist-level will give it an elegant look. You can either fit your mirrors directly or even use frames that match your walls or your room decor.

Mirrors can also help to spread the light in your home or workplace and provide a well-lit atmosphere along with a reduced energy bill. Make sure extremely bright lights are not exposed to the naked eye since the mirror will magnify the glare. Use suitable shields that mask the brightness and convert the harsh glare into a soft glow. Also, ensure your mirrors are not placed directly in front of any window with a southward or westward angle since it might result in some undesired glare during particular hours of the day.

Mirrors can easily be used to create an optical illusion of a larger and well-lit room or workplace. A well-placed mirror can work wonders in converting any small or dimly lit place into a virtual palace.
