Some mirrors are more decorative than functional. These mirrors typically have more detailed framing or a very specific type of style, such as contemporary or antique. If you have a rustic-style home, you may want to install a wall mirror with a simple wood framing or if you are looking to emphasize three dimensional objects such as a vase or work of art, place the objects in front of a large wall mirror or transitional mirror like a cheval mirror.
To use your mirrors to add the illusion of more space or light, try positioning them so that they capture as much of the room as possible so they can reflect more space and light. A brighter room always feels more open and fresh. Small or narrow spaces will benefit most from this technique.
