Make Your Living Room Look Larger with Mirrors

A well-placed mirror has the power to give the illusion of a much larger room. With the ability to create depth that otherwise wouldn’t be there, mirrors are for more than just checking yourself out. If you’ve got a room in your home that feels a little too small, a mirror can help expand the room and make you feel more comfortable. Check out these living room mirror ideas to help your room feel expansive and relaxed.

1. Layer It with a Console Table

If you have room for a console, or a table taller than a coffee table, you’ve got room for a large mirror. A large mirror is great because it really opens up a room. Depending on the size of your living room, you might not have room for a large mirror width-wise, but height-wise you may be able to get away with one. Place the console table in front of it and decorate it with small or short decorations so that the mirror is still functional.

2. Tuck It Behind a Sofa

Large MirrorOne of the best living room mirror ideas is to tuck your mirror behind your sofa. This is a great options if you don’t have room for a large mirror to be layered with a console table, or don’t want a console table. Pull your sofa out just enough from the wall in order to slide the large mirror in between the wall and the sofa. With this trick, you can get away with a larger mirror.

3. Cluster Small Mirrors Together

Large mirrors, though they have a lot to offer, also take up a lot of space and can be very heavy, not to mention costly. If that doesn’t appeal to you, don’t worry. All hope is not lost! Clustering several small mirrors together, such as above an alcove or fireplace, can still create the aesthetic that a large mirror would accomplish. Use the biggest mirror you’re willing to deal with for the centerpiece (which doesn’t have to be in the actual center of the cluster), and cluster several smaller mirrors together for a fresh visual look.

4. Try a Round Mirror

Round MirrorRound mirrors are one of the those living room mirror ideas that make a powerful statement, because they’re very common and they make great focal points. They’re also great for living rooms where you don’t have a ton of wall or floor space.

These living room mirror ideas are going to give your space that ultimate wow factor.
