Design Details: Mirrors

Mirrors are for more than checking your hair - they are the perfect way to visually expand a small space, and if they catch the light in their reflection, they can brighten an entire room. Available in many shapes, sizes, finishes and price points, there's a mirror to suit your home. One thing to keep in mind when positioning a mirror: be mindful of what the mirror reflects.
