Mirrors the same width of the furniture make the piece look purposeful and prominent rather than shoved in. Entry consoles are perfect places since in small homes they are usually tucked in wherever they’ll fit. A large mirror in the landing strip area will also allow you the easy luxury of one last “once over” before you dash out the door. For safety, attach the mirror to the wall with brackets even if you are resting the mirror on the floor.

2- Place a mirror behind a light source.
