A well-placed mirror (or two) can make any room appear larger. But if you want your space to look even bigger…we’ve got a nifty trick.

What you do: Locate a lamp--or any light fixture that’s freestanding or easily mounted. OK, now place it directly in front of a hanging wall mirror. You’re done!

Why it works: The light bounces off the mirror, thereby creating the illusion of even more light in your space. To summarize, light + reflective surfaces = a brighter future for your home.

Pro tip: Put the light in front of the mirror and near a window and you’ve got yourself even more wattage.
