Homeowners often opt for an accent wall when redecorating a room to breathe new life into a tired old space. However, instead of using paint or wallpaper, one could simply mount an antique mirror on the wall to achieve a similar impact in the space for a fraction of the time and effort.

During redecoration, choose colours that match existing shades and create a pleasant contrast with the other walls. An antique mirror on the wall is perfect for a room with minimalist decor, little furniture and few decorations. However, rooms with a complicated design, a lot of furniture and printed upholstery would look impressive with a mirror of simple design and colour.

According to designer Andreea Avram Rusu, there are never rules when it comes to decorating with mirrors. Comparing mirrors to decorative windows that can be moved around and placed flexibly, she explained that they brought light and depth into rooms.

Pro Tip: Put a large mirror between the bedroom doors to make the landing feel like an entrance to another space rather than a dead end.
