No Lie: This One Décor Accent Will Make Your Space Feel Twice as Big

Living room with a large floor mirror


Small spaces can be a challenge to decorate. They're even trickier when there is little natural light and low ceilings or few architectural details (read: most modern apartments). Spaces that feel small and dark are common in our modern lives, but there is one easy trick to instantly make them feel larger and brighter: large floor mirrors. 

Mirrors of all sizes and shapes make a space look larger, but none are more effective in visually doubling the size of a space as large floor mirrors. If strategically placed—ideally opposite a window and reflecting something pleasant to look at, like a pretty vignette or some greenery—they will create the illusion of space and reflect much-needed natural light to improve the look and feel of the room.

Don't feel stuck in your tiny space any longer—we handpicked the best large floor mirrors to give you a taste of larger-than-life living.
