There is one décor trick that never feels to make a room feel bigger. No matter how small or dark, it will transform any room into an airy and bright space: mirrors. Specifically, large round mirrors. Yes, we’re having a round-mirror moment, and as far as we’re concerned, bigger is better.
Large round mirrors can be a statement piece in every room in the house, adding a stunning chic factor to entryways, living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms alike. The circular shape takes the mirror from functional to decorative, with a host of frame options, from sleek and chic to vintage and brassy. Mirror, mirror on the wall, which of these 11 rooms is the grandest of them all?

A big mirror completes a bold bathroom design, building on the high contrast between black and white. A sharp vanity, vertical sconces, and geometric terrariums are rounded out by the perfect circle on the wall.
In this living room, a large round mirror proves that size does indeed matter: The large scale of the mirror means it instantly doubles the size of the space with its reflection. The round shape holds its own among diverse, well-balanced design elements throughout the room, including a sculptural chair, a minimal marble table, and a hot pink moment.
A round mirror is the perfect starting point to get your bedroom in shape. We love the way the colorful art is reflected in the mirror in this Manhattan bedroom by ASH NYC, creating a sharp, modern feel. Use a large round mirror just a few inches above a dresser for maximum impact.
