There is one décor trick that never fails to make a room feel bigger. No matter how small or dark, it can 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 30 rooms is the grandest of them all? Keep scrolling to find out.
