When it comes to home design, there are two things that always seem to be true. A mirror will undoubtedly make a room feel larger, and a sunburst mirror will likely make that same room feel complete. For the last few years, sunburst mirrors have become a décor staple—especially above a fireplace. But before you think Been there, done that consider this: Sunburst mirrors have proven to be so versatile that you could label them as timeless.
We found 15 options to prove our point, from simple to intricate and rattan to silver, so that you can try out this enduring trend in any room of your choice. Either way, it'll make the space feel bigger, brighter, and perfectly accessorized.
