As a headboard
Fake a few more square meters in the bedroom by adding an eye-catching headboard. It doesn’t matter what kind you want to use—a big mirror or a bunch of small ones—as long as it is at least a foot taller (starting from the mattress) than your bed to cast back the other half of the room. This trick can also instantly brighten up the room regardless of your existing color scheme.

As a window-shaped wall decor
Mirrors are usually strategically placed in front of big windows to reflect the greenery from outside. If you're home doesn't have this type of window treatment, try to find pieces that come in curved panels and hang them in the part of the home where a window would be. Make sure it plays off where the sun hits to give it a realistic feel.

As an installed wall panelling
If you're not too keen on simple ways of working with mirrors, go big by installing full panels into a narrow hallway or a cramped bathroom. To keep it from being dizzying, they key is to use multiple small mirrors the same way you would with ordinary panelling.
