Tabletop mirrors are added for its practical purposes -- like for example, when we put on makeup and other accessories. With just a couple of accessories, you can create a charming vignette.

"Framed mirrors are great accessories on countertops. It may be on consoles, dressers, or built-in shelves. Use a mirror with a big frame as a backdrop for small accessories. Place small-framed mirrors in between other accessories to form a grouping," says interior designer John Vigilia.

How to make it work:

1. Make sure you have a sturdy table.

Large-framed mirrors must sit on top of surfaces that are sturdy enough to hold the weight. For additional precaution, you can secure the mirror with a reusable clay adhesive or Blu-Tack.

2. Keep it simple.

When creating a tableau with a mirror, keep it classy and simple. Keep in mind that a cluttered arrangement will look doubly cluttered with a mirror in the background.

3. Choose the perfect location.

Use a decorative mirror to place around the house where you think sunlight is lacking. The reflective surfaces will bring natural light in.
