15 hallway mirrors to create the illusion of space

House Beautiful UK Logo By Lisa Joyner of House Beautiful UK | Slide 1 of 16: Hallway mirrors are a great way to create the illusion of a bigger, brighter space. Whether you opt for classic circular styles or more rectangular ones, there are plenty to help you make the best first impression at home.

A grand horizontal or vertical mirror will invite our eyes to perceive the bouncing reflections as increased volume, making the room look bigger. Well-placed table lamps, floor lamps and wall lights are also helpful tools for adding atmosphere and dimension into the space, so when coordinated with the right mirror; the two go hand in hand with giving the impression of a larger space.'If you are blessed with windows in your hallway, why not consider placing your mirror opposite one. 'Placing your mirror on a wall adjacent to a window or glass door will trick the eye into thinking your space is larger and will also bounce light into all corners of your space,' adds Yvonne Keal, Senior Product Manager at Hillarys.
