The size of the mirror
"Large mirror" is a relative term that can only be treated in relation to other objects and the entire room. A mirror can appear oversized because it appears as a huge and strategic element in the interior. You can also represent it as the largest decorative element in the room. In relation to other accessories such as lights and vases, this appears larger. At this point you also have to ask yourself what exactly you want to achieve with this object.

A large mirror can occupy an entire wall in the room. This is often done in bathrooms, but some living rooms are also designed with a mirror wall. This is a very successful idea, especially in small rooms. In apartments with an open floor plan, you can use a mirror to highlight a certain area. In the hallway and other rooms, you can expand one or the other dimension.

Large mirror for dining room and kitchen
Large kitchens are often positioned in kitchens and dining rooms. It makes sense here that beautiful objects are reflected in the room so that they can be seen from anywhere. Just like in the living room, safe positioning is very important due to the constant movement! Accidents should thus be avoided.

Large mirror in the bedroom
Some opt for a large mirror on the headboard or on the wall above or opposite the bed. According to Feng Shui, this decorative object must never be seen by the sleeping people. This would scatter the energy in the room and have a negative impact on the quality of sleep. You should be able to easily look around in the mirror after getting ready for the day. It will also be helpful if it is positioned opposite the window so that the light is spread out.

In small rooms such as hallways, bathrooms and basements, the function of the mirror is clearly to enlarge and illuminate this room.
