William Hefner Architecture Interiors & Landscape traditional dining room

Mirrors have long been used to make rooms feel larger, but in most cases I just associate full wall mirrors with beach condos and HGTV real estate programs.  Living in a home with smaller rooms, I can certainly appreciate the instant airiness that comes with a strategically placed mirror.

Instead of your mind racing directly to visions of a paneled floor-to-ceiling mirrored monstrosity circa 1979, take a hint from some of these design solutions using HUGE mirrors! Isn’t the dining room above AMAZING?! The antiquing on the mirror and the chevron floor just do it for me…

Beautiful combination of modern and vintage.  The soaring windows don’t hurt either!

The floor mirror above is done in a more rustic farmhouse setting.  Mirrors are great in dining rooms for playing with the light, creating a perfect dinner ambiance

I love how clean and angular this mirror appears with the skinnier frame and square shape.

 

I am usually not the biggest fan of mirrors above headboards.  But this one gives a perfect art decoish feeling with the soft orange pops and sleek side table and lamp.
