And here I am listing out various such wonderful ideas, that you could try out right away to transform your home in minutes.
Mirrors For The Long Narrow Foyer
If your homes entrance door open to a small foyer area, instead of the living rooms, then this would be first place where you could introduce the mirrors!

You could further adorn the mirror by the addition of a table lamp or a planter to create a warm and inviting entryway.

Mirror On The Ceiling
Mirrors can look good on the ceiling as well! Especially in the living rooms, dining area and in the passages of your house floor plan. But make sure to team it well with elegant light fixtures, wall to ceiling panels and so on as the mere installation of glass as the part of ceiling design would end up looking cold.
