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

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

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.
