Grand in size and scale, floor to ceiling mirrors are a real wow factor in any room of your home. These showstopping pieces harness the power of light and space to instantly transform a room with ease and elegance.
In rooms that lack architectural interest, a stately floor mirror adds instant character. A large floor mirror will fill your wall space, creating the illusion and grandeur of an opening or entryway into another room. This effect is especially useful in rooms that lack a window, such as a dining nook or entry way. You can double the dramatic effect by placing two floor mirrors side by side.
Floor to ceiling mirrors are also the perfect companion pieces to a bookcase or other large shelf unit. The mirror will break up the pattern-rich decor of most bookcases, for example, giving the eye a place to rest.
You can lean a floor length mirror casually against a bare wall, immediately adding interest, drama and functionality. Another classic decorator trick is to lean a floor mirror behind a piece of furniture. This will give the room an interesting, layered look while amplifying the light from a nearby window or floor lamp. As an added benefit, you do not have to permanently affix the mirror to the wall, which is an ideal solution for renters.
