The right mirror in a room can give a space a whole new life and can perform many functions. Use mirrors to define and accentuate what is already in your space, or place it where it reflects a favourite view or a treasured object. You can also use a mirror to open up a room and adding some light.

Remember when selecting a mirror, the most important thing you should look for are shape, size and style.
