One little (or large for that matter) tip we got from AT today is… “Use a large floor length mirror behind a piece of furniture in tight spaces.”
Mirrors the same width of the furniture make the piece look purposeful and prominent rather than shoved in. Entry consoles are perfect places since in small homes they are usually tucked in wherever they’ll fit. A large mirror in the landing strip area will also allow you the easy luxury of one last “once over” before you dash out the door. For safety, attach the mirror to the wall with brackets even if you are resting the mirror on the floor.
I’d like to believe that our 4 feet by 6 feet floor based mirror is perfect for the job. Placed behind a console (which by the way usually comes in 4 feet width as well), we’d accomplish this great Apartment Therapy tip of highlighting the furniture in front.
And not only that, I’ve seen about 3 to 4 actual installations of this 4 x 6 mirror (real outside dimensions by the way is 140 cm by 200 cm ) and the mirror truly enlarges the space big time, gives the room like another more depth, and the light reflections, it brightens up the room even more.
Grab this biggie mirror, and see for yourself. :)
