8 places in the house where you need to use mirrors and gloss
one Near the window
The easiest way to make a room brighter and visually more spacious is to multiply the sunlight from the window with the help of reflection. To do this, hang a large mirror on the wall where the light falls the longest throughout the day. When doing this, make sure that the cornice of the curtains is long enough so that they can be completely pushed back, freeing the window and letting in maximum light to the mirror.

2 in a bright kitchen
If you have a light, monochrome kitchen, it can look flat and boring without a variety of textures. Add glossy details: hood, lamps, headset fittings, chair legs. In addition to the fact that they themselves look accentuated, they will beautifully reflect the light from the window and lamps.

3 On the sides of the head of the bed
Mirrors help make a small bedroom look bigger. But not everyone is psychologically comfortable seeing their reflection while lying in bed. To avoid discomfort, hang two identical mirrors on the wall behind the headboard. It is better to choose narrow elongated models — at the same time they will visually raise the ceiling.
four Behind the TV in the living room
It is not always clear what to do with the wall behind the TV. Leaving it empty is too boring, hanging decor there is risky, as decorations can distract from what is happening on the screen. A good way out is to make the wall more interesting due to gloss. Decorative plastic panels, paint and even tiles will do. Such a surface stands out, but does not attract too much attention, and the interior looks much more interesting.

5 In the headset and kitchen apron
Gloss looks good in the working area in the kitchen. For example, such doors will make the line of upper cabinets visually lighter compared to the matte lower cabinets. Textured glossy tiles will decorate a kitchen apron, but at the same time they will not get bored after a few months, like a bright color or pattern.
6 At the beginning of the corridor
There must be a large mirror in the hallway. It not only simplifies gatherings and makes it possible to see oneself as a whole, and not in fragments, but also expands the narrow dark space without windows. To achieve maximum effect, hang a mirror at the beginning of a long corridor.

7 In the dining area
Few people think of hanging a mirror next to the dining table. But this is a spectacular technique that perfectly zones the space and attracts attention. Choose a large product in an interesting voluminous frame, and also hang lamps on a long cord above the table — so the light from them will also be reflected in the mirror.
eight On an accent wall
Another good place for glossy panels and mirrors (you can use both at once) is along the wall that you want to make accent. This is not as common as patterned wallpaper or bright color, so it looks more original. In addition, gloss and mirrors will increase the amount of natural light in the room and give a feeling of airiness.
