Mirrors are one of the best tricks for making a space feel larger, brighter or simply more elegant. There are several areas in the home in which they can be used effectively, but today I’m going to focus on mirrors behind the bed.
A mirror behind the bed is an easy way to make the room feel larger and to create a feeling of grandeur. The reflective surface offers an element of glamour, too, which is perfect for a bedroom. How much of a statement the mirror makes depends on how you use it. You can cover the whole wall behind the bed, use a framed mirror that only runs the length of the bed or even hang one above it.
Mirrors behind the bed can even take the place of a headboard.
Here are 10 beautiful bedrooms with mirrors behind the bed that show how versatile and effective this look can be:
