A fresh twist on a mirror, this is a fun way to add some light. It will be centered in the middle of the window and it will create a really interesting twist in terms of the way it lights up your reflection.

It won’t block light, it’ll reflect it and make it warmer. The key is to get it not too big for the window, and not too small so that it isn’t effective in its reflection.



2. Try It In The Middle of The Room

Using suspension wires, bump it out from the wall and consider using a free standing sink. This adds dimension and makes the mirror seem a lot more fresh and modern, even if it’s simplistic in its overall design.

Suspension is a great option for opening of the space more, too so that it can be airy and light. Try it in a few spots and get the height right!

3. Design A Wrap-Around Style
