Use mirrors strategically
Adding items like large mirrors, or classy artwork, to a room are quick and easy ways to add a touch of chic. Mirrors are an especially good feature. They reflect the light, which has the effect of making a room look larger. Mirrors also create the opportunity for you to highlight each room’s best features. If you are clever, you can hang them in a way that picks out these features and reflects them, which means they are far more likely to be noticed.
Good lighting is essential
