They are a great way to cleverly camouflage doors of storage cabinets, too.
Interior designer Vanessa Ong, of April Atelier, says: “The key to positioning mirrors and reflective surfaces is to ensure they are not positioned opposite each other to avoid an infinity mirror effect. Consider surfaces such as tinted, antique mirrors for a vintage look, or satin-finished glass for a textured reflective facade.”

Reflective surfaces on furnishings also help brighten interiors when light reflects off them.
