Mirrors are a highly underestimated accessory when it comes to decorating the home, especially when trying to create an inviting hallway. As well as being a trusty practical interior tool, generally used to check your appearance, mirrors are a great way to breathe new life into an enclosed space, enriching the aesthetic and adding depth and light.

One of the most well-known techniques to create the illusion of space is to strategically place mirrors around the room to reflect and amplify light. Small hallways often lack natural light so placing a mirror opposite a window or glass door is a great way to illuminate tricky shady spaces as well as amplifying the beautiful views from outside.

Consider size, if you want to make a bold statement. Use oversized decorative designs, or for subtle schemes use a small focal mirror in a narrow entranceway to bounce light and create a warm ambience.

There are numerous stylish options out there, we’ve rounded up our top 6 to liven up your hallway.
