34 incredible ways you can decorate your house with mirrors – for those on a budget and for the fancy (or both!)

Mirrors, mirrors. Easy to overlook until you get a unit of your own – yes, we’re talking about you new home-owners out there.

Mirrors are more than just for looking at your own reflection for a quick double-check before you go to work – they also help in decorating the house, be it brightening, expanding its appearance, to add character to how it looks. Think of it like the budget sister of paintings, but with much more versatility.

Have we sold you on the mirrors yet? Because if we haven’t, here are 34 ideas to inspire you on how to use mirrors to decorate your new unit (or to spruce up your old unit)!

For those on a budget – we suggest stick-on mirrors, which are mirrors you can, well, stick onto your walls and often go for less than S$5 online. Also, they’re customisable so you could really go to town with creating whatever vision you have in your head – this goes for those not looking for budget mirrors either!
