You can brighten up your home with the help of sunlight and good lighting fixtures. But the key to getting the right amount of light and depth in a room is to have decorative mirrors to reflect and bounce the light.
Now that we’re getting more sunshine than rain this past week, we picked out some mirrors that you can place in specific spaces to catch some light.
This standing small Convex Mirror from Ito Kish Home is perfect on top of bedroom dressers. Its convex shape will catch sunlight just enough to illuminate some parts of the room.
Ito Kish Home. Available at 233 Nicanor Garcia, Bel-Air II, Makati City. For more information, visit their website.
If you’re looking for uniquely shaped piece to fill a wall space in your hallway, you can get West Elm’s Faceted Mirror (P7,029). This mirror has a six facets―creating a star shape in the middle―which helps give the illusion of bigger space in cramped areas.

Another mirror you can use to enhance an plain wall is Crate & Barrel’s Dahlia Round Wall Mirror (P7,972). Aside from reflecting small amounts of light, its prominent iron fan detail can also create shadows on your wall to give it more dimension.
