Today's Tip: Use mirrors
One easy way to make a small space appear bigger and therefore probably more calming, is by using mirrors. I haven't personally explored this much, nor do I claim to have a bone of designer in my body, but I do have a cluster of eight circular mirrors I put up in our entryway that I think makes the small space a little less claustrophobic. Maybe even a little cute.
If you're having a hard time with a particularly small and frequently-used area in your house, consider putting up a mirror or two to make it seem more spacious.
Here is are some well-designed small spaces with mirrors from Apartment Therapy, one of my favorite home and house sites: Mirrors!
That's about it it for today. Happy Monday!
Here's our little entryway.
