Mirrors are known to have the ability to reflect and amplify light. Placing a large full length mirror in the living room, dining area or bedroom would deceive the eye and mind into thinking that the area is much more spacious than it looks. Hence, mirrors help to open up an enclosed space and create an illusion of having a bigger surface area.
