Add mirrors

Setting a mirror inside of a hallway or a room can open up an area drastically. The mirrors will reflect light from windows or incoming light into the room.

In a darker room, add a large mirror to help brighten up space. Not only will it bring the light in, but it will make the room appear larger than it is!
