Definitely love mirrors that add beauty especially because it increases the sense of space in a room.

great article. ..using mirrors in your home is not 70's or 80's at all. mirrors are always in style. not that trends matter very much to me. I use mirrors regardless of what other people think of them. ..i like putting unframed mirrors in expected spaces like a bit of wall space right before you turn a corner into a different room especially if there's a step up or down from one room to the next. it can make the layout look interesting or unique due to all the different reflections. I just did it in my first home right after renovating and if done correctly (meaning it doesn't necessarily have to be done in any or every way mentioned in this article) it really does make a space look interesting, brighter and bigger.
PS. if you can't help but to stare at yourself that's your fault, not the mirrors. that would be like blaming a fork because you eat too much. "well the fork was there!!! what was I supposed to do!!!??" ...lol... REALLY??

Put frameless mirrors at right angles in a corner, say over a vanity unit, and you get a right-way-round image of yourself in the corner. Useful if you want to see yourself as others see you.

You have to be careful to get the angle exactly 90° if you try this.
