Make a small cloakroom feel biggerPlain mirrored glass would have the same space-boosting effect in this standalone loo, but what’s nice here is the tarnished glass also lends character to this small, functional space. If you want your foxed mirror to be a standout feature, go ultra-modern all around it. If you want it to blend in a little, consider including roughed-up surfaces nearby, such as raw wood or distressed paintwork on picture frames or a vanity unit. Here, the owners have opted to echo the mirror’s random patterns with marble floor tiles, whose veining and palette, as we already know, provide a visual partner to the mottled glass.

Powder-room panacheIn the bathroom and powder room, you’ll want real mirrors for the actual jobs of hair, make-up or shaving. But around that, have some fun with a wall of light-reflecting tiles. Make sure there’s enough distressing or distortion so you don’t feel weird using the loo itself, but there’s still impact and light.

Wonder wallFor a cool, contemporary look, try geometric-shaped tiles (think hexagons, triangles or diamond-shaped designs). Meanwhile, mirrored subway tiles are a great option for industrial-style schemes. Alternatively, if your interior is traditional in style, take a leaf out of this powder room’s book and line your bathroom wall with oversized antiqued-mirror tiles. The reflective statement surface will bounce light around the room and create the illusion of spaciousness, while the distinctive mottled finish will lend interest and old-world charm to the space (while still providing a clear view for primping and preening).5 ways with mirrored walls

11. Enlarge even the smallest roomPrevent a petite powder room from feeling too pint-sized by installing mirrors on one wall. The antiqued glass used here turns the mirrors into a decorative feature rather than a purely practical one, but they still perform the same proportion-boosting service as a standard mirror.Add big style to itty bitty bathroomsTELL US Have you used mirrors to increase the sense of space in your home?

Powder rooms often have limited space. Instead of finding the perfect mirror, try lining the entire wall behind the sink with one instead. The mirror will also serve double duty as an easy-to-clean backsplash. This look works well in both modern and traditional powder rooms.
