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?
