Mirrors add light, shine and sparkle--not to mention the illusion of space--to any room. Mirror tile designs in particular make a big impact, yet are easy to install. The lightweight, thin glass comes in 1-foot squares, and affixes simply to the wall with double-sided tape. Even a novice do-it-yourselfer can complete a dramatic mirror tile project.
Add artistic flair to your living room by incorporating mirror tiles. Stick the tiles on the wall in a certain design or create geometric shapes. The result is inexpensive wall art with a contemporary feel. Or, create an accent wall by applying mirror tile to the entire expanse of the wall. It will add drama to a room and double the visual square footage of the space.
Update a cramped bathroom with a tall mirror bathtub surround. By using art mirror tiles instead of ceramic tiles, you'll transform your bathroom into an art deco show piece. The glamorous effect makes the room look larger and stylized.
Mirror tile provides hope for a small dark kitchen. Create a decorative back splash with mirror tile. The reflective quality adds brightness and depth to the space. This is especially important under the counter space where the tile is installed. The modern element is also easy to clean and inexpensive compared to other popular back splash tile.
A simple way to bring mirror tile into your design is to create a dining room table centerpiece. Place several together in the center of the table to serve as a spotlight for a vase of flowers. Or consider laying out the pieces as a table runner. Add candles the length of the table for a beautiful contemporary display. Create a quick and easy table decoration from mirror tile to add pizazz to your next dinner party.
