Mirrors that Make Your Fireplace Wall Sparkle



The fireplace is usually the focal point in the room so let’s make it great!

Today I’ll show you some ideas using mirrors as the main piece of your fireplace decor so you can add some sparkle that very important space.

The most important thing to notice when using a mirror is what it will reflect. Make sure it reflects something appealing, whether it’s natural light, a great view, a chandelier, artwork on the opposite wall, or another piece of decor on the mantle.


Even though I like all the pieces in this picture, what the mirror reflects is not ideal. In this case, a piece of art may have been a better choice, or placing something else on the mantle and in front of the mirror to be reflected.

You may use more than one mirror for a layered look

Hope your all having a restful week. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the layered mirrors on our mantle when I first did it but I’d say now…


Or layer with family pictures.

I love the layering of the mirror and picture frame in the middle with similar but not exact anchors on the ends
