    Use Multiple Vertical Mirrors

    Multiple Vertical Mirrors

    Chelius House of Design

    This bathroom features vertical mirrors—rather than horizontal—to make the space feel taller. The fact that there are multiple mirrors, two at the vanity and one full-length mirror on the adjacent wall, adds to the open, airy space of this boho chic bathroom. Because the mirrors are the same shape, the space feels congruent and has a cohesive flow.
