    Hanging mirrors on your closet doors is a wonderful solution for small bedrooms, because not only does it gives the illusion of a larger space, it also bounces light throughout the room. The stylish doors shown here were custom made by Modern Craft Construction, LLC, who glued beveled mirror inserts to flat panel Masonite doors, but you could easily DIY a similar look. The old-fashioned crystal doorknobs give the room an extra touch of vintage flair.
