Do You See What I See?

There is one decor detail in nurseries and toddler rooms that’s often overlooked…a mirror! I think they’re the perfect accent to kids’ spaces—here are a few reasons why I think mirrors in the nursery are a must.

Create the illusion of space. In a small space, mirrors can help to create the illusion of a larger space based on their placement in the room.

Lighten up. If the room lacks light and brightness, a mirror placed behind a lamp will reflect the light and brighten up a space.

Add a pop of color. Afraid to paint or can’t because you are renting? Choosing a mirror with a fun painted frame adds a pop of color to the room. Feeling crafty? DIY your own! Garage sale or thrift store finds are fun to dress up with the help of a little paint.

Sweet reflections. There is nothing better than catching a glimpse of a sweet baby smile in the mirror.

Shape and texture and interest, oh my! Use a mirror with a fun shaped frame or texture to help bring interest into the space. A jute-wrapped frame adds great visual texture to the room. Or you could include a few small mirrors in a gallery wall to add a touch of sparkle!

You are so right! Mirrors are overlooked in a nursery. As adults we have them in our bedrooms be it a full length or a wall mirror. Placed on a wall where you can see a glimpse of your baby without disturbing them is a great way to check on them. I love the flower and butterfly mirrors you have pictured here!
