      Add some reflectionAn overmantel mirror is a classic choice, but if you want something different, go for a statement frame or a collection of smaller decorative mirrors. Here, a stunning star-shaped design is hung against mirrored panels. It creates a striking focal point and gives the illusion of height and space.

      Sprinkle with glitzFor a blast of unhindered opulence, why not splash out on a fabulous mirrored table so you can dine like a movie star every day? The Art Deco style looks sensational with crystal glasses, white china and linen napkins – and the pièce de résistance has to be the crushed velvet dining chairs for all-in-one comfort and luxury.

      Max out on mirrorsA mirrored wall can be a great way of achieving a dramatic effect – as well as giving the illusion of more space. Cover an entire wall, or just the chimney breast or alcoves, for a truly opulent feel. The addition of a star-shaped mirror on this chimney breast really adds a pow to this room. Tie the look together with glass, silver and other reflective accessories. It’s the attention to detail that really makes this room work so well, as the vertical lines on the mirrored table edge echo the lines of the dramatic chandelier above.

      Max out the mirrorsThey say you should always eat in front of a mirror to make you eat less and more slowly! But in this case the mirror is doing a more decorative job. This dining space feels large, light and a little glitzy thanks to the huge panel and fun star. Any more mirror and it could tip into overkill, but this achieves the perfect level of opulence before it turns tasteless.TELL US…Are you a fan of more formal, elegant dining?

      Make your table look prettyThis sounds obvious, but it’s worth putting some time and effort into how you want your table to look. If it’s a long table, then go for a couple of raised centrepieces so your guests’ view isn’t obscured. And napkins; whatever you do, don’t forget the napkins.

      It would be cool to antique mirror in panels like this on one of my walls in the 1/2 bath. Hmmm
