Mirrored Wall - To add sparkle light and beautiful reflections to the room you can mirror the wall behind the mantelpiece. Hang one large mirror on the wall directly behind the mantel.

If you’re on a budget check out second hand stores or flea markets for interesting vintage mirrors. Or use mirrored wall tiles to completely cover the wall. Framed mirrors can also be used to decorate the wall behind the mantel. One large framed mirror will add an elegant look to the room.

For added visual interest hang them on the diagonal to form diamond shapes.
