Mirrors help bring in good Feng Shui because they help increase natural lighting and they can also make the space look and feel bigger. Place the mirror in front of something that you would like to reflect, like a window with views of a garden or a beautiful piece of art.

Especially, in a small home or small apartment, each room tends to be a multipurpose room. Your bedroom can also be your office or your kitchen is also your dining area.
