Mirrors are often used to increase the sense of space and light in a room, but what other ways can we introduce reflective surfaces within a decor scheme? This modern apartment interior in Kyiv, Ukraine, designed by One M2, has a few different ideas on the subject. Smoked glass tops, doors and closets, glossy kitchen cabinets and chrome fixtures have all been implemented to full space expanding effect in the 190 square metre home. The shiny surfaces thread more light through the living space by carrying natural light from windows, and bouncing the artificial glow from track lighting systems and recessed spots. LED strips outline shelves and special features, whilst pendant lights bring extra style.
