Double the View

How do you increase the height of a room with minimal cost or effort?  The judicious (emphasis on "judicious") use of mirror can expand the look and feel of a room.

In this dining room, the ceiling height is 8' and the floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto a beautiful reverse ravine. The placement of mirrors on a portion of the ceiling around the chandelier creates a two-storey effect that brings the outdoors inside in a dramatic way.  The homeowners and their guests are treated to an continuous, ever-changing show by Mother Nature!
