  • Mirrors can work wonders in making a space (especially compact ones) look bigger and brighter. In Feng Shui, this decorative item is also used to attract positive energy into a home.

    However, as Julie Khuu, an interior designer who actively practices the ancient Chinese art, notes, "As much as mirrors can provide a really great source of positive Feng Shui energy, when improperly used, mirrors can have negative consequences that affect your health, your sleep, your body image, and your mindset."
