Mirrors or No Mirrors?

Can't decide whether to take these down or leave them.

If the mirror doesn't feel right to you, or makes you uneasy (always seeing the whole room reflected back) you should take it down. In general, wall mirrors like that are outdated and reflecting such a large area really is unecessary for bringing in light.

I vote for taking down. A nice picture or a smaller mirror would probably make your room feel bigger and more pull together instead of just reflecting back whats in the room.

Take them down and you can replace with decorative mirrors or a gallery wall but I think the solid mirror wall looks dated.

The mirrored wall is not doing anything good for the room, so I'd call the mirror company to come remove it. Then you could paint the wall a nice interesting color, or paper it with grasscloth. Find some art you like or art plus sconces.

Another option after you remove the mirror would be to install wall to wall bookshelves, making the dining room work overtime as a library. This is a solution that lots of people are finding useful.

I agree with standinginline, it does make the room look dated. I vote to remove.

It depends on what you like, but I would take them down, personally.

I love mirrors, however, this mirror look is dated. I would put in a chair rail and some boxes and choose a nice paint color for the top, then add some interesting art work.

Take the mirror down. It kinda dates the room with a seventy's feel.
