Consider adding a mirror or two as a way to add light and make your modern entry hall seem larger and more open. Placed over either a table or a bench, a mirror reflects light from lamps, a ceiling light or a chandelier, if you’re fortunate enough to have a foyer with a soaring ceiling. A large mirror also reflects the room in front of it and giving the illusion of more space.
