Why do we need a shiny surface for reflection?

The extent of reflection depends upon the shine and smoothness of the surface. More is the shine and smoothness of the surface, more will be the reflection. That is why, mirrors reflect most of the light falling on it. Hence, for reflection, shiny surfaces are required.
