Wall and bathroom mirrors are an important way to lighten and brighten your home while adding functional design elements. Bathroom mirrors are especially important in your daily routine. For tricky spaces, large walls, or custom design challenges, consider installing mirrors made especially for your home.
Go beyond the ordinary mirror with creative shapes that add a special touch and bring light into any room: great rooms, dining rooms, recreational rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, and more. Choose mirrors that are designed, cut, and beveled in custom shapes and sizes. Mirror installation services range from mirror production for multi-family residences and commercial buildings to truly custom mirrors that serve as works of art in your home.
Wall Mirror Installation
If you are having your mirrors custom cut, a mirror contractor will begin by measuring your wall space. During installation, contractors will locate wall studs and mount your mirror safely using your pre-selected frame or floating mount style. Professional installers will ensure that the correct mounting hardware is used in order to safely hang your mirrors. In addition, a professional installer will clean up after mirror installation, leaving one less thing for homeowners to worry about.
Mirrors give any room a larger feel, making them a wise choice for any size space in your home. From door mirrors and bathroom mirrors to framed wall mirrors, there are many options available for every space in your home. If you’re not sure about sizing, style, or placement, a mirror installation expert can provide you with customized suggestions for your home.
Frameless Floating Mirror
For a minimalist look, frameless floating mirrors transform your wall space into a reflective surface. A frameless mirror is a low profile option that is well-suited to bathrooms and walk-in closets, as well as doors and hallways. Frameless mounted mirrors are available in various custom shapes, making them good choices to use as eye-catching statement pieces in your halls or entryways.
Framed mirrors add depth and texture to any home design. Framed mirrors come in a variety of sizes and shapes and can be installed in several ways. Heavy framed mirrors especially require professional installation. If you have an existing frameless mirror or an antique frame, you can have a mirror expert add a frame or mirrored glass to complete your custom piece.
Mirrored Bathroom Medicine Cabinet
Consider adding a mirrored cabinet to make the most use of space in any bathroom. As a useful all-in-one item for your daily routine, a bathroom mirror with added storage can be mounted anywhere. You can also install a recessed mirrored medicine cabinet that is built into your wall for a seamless, low-profile appearance.
If you’re looking for a special type of mirror glass, there are gray, bronze, and other tinted mirrors available to match the style or mood of your home. These specialty tinted glass types create a striking look and can be custom-cut into different shapes and sizes.
If you’re concerned about breakage or if you’re looking to keep your mirror costs low, you can opt for acrylic mirrors. These mirrors are made from plasticine mirrored “glass” that is lightweight, resistant to cracks and breaks, and can be cut to custom shapes. Acrylic mirrors are a shatterproof mirror option that works well in home gyms, dance studios, and children’s rooms.
Types of Mirror Mounts
Mirror installation experts will know the correct method of mirror mounting to suit your walls. From drywall anchors and L-bars to brackets and hooks, there are a variety of mirror mounting options available. Consult a contractor to determine the best mounting type for the size and weight of your mirror.
In general, smaller mirrors (less than 3 pounds) will require nails, hangers, or picture wire. Lightweight unframed mirrors may even be installed with a mastic mount using caulk as a sort of glue. With larger and heavier mirror types, installation may require special brackets, wall anchors, or bolts.
