Mirror Tips and Design Ideas

Large mirrors are, of course, appropriate for large bathrooms. However, if you hang a large mirror in a more compact bathroom, you will notice that it will open up the space and make it look larger and sunnier. It's wise to choose a larger mirror more often than you might think.
Have you ever wondered why you look better in your favorite designer boutique's mirror or the mirror at the gym? This is because these facilities use an ultra clear mirror; the glass used in this type contains less iron content, which eliminates the common "green tint." The result is a true, unhindered reflection, unsurpassed in quality and presentation.

About Frameless Wall & Bathroom Mirrors:

  • These are typically installed directly onto the wall.
  • Mirror glass is heavy and fragile, so the supporting wall must be strong.
  • All of our mirrors are "cut to fit," so you can be as creative as you would like with your space.
  • Maximum size in one sheet of mirror is 84" by 130".
  • Sheets of mirror can be organized next to each other to cover an entire wall.
  • It's appealing to use the largest size mirrors for a seamless look, but first, make sure that mirror sheets can fit through the doors and into the bathroom space.
  • We normally use J-bars or L-bars to support the mirror at the bottom and top. Several different finishes and colors are available, including: chrome, brushed nickel, brass and oil rubbed bronze.
  • Decorative Clips, standoffs and rosettes are also available. These can be installed either on the corners or through the mirrors for achieving your desired look.
  • We use mastic to glue the mirror to the wall for maximum safety.
  • Decorative edges, such as a beveled edge, are available.
  • Concerned about the openings in the wall? Worry no more; we can provide openings for electrical outlets. Safety Backing may be required, depending on the size of the mirror and number of openings for items such as electrical outlets.

Foyer Mirror

  • Every foyer is different. Many ranch-style homes provide a wide- walled entry as someone steps inside to face a choice of directions. Some two-story homes also have a two-story foyer, and present the entry to the upstairs as well. However, off-the-shelf mirrors only come in few sizes and in basic frames, all of which limits creativity.
  • We make it easy for you to customize the perfect mirror for your space, while in the comfort of your own home. You specify the size, shape and number of mirror panels, plus choose your edge and glass style to create a unique look. From a beveled edge or peach-tinted round mirror to a flat ground rectangular mirror, there are many to select from.
  • Why spend hours searching for the perfect foyer mirror, only to settle for something you don't love in the end? Let us partner with you to create the perfect focal point for your foyer.
 

Open Up Interior Space With a Unique Focal Point

The entry way is the first room anyone sees upon entering your home. It should be decorated to greet guests and introduce your style. Since entry ways are also a smaller area of a home, custom foyer mirrors, scaled and styled for a perfect fit, open up space and make those first impressions count.

 

Enhance dull spaces with clarity and light

Wall mirrors add a great design element to any room, but are especially useful for expanding narrow rooms, poorly lit hallways and tight nooks. Strategically placed, wall mirrors invite light and open spaces. Put a wall mirror at a right angle to your windows to maximize an open feel. Also, by carefully choosing the object your wall mirror reflects, you can repeat accent color and emphasize the object's visual importance in your decor.

 

Mirror Thickness and Types for Wall Mirrors

Your design can be achieved not only by custom-cut shapes and sizes, but also different thicknesses and types of mirror. We recommend the following type of mirror for your wall:
1/4" Clear Mirror

Useful Tips and Clever Design Ideas

Go beyond the framed wall mirror. Home stores emphasize framed mirrors because these are easy to pack and ship, but don't assume that's the best style for your wall. Instead browse these strategies for making your custom wall mirror count:

  • Use small mirrors hung in a pattern when a wall (and room) need light, but the object that mirror would reflect is not especially appealing. The larger pattern of multiple mirrors becomes the design element, and the object being reflected becomes obscured.
  • Choosing what your wall mirror will reflect. Aiming a mirror toward nature or other natural elements will add comfort and soothing style. Suggestions include, facing your mirror (or mirror pattern) across from plants, a large vase with flowers, a table-top rock garden, an outdoor garden or deck, a room with a view. The wall mirror could also reflect an interesting piece of art. If the wall mirror comprises multiple smaller mirrors, the reflection would create a new piece of art.
  • Another design strategy is to create the effect of "knocking out" a wall. When placed across from a room opening, floor-to-ceiling mirrors add a second opening on the reflecting wall and the feel of additional open space.
 
 

Vanity Mirrors

  • Bathrooms can significantly differ in area and arrangement. Additionally, vanities can come in a variety of shapes and depths, and are often stuck in a corner or against a less central wall. All of this makes it harder to find just the right mirror, hence the need for customization.
  • Vanity mirrors are generally sold in only a few sizes, with basically no options for edging or glass style. We at HR Glass& mirror make it easy to choose exactly what you want, be it a beveled edge or frosted glass. Whether you view your vanity as art or purely functional, we can accommodate your needs.
  • We know how much time and effort you have put into the design of your bathroom. Why settle for something less than ideal? Design is in the details; let us help you create your perfect vanity mirror.
 

Vanity Mirrors are an excellent addition to any bathroom

Besides allowing you to groom to your hearts content, the reflective quality of the glass brings light into a room. Whether it is natural sunlight from a window or an electric light fixture, a vanity mirror will add the illumination necessary to highlight your beautiful bathroom.
