Mirror glass: a guide to ordering from Glass & Mirror Solutions
Custom mirror glass is a design solution that guarantees instant impact. If you are ordering a made to measure mirror for your home, here are five things to consider:
1. Why use mirror glass?
From bathroom mirrors to wall mirrors installed in your home gym, mirror glass can perform many useful, practical functions around the home, including:
An alternative to tiles:
Hygienic and easy to clean, mirror glass is particularly useful in bathrooms and kitchens, where it can be used for splashbacks.
If there is a wall on your home with an unsightly hole, scratch or discolouration, a bespoke mirror is the ideal way to hide it.
Create the illusion of space:
A well-placed mirror in a small or confined space such as hallway or bathroom will make it seem more expansive, reflecting the room and making it appear larger than it actually is.
Mirror glass will reflect sunlight, as well as light from ceiling lights, lamps and candles, making the room appear airy and spacious. What’s more, it will help illuminate the room during the daytime and save on your energy costs.
2. The WOW factor
Whilst mirrors have many practical applications, don’t forget that they also look stunning!
A highly versatile design solution, mirror glass can be designed and installed to suit any sized space or aesthetic (see above). If you wish to update the look of a room, or create an eye-catching feature or focal point, then mirror glass is for you.
3. Location, location, location
Where you plan to install your mirror glass panels is an important consideration when ordering them, as it has both practical and aesthetic implications.
For instance, if you require a mirror for your home gym then wall-mounted mirror glass panels are the safest option as this keeps them out of the way of equipment.
The position of your mirror is also something to consider, as it can affect the impact it has. Positioning your wall mirrors opposite the source of light, for example, will bounce it back into the room, brighten up the whole space.
4. Get the look
Like all our glass products, Glass & Mirror Solutions supply custom mirror glass in a wide range of finishes to compliment the look of your home.
Smoked glass and antique mirror effects, for example, are perfect if you are going for a vintage look, whereas the uninterrupted sight lines of frameless mirror glass panels tick those modernist boxes.
What’s more, there are a number of edging and lighting choices too, meaning that we can supply you with a custom mirror as unique as you are.
5. Measure up
Made-to-measure wall mirrors can be supplied to fit almost anywhere and as a result are a perfect fit whatever the space, from alcoves to splashbacks.
To get a quote from a mirror glass supplier, measure the width and height of the area you want your wall mirror to cover. This will give the supplier a good idea of the size of the mirror glass needed, the hardware required to mount it, and any associated costs.
However, order mirror glass from Glass & Mirror Solutions and we will always come and measure up the space ourselves. This not only ensures accurate measurements for an exact fit, but also enables us to see how we will access your home and the maximum panel size that can be accommodated when it comes to installation.
