Mirrors for home gyms: Everything you need to know about ordering custom gym mirrors
Updated: Apr 6, 2021
The home gym has become more and more popular in recent years, as fitness enthusiasts have opted to swap sweaty shared equipment for their own private workout zone.
Covid-enforced gym closures over the past year have only seen this move to home gyms accelerate even more, with thousands of garages, spare rooms, basements and attics across the country being cleared out to make space for weights benches, treadmills and rowing machines.
But if you're aiming to recreate an authentic workout experience at home, you're going to want to make sure your home gym looks the part, with custom gym mirrors made to fit.
Mirrors for home gyms made to fit
As leading suppliers of mirrors for the North East, we can supply and fit gym mirrors in any size you could need.
Our client for this particular project opted for 6mm silver mirror, stuck directly and securely to the plastered walls. As an added precaution, we recommend fitting home gym mirrors with a safety film backing, which holds the glass safely in place should it be broken during an overzealous kettlebell swing.
Our gym mirrors can also be cut to fit around plug sockets, irregular sloped ceilings, light fittings, or any other fixtures and fittings.
There are four options open to clients when it comes to fixing home gym mirrors:
Stuck to the wall
Drilled and screwed to the walls
Mirror channel top and bottom
Framed mirrors (the fixing is then attached to the frame)
What size should your home gym mirror be?
When it comes to gym mirrors, it's often the case that the bigger the better. Our second case study client above certainly thought so, and opted for a full wall of mirrors for their home gym.
Not only is this a great choice for monitoring and improving your positioning and posture in the gym, it's also ideal for making a room feel twice the size. Light is bounced to all corners of your home gym, making for an altogether brighter and airier workout space.
Glass & Mirror Solutions can supply mirrors in any size and will custom make your home gym mirrors, ensuring a perfect fit whatever size you go for.
