Mirrors can essentially be supplied and installed in any location in your home. You’ve got the most popular places like your bathroom, your en suites, your toilets, but now people are starting to include full wall instillation in the living areas of their home with great effect.

The good thing about mirrors is they can reflect whatever’s in front of them. If you’ve got a nice statue or a nice outlook, a nice view this can be reflected in the mirror and bring that view within the home. You can also increase a depth of field within the room and make it look longer, you can make it look wider.

 

Mirrors are great at reflecting light into any room and this is a great addition if you’ve got a darkened room that needs brightening up.

 

There are two different edge finishes to consider when ordering your next mirror. A polished edge is the simple and most popular edge finish to any mirror. We simply grind the edges flat and this ensures that no light is reflected through the edge of the glass causing a sparkle after it’s been fitted.

A beveled edge refers to a slanted grind across the front face of the mirror and this can cause a picture frame effect.

 

This is definitely more popular within older homes, or where you’re trying to make that mirror stand out and give it a little bit more depth off the wall.

Another option with your mirrors is choosing between a tinted glass or a silver glass. Our stock mirrors come in gray tinted, bronze tinted, or silver.

 

Now as I’m sure you can understand silver is the most popular option. Grey mirrors are also starting to become popular among large wall installation. This creates a softer reflection that tends to blend in well with a lot of other interior furnishings.
