Useful Tips and Tricky Design Ideas

Large mirrors are of course, appropriate for large bathrooms. However, if you place a very large mirror in a very small sized bathroom you will notice that it will miraculously open up your bathroom and make it look larger and lighter. This also gives the whole bathroom an airy feel. This is the power of a large mirror.

Ever wonder why you look better in your favorite designer stores 'mirror or your fancy gyms' mirrors? That's because they use ultra clear mirror, the glass that is used in this type of mirror contains less Iron content which eliminates the normal "green tint" from the glass. Result: A true, unhindered reflection that is unsurpassed in quality and presentation.

What to Do With Your Old Mirror?

During removal of your existing mirror, there is a good chance that the mirror will break into pieces. We will happily recycle your mirror.

There is also a possibility that the wall (usually dry-wall) maybe damaged during removal of the old mirror, this depends on many factors including but not limited to: age of the mirror, type of the glue used to adhere the glass mirror to the wall, and type of the hardware used to hold the mirror onto the wall. Not to worry most of this is normally covered with the new mirror placement.

Dulles Glass and Mirror does not currently provide services for moving or cutting your existing mirrors.

Add safety backing online

  • If breakage occurs, glass fragments are held in place to reduce the risk of injury from scattered glass and make cleanup easier.
  • Strengthens the mirror overall, increasing impact strength to help prevent breakage.
  • Prevents moisture entrapment to keep mirror from delamination.

Mounting your custom bathroom mirror:

  • Mirror Mastic can be used as an adhesive to glue the mirror to the wall for maximum safety.
  • Mirror glass is heavy and fragile, so the supporting wall must be well supported.
  • J-bars or L-bars can be used to support the mirror in the bottom and top. Several different finishes and colors available including: Chrome, brushed nickel, and brass.

About Frameless Bathroom Mirrors:

  • It is always nice to use the largest size mirrors for a "seamless look" but you need to make sure that there is enough access to the space and mirror sheets can fit through the doors and openings.
  • We normally use J-bars or L-bars to support the mirror in the bottom and top. Several different finishes and colors available including: Chrome, brushed nickel, brass and oil rubbed bronze.
