Useful Tips and Tricky Design Ideas

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 You Need to Know About Gym Mirrors:

  • Normally installed directly on the wall.
  • Mirror glass is heavy and fragile, so the supporting wall must be well supported.
  • All of our mirrors are "cut to fit" so you can be as creative as you want 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 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.
  • We use mastic to glue the mirror to the wall for maximum safety.
  • Decorative Clips, Standoffs and Rosettes are also available. These can be installed either on the corners or thru the mirrors for achieving your desired look.
  • Decorative edges such as a beveled mirror edge are normally not used in exercise room mirrors.
  • Concerned about the openings in the wall? Worry no more, we can provide you with cut outs for your electrical outlets as well as larger openings for vents or TV mounts.
  • Safety Backing may be required depending on the size of the mirror and number of cut outs for various openings such as electrical outlets.

Wall to Wall Mirror Installation

We offer two types of wall to wall mirror installation: a Wall to Wall Installation and a Short of Wall Installation. Both types of wall mirrors can be installed within two weeks, if the residence is within our service area.

A Wall to Wall Installation involves measuring a mirror to perfectly "fit" one entire wall, from edge to edge. This involves a glass professional measuring all dimensions of the wall in order to account for any irregularities, cut outs and outages, etc. The ultimate product is a perfectly fitted piece of glass mirror

This type of installation usually requires the use of a "J-bar" along the bottom and finishes at a "butt joint" with the adjacent walls and ceiling. The remaining exposed edges are polished.

This method of putting in a mirror creates a more seamless, clean look. However, due to the labor intensive process, the cost of a Wall to Wall Installation is consequently higher.

Short of Wall Installation

For a Short of Wall Installation, the customer provides the basic measurements to receive a quote; however, prior to installation a Dulles Glass & Mirror professional would need to get the final measurements.

The glass mirror will cover almost the entire wall, stopping about an inch from each edge. All outer edges of the mirror will be covered by J-bars. This type of installation is less exacting and labor intensive, which results in a lower cost.
