Upgrading Your Bathroom's Mirror

by Eric Olson

The bathroom mirror can be one of the most used fixtures in your house as every member of your family will need to use the mirror when they are getting ready. As a result, it is often the case that a homeowner will want to invest some resources into upgrading the bathroom mirror so that it can be as effective as possible.

Choose A Durable Frame For The Mirror

In addition to the size of the mirror, you will want to consider the frame that surrounds it. This part of the mirror will help to protect the edges of the glass while also enriching the appearance of the bathroom as a whole. However, some mirror frames can be more difficult to keep maintained than others. For example, a bathroom mirror frame that has a number of small grooves in it can take longer and more work to clean. Additionally, those that are made of wood or other porous materials may become stained or discolored more easily, which can be a reason to opt for vinyl or metal frames.

Add Lighting Near The Mirror

Individuals will often complain that their bathroom mirror makes them look worse than they actually look in reality. This is usually the result of bad lighting that can cast shadows on your face and body. When you are installing a new bathroom mirror, you will want to choose one that leaves enough space on each side for lighting fixtures to be installed. By ensuring that both sides of your face and body are receiving equal light, you can improve the accuracy of the reflection that you are seeing. Installing these lighting fixtures may require some electrical work in order to connect them to the electrical system, but these costs should be relatively minimal due to the minimal amount of electricity that they will require.

Consider Privacy When Placing The Mirror

Many homes will have large bathrooms that are designed so that multiple individuals can get ready at the same time. If this is the case with your home's bathroom, you will want to consider privacy when placing the mirror. For example, larger bathrooms will often have the shower in a recess or behind a privacy wall. When placing the mirror, you will want to ensure that the mirror is positioned so that the privacy of the other areas of the bathroom are protected. As part of this process, you will want to consider the various angles at which someone could look at the mirror rather than simply considering when you are standing in front of it and looking straight ahead.

It's pretty clear. Glass is the way of the future, at least when it comes to architectural design. People are wanting to bring more and more natural light into their buildings, both because this promotes health and reduces energy bills. What better way to do this than with many windows? Of course, to keep up with this demand, glass companies have had to work hard to create strong glass formulas. And they don't just work on windows. They also create glass tiles, mirrors, plates, statues, and more. Learn about these many glass applications, and the wonders of glass in general, on this website.
