Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Nov 7, 2018Commercial Glass, Glass Cleaning Tips, Residential Glass

Mirrors add a dramatic flair to any room. Mirrors brighten and widen the smallest and darkest of rooms making them more comfortable and inviting. Wall mirrors add a decorative look to your room, creating an ideal focal point to your space. The key is choosing the right mirror for your room and the look that you want to create.

Mirror Tips


The size of the mirror directly correlates with the impact made in your room. If hanging your mirror on a large wall in your living room, dining room or bedroom, and want to make a bold statement, opt for an extra-large mirror, measuring between 25 and 31 inches on each side. If using your mirror as an accent on a small wall near your entryway, opt for a small one 10 inches on each side. Measuring your wall ensures you pick the perfect size and parameters.


Square and rectangular shape remain the most common, but there are as many shapes as you can imagine. Rectangular mirrors provide a traditional look, but choosing a mirror in an unusual shape brings attention to a wall and extra flair. Circular or oval wall mirrors create a striking look. Funky triangle and diamond-shaped mirrors add a quirky touch to any room. If you want to make a big design statement, however, choose a bold design that draws the eye.


Styles vary as much if not more than shape choices. Some wall mirrors rely on their size and shape to create a strong presence without a frame.  When you’re shopping for a mirror, however, you can also opt for a style with a frame that packs a decorative punch all its own. Choose a simple wooden or metal frame for a sleek, streamlined look. For a more formal, dramatic look, seek out a mirror with an ornate, gilded frame to serve as a strong focal point for your room. You can also find wall mirrors with mosaic-style frames that feature bits of tile for a fun, eye-catching look.

Maintenance and Care

Proper care of your mirrors requires a little extra maintenance and care.

Avoid Cleaning Glass while Dry

Do not wipe glass with a piece of cloth when the glass is dry. Dust particles on the cloth can scratch the glass and make it more susceptible to damage in the future. Use a moist soft duster or damp soft cloth for cleaning glass.

Do Not Use Soap

Avoid using soap or detergents of any kind as it can end up damaging the coating on the surface of the glass. Use specialized cleaner for glass to avoid damaging.

Be Gentle

Your mirror attracts dust particles while you are cleaning your carpet and vacuuming. So, try to wipe your mirror softly.

Strict ‘No’ for Paper Towels, Dry Cloth and Tissues

Avoid using paper towels, clothes and tissues as they may be soft, but may have a crude surface that can easily attract dust or scratch your mirror. Use microfibers to elongate their life.
