How To Make A Plain Mirror Look Great

Many new homes come with finished bathrooms that look beautiful. However, unless your home is on the more expensive end and very custom, you probably have pretty plain mirrors in the bathrooms. They are just a piece of glass that is adhered to the wall, with no frame or anything that makes the mirror look better. When it comes to making a mirror look better in your bathroom and having more of a high end look, there are a few things that you can do.

1. Framing. One of the best ways to dress up your bathroom mirror is to add a frame around it. Most of the time the mirror just has plain edges that do not add any aesthetic value to the bathroom. Framing can be done easily and inexpensively. You can use molding that is cut to size and frame in the mirror completely. You can use different colors and styles to make that plain mirror come to life and match your home's style. Instead of a wooden frame, you can also tile around the mirror. This is a great way to add texture and design to the bathroom. This will make your bathrooms feel like they were custom built and that a lot of money was spent installing expensive mirrors.

2. Lighting. Another great way to make a bathroom mirror look higher end is to improve the lighting in the bathroom. If there is not already lighting directly over the mirror you can install them. Lights can be used around the mirror or even on the mirror to make it more useful and more beautiful. A mirror that has lights on or around it can be used as a vanity and is a lot easier to use. It also gives that old and plain mirror a superior look.

3. Decorating. Another simple trick to making mirrors look better is to add decorations to them. For example, you could put vinyl lettering that spells out a family name, phrase or special design that is meaningful to you. By sticking this to the mirror you can change the background up a little bit so that the ordinary mirror becomes extraordinary.

These are just a few of the ways that you can upgrade the mirror. Having a standard and plain mirror can make an otherwise beautiful bathroom look unfinished. These simple and inexpensive finishes are a great addition to any unadorned mirror. For more suggestions on mirrors, talk to a company like Glasshopper Schor Glass.
