Mirrors in Schofield Barracks, HI

Decorative Mirrors
Mirrors are an easy way to add depth and energy to your living space. For example, adding a mirror opposite a window can flood a room with light; and placing a framed mirror above a mantel provides a focal point for a room. A mirror gallery wall, which can include framed and unframed mirrors of different shapes, sizes, and styles can create an eclectic effect. It's also important to consider what is across from a mirror before placing it. Mirror glass comes in several colors including: silver, grey or bronze.
Mirrors come in many sizes which do not necessarily have to correspond to the size of the room, as a large mirror can make a small room look larger. Full length mirrors have long been used in bedrooms, restaurants, dance studios, and exercise rooms to make smaller areas seem larger.
A framed full-length mirror can be displayed on an easel or framed and hung. Due to the weight of these types of mirrors, you may want to consider having them professionally hung. Frames come in many shapes, design styles and colors and can be ordered to fit any size mirror.
A frameless mirror is typically attached to a wall using an adhesive, hardware, or combination of the two. It is also supported with a metal strip called a "J" strip or an "L" strip, so named because of the letters they resemble. Both types support the weight of the mirror, but the "L" strip provides a more frameless look, as no metal is visible on the front of the mirror glass.
Round or oval mirrors present a traditional look whether framed or unframed. The rounded edges of a round or oval mirror provide some curves which are a lovely juxtaposition to the straight lines of a dresser, chest, or entry table. In general, choose a mirror that is to 5/6 the width of the furniture it is hanging above.
When we picture frameless mirrors, we often picture the standard vanity mirror. But frameless mirrors are an incredibly versatile product that don't have to be limited to the bathroom. Frameless mirrors can be cut to virtually any size and shape and can even be grouped to create a mirror gallery wall.
When a mirror is unframed, it should lie flush against the wall, for this reason it should be installed using a combination of adhesive and hardware as stated above.
When decorating with unframed mirrors, one might want to consider beveling along the edges to add a more finished look. Beveling can add depth and be customized in a variety of shapes and sizes with bevels ranging from to 2 inches.
Custom Mirror Frames
Custom fabricated mirror frames add a luxurious feel to any living space. The ideal piece can be created when decorating with framed mirrors because frame options vary so widely in color, style, and size.
Mirrors are an essential element in any bathroom and will always be included. But this doesn't mean they shouldn't be given some consideration in conjunction with the overall style of the room.
Mirrors should always be placed above the vanity, of course, but that doesn't mean they must be the standard rectangle or that the cannot be found elsewhere in the room. Think outside the box and try a unique shape for your vanity mirror. Experiment with placing two mirrors instead of one above a double sink. Try a mirror gallery wall like the one below. It will draw light from any light sources in the room and spread it throughout the room in interesting patterns. A full-length mirror on the door, wall, or easel is useful in the bathroom as well if there is room for it.
A wall that is entirely or almost entirely covered with mirrors is called a mirror wall. This is often done in dance studios and exercise spaces. Walls may be covered from floor to ceiling or sometimes chair-rail height to ceiling. Mirror size, height and shape can be customized to any room.
As with any frameless mirrors, when mirrors walls are typically attached to a wall using an adhesive, hardware, or combination of the two.
Having a large mirror in the bedroom can help spread light and make the room appear larger. It's also an obvious and most convenient place to have a full-length mirror. Placement is important here; for a major visual impact, lean a large mirror against one bedroom wall. The reflection will make the entire room look and feel larger. To make the most of natural light, place opposite a window. Add a mirror on a wall behind a chair or nightstand to depth and character.
The brilliant thing about mirrored closet doors is they deliver in both form and function. They needn't be the old-fashioned brass sliding doors either. Today's mirrored closet doors come in many styles and can be customized to fit any size closet.

Closet doors can be hung as sliders, bifold panels, or hinged doors and can span small to extra-large openings. Bifold mirrored closet doors and sliding mirrored doors are available in a large selection of mirror colors and styles including: beveled, frosted, opaque, milky and various colors. When adding mirrors to existing doors, it is important to evaluate whether the door hardware needs to be reinforced to accommodate the weight of the glass.
Mirrors can serve many functions depending on their size, shape and placement and have a place in every room of your home. No one knows mirrors in Schofield Barracks, HI like The Glass Guru!
