Not long ago, frameless mirrors were the most popular—and economical—choice for bathroom vanities. With changing trends, however, framed bathroom mirrors are quickly becoming the more popular choice and a must-have feature when upgrading your bathroom. Mirrors can be expensive and upgrading to a completely new mirror is not always an option. How can you make the most of your existing wall-mounted mirror?
DIY Framed Bathroom Mirrors
There are many creative options available for framing your existing bathroom mirror. From DIY building projects to decorative tapes and fabrics, these projects can also be time-consuming and ultimately not as cost-effective. Companies like MirrorMates, however, offer custom-fit frames in multiple designs so that you are ensured the best fit for your existing mirror. The frames are easy to install, last at least five years, and can even be removed, reused, and replaced if you decide to remodel.
Why Frame My Existing Mirror?
Most builders grade mirrors —the frameless wall-mounted mirror in your bathroom—are glued to the wall or hung in such a way that removal will cause damage to the wall. By the time you pay to remove your mirrors, dispose of them, repair the walls, and replace them with framed bathroom mirrors, the cost adds up very quickly. Instead, you can save money by choosing to find a creative solution to spice up your existing mirror.
How Framed Bathroom Mirrors Emphasize Your Decor
Taking our wall-mounted mirror from plain to framed adds a touch of design to your bathroom. Unframed mirrors were a popular choice in most homes built at the end of the twentieth century. These mirrors make a space look dated and unfinished. Adding a frame can do wonders for your space.
Hide Blemished Edges
Framing your bathroom mirror can hide the blemished edges. This process, called silvering, happens over time to most builder-grade mirrors. While the scuffed edges do not impact the quality of the mirror itself, covering them with a frame can help make your bathroom look fresh, new, and clean.
Complete Your Space
Frames make a space look complete. Because unframed mirrors naturally look unfinished, adding a frame—especially one that matches your existing decor—can bring a sense of completion to your bathroom.
Compliment Your Bathroom Cabinets
Framing your bathroom mirror is a great way to tie the bathroom decor all together. Compliment your existing cabinets with a matching frame, or completely upgrade with new paint and finish, and get a frame to match.
Upgrade Your Bathroom Mirror with a Frame
Choosing a custom frame for your wall-mounted mirror is a great, easy, and affordable way to upgrade your bathroom. Finding the perfect frame is easy, and then it is a simple process to getting your frame in place. Simply measure, order, and install. If you are tired of looking at your dated unframed bathroom mirror, it may be time to upgrade with a simple-to-install custom frame.
