Keeping Glass in Top Condition: A Guide

Hello! My name is Vince. Last year, I learnt a very important lesson - if you do not look after the glass in your home, it will not look after you. You see, I hadn't really inspected, cleaned or carried out any maintenance work on the glass windows and doors in my home. One day, during a storm, the glass in one of my windows shattered. I didn't know what to do. When I called in a glass contractor, he said that the glass had failed due to a hairline crack. He replaced the other pieces of glass in my home and gave me some advice about glass care.

Why Mirrors Are More Important Than You Might Think in Your Bathroom

While a bathroom is certainly a functional space, there is one element that is perhaps more important than all the others — a mirror. Yet while this may be the case, the type of mirror that you choose for your special restroom should be more than just a functional object, but something that can help to give this room a complete makeover. What can mirrors do to help transform life for your family in the bathroom?

Making It Bigger

If you happen to live in the middle of a big city, you may not have the luxury of space. You may find that your bathroom is quite small as a consequence, but if you choose a mirror carefully, it can give you the illusion that the room is much bigger than it actually is. Try putting a mirror on the wall opposite the window, and this will give you even more "depth."

Being Artistic

You may even be able to get away without putting any specific artwork within the bathroom, as a well-placed mirror can provide the same type of effect. Add a decorative frame to the mirror, and once again place it opposite the window so that you effectively get a "picture" on the wall anyway.

Let There Be Light

Perhaps your bathroom does not have an outside window, and if so, a mirror can help to add a lot more light to the space. This is because the wall mirror will reflect any light and transmit it around the room very effectively. Perhaps it would be best for you to put several small mirrors in the room, which can create an even better effect.

Mirrored Cabinets

Consider getting a wall-mounted cabinet that has a mirror as its door. Then, you can kill two birds with one stone by hiding all of your gear away, where nobody can see it. You may opt to get a custom-made mirror to fit a particular type of cabinet you have in mind, or choose from something that is readily available.

Working Out What's Right for You

Take your time when choosing what type of mirrors to put in to the various bathrooms in your home, as after all, you shouldn't forget that they are as much a style statement as any of the furniture fittings elsewhere. Talk with a mirror specialist to help you choose the perfect option, no matter how small or unusually shaped your bathroom may be.
