3 Easy Ways to Work with Mirrors
Enhance your space with these hints and tricks
If you're looking for ideas on how to make a small space seem bigger, one of the top results would probably lead you to adding mirrors at home. Fortunately, there's a lot that you can do to maximize the use of these pieces!
If you're planning to install a full-length or a gallery-type mirror in your space, here are a few reminders to take note of:
Ask help from a professional
There are mirrors that require help from an expert when it comes to proper installation. Since you are also working with delicate pieces, it's best that you ask a professional to install them because there's a special type of glue (glass mirror adhesive or silicone sealant) that needs to be used.
If you’re renting your space, you don't necessarily have to drill holes to make this work. Explore using self-adhesive hooks that can easily be mounted and re-mounted without leaving residue on the walls.
RL Tip: If you're looking for powerful hooks, the 3M Command Hooks have adhesives that hold strongly onto the wall. It is available at Handyman (per set of six).
Choose the right location
Before you install your mirrors, make sure that you have evaluated the space first. Place mirrors next to windows and doors and not opposite them. This is to avoid pedestrians and people passing by your home to see everything inside your house.
