Diy Bathroom Mirror
DIY bathroom mirror projects can be quite exciting because a DIY bathroom mirror can change the feel of your bathroom instantly. Perhaps you already have a DIY bathroom mirror in your bathroom, that you fitted when you last did bathroom improvements. But removing this and hanging a larger mirror, or changing the style of the mirror, might be just the makeover effect you are looking for.
We don't just use mirrors in bathrooms so that we can watch ourselves brush our teeth, brush our hair, shave or put on makeup. Mirrors are magical tools when it comes to lightening and brightening small, dreary spaces - which many bathrooms are.
DIY Bathroom Mirror Ideas
If you feel that plain mirrors will produce an effect that is too chilly, think about investing in a grey-tinted old type of mirrors. Or, instead of using large mirrors, use a whole lot of differently shaped, framed mirrors as a novel collection on one of your bathroom walls.
Mirror tiles are another idea. You can mount them to cover a square or rectangular area on the wall, or stick them on to make strips or even geometric patterns that will add interest and a dramatically different impact to the room. Perhaps a little bizarre for some, mirror tiles can even be mounted on the ceiling.
Alternatively hang more conventional framed mirrors, many of which are manufactured specifically for bathroom use. Or consider magnifying mirrors next to the basin; they are great for doing makeup and ideal if you wear glasses and are short sighted. They look attractive too.
Since we are talking DIY here, you're going to be mounting or hanging mirrors yourself. Mirror tiles usually come with double-sided tape that you peel and then press firmly onto the wall surface. Most other smaller mirrors can be mounted using mirror corners that are a bit like old-fashioned photo corners. These will need to be screwed to the wall and the mirror then slotted into place. Do the top two corners first and then ask someone to hold the mirror firmly in place while you screw in the bottom two.
Large mirrors are too heavy to be held by corners. The usual solution is to have holes drilled through the mirror that you then use to screw it directly to the wall - using screws intended for the job. Don't try and drill these holes yourself, because you might break the mirror, and - apart from the superstition of bringing bad luck - mirrors aren't cheap. Rather ask your supplier to do this job for you.
Whichever type of mirror you decide to use, you'll be sure to get a special satisfaction when you look into your DIY bathroom mirror.
