How To Fit A Bathroom Mirror

How To Fit A Bathroom Mirror

A well placed mirror is a must in any bathroom, both in terms of governance and reflects light in the room to help create a sense of space. There are different versions of bathroom mirror which can be incorporated into the presentation of the bathroom, such as vanity mirrors, heated mirrors, those that can be pasted or hung on the wall tiles or mirror.

If your mirror has holes, it is necessary to use screws to hang the mirror on the wall. These are the kinds of special screws that secure the caps interest on them, to obtain an order of finish. Caps may be flat or rounded, and can be locked or screwed into place, depending on the design chosen. Mirror screws vary in design. Some have rubber rings to go into the hole to prevent the screws to damage or break the ice when they are tight.

To fix a mirror on the wall, you should use a strong adhesive and a splint to support the mirror while drying. Cut a strip of the same width of your mirror, place the level on the wall where the bottom of your mirror go and fix the wall. Use of a sealant gun, apply adhesive on the back of the mirror and move it to its position on the wall, with the lower edge on the upper part of the slat. Once you have enough time to dry adhesive, you can remove the stick and fill the holes with putty before decorating.

Mirror tiles are another option to consider in the bathroom. With a pencil, draw a line on the wall where the bottom edge of the tiles will go. Use a spirit level to that. Then draw a vertical line to make sure the first column of tiles is level. Stick the stickers on the corners of your tiles, then to the wall, using the pencil lines to guide you.

If you decide to opt for a heated bathroom mirror, the installation is more complicated. Using a spirit level to mark the positions of the last two clips, to ensure that the distance between them corresponds to insertion points on the back of the mirror. Attach the clips in place. Then, again with a spirit level and measuring tape, mark the positions of the first two clips and screw them in place. While they can slide up and down, the best clips will be a hole of oval shape, while the lower will have circular holes for the fixing screws. Once the electrician has done the electrical work necessary to mount the lower edge of the mirror in the clips below and push the wall plate, then slide the clips on the insertion points on the back of the mirror.
