When you need to maximise space in the bathroom, a wall-mounted frameless mirror is the ideal solution. It doesn't take up as much space as a medicine cabinet, making the room look tidy and streamlined.
Frameless mirrors suit almost any style of bathroom but work especially well in contemporary homes. This mirror is the same width as the vanity, measuring 900 x 750mm, and is mounted flush to the wall.
When mounting the mirror, it's best to get someone to help as glass can be heavy and awkward to maneuver. Cut blocks of timber to help support it while the adhesive cures.
TIP Mount the mirror at an appropriate height to suit all bathroom users.
Have a helper hold the mirror up against the wall and mark the base edge. Measure the distance between the mark and the vanity and cut two lengths of timber to size for spacers. Position the spacers on the vanity and use them to support the mirror when mounting it.
Secure strips of double-sided tape to the back of the mirror at the top, base and sides, leaving the backing on one side. Apply mirror adhesive to the vinyl cutouts on the back of the mirror.
TIP Ensure the wall and the mirror are clean before applying the adhesive.
Peel one corner from the backing of the tape so it extends beyond the mirror’s edge. Stand the mirror on the spacers, then press the mirror against the wall and check it is level. Remove the rest of the backing from the tape by pulling the remaining corners.
