Other than glass being used for windows, bottles and shower screens, another of glass’s most common uses is for mirrors. It is not too much of a stretch to say that every home in the modern world has at least one mirror, whether that be a large, mirrored door on a wardrobe, a shaving mirror in the bathroom,  or a small compact mirror in a makeup bag.

It is more than likely that many of us take mirrors almost for granted and do not give them a second thought given that we encounter so many of them each day of our lives. Having said that,  there will also be some who cannot pass a mirror without checking that they look their best.

As well as the common use of glass mirrors in enabling us to see our reflection, when it comes to domestic properties, mirrored glass is also used when they are being designed or redesigned as part of a home renovation, whether that be for the entire house or a single room. There are numerous ways that mirrored glass can be used to augment a home, and here are seven of them.

#1 – Mirrored Walls

If you are seeking the best way to make a small room feel much bigger than they are, then having a mirrored wall is the answer. As well as making the room seem bigger, a mirrored wall can also make the room seem much brighter as it reflects most of the light back into the room.

#2 – Mirrored Splashback

Using a mirrored splashback in rooms such as your kitchen or bathroom is another great way to utilise mirrored glass. In the kitchen particularly, they increase the perceived space that you have, and they are also easy to clean. One important safety point is that if used behind a cooker hob the specifications of the mirrored glass must be able to withstand moisture and heat.

#3 – Mirrored Garden Wall

For those with a landscaped garden or even if you at least have a seated area, then having a mirrored wall is a great way to create a unique feature within your garden. A large, mirrored garden wall also allows whoever is facing it to see the beauty of the garden even if they sitting with their back to that garden.

#4 – Mirrored Tiles

This is where you have a large degree of scope in terms of how artistic you want your tiled area to be. You can go for basic square mirrored tiles at one end of the scale, through to bespoke customised mirrored tiles at the other end, with the option of having those tiles placed into specific designs or even into a specific shape to depict an object or an animal, for example.

#5 – Mirrored Cupboards

In addition to the mirrored wardrobe doors we have already mentioned, mirrored glass is also an ideal surface for cupboard doors. These can be cupboards in the kitchen, or the bathroom, or you could use them for the fronts of wall units in your lounge or living room.

#6 – Mirrored Ceilings

For the ultimate in opulence, and some might say decadence, why not have mirrors on your ceiling. As well as increasing the amount of light in any room they are used, they can also make that room seem much taller than it is. Of course, they will also be a talking point amongst your visitors and the subject of more than a few comments should you choose to have a mirrored ceiling in your bedroom.

#7 – Custom Mirrors

You could choose to simply purchase standard mirrors from homeware stores, but wouldn’t you prefer to have mirrors that were unique to you and our home? You could have mirrors created that are any shape, any size, and which complement perfectly the overall design and character of your home.
