We have all been there as children when we accidentally break a mirror. The mirror turns out to be a family heirloom that came over on the Mayflower. Our parents yell at us like we just burned down the neighborhood. They have had that mirror in the family for the last ten generations. Now their future grandkids will never see that mirror because of us. Parents always say something like that, even if it isn’t exactly true. In any case, no matter the shape of the mirror, width and length, it can be replaced. Don’t let that guilt trip get you down.
Custom-made mirrors are becoming easier to find. There are businesses that do this for the public at a good price. It’s great to be able to find a wide selection of square, round and rectangular framed mirrors featuring wood or metal. Or they can make a custom-made mirror just for you by using the original frames and mouldings that you bring into the business. Almost anything can be used as a frame. You are only limited by your own imagination. Bring the frame in with you or choose one at the business, and they will be able to set you up with a one of a kind mirror. Let’s look at times when having custom-made mirrors will save you much time from having to search.
Custom-Made Bathroom Mirrors
When building a house or doing a bathroom remodel, having one huge mirror over the sink instead of a medicine cabinet could come in handy. There can even be simple shapes cut out of the mirror to allow for outlet covers, towel racks, or random things. Quite a few of the newer bathrooms have dual sinks as well, so one nice long mirror covering the whole entire length is a great option. Remember that these mirrors can practically be cut into any size and shape, and the cost of it is not going to break your wallet. You could actually go a bit crazy and mirror as much of the bathroom as you want. You could have more mirrors than a changing room at a clothing store.
Entryways, just like mirrors, come in various shapes and sizes. There always has to be a sizable mirror in the entryway. People like to come in from the outside while visiting and make sure they look presentable. However, if your entryway is a unique size, you have to get a mirror that is just right. Maybe you have something in your basement or your garage that could be used as an “antique” frame for the mirror also. The entryway is the first part of the house that people see, so having something special there could make a strong first impression.
A professional business should have professional looking offices. No matter the business, you have to act and look like you should be able to have quality customers. The business has to be nicely decorated, including custom mirrors on the walls. With custom-made things, it presents a sense of professionalism that is not achieved with store bought mirrors that everyone has. The great part is that custom-made mirrors do not cost any more than the ones that are already pre-cut with a flimsy border around it.
The main decision when getting things custom-made is the price of it. If there is an increase in price, then people will try to rationalize into buying something less expensive, even if it does not look quite as good. However, custom-made mirrors do not cost anything extra. The thickness of the mirror can be adjusted as well. The width and the length can be cut in different sizes, making it a perfect fit anywhere. Something that is custom-made without costing more should be a no-brainer.
