How To Hang Decorative Wall Mirrors
It is not unusual for people to want their homes to express their character, class, choice and so on. One of the best forms of expression is through the fitting of decorative mirrors.
Once youâ€™ve purchased your mirror you want to make sure that it is mounted correctly to avoid any accidents happening. It would be very sad having invested in a mirror to break because it wasnâ€™t secure. The thing with hanging your mirror is to get it done well the first time. You will be able to get a mirror complete with other accessories at any one of the following: frameless mirror clips, oval mirrors, oversized decorative mirrors
You need to think carefully about the position where you want to hang the mirror. Your mirror can be secured using various things. One option is to have two studs with a wire attached running across the width at the back. You can secure the mirror by hanging it onto a stud on the wall.
You can use glue or adhesive and properly stick it in place. Two versions of glue are available. There is the type that you will stick to the rear of the mirror running right around it and attach it your wall. Or you could have adhesive pads that you stick at strategic points along the mirror and then stick it up on the wall.
The only problem with this method of hanging a mirror is its more or less permanent. So you can use glue or adhesive pads in places like your bathroom where the position of your mirror is unlikely to change. Even in places like passages and entrances you can use this method as well.
The frame that is around the mirror can be used to secure it in place whether it is wood or aluminium. Rivets or bolts can be used for the mirror with a metal frame and screws can used to attach the type with a wooden frame. Normally the place where you buy the mirror should be able to give you advice on the best way to hang your particular mirror up.
