Mirrors are essential to every home! We use them everyday. While mirrors are useful, they are often beautiful as well. In this week’s featured product spotlight we are highlighting the different types of mirrors that Omni can provide and some benefits.
Framed or frameless:
With a sleek and clean look, frameless mirrors are generally seen in bathrooms over the vanity compliment every type of décor and style. Frameless mirrors also “open up” a room more.
If a frameless mirror is too simple for your taste, we work with Precision Frameworks to offer framed mirror solutions. The frames are custom built for any size and the frame mounts directly to the face of the mirror. With different frame options, there is a frame color and style for everyone.
We can help you out with four basic shapes: rectangle, square, circle and oval.
We recommend several edge types for your custom mirror.
Flat polish edge: In this application the edges of the mirror have been polished to a smooth shiny finish. Choose a flat polish when the edges of your mirror are visible and you prefer a minimalistic look.
Beveled polish edge: In this edge type, the edges of the mirror are cut and polished in an angle with a specific bevel width to produce a certain “look.” This process leave the mirror thinner around the edges and thicker in the center. This is normally used in places where the mirror is a focal point in the room.
Seamed edge: In this application, after the mirror is cut the edges are sanded to dull the sharp edges. This is to make the mirror safe to handle. Choose a seamed edge if the mirror is to be framed and in applications where the edges are not visible.
