We use them when we get ready in the morning. We use them as a decorative piece. We might use them to make a room feel larger. Mirrors serve many purposes, depending on your space and style. Mirrors are essential to every home, and many of us overlook their importance. Keep reading to learn about the types of mirrors that are available and get mirror décor ideas to spruce up your home.
Benefits of Mirrors
Mirrors are for more than practical uses like checking out our reflection. They can do so much more in your home:
- Create the illusion of space
- Increase lighting
- Hide imperfections in a room
- Serve as a statement piece
Omni’s custom sizing, shapes and patterns, paired with our beveling and framing options, offer the freedom to design a mirror to match your existing décor. Our selection is so extensive; you won’t be leave empty-handed.
Types of Mirrors
Frameless or framed
Frameless mirrors are generally seen in bathrooms over the vanity. Due to their sleek and clean look, they complement every type of décor and style. Frameless mirrors also “open up” a room.
If a frameless mirror is too simple for your taste, we work with Precision Frameworks to offer framed mirror solutions. The frames, which mount directly to the face of the mirror, are custom built for any size. 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 mirror edges 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 leaves the mirror thinner around the edges and thicker in the center. This style is normally used in places where the mirror is a focal point in the room.
Seamed edge: In this application, the mirror is sanded to dull the sharp edges so the mirror is safe to handle. Choose a seamed edge if the mirror is to be framed and in applications where the edges are not visible.
