Can You Have a Mirror Cut to Size?

Mirrors are not just functional elements; they’re crucial design pieces that can define the character of a space. The ability to have a mirror cut to a specific size and shape opens up a world of possibilities, allowing you to tailor it precisely to your requirements. Here’s what you need to know about customising your mirror.

Deciding on Size and Shape: Key Considerations

When contemplating the perfect mirror for your space, consider the following:

  • Placement:
    Where in your home will the mirror be located? The room and specific spot can influence the size and shape.
  • Purpose:
    What’s the mirror’s main function? Is it for practical use, such as in a bathroom, or more decorative, like in a living room?
  • Design Aesthetics:
    How will the mirror complement the existing decor of the room?

Special Requirements for Your Mirror

Custom mirrors can vary significantly based on individual needs:

  • Thickness:
    Depending on where it’s placed, the mirror’s thickness might vary for durability or aesthetic reasons.
  • Colour and Effects:
    From classic silver to contemporary tints like bronze or grey, and even specialised effects like antique finishes – the options are broad.
  • Shape Diversity:
    Whether you need a standard rectangle or something more unique like an ellipse, semi-circle, or even a T or L shape, custom cuts are available.

Size Limitations: What You Need to Know

The size of a custom-cut mirror can range significantly. However, there are practical limitations to consider, both in terms of how large a single piece of glass can be and how small it can be while retaining functionality.

The intended use of the mirror may dictate its minimum size. For example, a full-length mirror needs to be large enough to provide a complete reflection.

I’ve just replaced my wooden staircase balustrades with toughened glass. I used Express Toughening to supply the 10mm thick glass panels. The company is very professional and helpful. The project went well.
