Make yoour own D-I-Y Bathroom Decorative Mirror

For once, let me focus attention on our bathroom, one of the eye catching piece in our bathroom is the decorative mirror, people might not pay much attention to it, but let me tell you that it is one of the most well known decorative piece in our bathroom. It is known that it can provide the best finishing touch in a bathroom – providing both function and aesthetic, they are necessary for everyday grooming as well as completing the look of your new or existing bathroom. Well it is always known that the decorative mirrors are sometimes hard to find and most are pretty much expensive. So, is there a way to make ends meet? Well I think that you can create a decorative mirror yourself.

Measurements are always an important part of this piece. First up, measure the area where you want to place the mirror, for example, we are working with a 48″ vanity when referring to our measurements, and so you will want to adjust accordingly for your vanity size. For our 48″ vanity, we are going to choose a 36″ rectangle mirror, allowing 6″ on each side for the tile decoration. For height, there are a couple of options, if you cannot find a mirror that is the exact height of the ceiling, you can place tile all the way around the mirror for a complete border. It is always on a high note to consider these measurements.

Ok choosing a style, first you should choose the style. For this example choose a small mosaic tile, no bigger than 2×2, for your mirror border. Try to match your countertop color by bringing tile samples home and placing them on the counter. Find tiles that mimic the tone/color of your countertop without being completely matched up. A mosaic tile with several color tones in it will give you the best look. It can be a very good design for your decorative mirror. So, I suggest having it look its best.

Now to finish things off, place the mirror on the wall so it is centered horizontally and vertically in the space. If you have a light fixture, you’ll want to work below it or remove it and leave the space open for re-installation. Once you have attached the mirror to the wall with glue, you can begin installing the tile around the perimeter of the mirror. And there you have it, your own D-I-Y decorative mirror; it is much more convenient over the expensive branded ones. So it’ll be a good deal for your bathroom and your budgets.
