Can you frame a frameless mirror?

Enhancing your home's decor can be as simple as adding a frame to a frameless mirror. This small change can have a significant impact, infusing elegance or character into any room. At EGW, we understand the transformative power of a well-chosen frame, and we're here to guide you through the process of framing your frameless mirror for a stunning visual upgrade.

Preparation: Selecting Your Mirror

Before diving into framing, ensure you have the right base – a high-quality frameless mirror. Here's how to get started: 

  • Measure Your Space: Before purchasing, measure the area where you plan to hang the mirror to determine the optimal size.
  • Choose a Custom-Cut Mirror: You can find the perfect fit for your space by visiting our sister company, The Glass Warehouse, and creating your own bespoke frameless mirror.

Finding the Perfect Frame

The right frame can redefine your mirror's presence in a room. Consider these options to find your match:

  • DIY Frame Creation: Unleash your creativity by crafting a frame that reflects your personal style.
  • Purchasing New: Explore home decor stores for frames that align with current trends and designs.
  • Upcycling: Give new life to an old frame by refurbishing one you already own.
  • Second-Hand Treasures: Scour charity shops or online marketplaces for unique, pre-loved frames that tell a story. 

Attaching the Frame to Your Mirror

Two common methods can be employed to attach your chosen frame:

  • Using Metal Clips: Metal clips offer a secure hold and are relatively easy to install, but they may be visible and slightly detract from the mirror's seamless appearance.
  • Applying Adhesive: A strong, specialised adhesive can provide a clean look without visible hardware. Ensure that the adhesive is compatible with both the mirror and the frame material for a lasting bond.

Installation: Hanging Your Newly Framed Mirror

With your frame attached, the final step is to hang your mirror. Consider the wall material and the weight of the framed mirror when selecting the appropriate hanging hardware to ensure a safe and secure installation.
