Frameless Mirror FAQs
Many people assume that the frame makes the mirror – but this isn’t necessarily true. A frameless mirror can speak for itself and become a stand-out feature on its own merit for many reasons.
Some of the various benefits of frameless mirrors include:
Simple look – Sleek, clean, and uncluttered; no frame means the mirror can blend in with its surroundings better and won’t overwhelm the space, no matter how large it may be.
Versatile – While different shapes and colours are available, the relative simplicity of a frameless reflective surface allows these mirrors to match with pretty much any design scheme.
Space-saving – The lack of frame means more of the mirror face is exposed in the same amount of space, reflecting more light while being compact without a frame sticking out from the wall.
Their universality makes frameless mirrors from Express Glass Warehouse an extremely practical choice, so don’t miss out on the perfect solution to elevate your living or working space.
The mirror shapes you can choose from depend on whether you want a freestanding frameless mirror or a frameless wall mirror. It will need a straight bottom edge if you plan to use it as a floor mirror and simply lean it against the wall, but you’ll have more freedom in selecting a different mirror shape if you intend to mount it on the wall.
Traditional mirror shapes include square and rectangular, which can be hung on the wall, used as leaning mirrors, or cover a section of wall completely to create a mirror wall. Smaller square or rectangle mirrors also offer the flexibility of being able to add a frame later if you choose.
While you can opt for an arched mirror with a rounded top to give a floor mirror a window-like appearance, if you want a curved or round mirror, then it will need to be wall-mounted. Round mirrors are ideal for positioning above sinks or above dressing tables, creating a self-contained area of reflection.
However, if you would prefer a mirror that doubles as a sculpture-inspired piece of wall art, why not consider a pebble-shaped mirror with asymmetrical edges, or a pond mirror that looks like a puddle on your wall? Wavy mirrors are a massive trend for adding a whimsical touch to modern spaces.
Whichever shape you choose, your frameless mirror is sure to look fantastic wherever you install it.
The right size frameless mirror depends on which style you want to buy and where you intend to position it. You may not need to account for frame space, but you do still need to measure the area a few times to get accurate measurements you can work with.
Take a look through our selection of frameless mirrors to choose the styles you like the most, then check the product pages for specific details about the dimensions available. Compare them to the measurements you have, and to be extra sure, try making a template out of paper to see how well the size and shape would fit into the space.
Remember that large mirrors are the better choice for blending in with their surroundings, while smaller mirrors with more distinct edges are best for accent pieces. If you’re installing the mirror to complement another piece of furniture, make sure it’s not wider, as it will look too big for the space.
Each type of mirror we supply comes in a selection of pre-set sizes, but if none of these work for you, feel free to get in touch to discuss a bespoke frameless mirror order from Express Glass Warehouse.
