Mirror Hanging Options

Did you recently purchase a custom mirror? Not sure how to hang it? 

Is your mirror currently resting on the counter in your bathroom? 

Hanging a mirror properly ensures it doesn’t fall and keeps it from potential water damage when left to sit on a bathroom vanity.

Here are a few methods to hang your mirror: 

Clear Block and Glue – This is the most straightforward and affordable way to install your mirror.  It requires a solid, level surface on which the mirror can rest; for bathroom remodels, this is commonly
the backsplash on the vanity.  Small clear blocks are used to cushion and provide separation between the mirror and the backsplash.  The backsplash supports the weight of the mirror and the mirror glue holds the mirror against the wall.  

Hang Its – A “Hang It” is a special metal bracket that is attached to the back of a mirror and allows the mirror to hang like a picture frame.  This product secures the mirror to the wall without any additional metal clips or frame around the edges of the mirror.  For mirrors that have bevels or other edge treatments, this avoids having the mirror hardware interrupt the edge treatment.

Wood frame - A mirror can be secured within a wooden frame or structure similar to a picture frame.  As with all the previous methods, the weight of the mirror has to be supported by more than mirror glue.

Mirror glue and mastic are adhesives specifically formulated for use with mirrors.  Other generic or general-purpose construction adhesives may secure the mirror to the wall, but the chemicals in those adhesives will eat away at the mirror backing over time.  Eventually, you will have black spots across your mirror wherever you used this adhesive.  Always use a mirror-specific glue/mastic.

If the mirror is in a space with a higher risk of impact or breakage, like a fitness room, you might want to use a product called safety backing; Safety backing is a special tape that is applied to the back of the mirror that will hold the mirror intact if it gets damaged.
