How Mirrors are Made?

The method of making mirrors is very simple. Mirrors are made by applying a reflective coating to a glass sheets. Glass is a major mirror component due to its transparency, ease to fabrication, rigidity, hardness, and ability to take a smooth finish but it is not very good material for reflection. Materials which are commonly used are metal coatings such as silver, gold or chrome. Present-day glass mirrors are most often coated with non-toxic silver or aluminum.
It is very important that the glass is polished to perfection, any dip or impurity left on glass would made waves in the mirror, which would cause distortion of the image reflected.
Mirrors have to be specially designed in order to become effective, and the glass sheets that are used must be flat and durable. For household use, the thickness of the mirror is very important, with its strength increasing proportionately to its thickness. For heavy-duty mirrors and mirrors used in scientific research, the surface needs to be designed in particular way to retain uniformity while adding a curvature. This process gives the mirror the ability to focus as well as reflect light. The kind of coating to be used is specified by the mirror design. Durability and reflectivity are the most important characteristics in the choice of the coating.
An important part of the manufacturing process is the quality control of mirrors. Inspection of the mirror's surface is generally performed using the naked eye or a microscope in order to check if there are any scratches or unevenness.

The Benefits of Adding Bathroom Mirrors to Counters and Cupboards

Bathroom mirrors may be the most important aspect to a bathroom for reasons that everything to do with how you want to see yourself. While size and placement of a mirror will determine that, what about the psychological impact of having mirrors in more than just on bathroom walls? 
Not everyone is fortunate enough to own a bathroom that could be designated an alternate living room.
You may be one who lives in a smaller house or apartment who feels claustrophobic in your tiny bathroom.

Yes, some bathrooms can be so small that you can barely turn around in them. But have you ever thought about what it would look like in there if you placed mirrors on your countertops or bathroom cupboards? It's a custom idea that we can do for you here at ANTIQUE MIRRORS NYC . While we provide many different items made of glass, we're always designing custom projects for our clients to help give them the psychological feel of more space.

The Illusion of More Space in a Small Bathroom

While some may merely hang mirrors on all four walls of their bathrooms to make the space look bigger, adding mirrors to your cupboard doors can add more stylization that's different from the ordinary. The reason is because it reflects light at different angles, hence making it easier to light up the area. Plus, with decorative possibilities on the cupboard doors, you can customize the mirrors with different designs to make it look more artful. This can include etched glass, something we do often.

When it comes to mirrors on your bathroom countertops, you can bring the same oblique angle function of reflecting light. You also give the illusion of more depth on those counter spaces by reflecting the ceiling.

If you have the mirrors aimed toward a window bringing in natural light, a stubbornly dark bathroom can suddenly turn into a bright and cheerful area.

Contact us here at ANTIQUE MIRRORS NYC so we can work with you on customized mirrors for your bathroom.
Since many people spend as much time in the bathroom as they do their kitchen, we want you to make your bathroom (or any room in your house) feel more vibrant with the power of glass and mirrors.
