Creating a Mirror Tile Feature Wall

 A wall of mirror tiles can give the illusion of space and brighten any room in the house. Mirror tiles can be made from traditional silver mirror, tinted mirror or a variety of antique finishes. To create the mirrored wall, first measure the wall that the tiles are to cover and then calculate how many tiles are required. Mirror tiles can be made to measure to ensure all the tiles are of an equal size to fill the space and give a uniform finish. 

 

To fit the mirror tiles;

 

  • Clean the wall where the mirrors are going to be placed using a soap solution
  • Arrange the tiles on a flat surface in desired pattern, measure length and width and transfer measurements to the wall with a pencil
  • Use a spirit level to check the lines are straight
  • Use a temporary support underneath the bottom row of mirrors if they are not resting on the skirting board
  • Apply mirror adhesive to the back of the mirror in spaced stripes, staying within an inch of the edge of the mirror to prevent the adhesive seaping out when pressed to the wall
  • Starting from the bottom, firmly press the mirror tile to the wall, keep the support in place for 24 hours until the adhesive has completely cured
  • Remove any excess adhesive from the front of the mirror with a damp cloth

  •  Hello I recently bought 2 mirrors off of yourself, I'm really pleased with both the price and product, you were by far the cheapest quote from many other glass companies and the delivery was brilliant, the mirrors were used on a bespoke wardrobe install I have just completed for a client of mine, here's a couple of pictures of the finished product..
  • I would like to say that the whole experience in buying from you guys was easy, uncomplicated and very fast. The Gym mirrors are great and very easy to install, delivery driver was very good, obviously knew how to handle the glass carefully and was very helpful, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending yourselves to others.
  • I bought two pieces of glass as shelf tops. They were 'low ion' glass which is crystal clear. They were both cut extremely well and fitted perfectly. The communications with the vendor were fantastic - very very helpful. The delivery cost was a little pricey for small items, although glass clearly needs to be sent safely. Despite that, I would definitely use again.
