Mirrors & Glass

All forms of mirrors and glass can be designed to look decorative, including windshields of automobiles. If you are in the market to buy a clear glass shower door, a glass table top, or some decorative mirror to hang on your wall, then these are a few questions you should consider asking any retailer before purchasing your mirror or glass products.

  • Can glass tiles be safely installed in the part of my house I want them?
    Glass tiles are difficult to install without cracking or installing and, even worse, are not suitable for certain places. Areas that are high risk such as a kitchen or shower wall might need to be avoided if it’s a small space. The small square tiles should almost definitely not be placed on the floor as constant pressure on them would cause them to break.

  • Is there any way to protect my beveled glass?
    This is tough since beveled glass is usually cut in an artistic fashion, there is no real way to frame them. For some of the oval or round ones, custom frames can be manufactured.

  • Do you have large shower doors?
    Sometimes the shower head is placed high up and can wet the bathroom floor as a result. The solution to protecting your bathroom is to get a full length shower door which at least comes up to the base of the shower head.

  • Do you install your products?
    Most warehouses offer installation services while wholesalers usually don’t. From hanging regular vanity and antique mirrors, to auto glass, to one way mirrors, usually whoever you order it from will have someone available to install it.

    Glass and mirror manufacturing comprise potentially intertwined industries. The practice of glassblowing goes back to an early point in history. People interested in this line of work may acquire the necessary skills at a trade school, or apprenticing for a practitioner. In addition to allowing people to realize the functional or artistic properties of uniquely clear materials, glass also furnishes a base for the creation of mirrors.

    The actual creators of mirrors or glass typically do not sell their products directly to consumers seeking items for living, work and transportation-related spaces like bathrooms and automobiles, but instead to intermediaries.

    Merchants who sell mirrors and glass for use on a wholesale or retail basis may sell these items as they are, or according to custom specifications. One such category comprises decorative mirror frames. Options include square, oval and round mirrors. Glass, meanwhile, can be created in a beveled form. The glass used in a bathroom's shower door, for one, might take this approach. Shower doors can also, however, be clear. By contrast, glass tiles might conceivably appear in a public space's flooring or walls.

    The mirror or glass which businesses manufacture or sell should accord with the full range of customer preferences. At one end, people typically buy large, full length items. Extending up from the floor, these can be placed in a wall or door. Unusually small mirrors, meanwhile, include the vanity category, used for cosmetic reasons. The websites or print catalogs of manufacturers and merchants can give tips on additional varieties, including antique mirrors to hang on walls, and one way mirror installed for covert observation. Table top glass, meanwhile, can function protectively, just as it does in automobiles. People acquainted with any professional involved in this field, from manufacturing to retail, might look into the customizing option.
