What Is the Best Quality Mirror?

What Is The Best Quality Mirror?

If you’re looking for the best quality mirror to spruce up your home, focus on selecting one that is functional, stylish, and built to last.  

We’ve rounded up some of the very best mirror options to make your search easier. Continue reading to learn more about these selections and which would be the perfect addition to your home.

Silvered Mirrors

Silvered mirrors are very common and are a basic option for a standard mirror. They’re designed via tempered or annealed glass, which is brushed on a conveyor belt during manufacturing. During the tin chloride solution, silver is deposited, which is what gives mirrors that silver hue. Silvered mirror glass is used on virtually all residential mirrors and others including convex, dental, one-way, two-way, rearview mirrors, and more.

Antiqued Mirrors

At Murray Glass, we offer antiqued mirrors that feature tints and coatings to give an aged look. Although they’re designed to look old, their quality is unmatched. These mirrors have various uses and can transform a room instantly.

Concave Mirrors

Concave mirrors curve inward to create bigger reflections. These mirrors are typically found in bathrooms or over bedroom vanities because they greatly improve hair, makeup, and shaving routines. The enlarged facial image can be very beneficial when getting ready for the day.

Convex Mirrors

Convex mirrors also have a spherical shape but in the opposite manner of concave mirrors. These mirrors bulge out and make the reflected image smaller. These make great decorative pieces and are suitable in spaces like garages to help see oncoming traffic around corners.

Laminated Mirrors

If you’re looking for the best quality mirror, laminated is an excellent option as they are designed for ultimate durability. They are created by pressing two pieces of glass together with a layer of PVC in between. This makes the glass stronger and more resistant to shattering.

Safety-Backed Mirrors

If you have children, live in an earthquake-prone area, or have any other reason to worry about your mirror falling off the wall, safety-backed mirrors are the way to go. Safety backing is an adhesive film that adheres to the back of the mirror for extra durability. It also helps prevent glass scattering in the event of accidental breakage.

Pyrolytic Mirrors

Water can pose a problem with silvered mirrors, so that is where pyrolytic comes in. These mirrors are a smart choice for shower doors or anywhere else where moisture could be a problem. They’re coated with a reflective glass material making them highly reflective glass products.
