Let Your Home Reflect You: DIY Mirror Frames

Whether you’re looking to add character to an existing mirror in your Kansas City home, or you’re looking for a mirror to fit a great frame, it’s a lot easier than you think. Janssen Glass has a few do-it-yourself project ideas that can add a great deal of personality to your home.

DIY Mirror Frame Custom MirrorFrame Your Bathroom’s Builder Basic Mirror

A bathroom should be a place of retreat in your home. A place where you can let go of the rest of the world, and focus on yourself. But everyone likes to relax differently. Make your bathroom reflect your personality by adding your own frame to a mirror. This simple trick can bring so much personality and elegance to the room. You can use something as simple as a baseboard to achieve this timeless look. Try painting it any color to match the rest of the room, or trim down the width if you prefer a smaller frame. If you like the idea of this project, but don’t already have a mirror to frame, Janssen Glass can create a custom piece to fit any part of your home. For more on how to get started, read this blog post about our custom design process.From Antique to Modern: Mesh Old With New

Have any old picture frames lying around, but don’t know what to do with them? Why not use them to frame a mirror that can hang in virtually any room in your home. To play with the style, paint the frame to match your room’s décor, or distress the frame to add an air of old elegance to new style. A framed mirror looks just as stylish as a piece of hanging art. Hanging mirrors are also a great way to bring more light into a dark room, or to make a small room feel bigger. Janssen Glass has all types of mirror sizes and styles to choose from that are sure to fit in your DIY frame. And if for some reason we don’t, we can make a custom fit mirror for your frame.
