Why Taking Care Of Your Bathroom Mirror Starts With Installation

No bathroom is complete without a good mirror. Whether you are shaving and want to make sure you haven’t missed anything, need to put on make-up, want to do something about an awkward pimple or check there is no shampoo still in your hair after a wash, it’s an essential visual aid.

For that reason, it’s important to ensure it is taken care of. But that is not just a matter of looking after what you have, but how it is fitted in the first place.

An obvious problem with a bathroom mirror is that it mists up. This is why a demister is a great device to have, to prevent condensation getting in the way of your morning facial inspection after a shower. We covered this in a blog last year.

However, mist is only a temporary annoyance that can slow things down, a big deal if you are in a hurry perhaps, but nothing compared to a mirror not being fitted firmly in place and then falling to the floor. This is why you should use heavy duty mirror fixings and make sure you know what to do when you are fixing a mirror in place.

There is a saying that breaking a mirror brings seven years bad luck, and while some may not be so superstitious about it, there is certainly nothing lucky about walking into a bathroom barefoot and finding out the hard way that there is glass on the floor.

At the same time, it is usually not a matter of luck that a mirror has come to grief if you haven’t taken the necessary steps to secure it.

Indeed, whether you are superstitious about these things or not, one thing you can be sure of is that if you use the right kind of fixtures for your mirror, you won’t need good fortune for it to still be there, undamaged, seven years hence.
