Framing a bathroom mirror not only protects and hides mirror edges, it adds decorative interest to both mirror and bathroom.
You can choose to frame in stained wood in your choice of colour, as well as a variety of other materials. Everything you need to frame a bathroom mirror you will find at your local Builders Warehouse.You will find instructions on how to frame a bathroom mirror here.
If you don't want to go to bold in a light coloured bathroom, a white frame can match the bathroom counters and bath. You can use a variety of moldings and trim in pine, SupaWood or extruded polystyrene to design a unique frame for your bathroom.
Tip: If you are a bit more adventurous, you can always paint the frame a bold, bright colour. This will make the mirror the centre of the room and help make it pop.
No More Nails adhesive has a lot of tack, which means it sticks immediately to the surface. If the pieces need to be held in place until the glues dries, use masking tape.
Extruded polystyrene crown molding is perfect as a mirror frame. Be sure to choose extruded polystyrene, as this is a much harder and denser product than standard polystyrene conice.
The advantages of using this product are that it is lightweight and can be spray painted. Click here to find out how to create a vintage mirror frame using polystyrene crown moulding. You can fill in any gaps in the moldings with Alcolin white wood filler.
Tip: Remember to sand down any wood you decide to use. Paint it, and then if you wish, varnish it to give it a smooth finish.
Framing a bathroom mirror can completely change the look and feel of a bathroom, and it doesn’t have to be a difficult and expensive task.
