A mirror is never just a mirror, especially when that mirror is a piece of art. A mirror is a beautiful piece of decor that can change your home and your life. By choosing to have a mirror designed just for you, you are performing a straightforward and elegant home improvement, but also commissioning something that could be in your family for generations if you take care of it. A mirror is much more than a piece of glass as you will see by these 5 examples of how custom mirrors will change the way you see your home. 


Of course, one of the main benefits of a mirror is being a functional piece of art. A beautiful mirror can do so much for a room and, often, becomes the centerpiece of the wall whether that was the original intent. A handcrafted mirror has an added elegance to it that makes it stand out a piece of art and not just a reflective surface. Imagine a mirror as a painting, but with the intriguing feature of the picture never quite being the same.

Make a Room Bigger

One of the biggest reasons why designers love mirrors so much is a mirror can instantly change the size of a room. Not literally, but the reflection given off by a mirror can make even the tiniest room feel spacious. A custom mirror can take it one step further by being designed in the perfect size and shape to make a room look as large as possible.

Make a Room Brighter

A mirror can make a room look bigger and brighter.  By reflecting natural light, the mirror glass makes for a winning situation; it doesn’t just make the room look nicer and brighter, it also saves electricity. Custom mirrors can channel the amount of light that gets reflected through size and shape similarly to their function reflecting room size.

Monitor the House

Mirrors are a security device in stores, so it is no surprise that home security is one of their many uses. The idea that they would prevent a burglary is a little far-fetched, but you could use a custom mirror to see what is going on outside of your house or by the front door. A mirror could even extend the reach of a surveillance system by allowing you to see around a corner with a fixed camera. They will also enable you to keep an eye on your kids without having to stand right next to them. Having some mirrors that perfectly placed will give you multiple vantage points to the most important areas of your home. 

Admire Yourself

This one should go without saying. The real reason for any mirror is to admire your reflection.  A custom mirror will allow you to have a piece of art in your bedroom or dressing room, but still allow it to function as a place to check your wardrobe. Another benefit of a real custom mirror is that you know the reflection you see is a true reflection and not some fun-house reflection from a dime-store mirror. 

There are so many reasons why a custom mirror is a great idea for your home and family. They have more benefits than you could fit in one article and the funny thing is that some of them you won’t even realize until you have the mirror in your house.
