Suggested reads about Mirror Hanging

What does a mirror installation service include?

Your mirror hanging service includes all the steps needed to get your mirror off the ground and safely mounted on the wall. Some of the most commonly requested mirror installations include:

Mirror wall mounting

Your installer will first check the weight of your mirror to choose a suitable hanging solution. They’ll also assess your walls to see how much weight they can support. Depending on the result, they’ll either choose hooks, cleats or adhesive to hang your mirror. Your installer will also confirm the best location for your mirror based on eye height, the room layout, studs, and wall space. They’ll mark the spot with a pencil. 

If they’re hanging the mirror using hooks connected to the mirror’s D-ring or wire, they’ll measure the spot where the hook needs to go in order to achieve the appropriate height. Then they’ll use a drill to attach the hook(s) to the wall. Your mirror installer may choose to add a wall anchor if your mirror is reasonably heavy and they’re unable to screw into a stud. Finally, they’ll hang the mirror and clean the surface to remove fingerprints.

Bathroom mirror installation

The first step of bathroom mirror hanging is to prep the surface by wiping the wall down and removing dirt and dust. Next, your installer will measure and mark out the position of the new mirror, ensuring the edges match up with the splash-backs and/or the mirror sits centrally above the vanity. Then they’ll attach the double-sided adhesive tape to the back of the mirror, before removing the backing and pushing the mirror onto the wall so that it lines up with the markings. Finally, your bathroom mirror will be finished off with silicone around the edges to help strengthen the bond to your wall.

Heavy mirror hanging

Hanging heavy mirrors involves some extra care to ensure the wall and fixings are strong enough to hold up over time. Aside from looking for appropriately rated hooks and wire, the biggest difference involves using a stud finder to mark out the location of any studs. From there, your mirror installer will choose a suitable spot for your mirror that has good access to a stud. They’ll ensure the screws securing your hooks to the wall go straight into the studs. Then they’ll hang your mirror, ensuring the wire slips over the hook and adjusting your mirror to straighten it.

Magnifying mirror wall mounting

Wall-mounted magnifying mirrors are popular for bathrooms and powder stations for shaving and makeup. Fortunately, these mirrors are relatively simple to install. Your handyman will mark out the height and find the nearest stud. They’ll drill holes and screw in the mirror’s mounting plate.
