Your bathroom is rather small, it does not have a window for natural light, and the tiny vanity mirror hanging over your pedestal sink just does not do anything for the space at all. You give some of the ceiling-height or rather large wall mirrors for bathrooms a look, and you decide that you can install one of these mirrors and make a drastic difference. Even though it may look like installing a mirror is a straightforward process, it can actually be a lot harder than you think. Take a look at some of the reasons to trust a professional for bathroom mirror installation instead of attempting a DIY installation.
These mirrors can be exceptionally heavy.
Mirrors are made of glass, which is already heavy in large sheets. However, mirrors also have other layers of backing and materials that make them especially heavy. You may have to have more than two people just to lift the mirror when you move it into the house, and getting it up on the wall can be a very tedious process because of the weight. Professionals are familiar with how heavy a mirror can be, so there is less of a chance it will get damaged due to an accidental drop because the mirror is too heavy.
Bathroom mirrors can be difficult to maneuver in a tight space.
If you are working in a small space and have to bring in a wall mirror, it can be super difficult to maneuver the large glass piece without damaging it in the process. It is not uncommon for professionals to actually remove some fixtures just so they have room to move around in the bathroom to get the mirror in place. For example, a vanity may have to be taken out temporarily or a sink may have to be repositioned until the work is completed.
Properly securing a bathroom mirror is best left to professionals.
You've seen those odd-looking clips that jut out on the edges of a wall mirror that screw in place and detract from the overall appearance of the mirror. Yes, those clips are easy enough to install to support a wall mirror, but there are options for mirror fastening that will be pretty much impossible to see. It is best to allow a professional bathroom mirror installation service install the mirror because they know all the best ways to attractively secure the piece to the wall.
