Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a MirrorChic frame on my oval mirror? 2017-04-24T18:08:44+00:00

Sorry, but currently MirrorChic does not offer frames for oval mirrors.

If I decide to remodel my bathroom at a later date, can I remove the frame? 2017-04-24T18:08:04+00:00

Removing a MirrorChic frame is not difficult if you want to remodel. Using fishing line or dental floss, you can separate the frame from the mirror, and then use a product like Goo Gone® or Goof-Off® to remove the tape residue from the mirror and frame. If you want to reuse your MirrorChic frame, contact our customer service and we can send you replacement double-sided tape and alignment corners for re-installation.

How do I know if I need replacement clips? 2017-04-24T18:06:58+00:00

You may not need to replace the clips on your mirror (if you even have them). Any clips smaller than 1 inch in length & less than 1/4 inch thick, should not need to be replaced. If your current clips are larger than this, do not despair, replacing them is easy to do and the replacement clips are free.

What are channels & clips? 2017-07-31T11:05:25+00:00

Channels & clips are sometimes used to hold a mirror to the wall, but not always. In most situations, bathroom mirrors are glued to the wall.  A channel is a piece of metal that runs along the bottom of your mirror to support it. Clips would also be used along the top & possibly the sides in conjunction with a channel for optimal support. Clips come in many sizes/styles and not all are acceptable to put a frame over, but they can be easily replaced with our free MirrorChic replacement clips.

Our frames install over the channel and mirror clips (as long as they have a low enough profile).

Do MirrorChic frames work on medicine cabinets? 2017-04-24T17:47:33+00:00

It might be possible to add a MirrorChic frame to a medicine cabinet. However, this would be on a case-by-case situation. Take a few pictures of your medicine cabinet, email them to our customer service along with your contact info, and we will call you to discuss options.

Why not just replace my mirror with a completely new framed mirror? 2017-04-24T17:46:25+00:00

MirrorChic frames are made to fit over your existing mirror, saving you the hassle and cost of removing your existing mirror, which may be glued to the wall. Removing your existing mirror could result in damage to the wall, not to mention the time & expense of having it done. MirrorChic frames are simple and require no special tools or skills to install. MirrorChic frames also come in a variety of frame styles not currently available as an over-the-counter complete framed mirror.

Can you match the color of my cabinets? 2017-04-24T17:16:14+00:00

MirrorChic cannot match the exact color of your cabinets, but to find the best fit we suggest that you order samples of your favorite styles & colors to aid you in making the best choice. Or you can check out our “How to Pain a Frame” blog post to pick a frame that you can paint yourself!

Do you have a wholesale or commercial program? 2017-04-24T17:14:56+00:00

Yes, we do. Please contact our Customer Service to discuss your needs and we can quote your job.

I am not sure which frame I like best, can I order samples? 2017-04-24T17:14:24+00:00

Of course you can! If fact, we encourage you to order samples. Computer monitors are like TV’s in that each one will have a different color hue for the same picture. The frames color you see on your computer monitor may not match the actual product. By ordering a sample you can see the actual product color and style which will enable you to choose the best frame for your situation.

Do you sell mirrors too? 2017-06-16T16:05:48+00:00

Yes, but only for local customers in San Diego, Temecula, Murrieta, & S. Orange County.

My mirror rests on the backsplash, is that a problem? 2017-04-24T17:12:23+00:00

Resting on the backsplash is not a problem for MirrorChic frames, just be sure to let us know when you order.

How do MirrorChic frames attach to my mirror? 2017-04-24T17:11:04+00:00

MirrorChic frames come backed with double-sided professional grade adhesive tape. Once the backing is removed it will adhere your new frame directly to your mirror.

What are MirrorChic frames made from? 2017-04-24T17:09:56+00:00

Most MirrorChic frames are made of either solid wood or MDF (medium density fiberboard).  A few of our frames are made of a high density Polystyrene material. All of our frames offer quality and longevity.   You can be sure that whatever your choice, it will look beautiful on your mirror and last for many years if properly cared for.

Will the mirrors edge be visible after the frame is installed? 2017-04-24T17:08:58+00:00

Once our frame is installed, the edge of the mirror will not be visible. Our typical frames have a 3/8 inch overhang on all sides for a cleaner and more refined look. If you have zero clearance on a side, the frame will be flush with that edge of the mirror.

I have large plastic clips holding my mirror in place. Can I still put a frame around it? 2017-04-24T17:07:59+00:00

Large clips are generally not a problem; just let us know when ordering and we will send you replacement metal clips at no charge.

My mirror has beveled edges, can I still use a MirrorChic frame on it? 2017-04-24T17:06:51+00:00

As long as the bevel on your mirror is less than 1″ wide, our frames will work. There must be a flat, un-beveled part of the mirror in order for the frame to adhere properly. Because your new frame will adhere to your mirror, you will lose the bevel, but gain style and elegance. If you have a bevel please avoid frames less than 3″ in width. Please inform us on your order when your mirror is beveled.

What is splicing? 2017-07-03T15:18:33+00:00

Splicing is what we do when a frame is longer than our available frame material. Usually splicing is done on frames over 104” in length. We splice two pieces together to reach the length needed. Sometimes splicing a frame is needed in order to ship them since shipping a frame over 100” in length can be more than the cost of the frame itself.

I have a very large mirror. Will a MirrorChic frame fit? 2017-04-24T17:04:56+00:00

Every order is custom cut to the specifications you require. We consider any size up to 102 inches in length to be a standard size. Mirrors exceeding 102 inches in length may require splicing to cover the full length, but this is possible for most frames. Additional charges on large frames for splicing & shipping may apply. We suggest that you contact our customer support to discuss your large frame needs.

Do I need special tools or anything else to install a MirrorChic frame to my mirror? 2017-04-24T17:03:26+00:00

MirrorChic frames are easy to assemble and without special tools. The only tools needed are a hammer, level (optional), and some rags. Everything else will be supplied.

Can I put a frame on my mirror if it sits on the backsplash or is tight against a corner? 2017-04-24T17:01:51+00:00

Yes, you can! All our frames are custom cut and will mount directly onto the face of your mirror so that extra space around your mirror is not needed.
