How To Measure Your Mirror Frame Worksheet
Print and use this Pre-Order Measurement Form to help you properly measure your mirror.
First, on your sheet, let’s write down the name of each bathroom location where you would like to order a frame for.
If you have more than 3 bathrooms, print out another sheet before you begin.
For the following steps, you will want to answer every question per bathroom before going to the next bathroom. Example: Finish all of the questions pertaining to Frame #1 before answering any questions for Frame #2 or Frame #3, etc..
Measure the width of your mirror from side to side. Enter the dimension as close to 1/8” increments as possible, rounding UP to the nearest 1/8”. Measure at least twice, once across the top, then across the bottom, writing down the largest measurement of the two.
Measure the height of your mirror, be sure to measure to the top of any clips you may have along the top (and possibly the bottom) of your mirror. Make sure to include the metal frame in your measurement along the bottom of the mirror (if applicable).
Here, you will measure the distance of any objects that are located close to the mirror. Light Switches, receptacles, light fixtures, walls, backsplash, etc.. Again,
you will want to be within an 1/8” measurement. If there is no distance between the mirror and an item, enter 0, for objects more than ¾” away from the mirror,
put ¾” + in the space on the worksheet.
Do this for the Top, Left, Right & Bottom of the mirror. We will need to know ALL of these for a proper fit. Believe it or not, we have found that 95% of all bathroom walls are NOT entirely level and this measurement is crucial to a good fit.
Do you have clips holding your mirror to the wall? If so, we want to know how many and what type.
Low profile clips are not a problem, but any clip thicker than 1/13” will require additional attention.
Enter the location (Top, Left, Right, Bottom) and quantity of each clip holding your mirror in place.
If you do NOT have low profile clips, we will provide you with metal replacement clips that will continue to hold your mirror in place but also allow you to install a frame over them.
Do you have a metal channel across the bottom of your mirror? If no, skip this step.
If you DO have a metal channel, if at any point across the width of that channel you can put a nickel between the mirror and the edge of the metal channel we need to know.
We will route the bottom of your frame so that the channel will not keep the frame from adhering to the mirror properly.
Okay, you have reached the bottom of the form.. now on to the next bathroom and start at Step 1a again. When ALL bathrooms have been measured, you are now ready to order on-line.
