We all want the bathroom of our dreams, and one of the easiest ways to get closer to that dream is to upgrade your plain, boring builder mirrors with decorative mirror molding. This quick project is easy to do and cheap compared to many bathroom upgrades.
Hit shows from HGTV like Property Brothers, Love It or List It, and Flip or Flop all have used this trick to upgrade a bathroom they were working on.
The first question is what molding to use!
The Difference between Crown Molding and Custom Pre-Cut Mirror Frame Kits
If you shop around, you’ll find that you basically have two options for framing an existing mirror. The first option is traditional crown molding that is normally used as a decorative piece to hide the corner between wall and ceiling.
Our mirror frame molding products on the other hand are designed specifically for adding a decorative frame to a bland mirror.
The cost between the two products can be very similar, but where our mirror molding really shines is the ease of installation.
If you’re using crown molding to frame your mirror, you will need to measure your mirror and make the precise cuts on your wood to line them up properly. From there, you’ll need a combination of clamps, glue or double-sided tape, and some patience to line up the frame perfectly on the mirror. This process requires you to have the right tools and know-how and takes much longer to accomplish.
When you order from us, your custom pre-cut mirror frame will arrive to perfectly match the measurements you sent us. We also supply everything you need to assemble and install your new frame as well as our installation instructions. This allows you to install your frame in less than an hour. Quick and easy!
