Sometimes the repair process in the house can lead us into confusion with the seemingly simplest tasks. Today, various methods are known, such as, for example, quickly and simply installing a windowsill or plastic doors with your own hands. However, now we will focus on mounting mirrors with different options, which any person who does not have special tools can handle. First, let's figure out which mirror we will deal with. If it is in the frame, then attaching it is not difficult, because, as a rule, special fasteners are included. If we are dealing with a frameless mirror, then we choose one of the following methods, which is most convenient for you.
Using special glue or sealant
This method is very popular and does not require a lot of time. All you need to do is select a special glue in the store with the speaking name “glue for mirrors” and perform some simple actions. We clean the back side of the mirror from dust, degrease it with alcohol or solvent. We distribute glue on it in the form of strips or dotted, in a checkerboard pattern. We press our canvas to the designated place. Please note that before installation, it is better to draw a line on the wall of the lower or side border of the mirror. So we can install it smoothly.
Using double-sided tape
This method is somewhat similar to the previous one. It is ideal for light and small mirrors. We are already familiar with the first stage. We start by cleaning the back of the dirt and degreasing. After waiting for complete drying, we paste the strips of the mounting tape so that they are vertically on the entire surface, indented by about 10 cm from each other.The final step will be to remove the protective layer from the glued pieces and install the mirror in the place chosen for it.
With the help of special fittings
Brackets, clamps, metal strips - you choose. After all, whatever you choose, the installation steps will be the same. First, mark the points where the fasteners will be at the installation site of our mirror. As a rule, choose two on the sides from the bottom and from the top. Next, we drill holes at the marked points where we insert the dowels. Please note that you need to drill a hole to a depth equal to the length of the dowel. There is very little left: on the screws we put on your chosen accessories and screw them into the dowels. We put a mirror in the prepared recesses. Voila, now your new interior item will delight you for a long time, thanks to such a secure mount. And if necessary, you can easily remove it if you want to change something in your usual environment.
