Many people think that everything is done after buying bathroom mirrors. It is necessary to know that attention should be paid to the step of installing bathroom mirrors. The installation of bathroom mirrors has a great influence on bathroom walls and the use and purchase. Let’s take a look at the precautions for the installation of bathroom mirrors.
1. Installation Height of Bathroom Mirror
People spend most of their time standing in the bathroom looking in the mirror, especially in mirrors for bathroom vanity. The bottom edge of the bathroom mirror should be at least 135 centimeters from the ground. If the height difference between family members is large, it can be adjusted up and down. Try to place the face in the middle of the mirror. In this way, the imaging effect is better. In general, it is better to keep the center of the mirror 160 to 165 centimeters from the ground.
2. Fixing Method of Bathroom Mirrors:
Measure the distance of the hook behind the mirror. Mark the wall. Perforate the mark. If it is a ceramic tile wall surface, you need to drill through the ceramic tile with a glass drill bit. Use a percussion drill or an electric hammer to hit about 3CM. After drilling the hole, put it in the plastic expansion pipe. Screw on a 3 cm self-tapping screw. Leave 0.5 cm outside. Then hang up the mirror.
3. Protect the Wall Surface When Punching
Be careful not to damage the wall surface during installation. Especially hanging mirrors on ceramic tile walls. Try to punch holes at material joints. The best way to drill holes is rhinestones.
4. Precautions of Fixing Method of Glass Glue
If glass glue is used to fix the mirror, be careful not to use acidic glass glue. Neutral glue should be selected. Acid glass glue reacts with the material on the back of the mirror. This will cause mottling of the mirror surface. Before applying glue, it is best to do a compatibility test to see if the glue is compatible with the material. The best effect is to use special mirror glue.
5. Installation of Bathroom Mirror Lamp
Bathroom mirrors need good lighting coordination. The headlights of the mirror or the lights on the side of the mirror are necessary. When installing mirror headlights, care should be taken to prevent glare. It is recommended to install lampshades or choose lamps with a frosted glass surface.
Mirror glass is usually cut by a glass knife before use. Water vapor easily enters the mirror surface from the cut side. It will corrode the mirror surface and produce mildew spots and rust spots. In the humid bathroom environment, how should the mirror be cleaned?
1. Mirror Cleaning
If the mirror surface is stained or not bright, you can spray glass cleaner on the mirror surface and wipe it with newspaper.
2. Mirror Anti-fog
Before bathing, soap can be smeared on the mirror surface and then wiped with a dry cloth. A soap film will form on the mirror surface. It can prevent mirror blur. Or dip a dry rag in a proper amount of detergent and smear it on the mirror surface. Astringent toner or detergent can be used. These methods can prevent water vapor from condensing on the mirror surface and can play a good anti-fog role.
3. Precautions of Daily Maintenance of Mirror Surface
Don’t touch the mirror with wet hands. Don’t wipe the mirror with a damp rag. Avoid increasing tidal inflow. The mirror surface should be wiped with a soft dry cloth or cotton to prevent the mirror surface from being wiped. Use a soft cloth or emery cloth, dip in some kerosene or wax to wipe. Or wipe the mirror and frame with a cloth dipped in milk to make it clear and bright.
4. Frame Cleaning and Maintenance
Use a soft cloth or feather duster to remove dust from the frame surface. Or gently wipe the frame surface with clean and soft wet cloth. Do not use any glass cleaner or other solvent to scrub the frame.
