When many people choose a mirror it is the mirror size which is their first consideration. This is then closely followed by the mirror design and then the mirror’s practicality. There is one thing however which many people don’t consider to be important which can make a real difference to how a mirror looks - whether the glass in the mirror is plain or bevelled. The trend for contemporary mirrors has all but eliminated the use of bevelled glass in mirror design. Plain glass is easier to fit and can be cut to many sizes quite easily, whereas bevelled glass has to be manufactured in the exact size to fit the mirror- consequentially it is often more expensive. Because of this you’ll often find that bevelled glass mirrors are a little more expensive than their plain glass counterparts, so what do you get for this difference in price? Bevelled glass mirrors highlight both the mirror and the frame and are generally better quality than plain glass mirrors. Because the mirror features a bevel you’ll often find that the glass used in a bevelled glass mirror is also thicker, adding to the weight of the mirror. Mirror choice is a personal preference, but if you want something which highlights the mirror surround and harks of true quality, why not take a look at bevelled mirrors, you might be surprised at what you find.
