Reasons To Replace A Mirror

Like many of the other glass products you’ll use in everyday life, your mirrors aren’t meant to last forever. Usually, the main reason to replace a mirror is it being broken or cracked. But, did you know that there are early warning signs that you should notice before it gets to that point? Catching a faulty mirror before the cracks happen will save you a lot of hassle in the long run. So, how can you recognize the signs of needing to replace a mirror? We break it down for you below!

Your Surroundings Look Distorted

As glass continues to age, you’ll start to see subtle signs of warping in it. It will make certain things in your surroundings look bigger – or smaller! – than they appear outside of it. You may notice that you start to look skinnier or fatter in the mirror than you actually are. If you’ve started to notice this in your mirror, it’s a sign that the wear and tear it experiences is starting to catch up with it. Get that mirror replaced before it becomes a safety hazard later down the road!

Dark Spots

Dark spots in your mirror can be another telling sign of wear and tear on your mirror. In many cases, these are caused by improper cleaning. You’ll usually see these on the edges of your mirror, and depending on how big they are, could pose a threat to the room it’s in. Most mirrors are made with a layer of metal that helps protect their structural integrity. As this integrity fades, the metal sheet will start to become more noticeable through these dark spots. If you start to see a lot of them, it’s a sign that your mirror should be headed out the door.

The Mirror Is Outdated

Interior design is important, too! If you’ve recently done renovations on your home, you may notice that your current mirror doesn’t match the renovated design. For example, if you’ve been doing renovations on your bathroom to make it modern, your mirror shouldn’t be a vintage one! If you’re looking to sell your home in the coming months, the interior design will help sell your property. Make sure your mirror matches the rest of your room for the highest chances of success.
