Here are some of the most common FAQ’s we get on how to frame a mirror with MirrorMate

Q: How does the frame go on the mirror?

A: MirrorMate frames come pre-taped with a professional-grade 3M tape. To install, the tape backing is removed and the frame is pressed directly onto the glass.

Q: Will the frames work for me if there is no clearance around my mirror? Or, if my mirror sits on the backsplash?

A: Yes. MirrorMate frames are designed to be used with most plate glass mirrors, whether or not there is clearance around it; or if the mirror sits on the backsplash.

Q: What is the frame made of?

A: Most MirrorMate frames are made of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard). This is a composite wood product made from wood pieces, particles or fibers bonded together with a resin. It is a strong and stable product used to make furniture, cabinets, shelving and molding. It is an eco-friendly product as some of the wood used to make MDF comes from wood dust when wood products are made or small trees that need to be thinned from forests grown for large tree logging. As a result, it does not require virgin wood for its production. 58 of the 65 frames are made in America.

Q: Why should I buy a MirrorMate frame instead of a complete framed mirror?

A: MirrorMate frames are less expensive than most new framed mirrors and they don’t require that you remove your existing mirror. This is especially good news if your existing mirrors are glued to the wall, since removing them may damage the wall, and if they break, may cause injury. The additional time and cost of repairing the wall, plus disposal of mirrors into a landfill make MirrorMate frames even more cost-effective. MirrorMate frames are easy to install, requiring no special tools or skills. They work with any rectangular-shaped mirror and are available in a variety of styles to fit any décor.
