All vanity mirrors are measured by our crew to ensure a perfect fit. Not all mirror suppliers are created equal. Builders Glass has two crews that specialize in mirror installations. A mirror installation is not a job for a rookie! Our mirror installers are trained and experienced with the most custom and difficult mirrors.
The crew will measure the mirror to fit your walls. Unfortunately here in Southwest Florida the walls are never perfect. Our crew will measure your mirror to fit your wall. We call this a “tight fit” mirror. Make sure your mirror installation will be a “tight fit.” The other option is loose fit and it just does not compare. Loose fit mirrors are what you expect in a builder grade, new construction home.
During the tempting process our crew will measure for light fixtures and electrical outlets. For a floating light fixture over your vanity mirror, holes will need to be precisely measured and then drilled into the mirror. This is a great look and worth the extra effort!
Want to update your vanity mirror without replacing it? Now you can with our extensive line of frames designed to install directly on your existing mirror! You can find out more here.
A custom mirror installation can completely change the look of your bathroom. Mirror options are endless. For example the picture to the left shows an installation where the customer decided to replace the builder grade mirrors with a custom mirror that was installed “tight fit” to the ceiling. Mirrors installed to the full ceiling height help being your eye up and give an easy flow. When a mirror is too short your eye will stop there. Don’t make this mistake! Whenever possible install your mirror to the ceiling.
Holes can be cut for a floating light fixture. This gives your mirrors that high end custom look.
Have your light fixtures on hand when our crew comes to measure. Light fixtures typically require a 4″ holes, but we do see light fixtures and junction boxes that requires different size holes drilled into the mirror.
Custom cut mirrors with holes look the best when the light fixture is centered over your sink. Make sure your electrician places your back plate and wires exactly where you want it. This will save you form calling your electrician back to move wires.

Mirror Overlays- Beveled Mirror Strips or Antique Mirror
Are you looking for an even more custom mirror look? Decorators often add bevel strip framing to vanity mirrors to get that custom mirror look.
Add bevels to your vanity mirror to add a touch of elegance. Bevel strips can be cut and mitered to frame your mirror. Bevel strips can be installed on your new vanity mirrors or we can simply install them on your existing mirrors. Adding bevel strips can help hide any black edge your old mirrors might have. Bevel strips are available in 2″,3″, and 4″. Corner connectors and square connectors are also available for an additional cost. Current Design trends are going towards a wider bevel strip frame. Consider the standard 4″ or even a custom 5 ” or 6″ beveled frame.
Don’t need a new vanity mirror? Builders Glass can simply add bevel strips to your existing vanity. This is a popular technique used by many designers to give a custom mirror look .
