Mirrors – lovely, bright and sparkling, mirrors ad a touch of elegance to any room. besides making a room look bigger, mirrors add brightness and a fresh clean look to a space.

Adding a framed mirror near the front entrance, or incorporating a vintage mirror into a gallery wall are a few great options for fitting mirrors into your home decor, outside of the bedroom and bathroom.

Since we do custom mirrors in Calgary, we’ve done a few projects that go beyond the conventional bathroom mirror. Here are some of our favourites.
