We offer quality, custom mirror glass that has been given the “aged” appearance of an old mirror. An antique mirror is the perfect piece for certain interior designs. For example, furniture style vanities are trending, and some home decorators choose to re-purpose vintage dressers, desks, or tables and convert them into bathroom vanities. This gives the sink area a great deal of charm and personality, and you can continue the effect by hanging an “antique” mirror above your antique vanity. Antique mirrors also make lovely wall ornaments and can be used to add character and visual interest to just about any space.
When you order an antique mirror from ABC, you can count on great service throughout the project.
We are happy to visit your home for a free mirror consultation, and our glazier will also take precise measurements and carefully inspect the relevant wall space. Your antique mirror will be fabricated to fit correctly in your space and then carefully installed by glass professionals. Our team is committed to your satisfaction with the finished product, so give us a call today at 703-257-7150!
In addition to the many standard mirrors we offer, ABC brings you antique-style mirrors so that you don’t have to scour flea markets and antique shops in order to find a mirror that harmonizes with your room’s décor. Whether you’re creating a lived-in, “layered” look or decorating your space with heirloom furniture, we can offer you new mirror glass with an aged appearance. To achieve this, acid is applied to the back of the mirror and then washed off after it has eaten away only a little bit of the reflective paint. A protective coating is then applied to the back of the “antique” mirror, and it is ready for use.
Like our other mirrors, antique mirrors are customizable.
If you need a unique shape or a non-standard size, this is not a problem for ABC Glass and Mirror. Our team will fabricate your antique mirrors to the appropriate height and width for your project. In addition, we can ensure that your mirror will fit correctly by fine-tuning the dimensions to compensate for minor structural flaws such as corners that are out of square. Moreover, even our antique mirrors can be enhanced with custom cut-outs to accommodate light switches, outlets, and so on.
Along with personalized mirror dimensions, we offer a variety of appealing options for your antique mirror:
- Frame – You can select from a lovely assortment of mirror frames, including classic and vintage styles that would pair perfectly with an “aged” mirror.
- Bevel – For a more subtle border, we can do a beveled edge around the exterior edges of your antique mirror glass.
- Polished Edge – To emphasize simplicity and clean lines, we can keep the surface of the mirror completely level and just machine polish the edges.
Antique mirror glass can be used in just about any space.
In eclectic décor it can be utilized to balance and soften modern, industrial-style elements, or it can complement authentic antique furnishings. Great ways to include antique mirrors in your interior design include:
- A framed mirror above a fireplace mantle.
- A vanity mirror for an old-fashioned pedestal sink.
- On the wall behind an antique dresser or make-up table.
- In a vintage china hutch.
