How To Hang Frameless Oval Wall Mirrors
Hanging frameless oval wall mirrors is a bit different than if the mirror you purchased has a frame around it. It is still fairly simple to hang the mirror, almost simpler than hanging a framed mirror because you don’t necessarily have to find the studs inside of the wall. However, to make sure that the installation is secure, you are going to want to consider taking the time to locate the studs in the wall to attach the mirror clips to.
By following the basic steps that we have outlined below, you can install the mirror and begin enjoying its benefits fairly quickly.
Step #1) Mark The Location
Before you start installing the mirror, you are going to want to determine exactly where it is going to be installed in your home. To avoid any problems later down the line, you will want to make sure that you do not install the mirror too close to any doors in your home. The opening and shutting of the doors can loosen the fasteners on the mirror, allowing it to fall. If you want to get good lines, might be worth using a laser measure/ pointer.back to menu ↑
