Mirror tiles will give your interior extra luxury and uniqueness. Mirror tiles can be made of a mirror of any color, and diamond edges around the perimeter of the tile will make any space shine. Any mirror surface visually ‘increases’ the space, which is very important for small bathrooms. The mirror tile is not difficult in installation, is eco-friendly and is perfectly combined with any finishing materials. In addition to traditional polishing the edges of the mirrors, facet on the mirror is in great demand. Facet is one of the mirror finishing methods, it can be 10-40mm wide. A facet will give the mirrors a finished, diamond-edged look and perfectly fit into the classic interior. You can order a mirror of any size with a facet at Giovani Glass.
The merits of mirror tiles.
Fixing reliability
Using modern adhesives and competent styling technology, you can be sure of the strength of fixing tiles on the wall.
Mirror tile looks expensive and stylish in any interior. Even with budget repair, it will look interesting. At the same time, its versatility allows mirror tiles to be perfectly combined with the traditionally luxurious wood and natural stone.

Variety of shapes, colors, and sizes.
Traditional tile has the shape of a square and a "silvery" shade of the surface. Giovani Glass make for you a tile of any size using the pattern you like.
The ability to visually expand the space.
Mirror visually ‘pulls’ the room. This advantage is particularly important when designing typical bathrooms, which, as a rule, are extremely small in size. A regular tile will enhance the impression of blank walls, and a mirror will help to eliminate the oppressive atmosphere of a closed room.
Low ceilings will ‘rise’ higher, especially if you use the effect of placing long tiles at the bottom of the wall and gradually shortening upwards.
Ability to eliminate room defects
Mirror tiles can successfully cover drawbacks of the room, and at the same time to be a fine element of decor. Thus, an absolutely unnecessary part of the room easily turns into a visual accent of the whole interior.

Composite structure
Due to the fact that the mirror panel consists of individual elements, this allows to increase its durability and facilitate repair work. Compare such a panel with a solid mirror. Suppose you messed up or destroyed a fragile mirror surface. The mirror, in this case, will definitely go to the garbage, but the damaged tile can be easily replaced without disturbing the overall composition.

Mirrors in the bathroom

There are secret design techniques that allow you to turn the most ordinary and unremarkable bathroom into an elegantly furnished room. One of them is a competent use of mirrors. For example, a mirror wall in a bathroom is a fashionable and stylish solution that attracts many homeowners. But not everyone is ready for its implementation since they consider the installation of such a wall to be very difficult.
What should be taken into account by those who are going to turn one of the bathroom walls into a large mirror? Experiments with reflective surfaces are a favorite topic of many designers. After all, it has long been known that with the help of mirrors you can create additional lighting and visually change the size of the room. This includes a nice bonus in the form of a decorative effect.

Moisture resistance is the main criterion
The usual interior mirror is not suitable for the bathroom. It needs to be moisture resistant. Otherwise, after a few months, the amalgam on its backside will begin to break down due to the specific microclimate of the bathroom.
You can use the mirror for your bathroom is the following way:
• solid mirror of large size;
• several wide mirror sheets;
• a facing tile from a mirror, having the same parameters, as a usual ceramic tile for a bathroom;
• small mirror mosaic.

Giovani Glass will help you with the design and installation of mirrors of any design.
Everybody knows about the main advantages of the mirror -it looks stylish and expensive, optically expands a small room and, under artificial light, becomes a kind of “amplifier” of light fluxes.
It is recommended to place the mirror wall in the bathroom so that it is far enough away from the bathtub or shower. The word ‘mirror’ is associated with brilliance, gloss and flawless shine, so it will often have to be cleaned. In the case of a full wall, covered with such material, this process takes a lot of time but is easy enough.

Mirrors In Your Home

Areas of use and principles for the location of mirrors
When installing a mirror, it is necessary to remember that it should be as comfortable as possible for all family members: a tall person does not have to bend down to see how a hat sits, and a short one to rise on toes in order to consider the fit of a jacket.

It is better to choose mirrors as large as possible for corridors or to have a closet with a built-in facade mirror from ceiling to floor. The figure should not be split up, a person should easily evaluate the appearance from the top of the head to the sole of the shoes, therefore the mirror should be positioned at a distance of no more than 25-30 cm from the floor. The top edge of the mirror should be at least 20 cm taller than the tallest family member.

A mirror can be used for a different purpose in living rooms, but it should reflect the room in a beneficial way. You can arrange it in such a way that the composition of the paintings on the opposite wall is clearly reflected, or it can reflect a window with a view to the garden. The classic method of positioning the mirror over the fireplace will increase the height of the room and will make it optically slightly lighter.
Sometimes a rather large mirror is placed in the bedroom opposite the bed or along it. It is not recommended to do this, the reflection may confuse and disturb you. It is better to move the mirror so that it is located at the foot of the bed, or behind its back - then it will not cause anxiety.

The mirror in the dining room is rather an exception, and such design idea is even somewhat awkward as not many people will enjoy to constantly watch the reflection of themselves and other guests while eating. But there can be another option – to decorate the area around the dining table with mirrored panels with sandblasting, facet carving or partial matting.
Giovani Glass specialists will gladly help you with mirror design and installation.
