Mirrors can be used to create the illusion of a larger waiting room or office and add a bit of light and interest to quarters that contain muted tones. If you are thinking about having a series of mirrors professionally installed inside of your commercial business, learn why leaving this type of job up to the pros is your best option, plus prep the area where the additions will be displayed.
1. Endure Dangerous Conditions or a Sloppy Job
Hanging one standard-sized mirror that is relatively light in weight may not be too difficult to tackle, but when it comes to thicker mirrored slabs that are massive in size and quite weighty, you risk damaging drywall, ripping wallpaper, and installing each mirror in a lopsided manner.
Additionally, if you are not certain where to secure hardware into a wall, to ensure that metal pieces are stabilized, a mirror could accidentally crash and shatter into many pieces, posing a threat to you, your employees, and your patrons. A company that offers professional installations will recruit a crew who will carefully handle each mirror and anchor it to a wall.
2. Choose Your Proposed Outcome
The type of ambiance that you are hoping to attain may help you choose areas within your business that you would like to adorn with a mirror. For instance, if your visitors enter the front door and directly hang up their outerwear or sit down in a series of chairs, provide them with an area where they can take a last look at themselves, before meeting with you or another employee within the business.
A quaint desk or table that is situated underneath a mirror will add a classy touch. If you want to add dramatic beauty to a stark office or large reception area, choose a massive mirror that contains ornate trim or purchase a series of vertical mirrors that can be displayed side by side. Before the mirror installation process begins, clean the inside of your business and move furnishings that could inhibit the installers' efforts.
Once the mirrors are secured properly and you have viewed the new additions, think of some additional ways to dress up each area where a mirror is displayed. You can place plant stands next to or underneath a series of mirrors or install track lighting to draw attention to a mirrored surface.
