Colored Mirror

Adding a pop of color to your interior space is just like opening a window to a dark room. Is one of the greatest ways to create visual interest.

Colored mirror glass is an alternative to traditional updates, such as new paint or a bright throw pillow. Some glass shops offer a variety of colored mirror options. The most common selections are usually green, bronze, and gray. However, there are also options for even bolder colors, such as pink, purple, red, and even yellow.

Antique Mirror

Antique mirror glass, such as the name says the effect antique brings uniqueness with it. Overall the antique effect has dark or tarnished speckles, which is another option. The metallic coating on the back of the glass oxidizes over time and causes this effect.

While the antique mirror look does occur naturally over time, you don’t have to wait hundreds of years. Many glass shops offer antique mirror options that you can easily incorporate into your home. Applications include interior walls, backsplashes, tabletops, or even furniture.
