Fixing a Bathroom Mirror

The first sign of an aging bathroom mirror is deterioration/darkening around the edges, usually because of moisture from the sink.

You can have a mirror resilvered, but it’s probably not worth the cost unless you’re restoring an antique. A less expensive solution for a simple design without a beveled rim  is to dismount the mirror and have a glazier cut off the damaged edges.

Another affordable option is to cover the damage with an attractive frame like in this picture.

    John: Love your blog, and the helpful tips. Keep up the good work.
    A tip from a local hotelier was to make sure to provide air space behind mirrors so the moisture could evaporate thus extending the life of mirrors too.
