High and Dry After Flood Damage

Repairing the damage done to your home after a flood can look like an overwhelming job. In most cases, it’s best to seek out the services of a professional flood damage restoration team. But when my home flooded a few years ago, I found out that there were some things that I could do myself. Books, clothes, and even furniture can recover from water damage under the right circumstances. Knowing how to prevent mold, and remove it when you find it, can also come in handy after a flood. I know that it can be a devastating event for a family. That’s why I started this blog – to share my experience with flood damage and share the things that I learned that helped me put my home back together. With both professional help, and amateur ideas, hopefully you can learn something useful from my experience.

3 Important Tips To Consider When Purchasing A Custom Mirror For The Bathroom

Construction & Contractors Blog

Bathroom mirrors play a vital role in your household: they help you see yourself when getting ready for the day. They also play an important aesthetic role for your home's interior. If you're looking to purchase custom mirrors for your home, these tips can help you make the right choice. 

1. Take Measurements

Before you start ordering a custom bathroom mirror, you first need to know what size it needs to be. After all, bathroom sizes can vary quite a bit from home to home. So that you select the perfect sized mirror, you'll need to gather some measurements.

Using a measuring tape, gather the dimensions of the area above the sink. This is probably the best location to place a bathroom mirror, given the sink is used for a lot of important morning routines. Make sure you record the length and width dimensions in inches. You can then use these figures to order the perfect mirror size.

2. Select an Overall Design 

Today, there are so many mirror designs you can select for the bathroom. These include framed mirrors, lighted mirrors, medicine cabinet mirrors, and ledge mirrors. Framed mirrors are one of the most popular options because of their prominent features. The frames come in many different colors as well, making it easy to match them with other elements in the bathroom.

Lighted mirrors provide a nice visual effect that you'll never get tired of looking at. If you want the custom bathroom mirror to have a dual purpose, medicine cabinet mirrors are ideal. With ledge mirrors, you can place bathroom essentials in an area that's easily accessible. 

3. Work With the Right Contractor 

Since you plan on having your bathroom mirror customized to fit your particular bathroom, it's paramount to select the right contractor who builds it. There may be many professionals in your area to work with, but you need to make sure they're competent with these types of builds.

Look at their portfolio to see what mirrors they've constructed in the past. Make sure their stylistic direction matches your preferences and also ensure their work is high-quality. You also want to make sure the contractor is affordable, which you can do by comparing their rates with other mirror contractors. 

The bathroom is one of the most important areas of your home, and to complete it, you'll need to add a mirror. The options are limitless if you get one custom made. Just make sure you think about what would work best long-term.
