Are the measurements important?
Custom mirrors require custom measuring. Many wall, floors and ceilings are not straight, level or plumb. It is important to have a glazier measure your space for mirror installations.

The most common thicknesses for mirrors are 4mm and 6mm. Most mirror walls are larger than average mirrors therefore 6mm is the preferred thickness. 6mm mirror does not bend as easily as 4mm, which provides a true reflection when adhered to a large wall.
