When remodeling a bathroom or other room in your home, the total cost of the remodeling project can be broken into separate categories. Materials, services, and labor are all large factors in overall costs. Because of this, many homeowners will often do partial remodel projects instead of full remodels to save money. For instance, when remodeling a bathroom, a home owner might choose to simply re-tile the floor one year and then replace cabinets another year. One project that many homeowners look into is getting a custom-made vanity mirror for either their bedroom or bathroom. In this article, we will cover the various cost factors. However, if you are interested in getting a custom quote for a mirror and live in the Merrimack Valley area we highly recommend contacting us for a quote.
Understanding The Different Types of Mirrors:
There are different mirror options to choose from when getting a custom mirror for a bathroom, bedroom, or other room. The most basic is a simple flat mirror. A flat mirror can a few hundred dollars to a thousand dollars based on the size and dimensions. Flat mirrors can usually be bought at furniture stores, however, they will not have the custom dimensions you might need. A more complex mirror design involves using mirrors that are also doors for cabinets. This is a fairly common design in bathrooms where an over the sink mirror also acts as a medicine cabinet. These mirrors will cost more as you will also need to buy materials for the interior shelves as well as the hinges. Another common design is a vanity mirror that is surrounded in lighting that makes it easier to apply makeup. This will also have an increase in cost as you will need to install the lights around a custom cut mirror.
Labor Costs For Installing Mirrors:
Additionally if you hire someone to install your mirrors for you you will likely need to pay an hourly rate for the installation. This is recommended if you are installing a custom mirror or a heavier piece. However, some homeowners choose to handle installation themselves especially if they are experienced with installation or they are installing a smaller mirror. Of course, you should not try and do a self-installation with an expensive mirror if you do not feel confident in your skills. Larger mirrors can be very heavy and improper installation can lead to a mirror falling off the wall and breaking.
