Mounting a mirror is becoming more common as bathrooms in small locations force designers to experiment with small corner sinks. Installing a mirror in a corner is actually not very difficult and most home owners can hang such a mirror successfully. It is actually more difficult to get used to how the mirror looks once it has been installed.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Measure the width of the mirror. Transfer that measurement to 1-by-1-inch wood and mitre cut away from each mark at a 45-degree angle. Cut two boards.

  2. 2

    Determine the height you want the mirror and make two small marks on one side wall showing the top and bottom of the mirror.

  3. 3

    Place one board 1/4 the height of the mirror from the bottom mark and screw the board into the wall using four long screws. Place the second board level with the first and 1/4 the height of the mirror from the top mark and screw the board into the wall using four long screws (two on each end).

  4. 4

    Position the mirror at the marks and place small L brackets to mount from the back of the mirror frame to the top of each board. Mark four locations.

  5. 5

    Screw the L brackets into the back of the mirror frame using a power screw driver. (Use the shallow screws so they don't penetrate the frame.) Place the mirror on the boards and screw the L brackets into the boards using the screws that came with the brackets.

Tips and warnings

  • Inexpensive TV corner mounting brackets can also be used for mounting mirrors at flexible angles.
