Frameless mirrors are most commonly found in people's bathrooms, but can also be attached to walls in various rooms to make the room look larger, without a frame breaking up the reflected image. Typically, frameless mirrors are used to open up a space and give the illusion of size in small rooms. Frameless mirrors are found in arts and crafts stores, home goods stores, and stores that sell repurposed home wares, and they are not too difficult to hang in your home.

Things you need
- Stud finder (optional)
- J-hook clips
Find the wall studs on the wall. Stud finders beep when there are studs and they make it easier to avoid electrical wires as well. Walls made out of concrete do not require the use of a stud finder.
Hold the mirror up to the wall and level it according to the wall and shape of the mirror. Mark the wall where the mirror should be held, at the bottom, top and sides. The number of clips and the size of the mirror will dictate the number of markings. Typically, there should be at least four, though larger mirrors will require more clips to hold the weight.
Drill holes where the mirror clips will go. The holes should be drilled according to the markings on the wall. Make sure the drill is the appropriate size for the clips. The size will vary based on the size of the screws used to hold the clips in place. The size should be slightly smaller than the screws.
Place the bottom clips against the wall and then screw them into place. Leave the top clips off the wall. The clips have a J-hook design that is ideal for holding frameless mirrors due to the hooked shape. The hooks are usually found in a hardware store in the home goods sections or in a section with wall hooks, depending on the store and the set up.
Slide the mirror into the clips. The exact design of the clips will determine the best method, but most will simply slip down the wall and into the clips.
Screw the top clip or clips into place.
