Mirrors are a great tool to add depth and light to a room. A mirror in a room without windows will reflect the lights and make the room appear brighter. They can also open up a small space by giving the room the appearance of having more depth. Oversized mirrors are a great tool to fill a large wall, while mirrored sets can create a unique focal point over a couch, mantel or console table.
This is an ordinary mirror that is coated at the back surface with silver which produces images by reflection. The mirror is made by depositing a silver coating, copper film and two or more layers of waterproof paint. This makes the unit resistant to moisture and acids. Silver is known for its high degree of reflectivity thus it reflects all light wavelengths resulting to a high quality reflective surface. This results to it producing clear and actual images. The mirror is heavily used in bathrooms, furniture and other areas that need to be decorated.
To make the mirror aluminum powder is evaporated onto the exposed surface of the glass in a vacuum chamber and then coated with a few layers of waterproof protective paint. There is a low aluminum glass mirror that is made from a silver coating and two layers of protective paint. The unique thing about this mirror is that it's clear, smooth, light transmissive and reflects accurate natural colors. The glass is heavily used for framing exhibitions and presentations when precise color representation of the artwork is of great importance.
