Wall Mirrors

We have already removed our backsplash mirrors and replaced them with tile. We are now taking a hard look at the mirrors on the wall by the fridge. Just curious what others have replaced the mirrors with.

We are currently doing some updating and figured we might as well tackle that also.

Thanks, Terry

This is what we did with the mirrors in the kitchen. As you know itís a lot of work so we left the ones in the bedroom.

Oddly enough the mirrors by the fridge are the only ones we haven't removed yet. On them hangs a calander and stickers from everywhere we've been. Thought about hanging a corkboard there.

I just made it into a blank white wall. It makes the space seem larger and not as cluttered.

In my case, the dining room mirrors were attached with some kind of heavy-duty adhesive----so much more difficult to remove than the kitchen/bedroom.

Kbenfield,
In my case, the bedroom mirrors were the easiest. Almost too easy on a few panels. Made me think I had avoided a glass-in-the-head-while-sleeping injury in the future.

We took all our mirrors off and glued them to the bedroom ceiling

Thanks all,

It wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't for the beveled mirror. Kinda dated and busy looking! I guess we'll see what we can find to put there, no real rush. I could remove them and then I'd have to do something.

Sounds like they're stuck on with that that thick white adhesive, that stuff is a PITA to get off. The bathroom valence was stuck on with it as was the kitchen table bracket. The bracket to wall and bracket to table top were both glued and screwed and a pain to remove.

Thanks, Terry

We took down ALL the mirrors, including the bedroom. We found a wood material specifically made for walls and installed instead of the mirror in the bedroom and on the refrigerator wall and used split-face stone for the kitchen backsplash!

Sorry Couldn't find pics of the bedroom walls

X2 like the backsplash. The fridge wall not so much. Think it would look better running it the other way so it kinda looks like shiplap.

You're probably right about the wood but.....it went in much quicker, and it actually looks much better with a picture on that wall

BTW that wall is slated for a 23.5"x23.5"x4" LG mini-split wall unit, so you'll see very little of it in the near future

No kidding Paul?
The mini-split sounds like a fantastic idea.
Without starting a new thread, can you give a brief description of how it will work in the rv? Like, electric /gas? Produces x amount of heating/cooling btu? Cost? Instalation?
