Here at Calgary’s House of Mirrors, one of the things we have come to most love and appreciate about
glass in a home is its versatility. Whether you need something that’s clean, classic, or cutting-edge, the

house. There isn’t a great way to describe these – you just have to see how wonderful they are for
