It only takes a few minutes spent in our Calgary showroom to see how excited we are about glass, mirrors, and custom frames. We don’t just love our products, but also the fact that they’ve helped so many homeowners and designers make already-wonderful spaces that much more beautiful.
Lately, however, it seems that a lot of other people are sharing our enthusiasm for glass and mirrors, too. And while some of this might just come down to our shared good taste, we think there is also another important reason: Glass and mirrors tend to be very durable, making them a wonderful investment when it comes to home renovation.
Simply put, quality glass and mirror products that are well cared for are likely to look as good 10 or 20 years from now as they do today. While other types of furniture and fixture (namely wood) can also age well, the same can’t be said of plastics and other materials. This is particularly true in high-traffic areas of the home, where glass and mirrors can keep looking great without suffering the kind of wear-and-tear that other pieces do.
At a time when everyone is looking to stretch their dollar a bit farther, this can be a bigger benefit than most homeowners imagine. That’s because it doesn’t just mean having to replace items far less frequently, but also being able to keep a consistent look and style over the years if you so choose. It may even increase the resale value of your home, if the glass in question is in a key area like the kitchen or bathroom.
Granted, there are lots and lots of reasons to love glass and mirrors in your home. But, to see just how durable, beautiful, and affordable they are, you should stop into our Calgary House of Mirrors showroom and take a look for yourself!
