What quality do you choose for a fitting room mirror
Did you know that mirror glass is malleable? That means if you put a mirror on the wall and the wall is not perfectly straight the mirror image will be distorted, usually the mirror will bulge and you will look fatter. This can also happen if you buy a mirror with a frame, these are usually the cheaper versions and the mirrors from mass production like China, Egypt etc. This is because the groove of the frame is not entirely straight.
Barokspiegel.nl is known for the high quality of both the solid wood frame and the safe durable Eco mirror glass.
What is a safe mirror for the fitting room?
We always advise to choose a mirror with safety film for several reasons. If a mirror is under tension, for instance because the wall is sagging or does not run straight, a mirror can crack of its own accord. Cheap mirrors that are framed often have a mirror glass that is under tension. If the mirror breaks without safety foil all loose pieces will fall down and serious injury can occur because mirror glass is much sharper and more dangerous than normal glass.

Colour fastness fitting room mirror
Cheap mirrors are made with cheap materials and have to be finished as soon as possible. Therefore the mirror glass will not be de-iced and will have a yellow or green glow. This will affect the colour fastness of the mirror and it can be that the colour white in the mirror image is grey or green.
Barokspiegel.nl is known for its Miralite Pure mirror glass, extra clear and a pure colour fastness.
How big do you choose a fitting room mirror
A fitting room is often small and that is an annoyance to customers, research shows. By keeping the mirror as large as possible you give the room optically more space. Therefore, choose the maximum size of the mirror.
Many customers like to look outside the fitting room in a large mirror because there is more freedom of movement. Choose a large mirror with a nice frame, baroque or modern. This gives atmosphere and customers love it.

Do you sell more with a beautiful fitting room mirror?
Yes indeed, research has shown that you sell 25% more if the customer feels good and a good mirror and lighting helps!
So don't choose a cheap mirror but go for quality and safety!
Choose the right lighting for a fitting room mirror
According to research, too bright and bad lighting is a major annoyance in the fitting room. Also the interaction between the mirror and the lighting should be coordinated.
Just imagine. When you are trying on summer clothes and the poor lighting makes your legs and face look very white or you have a lot of red spots on your skin and face. 90% of the ladies finish trying on clothes immediately and walk out of the shop without buying anything.
Until you get to the supermarket and have a look at your white skin and red spots in the vegetable section. Then you discover that they are not there at all!
Which mirror is right now? What is the cause of this? Lighting in supermarkets is adjusted in such a way that the fruit and vegetables look perfectly in colour, which promotes sales.
If you provide the right lighting in the fitting room and, of course, colourfast and quality mirror glass, this will certainly promote sales, in addition to the fact that it also gives the customer a fair picture.
Just think, if you look yourself in the mirror and you look good, then you feel good and self-confident.
How do you hang a heavy fitting mirror with a wooden frame?
This is important to think about! Of course, framed mirrors are large and can also be very heavy. Our advice is to hang heavy mirrors from 15 kilos always on two hanging brackets. At Barokspiegel.nl we mount the brackets on the frame of the mirror so that the brackets can carry the correct weight of the mirror.
Do you choose to place the mirror on the floor and not to hang it? Then we recommend anchoring it to the wall. For anchoring, you can also use the mounting brackets.
