Frame

In most cases, a mirror's look is dictated by the frame around the actual mirrored glass. Since mirrors tend to blend or disappear into the rooms that they are located in, the frame of the mirror is going to be what you notice. You have many choices for how you want your mirror walls frame to look like, you can select wood, metal or plastic, and the material can either be plain or decorative depending on what impression you want to make with your oval wall mirror.

Mirror

The actual mirrored glass itself is usually not going to vary much from mirror to mirror. However, some mirrors are antiqued, which means that they are treated with a special material that makes them less reflective and gives them a unique coating.
