Custom mirrors, backsplashes & table tops are another one of our specialties. No matter the size of job we’re working on, at Super Glass we always custom-cut or custom-order every piece to ensure each customer gets exactly what is needed. Whether you’re working on a kitchen or bathroom renovation, our team of professional installers do it all with great attention to detail.
Glaziers are essentially the last trade to take part in your bathroom renovation process. Once your countertop and electrical boxes are installed, we will then come and measure your custom mirrors. If your new vanity mirror is to go in a frame, it is best that you have the frame made up before the mirror. Once the frame is made, we will glue the mirror into the frame, and install at your home. There are different variables to consider when it comes to mirror including:
- Thickness of mirror
– typically 3mm (1/8”) for framed mirrors
– typically 5mm (3/16”) for mirrors with no frame or for larger framed mirrors
– 6mm for large mirrors with no frame or for mirrored walls
- Bevel vs. polished edges
– bevels are available in ½” thick up to 1 ½” thick and give more of a classic look
– polished edges are more contemporary and usually give a modern feel
Take a look at our blog post regarding glass edging to get a better idea of different styles to choose from.
Vanity mirrors are typically installed using clear (regular) mirror. If you are looking to install a mirror in your restaurant or pub, coloured mirrors are available:
- Black mirror
- Grey mirror
- Bronze mirror

Like a vanity mirror, if a new glass backsplash is a part of your kitchen reno, glaziers are the last trade to come in. Once the countertop is installed give us a call and we will come by to measure. Glass backsplashes will normally be fabricated from mirror or a back-painted glass – it is ultimately your decision and comes down to what kind of look you’re trying to achieve. Back-painted stock colours are:
- Harmony solex (green)
- Warm grey
- Harmony blue
- Harmony grey
- Lava bronze
- Medium grey
Although these are the standard colours available, custom colours are available upon request – please keep in mind that back-painted glass custom colours cost substantially more than standard colours. Always ask for a sample before making your colour choice. Make sure to check out our portfolio to see vanity mirrors and backsplashes Super Glass has installed.
Are you looking for a piece of glass to act as a protective surface for your dining room table or night stand? Or perhaps you want a glass shelves which will really stand out and make a statement. Whatever you may be looking for, we can offer expert advice and help you with you decision. Depending on the application, the thickness of glass will vary:
- 6mm (1/4”) great for standard table tops if you’re just aiming to protect the surface
- 8mm (5/16”) not too thick, just a little more than standard which will make it stand out just enough
- 10mm (3/8”) or 12mm (1/2”) if the glass is going to be acting as the surface itself
- 15mm (5/8”) or 19mm (3/4”) great for statement pieces
Glass table tops and shelves also have the option of choosing a bevelled, flat polished or pencil polished edge. Click here to find out more about edging. Table tops and shelves are available in different styles such as:
- Clear (float glass)
- Satin etch (frosted glass)
- Starphire (ultra-clear glass)
- Grey (float glass)
- Bronze (float glass)
To read more on the different styles of glass to choose from, please check out our blog post by clicking here. Unless the glass is going to be outdoors or supporting a large amount of weight, glass table tops and shelves will typically be annealed (non-tempered) glass. Because tempered glass is a safety glass it is always a good idea to have pieces tempered if children are going to be around.
