I am installing mirrored glass on a couple of walls for a home gym.
I need to cut two holes in the mirrors for electrical outlets. The glass
is not tempered.
How can this be done?
Thanks for any ideas.
Last few times this question came up on here, consensus was to measure very
carefully to make a template or diagram, and take the mirror back to the
glass shop and pay them to make the hole. Even experts have trouble with
this, and break them once in a while, but their expertise and correct tools
improve the odds. And if they break it, they will give you a better price on
Personally, I'd move the mirror and/or the outlets. If this is mirrored
tile, I'd skip those squares, and maybe a few others so it looks balanced,
and fill the holes with squares of something else- make it part of the
Outlets are normally only about 16 inches off the floor. Why do you
want the mirrors that low? Just start the mirrors above the outlets
and paint or put paneling below. Besides, mirrors to the floor are
likely to get smashed from objects, and if this is a gym, I assume you
will be tossing balls and stuff. Even more of a chance to break them.
I think anything less than 2 feet from the floor is too low.
If you insist on cutting them, let a glass company do the job. I like
to do things myself, but this I would not attempt.
