Mirror Prices

For the mirror itself, prices range widely. You might pay $10 for a simple framed mirror or shaving mirror to $3,000 for a high-end mirror TV, smart mirror, or bespoke custom design. This does not include labor, but only the mirror and hardware necessary to do the installation.

Mirror Installation Costs

It costs between $50 and $150 per hour in labor to install a mirror, depending on the complexity of the job and the mirror’s size. If extra wall reinforcement is necessary for heavy or oversized mirrors, the number of hours required (and therefore total labor costs) increase. Remember that if your mirror requires the addition of an extra outlet for wiring or you want lighting added to the mirror, you'll need to hire an electrician, which costs up to $160 per hour.

Usually, mirrors only take 30 minutes to one hour to install. However, handypeople usually have a minimum callout charge, so you'll still pay for the whole hour (if that's their minimum) even if the job only takes them 30 minutes.

"To eliminate the impact of overpaying for a quick job due to the minimum charge, my customers often make a list of other tasks for me to complete to make sure they get the most value," says Andy Kilborn, Angi Expert Review Board member and owner of Andy's Handyman Service in Des Moines.

Mirror Installation Cost by Size

Mirror installation costs from $6 to $20 per square foot, all-in. The heavier, larger, and more complex the mirror, the higher the cost per foot for installation.

Typically, a small, frameless, or simple-frame mirror up to 16 inches costs between $10 and $350 to install. A moderately sized mirror with average weight, up to 30 inches in size, costs up to $400 to install.

Larger mirrors up to 50 inches cost up to $525 to install, and oversized mirrors in excess of 50 inches can cost up to $680.

Bathroom Mirror Installation Costs

Bathroom mirrors and bathroom cabinets are different than regular mirrors because they need to cope with constant moisture and steam. Therefore, bathrooms need a silver-backed mirror. Because bathroom mirrors tend to be smaller than other household mirrors, they often cost less than larger ones of the same type.

Factors That Influence Mirror Installation Cost

Size, type, location, and ease of installation all directly influence how much your mirror installation project costs. Expect to pay more if the wall requires a reinforcement plate. Additionally, if you want a recessed medicine cabinet in the bathroom, you'll need to hire a local plumber to make sure there are no pipes close to the surface of the wall before you start the installation.

DIY vs. Hiring a Mirror Installation Pro

It's possible to save money and hang smaller mirrors by yourself if you have the tools and skills. However, remember that mirrors are fragile and if they break, they're dangerous. So, if you're a novice DIYer or if you're hanging anything other than a small mirror, it's best to hire a local handyperson to do the job. They'll have the right equipment and the right skills, and they can make sure your mirror is safe and secure. They'll also know if you need a reinforcement plate and what hardware is the best option for your home.

FAQs

Do I have to replace the whole mirror or just the glass?

In most cases, you can just replace the glass on a mirror if the rest of it is still in one piece. If you have an antique or vintage mirror, you can also get the frame restored to its original glory.

What's the biggest mirror I can buy?

You can buy mirrors up to 98-by-80-inches and you can have custom mirrors designed that are even larger, but the glass may be in more than one piece or the design may have multiple large mirrors individually framed.

Can you frame a mirror?

Yes, you can frame a mirror to give your living space a little design lift. Have a frameless mirror framed or get an existing frame replaced with something that matches your current decor.
