With more and more in-home fitness resources available, there’s simply no need to clock in at a traditional gym. Whether you’re training for a marathon, practicing yoga, or working out to lose weight, it’s easier than ever to meet your goals without ever leaving your house. Reach for new heights and boost your routine with home gym mirrors. This finishing touch will help you optimize your workouts and increase overall motivation. At M&M Glass, we can help you take your fitness space to the next level. Here's how.
Get Started With Home Gym Mirrors
There are so many different types of exercise that require good form. Floor routines like yoga and Pilates depend on perfect angles and strong poses. High-impact dance fitness like Zumba requires you to see every move. Boxing, weightlifting, and basic stretching all require a visual confirmation of your form. Good form helps you ensure a safe and productive routine that will help you meet your fitness goals and avoid injuries.
Further, mirrors also have a beautiful way of opening a space and bouncing light around. If your home gym is in a garage or basement, this is one of the easiest ways to increase lighting. Whether you have a little sunlight peeking through or only recessed lighting, mirrors can magnify what you're working with. A bright and well-lit fitness space is possible with the right home gym mirrors.
If you’re taking the first step towards creating your home gym, you may be wondering, “Which room should I use?” Fortunately, there is no right or wrong answer!
Some people prefer to use a spare bedroom, while others rely on their garage. Think about your fitness routine and how much space you need. If you typically do yoga alone, you probably don’t need much space. On the other hand, if you lift weights and use machines, you will want a bit more room. Either way, home gym mirrors are a necessary final touch.
What to look for in a large mirror for home gym
M&M Glass designs and installs a wide variety of specialty mirrors. Whatever the vision is for your home gym, we can make it a reality. Due to the nature of a home gym, it’s important to have a few key features when it comes to these mirrors.
First, you will usually want at least ¼ inch tempered glass. In the unlikely event that this type of glass breaks, it will fall into thousands of small pieces that are less dangerous. In general, thicker is better to guarantee sturdy mirrors. However, this depends largely on your specific needs and habits.
If you’re concerned with optimal clarity, you also want low-iron glass that is crystal clear. When customers complain about green undertones, this is usually because they don’t have low-iron mirrors. By reducing the iron content, we can create a type of mirror that has no tint, providing colorless clarity that will seemingly disappear in your home gym.
Home gym mirror ideas
As you browse ideas for home gym mirrors, consider the space you’ve chosen, as well as your fitness routine.
Are you looking for large floor-to-ceiling mirrors that fill the entire space of one wall? For this type of look, we usually recommend J-mold mirror mounts, a simple piece of hardware that lends a final, polished touch to seamless mirrors. This mount is made of a metal channel that adds a distinctive edge, without distraction. These mounts provide support for both the top and bottom of your mirrors, holding them tightly to the wall. At M&M Glass, our J-mold mounts typically fit ¼ inch thick glass. However, we can craft J-mold mounts for any size because they’re custom-made.
For those looking for functionality and beauty, framed mirrors are another beautiful option. Perfect for a small and simple yoga studio, framed mirrors offer a unique and textured look. At M&M Glass, we offer an extensive selection of stock frame options in a variety of finishes. From modern to traditional, you’ll find different wood and metal tones to fit your style.
Looking to take your home gym mirrors to the next level? We even carry lighted mirrors. Perfect for the early riser, this type of mirror will fill your space with the illumination you need. No matter the time of day, you'll have the ability to see exactly what you’re doing during your routine. The benefit here is also a beautiful and dramatic display for your dream home gym.
For added innovation, you can also consider adding a hidden LED HDTV. Available in a range of sizes, you can catch up on news or sports, all while getting your workout in. When you’re done, simply turn it off and it’s hidden from sight.
Please keep in mind when thinking about your home gym that the above options of framed mirrors, lighted mirrors, and LED HDTV mirrors are limited to maximum sizes. These options may not be available for large, floor-to-ceiling applications. Our sales representatives can discuss all available options during your free consultation.
Let's Design Your Home Gym
When you work with M&M Glass, we begin the process with a free consultation. One of our team members will come to your home, see the space, and hear more about your vision. We can also suggest options for your layout, based on our knowledge and expertise. Our team travels throughout Baton Rouge, Lafayette, New Orleans, and the Northshore.
Here's what you can expect when working with M&M Glass.
Impeccable design and craftsmanship
After your consultation, you’ll generally have an estimate in your hands within one business day. We will draft up a complete design plan, taking into consideration all of the factors we discussed. This includes glass thickness, potential framing, and much more.
If the estimate is not within your budget, just let us know. We’re happy to work with you to find alternatives that make your home gym mirrors more affordable for you.
Once you finalize the design plan, our team will get to work. We complete every piece right here in our Louisiana shop. Because we don’t outsource any of our work, you will always be “in the know” when it comes to the status of your home gym mirrors.
Built for safety
During your professional installation, safety is always top of mind.
In a gym, there is a lot of movement and activity. That’s why we attach our mirrors to studs to provide maximum support. Depending on the size and shape of your mirror, we may also add other seamless mounting equipment. You won’t even notice that it’s there, but it will provide you with peace of mind.
From start to finish, the installation process generally takes a few hours. Our team will treat your home like their own, cleaning up the area once the installation is complete. Before leaving, they’ll even explain how to clean and care for your new mirrors properly.
As always, your purchase comes with a one-year warranty period. This covers all M&M Glass projects, as well as repairs for previously-installed projects.
