    Default how to wall mount mirror in bathroom?

    I have mirror that i want to wall mount it in bathroom. Used to have the wall mount clips to secure the 4 corners but i had misplaced them.

    Anyone knows where to get these clips or anything that can securely mount the mirrror onto wall?

    I tried IKEA but it sells only the packaged mirror with clips. Not clips sold separately!

    thanks & regards.

    go to ikea and ask them if they have spares

    it seems that your purchase did not come with the clips, yes?

    you can purchase them from ikea, they do sell these, or you can request from them if the receipt is recent.

    but how big is the mirror? if not too big, can try double side taping it. then reinforce with silicon around the side of the mirror for the washroom. its more easier to do and create less mess before and after. 3M Super Heavy Duty Tape + Silicon. remember to wash clean the tiles and rear of the mirror and then dry it before application

    Thanks. It's about 17" x 24". I somehow have the feeling that using tape + silicon may not hold the mirror secure enough, dare not try cause have children at home...

    HomeFix has it, I bought some.. there are two types, one pack for corners only, one pack for the sides.

    btw, it is for normal thickness mirror, and you need to drill holes on wall to install it.

    I don't trust those tapes and silicon...if you stay in HDB...most likely your toilet wall are tiles...I can't imagine the mirror fell half way through the day....mine are from Ikea too and I drill...can withstand 7 degree earthquake I guess

    If you are worried about the glass breaking, tape the back of your mirror with tapes..... maybe with gaffer tapes??? This will prefect the glass from breaking to small pieces and also from cracking.. but this will also make the mirror panel abit heavier....... consider about it.
