Mirror tiles - Is there any cool use for these!

June 22, 2019
last modified: June 22, 2019

I have been kindly gifted some mirror tiles 300x300, and I am sceptical that there is anything I can do with them that is not straight out of 1970s kitsch, and I don’t mean good kitsch.

Would anyone have any suggestions please? Cheers, Anna,

    Are they beveled and how many do you have

    Hi, yes, they are beveled. There are 7, and could be augmented as they seem to be from Bunnings.

    Very interesting to put them on a door.

    The right door could look amazing, 7 doesn't give much to work with perhaps put them (6) on the wall and then frame them, I had them on a wall in my unit years ago when the were IN.

    I am happy to buy more. But I’m not quite sure why. The corridor idea is an excellent one, but doesn’t apply to my place.

    I think that they are now a bit weird and if you don’t immediately love them, you’ll never will. I’d pass them on.

    I tend to agree. I’ve never really liked them but I just wondered if someone was a bit more creative and could update a use.

    I have used them on the north facing wall of a skylight shaft at the top, just below a Velux window.. You don't really notice them unless you look up the shaft but they do bounce a lot of extra light down the shaft. I have done this for an internal laundry and ensuite where there are no windows, and as a result neither of these rooms seem dark or gloomy during the day.

    Best of luck with your considerations,

    Hi Anna, just a few more ideas. Love the idea of adding a small shelf to add interest, you could back them or just stick them on the wall and add a floating shelf.

    if you dont use them on the house, repurpose them as a base for putting presents on with cellophane wrapping - ie candles & chocolates for teacher presents (sorry my kids are still at school!)

    Love the top pic Julie.

    Could put then on back of a hinged wardrobe door or shaving cabinet door
