How do I get a mirror TV?
Mirror TVs are an innovative and exciting new trend that is taking the world of home entertainment by storm. They offer a unique combination of technology and style, allowing homeowners to enjoy their favorite TV shows and movies in a way that seamlessly integrates into their home decor. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits and disadvantages of mirror TVs, as well as highlight some popular brands like Overmantels and Pictureframe TV.
We have installed lots of Mirror TV's over the years and take great pride in hiding cables and making them look like mirrors when not in use. You can incorporate all the usual viewing stuff like Freeview, Sky and streaming as they use "normal TVs" not specialist TV's. Generally all will have a 4K screen as a minimum to make sure you'll still have great resolution.
First, let's discuss the benefits of mirror TVs. One of the biggest advantages of these devices is that they blend seamlessly into any room's decor. Unlike traditional televisions that are often bulky and unsightly, mirror TVs can be incorporated into any design scheme, from modern to classic. When not in use, mirror TVs look like ordinary mirrors, so they don't distract from the overall aesthetic of a room. They can be installed in bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, and even kitchens, providing entertainment without disrupting the room's overall feel.
Another advantage of mirror TVs is their versatility. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as watching TV, streaming content, or even displaying artwork. With the ability to display any image, a mirror TV can become a work of art when not in use. The device's dual function saves homeowners space and eliminates the need for multiple devices.
You can also install to bathrooms, kitchens, behind worktops and in showers. They really are very versatile.
Are there any disadvantages?
There are, however, some disadvantages to mirror TVs. One of the biggest issues is their cost. They tend to be more expensive than traditional televisions due to their unique design and technology. Additionally, the mirror itself may require special cleaning and maintenance as a normal mirror does.
Also if they're in a really brightly lit room and you use the TV a lot, then think about the finish as you may find it a bit bright. Overmantels does a couple of mirror finishes so it can be tailored to the room but it's worth thinking about before you order.
Who makes the mirrors?
When it comes to popular brands, we tend to stick to a few that we know work well and are good quality. Overmantels & Picture Frame TV offers a variety of mirror TV styles, including overmantel and wall-mounted designs. Aquavision & Proofvision are great for bathrooms.
They all use high-quality mirror glass and offer a wide range of customization options. Pictureframe TV also specializes in disguising televisions as artwork. Their frames are designed to look like traditional frames and can be customized to match any decor style.
Both have a fantastic range of frames to suit any room.
So how much are they?
It really is variable depending upon what you are getting. You can start from a 32" mirror TV for around £1200 and the cost will go up with the size of the TV and the mirror. Bear in mind that installation tends to cost a wee bit more than a standard TV as more work generally goes in to hide cables etc (although not always). As they are a bit bulkier and more delicate, we normally need 2 installers to do it and a bit more time so it can be a bit more of an expensive installation than a standard TV.
In conclusion, mirror TVs offer a unique and stylish way to integrate entertainment into any room's decor. Their dual function provides homeowners with a space-saving and versatile solution for their entertainment needs.
