How much to hang a mirror? The contractor cost to hang a mirror is $105 vs. doing it yourself for $50 and saving 52 percent. 

Judging by the photo spreads in home design magazines, mirrors seem to be very popular wall decorations in today’s homes. We see them hanging in foyers, dining rooms, and living rooms. It makes sense because a wall mirror tends to create a feeling of depth and visually doubles the space.

It’s a popular addition on a wall to open up a narrow hallway, or expand the space in a small dining room, or create the illusion of extra space over a fireplace mantel.

The weight of a mirror is a concern and should be considered with caution. One mounting system uses plastic mirror J-clips: these are screwed into the wall and the mirror rests in them.

Another combines adhesive and an L-channel along the bottom of the mirror; the channel seems to disappear when installed, and the mirror appears to float on the wall.

When removed from the wall, the clips leave screw holes, and the L-channel leaves dried construction adhesive, something to consider when selecting a mounting system.

To have a mirror installed you can hire a handyman, glass and mirror service or do it yourself. A mirror service will install a 36- by 48-inch beveled edge mirror for $105, which includes the labor and material. You can buy the mirror and hardware and install it yourself for $50 and save 52 percent.
