Mirrored acrylic makes a great material for producing child safe mirrors for any playroom, child’s bedroom or nursery. Acrylic has the same reflective surface as glass mirrors, but it’s far lighter, more durable and shatterproof, making it a safer option for children. We can cut our mirrored acrylic sheets to any size or shape, so you can add a unique decorative aspect to the room in a size to suit your needs.
Why use mirrored acrylic in a playroom?
Mirrored acrylic is perfectly suited to use in children’s rooms or nurseries and playrooms, as it’s safe, durable and easy to fix to different surfaces, from ceilings to doors. Playrooms should be safe places where your kids can stay entertained safely, so plastic is a common material as opposed to glass which can shatter easily and become dangerous.
Children and toddlers respond positively to seeing their own reflection and it can help to stimulate focus, curiosity and interactivity, as well as building their self-awareness. In particularly young children, it can also help to assist with their speech therapy and developing their literacy skills.
When you’re designing your playroom area, making a space for a child safe mirror is a great way to make the space more fun and engaging, as well as to open up the room. In addition to providing a great decorative element to playrooms, mirrored acrylic can also be used for the same purpose in other child-friendly environments, like schools, public nurseries and even children’s hospitals.
What are the benefits of using mirrored acrylic?
Acrylic is lightweight, so it’s easy to move and install yourself. In fact, it weighs half as much as its equivalent in glass, so it can be fixed easily to the interior of a room without the risk of it falling. To make the mirror as safe as possible for children, the edges of the mirror can be rounded to avoid any potential accidents from occurring and to remove the sharp edges that glass mirrors often have.
Mirrored acrylic sheets are easy to fit yourself – they can either be screwed to the wall, door or any surface you’d like to hand the mirror from, or you can use a suitable adhesive to affix the mirror instead. Both options are simple to do, so any DIY enthusiast can comfortably take on the task, and you can have a new child safe mirror installed in under an hour.
One of the main benefits of using acrylic is that it can be cut to any shape or size, so you can be as creative as your imagination will let you and create a fun and decorative mirror for your kids’ playroom – all you need to do is provide the design and dimensions you need, and we can do the rest.
