The reflective qualities of mirrors can transform your home design in ways you may not have considered.
Mirrors offer both beauty and function, from stunning mirrors in beautiful frames for an accent wall to full mirror walls within a walk-in closet. If you are looking for a creative way to add depth and the illusion of space to your home, get creative with mirrors for your interior design.
Mirrors have long been used to create the illusion of space. Ever notice that almost every RV has several mirrors placed strategically throughout the interior? The reflection makes each room seem larger, making a confined space seem more spacious. The same technique can be used in your home.
Do you have a tiny office or bathroom that you want to seem larger? Consider adding a mirrored wall to open up the space. You may be surprised how much difference a mirror can make in a small room, making it seem brighter. This can be used in almost any room that you want to make seem more spacious.
When do you need a mirror the most? No bathroom would be complete without a mirror above the sink. However, that is not the only place where you might enjoy the functionality of a mirror. When you are getting ready for your day, it helps to have a full view of what the world will see when you walk out your door. Here are a few functional ideas:
Mirrored closet. A full mirrored wall in your walk-in closet is one option to help you look your best. Another option is to add mirrors to the interior or exterior of your closet doors for a built-in full length view when you are putting yourself together in the morning.
Bedroom mirrored wall. Why limit yourself to a small vanity mirror when you can have a full wall to give you a good look at yourself? Set up a small vanity against the mirrored wall with all your makeup, brushes and accessories.
Entry hall mirror. Need to take one last look at yourself before you head out the front door? Add a beautiful mirrored wall, framed mirror or shaped mirror in your entry way so you can fix that untucked shirt or errant hair before you head out into the world.
Enjoy the View
The great thing about mirrors is that they give you a chance to enjoy the view behind you. If you have a fantastic view off your back patio, why not bring it inside as well? Or maybe you want your guests to enjoy the whole room when they are bellying up to your bar for a cocktail? Mirrored backdrops can reflect the view of the outdoors inside your home or make an excellent backsplash for your home bar, extending the views within your home.
Form & Inspiration
Exercise is part form, part motivation, and mirrors can help with both. If you have an exercise room in your home, add a mirrored wall to help you improve your form and keep you inspired. You don’t need to be a ballet dancer or body builder to benefit from having a full view of your form when you exercise. Keep your eye on your fitness goals by having a full view of your masterpiece right in front of you.
Mirrors are not just functional; they can also be used as art. Framing a plain mirror in a fantastic unique frame can transform it into an intriguing focal point for a dining room or accent wall. You can use a variety of mirrors in various shapes, sizes and frames to create a glorious accent wall in your hallway or any interior wall. There are also many art pieces designed from mirrors that are perfect for adding a modern style to any room.
Mirrors are a wonderful way to add frivolity and function to almost any room of your home. From full, frameless mirrored walls that create the illusion of space to small framed mirrors that are charming accents. You can use the timeless elegance of mirrors to create an interesting and multiple dimensional look in your home. Be creative and consider all the options for using the reflective qualities of mirrors to open up your interior spaces.

Could Not Be Any Happier
I just had a back-painted backsplash installed in my kitchen. It looks awesome; they matched the exact color I wanted. I could not be any happier with the final product!

Great to Work With
Anchor-Ventana just installed solar screens on my whole house. They were great to work with, and the installers were wonderful! I highly recommend this company.
Lizzie, Austin, TX
Finally… I found a company that’s willing to work with me instead of one that only wants to sell their products. Everyone I’ve had the opportunity to work with there has been terrific. I remodeled my bathroom; they helped me pick the perfect shower. NOW I HAVE MY OWN SPA BATH. Thank you for all your help!!

Polite & Professional
Anchor-Ventana was awesome. I completely redid my bathroom. I had a lot of contractors in and out. Anchor-Ventana’s guys are the only ones who were polite and professional-looking every time they came. They cleaned up any mess they made and even hauled off my old shower door and mirrors for me. I am a repeat customer and will use them again.

Attention to Detail
“I have recommended and personally used the services of Anchor-Ventana and have been very happy with their attention to detail and warranty. When a manufacturer of back painted glass went out of business and their glue started showing through the glass, Anchor-Ventana replaced the glass and researched an alternate glue to complete the project.”
Harris Welker Architects, Austin, TX
“I have been using Anchor-Ventana for years. They always do first-rate work, and as a remodeler I have some pretty demanding clients, and their crew always comes through. Don’t hesitate to call them.”

Your guys are amazing…
Your guys are amazing – super polite, friendly, explanatory, and professional.
I Really Appreciate the Work…
I really appreciate Daniel and the work he does when he comes to my home for installations. I appreciate how conscientious and kind he is.
I have never been as impressed…
I have never been as impressed with the quality and professionalism of a company as I have been with Anchor-Ventana Glass. From the person who measured to the crew that installed, everyone was courteous and also the installers did a good job of cleaning up after themselves. I was also impressed with the quality of their product.
Top Notch Installers
“Your installers have been top notch. Really a great team to work with!”
Worked With Them for Years
I have worked with Anchor-Ventana for years. They have made glass table tops for me and have installed glass and mirrors for builders I work with on numerous new construction and remodel projects. I have found them to always be professional and responsive. If you need glass for any type of application, they will do what they can to make it possible.

I Just Wanted to Take a Second…
I just wanted to take a second and let you know how much I appreciate Michelle. As I am sure you are aware, she is always on top of things and goes out of her way to be helpful. When things get put in her hands I can check that off my list because I know she is working on it and is going to get it done. That may not sound like much but it is a wonderful feeling from my end. I think she should get a fancy vacation to somewhere exotic. Wait a second scratch that. If she is gone to said vacation then she will not be there to do what she does so, lets just go with a bonus or something. Thank you.
Helped Me With Everything
Anchor-Ventana helped me with everything I needed. I wasn’t sure exactly what that was until I visited their Round Rock showroom. So many options. The lady who helped me was excellent.
Johnny, Round Rock, TX
“We have always used Anchor-Ventana for all our kitchens, bathrooms, and glass back-splash. Everyone is very professional. Love the new products and hardware systems they introduce. Clients have always been happy with the final result. We recommend them to everyone all the time!”

What a great experience…
Anchor-Ventana – Wow! What a great experience. We recently had seamless shower enclosures installed in our home. The professionalism and customer service we received was second to none. The experience was outstanding. As a customer we were updated on the order on a regular basis. Loved it, and would highly recommend AV.
Jennifer, Austin, TX
Anchor-Ventana did a terrific job replacing an older shower door with a frameless one and creating three lovely beveled mirrors for my master bathroom. I received estimates from other companies, and AV was more reasonable and much more professional. It’s worth a trip to Round Rock to see their extensive showroom. Our salesperson there, Christy, was very helpful and kept track of the job throughout the process. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. I intend to call AV for window glass replacement, too. A contractor had told me that glass replacement for my windows and patio doors was not possible–and that I’d have to put in new windows and new doors now that the seals were broken on the double glass panes. AV said it was not a problem to replace the glass. I look forward to that work. I can strongly recommend Anchor-Ventana in Round Rock.

“Pillar Custom Homes builds high-end green custom homes, and we have been using Anchor-Ventana for our mirrors and glass needs for well over a decade. They are a top-notch outfit and do reliable and conscientious work. I have had the same salesperson during this entire period, and she has done a remarkable job. Not only is their product quality superior, but the pricing is competitive. I hope you decide to use Anchor-Ventana so you will have results similar to what we have experienced over the years.”
Pillar Custom Homes, Inc.
Finished Product is Beautiful
“Originally, the client wanted to use another vendor they had worked with in the past. After a few discussions with the vendor, I decided they were not suited for the precision craftsmanship necessary for this project. I had used Anchor-Ventana on a residential project that required a glass countertop cut in a very unusual shape. I was confident they could make the top for the furniture in the current project. The finished product is beautiful, and the client was thrilled with the results.”

Five Star Review
“Having used Anchor-Ventana for many years, we are delighted to give them a 5-Star review. Providing great customer service is how we build our business, and having trade contractors like Anchor-Ventana allows us to be able to follow our business model. They do what they say they are going to do. They walk their talk. With out a doubt, we recommend them highly.”

Excellent Customer Service
“CG&S has worked with Anchor-Ventana for over 15 years. They have provided excellent customer service from sales, to fabrication, to installation. What we love best about them is they have a strong group of people who listen well and really care about our projects. We recently worked with them on a curved shower enclosure. The project came out beautiful!”

I know when I call Anchor-Ventana
I know when I call Anchor-Ventana I’m going to get professional, knowledgeable people that genuinely take pride in the quality of work they do!
Helped Raise Money for Charity
“Anchor-Ventana Glass just helped us complete a Southern Living Showcase House in Lago Vista. This project is directed at charity, and one of them (Operation Finally Home) provides mortgage-free housing for our wounded troops. Thanks to Anchor-Ventana, we were able to raise a significant amount for charity. Anchor-Ventana has been wonderful to work with. I have used them in the past on remodeling projects and will continue to in the future. They offer timely, efficient service, backed by great customer awareness. I have found them to be quick to correct any issues that have arisen with a great smile on their faces. I highly recommend them for any glass project you are considering.”

Shower stall is in and looks great. Thank you and Christy for all of your help and guidance. Also, the fellows that did the installation were very nice and really did a nice job of cleaning up after themselves. Mike the fellow that did the measurement was a very nice guy too and seemed to be very experienced. Thanks to all of you. I have recommended and personally used the services of Anchor-Ventana and have been very happy with their attention to detail and warranty. When a manufacturer of back painted glass went out of business and their glue started showing through the glass, Anchor Ventana replaced the glass and researched an alternate glue to complete the project.
