Whether you’ve moved into a new house and inherited something that’s not your style, or rent a place that doesn’t allow you to make permanent changes, MirrorMate Frames could help you make things more personal. The concept is simple and cool — they’re frame pieces that you snap onto the mirror to change its look without even taking it off the wall. I have a few samples in front of me, and they are great quality — I confess I feared they’d be a little plastic-y, and they’re not. They’re made of fiberboard, but they feel substantial without feeling heavy and they look every bit as nice as frames you’d get at your local frame store. A couple of the finishes would do up a Hollywood Regency-inspired room quite nicely, and there are some nice, simple modern looks too. The frames are sold by the linear square foot — you can view a price chart here — and the company says that typical mirror frame costs are between $109 and $198.
