We all take mirrors for granted, but when were they invented, and who invented them? It is assumed that the first mirror was a pool of water, and when some inquiring mind realised they could see their reflection, they set about trying to re-create the water's surface. The first man-made mirrors were made of highly-polished stone, such as obsidian, which is a type of volcanic glass. The first silvered-glass mirror that we are familiar with today was invented by a German chemist in 1835. While decorative mirrors have been around since the 16th century when Venetian glass makers created them as works of art, the most commonly used today are the bathroom mirror, and there have been some surprising advances in this age-old household item.
You probably look at your reflection in your existing mirror at least twice a day – every day, and these are an essential part of our life; as it comes in use in our day to day life. With Modern design and Technology, there has been a lots modernization in the home-decor industry. In the past, we have to live with the same old style mirrors, which were available in either rectangular, square or a round shape, and were mostly made of wooden or plastic frame. But, now the scenario has changed. Nowadays they are available with new advanced design and technology such as clear fog-less and with shaver sockets.
Why & When There is a need to Replace Existing Mirror?
Unless you are fully refurbishing your bathroom, the answer is probably 'no'. But if that's the case, then you’re missing a trick. Old mirrors can quickly get scratched or mouldy and look well past their sell-by date. Maybe your reflection isn't quite as clear as it used to be or maybe you can't quite rub off every mark on there. Over the time, most of the mirror loses its plating and a rustic background can be seen. This usually happens, when you purchase an unbranded or a cheap product.
But, when you buy from QS Supplies, you don’t have to worry about these problems. As we have showcased products, which are branded, manufactured from high quality material, and all the products displayed at our on-line store are backed by manufacturer’s guarantee.

Why Opt for a New One?
A new mirror can dramatically increase the light in your bathroom while giving you a new frame to admire. Should you choose something contemporary in metal? Or maybe something more ornate and luxurious? Maybe one with an inbuilt light could be useful, especially for shaving or applying make-up? There are lots of different types available at QS Supplies, you are sure to find one to suit your requirement.
