Acrylic Mirror for Children's Rooms and Play Spaces

Acrylic mirror is a fabulous alternative to glass mirror for children’s bedrooms and play spaces as even if it were to break - which is quite unlikely as it is approximately 10 times more impact resistant than glass mirror, it will not break into sharp shards like glass can. When acrylic sheet cracks or breaks it is most likely to break into large pieces with relatively blunt edges so it would be fairly difficult to accidentally cut yourself.

Acrylic mirror is great in children’s bedrooms not only for reflecting light into dark corners and making small rooms appear larger but also for creating a sensory play area. One of our customers has done just this by installing the mirror in a corner of the room and having bubble light tubes fitted in front of the mirror. Not only does this cast light into the room but it also produces an amazing sensory play space for the children.

For slightly older children who aren’t going to put small objects in their mouths (or up their noses for that matter!!) why not try using a piece of acrylic mirror as a play surface. Children are fascinated by the reflection of the small objects on the surface of the material and for a different perspective you could try taking it outside. Playing on a reflective surface in the garden is an entirely different experience. The reflections of moving clouds in the sky or the leaves swaying in the trees is fascinating and the completely different perspective of looking down to see the sky can start some really interesting conversations.

Acrylic mirror can even be attached to an outside wall or fence to provide a permanent outdoor sensory play space. Just be careful that you do not place the mirror in areas of direct sunlight as this can intensify the sun’s rays and cause focussed heat spots.

Experts suggest that young children can recognise their own reflections from about 18 months old, so this would be a great time to incorporate a piece of mirror into the décor of their bedroom or play space. Take a look at the attached image sent in by one of our customers who has made a fabulous ballet dancing area in her daughter’s room.
