Child Safe Playroom Mirrors

Mirrored acrylic from The Plastic People is ideal when used as child friendly mirrors in playrooms. We sell safe, durable and affordable plastic sheets that you can fix to walls, ceilings, cupboards or doors. Playrooms are designed to be safe places to keep your children entertained – therefore, plastic safety mirrors are far from uncommon. This is because they represent a much safer and child friendly alternative to traditional glass mirrors.

Young children especially respond positively to seeing their own reflection, as it can stimulate curiosity and focus – which is good for improving interactivity and building self-awareness.

For toddlers, a reflective environment doesn’t just help to develop an inquisitive young mind, but can also aid with speech therapy and literacy at an early age.

Therefore, if you’re yet to design your playroom area – it’s worth factoring in the space to include a child safe mirror or two (depending on how much space you have to begin with).

Besides working wonders in kid’s playrooms, the mirrored acrylic we sell can also be used for the same purpose beyond the home, in other child friendly environments – such as safety mirrors for schools, or even nursery mirror walls, for example.

The beauty of mirrored acrylic is that it is very lightweight. In fact, it weighs around half as much as glass – which makes it very easy to fix to the interior of a room.

Sharp edges and corners of acrylic playroom mirrors can also be rounded to avert any potential accidents.

A child safe wall mirror can also add a nice decorative element to a bedroom wall – and with us, you can purchase mirrored acrylic cut to size and/or shape.

How Do I Fit My Safety Mirrors?

Our Acrylic Mirror Adhesive is ideal for bonding mirrored acrylic to wood, brick or plaster.

For the best result, you need to ensure that you are fixing the mirror to a dry, dust-free and non-porous flat surface.

Then use a silicone sealant suitable for acrylic use to seal the mirror round the edges.

Alternatively, you can fix the mirror to your chosen surface with screws. 

Are These Types of Mirror Prone to Damage?

Mirrored acrylic is highly durable and easy to clean.

Unlike traditional glass mirrors, you needn’t worry about damaging the plastic during the actual process of fitting the mirror. The fact that plastic is much more lightweight also helps in this situation.

If the mirror gets marked by a pen for instance, it is easy to clean. Simply wipe down with warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth. Chemical cleaner use on acrylic should always be avoided.

It’s hard to break acrylic, however in the rare event that damage occurs, it will snap into larger, more manageable pieces as opposed to many shards of sharp, hazardous glass – making it much easier to safely clear the area should any accidents happen.
