How A Dielectric Mirror Works
Dielectric Mirrors are the cutting edge of tv mirror technology. They allow flawless quality and incredible brightness compared to a two way mirror, ideal for bedroom and living room mirror tv projects.

Dielectric glass is the latest in tv mirror technology. The high quality, semi-transparent mirror provides flawless clear text and graphics through the tint-free mirror. To build your own Mirror TV, you’ll need:
- The mirror, which we can cut to any size you need.
- Television – The thinner the better
- Frame Moulding (2x the usual amount needed)
- IR Repeater to relocate eye of TV
A mirrored tv becomes a centerpiece of your home, a hot decor item with plenty to chat about, especially when you made it from scratch. Considering the full systems from other companies are sold for several thousand dollars each!

Buy TV Mirror Samples
We offer samples of our product so you can see it in person in the comfort of your own home. I recommend the 5/32″ (4mm) thickness for maximum clarity through the mirror. The 1/4″ (6mm) thickness is best for over-sized mirror projects or if you need it tempered for safety purposes. Tempering causes a wavy effect, so it’s only typically used for public installations.

What size mirror should I order?
You will want to order the mirror to be the same size as the overall size of the TV. That way, you can frame it up right to the screen for the best look. Here are some examples of TV sizes to get you started:
- 32″ Samsung Q60A – 28.5″ x 16.625″
- 43″ Samsung Q60B – 38″ x 22″
- 50″ Samsung Q60B – 44″ x 25.4″
- 55″ Samsung Q60B – 58.5″ x 27.9″
- 65″ Samsung Q60B – 57.1″ x 32.7″
- 75″ Samsung Q60B – 66″ x 37.8″
- 85″ Samsung Q60B – 74.8″ x 42.7″
We like using Samsung because they are thin, lightweight and bright. You can use any brand/model for a mirror tv project.
Which way do I install the mirror?
To install the mirror you’ll want to find the mirror coated side and face it outward toward the viewer. We have a helpful article here on How to Find the Mirror Coated Side of a Dielectric Mirror.
Which is better to use, a monitor or TV?
Preferably a thin TV. A TV typically has a flat backside and you can turn it on and off with a remote straight through the mirror. If you are framing right to the view-able area of the screen, you will need an IR Repeater so the remote will work through the television.
Can the mirror be larger than my TV?
Yes, if you’re not using a touch overlay. Simply back paint the backside with black paint everywhere except the TV and IR sensor. We recommend masking off the area with blue painters tape, and using a paint that works well on glass such as Black Rust-Oleum UltraCover 2x.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of tempering?
Tempered glass is heat-treated to increase the strength 10x. In addition, if tempered glass should break, it breaks into small shards which are less sharp than regular glass. The main disadvantage of tempered glass is that it causes distortion, similar to a fun-house mirror effect. For that reason, it’s generally not recommended unless going in a public installation.
How do I mount this mirror to the wall?
Assuming the mirror is being framed to connect it to the TV, you’ll want to use an ultra slim TV mount (0.4″ or less) behind it to keep it close to the wall. Alternatively, using an ultra thin tilting mount (0.75″ or less) will allow you to tilt it, connect cables or USB, then push it back against the wall when needed. Don’t forget to use anchors if you’re attaching it to plaster or drywall. A stud finder is recommended for mounting a TV wall mount, so you can drill into studs instead of drywall.
The Inland 05319 Ultra Slim Wall Mount is an excellent value at less than $20.
If the mirror is not being attached to the TV and it’s simply mounted in the wall, you can still use a wall mount within the wall, attached to a 2×4 board screwed into the studs.
How do I black out the back of the mirror?
You can paint the back (the non-mirror side–unless it’s beveled) with black spray paint such as Rust-Oleam High Heat or Ultra Cover 2x. Be sure to mask off the viewable area using a high quality blue painters tape such as Scotch Delicate Surface Masking Tape. Be sure to take careful measurements before painting to avoid mistakes, and you may consider purchasing a product sample from us for practice before painting the larger mirror.
Alternatively, you can use Gila Black Privacy Window Film, and be sure to also buy their application kit.
