1. Choosing the Best Frame & Glass

You can easily frame your television using a decorative or shadowbox picture frame. Mirror televisions, also known as "smart mirors," have a simple, yet elegant design. They are created using a frame of your choice and a transparent dielectric mirror. The latest Samsung TV models are very slim, which allows them to be mounted close to the wall, blending in seamlessly with your decor.

2. How To Frame A Mirror TV

While a shadowbox frame can be used to quickly frame a mirror TV, a decorative frame can add a lot of style. With a table router, you can widen the rabbet of your frame to match the bezel of your TV, hiding it completely. In this guide, we take you through details to make the perfect mirror TV, such as recommended equipment, how to frame precisely at a 45 degree angle, and how to build a side frame that matches the front of your frame. With these instructions, you can make your Mirror TV truly look like art.

3. How To Install A Mirror TV

Before installation, typically a recessed power outlet and HDMI cords will be strung back through the wall (often by an electrician or AV installer). The easiest way to install a mirror TV is with an ultra thin universal wall mount such as the Peerless SUF660. By using an ultra slim mount, the frame hangs close to the wall, allowing it to blend in with no noticeable gap between the frame and the wall. A slight gap of 1/2" is typically allowed for sound to pass through unimpeded around the frame.
