A dielectric mirror, also known as an optical grade beamsplitter, is a high transparency mirror that allows flawless clarity when viewing a TV through it.
When the TV is turned off, it vanishes and all you see is the mirror.
In this guide, I’m going to take you through how to make a mirror TV, how to frame your television, and a full list of parts that you’ll need to successfully complete your project.
If you’re looking to make a high quality mirror TV and want to save a ton of time on your project, you’re going to love this.
For mirror tv projects where you already have a designer, carpenter, or just love DIY, getting a custom size mirror is a great option.
Why use a dielectric mirror?
Dielectric mirrors are ideally suited for bedrooms and living rooms, where it hides your TV while providing exceptional visual clarity.
Many people make the mistake of going “cheap” and attempting to build a TV using window film or a two way mirror.
Only later do they realize it’s next to impossible to actually see their television.
Choosing The Best TV & Mount
You should choose a TV that’s thin, so that it doesn’t stick way out from the wall.
Additionally, use an ultra slim wall mount such as the Peerless SUF660 to hold it as close to the wall as possible.
How To Measure Your TV
You’ll want to measure the overall size of your TV using a tape measure or the specs from the manufacturer.
This will be the best size to order the mirror to.
How to Secure Your TV
Your frame will fit over the mirror, securing the mirror to the television. Z-bar brackets are added to the back to hold it tight.
