  • Acrylic may absorb moisture if used outside, so use, specific garder mirrors, made from glass or aluminium composite mirrors instead.

  • Acrylic mirror is much lighter than glass, making them easier to move around and putting less pressure on the surface you attach them to compared to glass.

  • Glass is heavier than acrylic, so not as versatile or easy to mount.

  • Acrylic mirror is more prone to warping when being fixed whereas glass will not. If you still wish to use acrylic, ensure that you mount it onto a flat surface to avoid this.

  • Acrylic mirrors can be curved or bent, whereas glass must remain flat.

  • Glass mirror will offer a perfect reflection, whereas some types of acrylic mirrors have less reflective quality than others.

  • Glass is harder to drill holes into, with the risk of splintering or shattering.
