Custom Cut Glass NY
To some, mirrors fill a need and to others they’re a piece of home decoration. Whether you’re using them to make sure your tie is straight or to add depth and natural light to a room, mirrors have a place in your home. Custom Cut Glass can provide custom mirrors that will increase the beauty of your residence while giving it a unique look. These custom mirrors can be a variety of shapes and sizes and will add that special touch to your residence.

The mirrors can be cut to your exact specifications so they fit perfectly in your home. If you have the vision, we can make it happen.

More Tips on using Mirrors:
  • Put you mirror on the wall above the dining room table to reflect the light of your chandelier
  • If you have a piece of art that you are really proud of, by placing a mirror on the wall opposite of it you double your ability to view it
  • Make sure that the mirror is in a place to reflect something that you want to look at. Don’t just put it anywhere.
  • Don’t place mirrors on ceilings. Back in the 1970’s it may have been the cool thing to do, and now we have moved gracefully on.
  • Mirrored furniture in a small space helps create the optical illusion of it not existing. Since it reflects the opposite wall, it creates the illusion of the piece of furniture not existing

Whether you are planning to hang the mirror in a bathroom, hall way or even using it to create part of a display.

We create frameless mirrors at 1/8”, 3/16” and 1/14” of thickness and also use standard edgework options such as bevel or pencil edge

Custom Tinted Glass

Custom Cut Glass NY

Looking for custom tinted glass? custom tinted glass Since Custom Cut Glass is a flat glass production facility, we’re not going to manufacture a replacement car window, since auto glass is usually curved in some way. The tinting process is very different to auto tinting. Instead of adding a colored film to the surface, we use colored glass where the color is part of the glass. That material is what reduces or changes the color of light coming through it, so that it appears darker or colored differently.

While these windows aren’t usually tinted as dark as some car windows, they still can restrict some of the effects of solar energy. Many kinds of flooring, furniture and fabrics can become subtly discolored or damaged because of long-term sun exposure, so tinting can help to mitigate those effects. Also, in living room situations, sometimes a properly tinted window can reduce incidental glare on TV and computer screens.

Since our glass tints are through the entire thickness of the glass, it is more durable and will not rub off like tinted films will. Glass tints of the same color will appear darker with thicker glass. Look at the color charts by thickness to see how the tint will affect darkness.

At Custom Cut Glass we carry glass in several different tints, which vary according to thickness. And we can cut tinted glass within an industry-leading 1/16th-of-an-inch cutting tolerance, which means we can match your exact specifications. Check out our tint samples and see if tinted glass might be a good fit for your next project.
