We’re renovating our house. This time we are renovating our bathroom.
For the wall were our bathroom cabinet comes we’ve worked with metal studs and drywall. This way we could make sure that the cabinet behind the mirrors is placed in the wall, instead of in front of the wall.
Past days I’ve worked on the cabinet that will house our mirror. The middle part sticks out in respect to the left and right part. When the doors are closed, everything is nicely even.
Placing the cabinet
With the doors closed the front is nicely even…
Left and right we can place our products
Enough space in next to, above and behind the tv to place everything.

At this point I have 37 mm free on the sides. In the height I have 48 mm to spare. Now I have to think how to attach the tv to the cabinet. I don’t want to glue the mirror to the tv.
i was thinking of placing on both sides 18mm wide wood. On the bottom and top I would also place 18 mm (or I have to glue an 18 mm and 6 mm thick board together to come to 24 mm). This way I get a frame where I can glue the mirror to. The area to fix the mirror to will be 538 cm2. Only question is if this will hold the mirror!? The mirror will be around 528x841 mm and 8 mm thick, meaning it will weigh almost 9kg.
edit: I’ve searched for the specs of the silicone I’m going to use:
Area to fix it to: 53800 mm2
Mirror = 795 Newton
Mirror will have a force of 0.015 N/mm2
Max tension of glue: 1.50 N/mm2
I think I’m making a mistake in the calculation, not? The Max tension of the glue is factor 100 larger. This would mee that with the glueing surface I have I could hang a mirror of 900 kg !?
