You’d be forgiven for not knowing what ‘crittall’ is, but you’ve probably seen crittall screens, doors or mirrors – especially if you’re an interior design fan. With a trend for crittall mirrors having swept social media in the UK, we’ve put together this guide on the cost to create a crittall mirror – or to have a handyperson create one for you!

Buying a crittall mirror can cost hundreds if not thousands of pounds to buy, especially if you’re buying a large mirror or a genuine antique. That said, you could enlist the help of a handyman and create your own bespoke crittall mirror for a fraction of the price.

The job should take 2-4 hours, giving you a labour cost of £40 to £120 to create the crittall mirror. You just need to factor in the cost of materials on top of the cost of labour.

FAQs

Can I create a crittall mirror myself?

In a word, yes. Singer and TV personality Stacey Solomon famously created her own DIY crittall mirror using 12 black IKEA picture frames and mirrors. The materials cost her less than £30 in total.

However, if you’re not a DIY enthusiast then we recommend hiring a local handyman to create the crittall mirror for you.

How do you make a crittall mirror?

If you’re thinking of a bespoke crittall mirror there are a number of options:

  • Using multiple small mirrors in black frames and joining them together.
  • Applying self-adhesive black lead tape to a piece of glass.
  • Using a real black window frame and combining with a large mirror panel.
