Gold Mirrored Acrylic Details
Gold mirrored acrylic is a type of plastic material that is coated with a thin layer of gold-coloured reflective coating on one side, giving it a shiny, reflective appearance similar to that of a traditional mirror. This type of acrylic is often used in a variety of applications, including home décor, signage, and even automotive parts. Perspex® Acrylic Sheets are half the weight of glass, but double the strength, so you can rest assured that they will be a safer alternative to a glass mirror. All of Perspex® Mirrored Acrylic comes with the industry's toughest and most durable backing to protect your mirror.
Gold mirrored acrylic has a unique and eye-catching appearance. The gold reflective coating gives it a warm, luxurious look that is often used in wedding signage and high-end interior design. It can be used to create statement pieces, such as mirrored walls or furniture, or as an accent to complement other materials and textures.
All of our Mirrored Acrylics are versatile and weather resistant, so they make for a great addition outside of the home too as an acrylic garden mirror. They are UV resistant, so you don’t have to worry about them discolouring from sun rays or harsh weather conditions. They are also easy to clean and maintain with some warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth.

For installation, we suggest using a hard board and an adhesive designed to be used with mirrors, the adhesive must be non-solvent and applied evenly to the surface with a roller. See our mirror fitting guide to learn more. Some distortion may still occur due to the nature of acrylic mirrors, the distortion of the acrylic mirror is a characteristic of this product and is not a manufacturing issue.
Using an adhesive on the acrylic mirror sheet and using an MDF backing is the most common choice for both ease and simplicity, providing a professional, smooth finish and most importantly, a secure fit.
Please note that the larger the mirror the higher the chance of a distorted image being reflected, to avoid this we recommend fixing to an 18mm MDF backing and ensuring the mirror is installed fully flush to the MDF or a completely smooth wall. We strongly advise that you use a trained professional to install your mirrors in order to maintain high-quality reflection.
