Ordering frame samples before finalizing your Add A Frame® selection is the best way to ensure you’ll like your chosen material and color. Plus, at just $1.00 a piece, it makes sense to “try out” the colors and styles you’re torn between before making a final decision.

So, you made a smart, conscientious decision: you ordered samples. But now they’ve arrived and you’re still having trouble deciding. Now what? Don’t panic if it isn’t immediately obvious which mirror frame is the right fit for your mirror. It might take a little while to decide — and that’s OK!

Here are some things you can do with your samples to help make your decision a little easier:
  • Adhere them to your mirror. Rather than just holding each sample up and trying to visualize how it would look as a full frame, stick your samples directly on your mirror and observe how you react when you come into your bathroom and see it. If you have more than one sample, put them on opposite sides of the mirror so you can imagine the full effect of each.
  • Observe in various lighting. If your bathroom has a lot of natural light, observe how you feel about your frame selections at different times of the day, depending on how the light hits.
  • Get a second opinion. Poll the other members of your household or bring in a friend to see what they think. While you want to be careful to stay true to your own opinion first, it’s always good to seek other insights.
  • Give it time. Live with your samples for a few days and see how you feel. You might be surprised to find that one sample grows on you while another no longer feels right.
