Karen,

We're looking for a wardrobe door mirror for our 21. Is your mirror glass, is it glued on or does it replace the wood panel?

Thanks!

Gary

Mine is plexiglass. It's light enough to mount with double-side tape and it is much safer than glass.
I got it at a glass shop.
Keep in mind that you will need light on the face of the person using the mirror. I get light from the bath and another across the aisle. My buddy had to mount a light above the mirror so his wife could do makeup.

Here's one of our build photos.
Counters are Formica 3688-58 Madras Indian Slate. Black trim.

It is the stock mirror that ETI installed in the wardrobe. All I know is that it is NOT glass but some kind of synthetic something-or-other as one must be careful not to use chemicals to clean it. I don't think it's glued as it flexes when pressed. It is framed onto the door panel.

Mirrors are great as visual area "expanders" and light reflectors.

Stock mirrors? Never saw THAT on our build sheet.

Thanks for the info. I have a couple of rolls of VHB tape and I'm ready to use it after a trip to the glass shop for a plexiglass mirror!

The mirror on the wardrobe was standard in the 15A in 2013 (before ETI changed the location of the fridge). It appears that there is only one in the 19 now and that could depend on configuration of the cabinetry?

Hi Don/Teresa. I really like the look of the stainless stove and hood. You've had yours for awhile. Are you happy with it? My worry would be rust, particularly on the stove burner cover if it gets a scratch. .

Thanks.

I have had the stainless stove in both my 19's, to match the sink. No rust issues, I did not get the hood. Remember you can not attach via magnet to the hood as you can with the stock metal hood.

Thanks, Jim. Can you please comment on why you decided against the hood?

I liked the cleaner look without it.I also reversed the stove and sink so that the stove was closer to the door, the hood would have been a head knocker.
