How to install a mirror with adhesive or silicone sealant?
If your mirror is not surrounded by a frame, which is preferable in the bathroom, you can easily use an adhesive or silicone sealant specially designed to attach heavy loads to the bathroom wall. To do this, first clean and degrease the wall and the back of the mirror. Then take the dimensions of the mirror and transfer them with a pencil to the wall in the exact place where the mirror will be attached. Use a spirit level and a square to make sure the marks are level. Note that the ideal height of the mirror is determined by aligning the average eye height of the adults to be focused with its center.

How do I attach a mirror to an adhesive hook without drilling?
If your mirror is small, lightweight and you have two-point wall hooks, you can also use self-adhesive wall hooks. However, they must support the weight of the mirror. If your mirror is very light, you can also hang it from a two-pin hook attached with wire, nylon or string. To do this, use a spirit level, attach the hooks horizontally to a clean wall mount and measure the axial distance between the mirror supports. All that's left to do is hang the mirror on the wall.
