I know it's common to use mirrors in small rooms to make them feel more spacious, I haven't seen any builds intentionally doing this. I was thinking of using mirrors in the face of upper cabinets... Thoughts?

Contemplate all the potential for flying glass shards….

Contemplate having to look at your own mug when personal appearance takes a back seat to having a good time.

Contemplate that they would mainly reflect each other.

I have one on the inside on my closet door. Don’t really want to have glass flying around inside in an accident.

Some would say It doesn't matter because everything in the van is a potential hazard in a crash. But, my thoughts are that it would add quite a bit of unnecessary extra hazard in a crash.
I repurposed some RV cabinet doors to use for my overhead cabinets (when I build them) and found one door with a mirror. I'm using it behind the shower, so hopefully it will be blocked from decapitating someone in a crash.
I propped it up so you can see. Although, I'm not doing it for light or illusion of space. It's just to have a mirror. My wife brought a makeup mirror thingy last time. I figured if it was part of a a door, it would be one less thing to pack.

I have a small glass mirror over my medicine cabinet (It's my second one as the first ended up in a million pieces all over the van when the cabinet latch failed and the door swung open in a turn).:confused: I don't think I'd want large glass mirrors on the upper cabinets. It's too easy to forget to fully close the cabinets, or have a failure of the latch like I did and you'll have one heck of a mess.

Hmm yes all great points, definitely foresee forgetting to latch them closed and having them fly open. Will likely abandon this idea 😂

It is pretty easy to install safety film on glass mirrors. Keeps the whole thing intact, although it still may break.
