A mirror door comprising a door with opposed faces, one of which has a recess therein, and a mirror seated within the recess. The mirror has a light reflective front face and a rear face disposed against the door, and is cooperatively dimensioned with the recess to locate its periphery adjacent the periphery of the recess. The mirror is secured in the recess of the door by two adhesives. The first rigid adhesive is disposed between the peripheral portions of the rear face of the mirror and the door recess, and the second adhesive is disposed between the mirror and door inwardly of the peripheral portions. The first adhesive is relatively rigid in comparison to the second adhesive to mount the mirror on the door in a fixed position, and the second adhesive is relatively flexible to accommodate differential expansion between the door and mirror and to dampen impact forces acting between the door and mirror. A method for making a mirror door is also provided.
