I want to fix the black area in the mirror. I used Glossy BSDF to make it and I'm using cycle render. And I want to know how to hide the cyan planes from the scene and keep their effect.

The black area...

  • $\begingroup$ If it is mirror which is the question about in the left corner inside of cupboard then check modifiers for it (particulalry, Subsurf) and show the modifiers' stack. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Jul 10 '16 at 17:53
  • $\begingroup$ It was without modifiers but I add subsurf and the black area has rounded it $\endgroup$ – Ahmed Nezar Jul 10 '16 at 18:01

Starting with a scene like this:

As to why the round shape on your mirror.

If your mirror is rectangular you'll be gaining anything by adding a subsurf modifier to it. Subsurf modifier's default behavior is to round out geometry by interpolation:

If you must have the subsurf modifier change the interpolation from Catmull-Clark to Simple.
