A quick and easy way to enhance your kitchen is with a mirror. Not only does it increase the views and light in this hard-working room, but it brings in more of your style and personality. The vast majority of our mirrors will be very happy in a steamy kitchen, as they’re lacquered or varnished, but if you’re in any doubt, please just contact us first to check.
Where to position your kitchen mirror?
A mirror positioned above a sink creates the illusion of a window, creating an extra view and bouncing light back into the room. Mirrors on cupboard doors can create a glass cabinet effect, without needing to keep the contents organised. While a dramatic gold overmantel mirror against a brick wall in a kitchen makes a great focal point.
Kitchen mirror ideas
Consider the age of your home, and either contrast or complement – such as with a metal-framed mirror in an industrial style kitchen, or a minimalist all-glass mirror in a modern or period home. Or, why not make a statement with a beautiful Venetian mirror? The contrast of baroque decadence in this utilitarian space work wonders in just about any kitchen. Juxtaposing shapes works well too. Try a large round or curvy mirror above the sink or between tall units to offset straight lines.
Creating kitchen views
A row of beautiful copper pans, a collection of chinaware, or a vintage plate rack will look stunning reflected and doubled-up in a kitchen mirror. Bring the elegance of a connecting room into the kitchen, reflected in a large landscape mirror. Or add depth and interest with a tall mirror tilted to reflect a feature light.
