20 Beautiful Kitchens Incorporating Mirrors

Mirrors are one of the most versatile décor items you can use, and they add beauty, elegance and many other decorating benefits to any room, including in the kitchen. While most people may think a mirror is best used in a bedroom, living room, bathroom or foyer, a kitchen can be the perfect room to incorporate the beauty of a mirror. While small kitchens can benefit from the openness and lighting a mirror can give, for large kitchens, mirrors can enhance the look of a piece or art, a spectacular view outside your kitchen window, or the color on a focal point wall. Here are some other ideas on how to incorporate mirrors into your kitchen.

Mirrored backsplash

Not all kitchens are large, bright, and airy. Some kitchens are small and dingy, but you can help to bring some faux light into the room by adding a mirrored backsplash to your wall. There is specially designed glass that is meant for kitchens, due to its resistance to heat and moisture. Before installing a mirrored backsplash, be sure it is the type of glass that is safe to use in kitchens. Whether you like the basic smooth, flat mirrored look, beveled, or bricked layout, the glass is easy to clean and adds a unique décor touch.

Large wall hanging mirror

Some kitchens are designed with an oddly shaped wall or wall that doesn’t fit any specific type of furniture. You may consider this negative space that you aren’t sure what to do with it. A decorative wall-hanging mirror can give the wall a sense of function, as well as it can add visual square footage to the room, which can be an added bonus. It can also help reflect light from another area of the kitchen to brighten the wall or area that was not getting much attention on its own. If your kitchen is on the extra small side, an entire wall can be mirrored to really open up the room and give it a much larger look and feel, especially if the mirror reflects the square footage of an adjacent room, such as the living room or dining room. This can give the illusion that the rooms merge together.

Other types of mirroring

Mirrors don’t have to be strictly used on the wall. You can use mirrors in other forms, such as your lighting. Hang mirrored hanging lights over your kitchen bar or island to add an elegant touch to your lighting. A single, paned mirror behind the sink can give the impression that there’s a window there, which is a great illusion for kitchens that lack in windows and natural light.
