Here are a few tips & tricks when hanging a mirror in your kitchen!

Above the Sink: So you don’t have a window over your kitchen sink? No problem just install a mirror to create an illusion of a traditional window.

Mirrored Kitchen Backsplash: This makes for a stunning kitchen that doesn’t require a ridiculous amount of upkeep. However, if you do choose this project make sure your contractor is installing tempered glass! Regular mirrored glass can easily crack from heat exposure or an accidental strike with a heavy pan or object.

On a Shelf: You can place a mirror on top of an open shelf and tilt it slightly downwards. That way it can reflect the room’s design elements such as light fixtures, a beautiful backsplash or cabinetry instead of a view of the plain ceiling.

On Cabinetry: Another option is to install mirrored cabinetry. This is very unique and will reflect light, make the kitchen appear larger.

On Walls: You can have mirrors lining paneled walls to give a closed-off kitchen the appearance of being larger if opening up your kitchen isn’t in your budget.
