MIRROR IN THE KITCHEN: INTRODUCTION

Could a mirror in the kitchen be one too many or could it be a brilliant way to bring life to your environment? In this article we will try to discover together the usefulness of mirrors in a room like the kitchen.

On the one hand they might seem useless, but with their classic reflective characteristic they are able to convey light to make rooms more spacious, deep and bright. So, especially for those who find themselves with a small kitchen , you might discover the innovative use of the mirror in the kitchen!

INNOVATIVE DESIGN ELEMENT

Yes yes you got it right, a real mirror. The mirror has always been used as an object to satisfy our vanity but it has also been rediscovered as an elegant and refined piece of furniture. In past centuries it was used to amplify space and light, today it is used in an eclectic way in furniture just like in these kitchens. The mirror creates the suggestion of a doubled space which, although coinciding with a “non-place” in which the person looking at himself is not actually located, is nevertheless connected to the other spaces around him.

Have you noticed the mirrors in these kitchens? They all have one common denominator, they’re all antiquated. The antiqued kitchen mirror can be purchased easily in any glassware, it costs a little more and on the market there are many types of antiqued mirrors. If you have to buy one someday, ask to see a sample book so you can get a clear idea in your head. Otherwise, if you love DIY, you can try your hand at mirror antiquing. I have found very few articles on the net that briefly explain the basic steps to follow. However, I understand that this process involves the use of harsh chemicals such as muriatic acid so if you don’t feel like trying your hand at this, do as I do and prefer to go to the glassworks.

MIRROR WITH WOODEN FRAME

If the kitchen seems too cold it can be an ideal solution. Wood helps to make any room warmer. Big or small, resting on a shelf or hanging on the wall doesn’ t matter, in this case size doesn’t matter.

It’s all about choosing a mirror that you would normally see more of in a living room or bedroom. The kitchen will immediately seem more welcoming and lived in, try it to believe.

MIRROR BEHIND THE SINK

A little trick for the more daring: instead of tiles behind the sink you can place a mirror.

Depending on the style of the kitchen, you will also have to choose the surface, but the best effect is certainly obtained with mirrors that are a little antiqued because they better hide water splashes and traces of limescale.
