A mirror over a worktop can look as a death sentence for a housewife, however, this finishing way has its own advantages.
Of course, you will have to take care of this mirror and clean it very attentively, but let’s admit that it’s indeed not so difficult. Filth on a mirror is noticed immediately, while fat and filth on more variegated tiles can be gathered for a longer time – they’re practically impossible to see, therefore, cleaning becomes much more complicated.
If this part of a kitchen is in a right place, a mirror will reflect not only the most beautiful interior elements, but also will expand space and reflect the huge part of light – it is as an additional window. Of course, it’s better not to overload a worktop with cruets or tea boxes – it will only create a double scrap-heap because everything will be reflected in a mirror.
Indeed, a mirror in a kitchen plays the same role as a glass, the only difference is that glass reflects space less and a variety of glass is more diverse. In addition, a mirrored backsplash can also be framed or decomposed into various forms in a subtle way.
P.s. I’m immediately sorry for photos. Most of them didn’t match my flavor, however, it was completely difficult to find good photos exactly with a mirror which is used in a kitchen (or I don’t know how to look for).
A mirror here most probably rather harms than helps. I don’t imagine how it looks like when soup is being boiled in a pot and steam rises straight to a hood; I have no doubts that marks remain on a mirror.
