Quick Kitchen "Reno": Hang a Mirror

Want to change things up in your kitchen without doing an all-out renovation? One drastic change you can make with very little means is adding a large, framed mirror.

Hanging a mirror accomplishes a few things:

  • It reflects light and opens things up, almost in the sense of adding a window!
  • It reflects movement, so when you're bustling around the kitchen it feels even more lively.
  • It creates a feeling of greater space, almost like you're looking into an additional room in your home.
  • A large or intricate frame can even add architectural detail to a plain-jane space.

The kitchen pictured is one from a fabulous roundup of white kitchens over at House Beautiful. And for more on mirrors in kitchens, take a look at:
