More often than not I support creating new dimension in a room with an oversized mirror. But, here, when it comes to the kitchen, I'm just not sure. It's a rare occasion that my kitchen is as neat as the one pictured above. After all, it's a workspace where messes happen and experiments are done. And I wonder if a mirror would make the room seem a little too formal (or remind me of those breakfast dishes sitting in the sink)...
