If you want your kitchen to stand out among modern interiors, there’s a fun accent that you should consider: mirror backsplash. We know what you’re thinking: “Mirrors? As backsplash? Isn’t that a bit tacky?” And the answer is ‘no.’ The trick is knowing how to incorporate it seamlessly into your interior design. Here’s how you can incorporate mirror backsplash into your modern kitchen and take things up a notch.
Don’t Leave Your Counters Empty
The first necessity when installing a mirror backsplash is to keep your counters decorated. Leaving them completely empty will leave the mirror with little to reflect. You’ll simply get a reflection of your already-empty countertop. That’s not very exciting. In fact, it’s twice as boring as an empty counter without mirror backsplash.
Instead, keep some decor or storage containers on the counter. Some neat or artsy canisters with sugar, oats, or flour in them are a nice way to create functional decor. You could also keep flowers, cookbooks, spices, or cooking oils on display. No matter what you put on your counter, if it’s kept tidy, it will look twice as good when reflected back.
Pair It with Dark Colors
What’s the best thing to pair with mirror backsplash? Dark, rich colors. Imagine wine red, dandelion yellow, or navy blue. These colors will reflect back into the mirror, keeping the backsplash from looking overwhelming. Additionally, the light the backsplash reflects will brighten up those colors and balance them nicely.
If you want to really make your backsplash and color combo pop, add in brighter accent colors. A navy blue countertop with a vase of baby blue flowers will really stand out.
Keep Mirror Backsplash Clean
The next step to keeping mirror backsplash looking great is to keep it looking clean. Sure, we get it, fingerprints on mirror looks awful. However, if you simply incorporate wiping it down into your kitchen cleaning routine, you won’t have to worry about prints. The beautiful shine of your backsplash will brighten up your kitchen, make your workspace feel twice as big, and give the place a modern twist.
Consider Under-Cabinet Lighting
Want to make your mirror backsplash really stand out and provide a lot of use to your kitchen? Consider getting some under-cabinet lighting. Mirror backsplash is really fantastic for lighting up your kitchen. Even better is if you put the lighting right above them. Those lights will reflect right back onto the counters with twice the power. That makes it easy to see what you’re doing, even if you’re making a midnight snack.
