The Advantages of a Mirrored Credenza in the Kitchen
A design and original credenza with the mirror
Fancy an original kitchen splashback full of assets? It is time to look into the case of the mirror credenza, an option as decorative as practical. Relatively unrecognized or poorly judged, this coating like no other displays a nice list of advantages!
A designer credenza specializing in small spaces
Like any reflective surface, the mirror credenza reflects light and effectively enlarges the space. A decorator’s tip that allows you to easily boost the brightness in a room that is too dark or visually gain a few square meters in a small kitchen! The icing on the decor, the mirror splashback is also frankly design without doing too much. Contemporary and minimalist, it avoids the overdose of tiles and joints, patterns or colors, since it simply reflects what surrounds it. We say banco.
A mirror credenza in two versions
We tell you mirror credenza, you think mirror and you’re right … among others. Since in decoration, when we talk about mirror splashback for the kitchen, we include two different types of coverings: the mirror, cut to measure by a mirror maker, and stainless steel mirror effect, sold in plates to stick. The advantage? Each one has its assets to adapt the mirror splashback to the different decoration issues. The real mirror can adopt a modern or old-fashioned finish, it is aesthetic, easy to maintain and ages well. On the other hand, beware of laying, glued or by means of ice tabs: it is heavy and can break, it is better to call on real pros. As for mirror-effect stainless steel, it is easier to find and often cheaper, lighter and easier to install, unbreakable and hygienic … but it ages less well this time, since lime and scratches end up marking it.
A splashback specialist in renovation
Another specificity of the mirror splashback and a major asset for those who decide to redo the kitchen without breaking everything, it is ideal for renovations! It can be placed directly against a damaged wall, a blistered paint or an old tile, to revamp the budget-controlled kitchen. The only detail to watch out for is the verticality of the wall to be covered: if it is not straight, the thickness of the mirror splashback can encroach on the depth of the worktop. In all cases, the mirror splashback effectively protects the wall from water, stains and impacts, while resisting rust. And all for a reasonable price.
Maintenance of the mirror credenza
Eyebrows rise at the mere mention of the maintenance of the mirror backsplash? True and false. The coating actually marks more than tiles, since splashes and fingerprints are more visible. He therefore calls for more frequent cleaning to remain impeccable. On the other hand, the cleaning in question is very simple: a swipe of the cloth is generally enough, and goodbye the problem of embedded tile joints. Note that the real mirror is even easier to clean than stainless steel, and that white vinegar does wonders, as on any glass surface!
