What struck us strange about this property was that it was a beautiful period piece but with the darkest and smallest kitchen considering it's size and potential. We had a quite a few constrictions on the extension but in the end we managed to provide a large bright kitchen/dinning area with direct access to a beautiful garden and keeping the 'new ' in harmony with the existing building. We also expanded a small cellar into a large and functional Laundry room with a cloakroom bathroom.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Fall for foxed mirror glassAnother take on mirrored glass is the antiqued version seen in this kitchen. It has the same benefits as a pristine mirrored backsplash, but the interesting surface puts the attention on the backsplash rather than just what it’s reflecting. It’s worth considering this option if you’re fitting a contemporary kitchen in a period home, as it’ll make a subtle link between the two.
Reflect a littleMirrors are great for creating a feeling of light and space, and the wipeable surface is perfect for a kitchen. If you prefer a more muted finish than a standard mirror, choose antiqued glass for your backsplash. This wall of patinated glass brightens up the kitchen, while the dappled texture gives it a softer feel.
