I was wondering if anyone had used a Mirrored splashback in their kitchen?
I have noticed that it seems very current and is all the latest kitchen magazines, and think it would look great in my kitchen which is white stone on white gloss.
The only concern I have is with maintenance and longevity. Will it be hard to maintain?
Any advise would be appreciated.

We're going smokey mirror in ours, which will possibly be majority white.
I originally wanted mirror but DH didn't like the idea, don't as me why, but anyway.... I don't think it will be any harder to maintain than a regular glass splashback, if anything it will show it less given it has a reflection of whatever nice view you've got in the background to take the attention away from what may be on it.
They're easy to clean, the same as a bathroom mirror

Yes I am getting a tinted smokey mirror too combined with 2 pac natural white and mocha wood grain laminate it will look awesome. I have been in a lot of new expensive townhouses and they are using mirror splashbacks. Go for it. It looks better than the glass because it reflects.
Alot of cafes have custom mirrors with printed writing on them ala Laurent patisserie. They look brilliant. GO FOR IT!

The main reason why we are having a mirrored splashback is due to size of the site. We have a long narrow block and the mirror will create the necessary illusion of space.
