A recent addition to our contemporary photo gallery is a white kitchen designed by Darren Morgan. The kitchen was made for a family across the pond, but if features a useful idea for parents anywhere: mirrored cabinet inserts.
The mirrored cabinets in this kitchen allow the homeowners to keep an eye on their children even when they aren't facing them. This was something the homeowner's requested, as Darren Morgan outlined in his design statement: "The client wanted to supervise the children's homework while cooking, so the mirrored panels provide a handy reverse angle view of the island when Mum is using the ovens and consumables zone; great for catching mischief when Mum's back is turned!"
Yes, the mirrored cabinets idea might be a little too "big brother" for some, but it's not a bad way to keep an eye on little ones (or mischievous bigger ones) when your back is turned in the kitchen.
Whether you like the mirrors or you don't, the rest of the kitchen has some great design details, which you can see in our contemporary kitchen gallery. To go directly to one of the four photos of this kitchen, click on the links below:
