    I see no reason why you couldn't. However--it would be very difficult to cut mirrors to fit and I wouldn't want to keep them clean!

    I haven't but I think it's a great idea. How about using mirror tiles? I think they're about 12" square.

    I imagine it can be done, but, the cleaning would be a bear. How about tin or some other reflective surface that is more easily kept clean and is less fragile?

    I've never done that, but I think it would be overkill. It would be to much. And very hard to keep clean.

    I haven't used mirrors , but my cabinet upper doors have green plastic inserts w/ a decoration in the plastic, so we bought some matching sheets of it and cut it for the backsplash , It looks real nice and is so easy to clean.

    I had a relative who did and it was a NIGHTMARE. Unless you never cook or have live in help do not do this. Everytime even the faucet was used cleaning and buffing was required. It ended up looking like a dirty mess.

    Years ago there used to be a window over the kitchen sink, but due to a room being added on, it was replaced w/ a mirror, so my mother could watch out the window behind her as she stood at the sink. That part was very nice, but the lower parts under cabinets to counter were awful, hard to get at, pain to clean. She decided the one over the sink was the only one worth keeping.

    if you think you’d like it, go for it. Years ago, perhaps in the 70’s? mirrored backsplash was a fad. I’m a fan, if installed by a mirror company who templates the space and has no seems except for the corners. Even the outlets would get a mirrored faceplate. Dirt is dirt. Some surfaces show it more than others. There’s glass cleaning cloths now that require nothing more than water (Nano, Campanelli)... A 10” high, 3 sided, standing grease splatter shield helps. Mirror add light. It adds bling, IMO. If it doubles the sight of clutter, simply edit, reduce, and organize so that the reflection is aesthetically pleasing. Perhaps try a door mirror sideways, to get a feel for what’d be like? Before investing

    Sorry to be so late in answering your question, we have a mirror above the kitchen sink. That wall used to be a back wall to the house and there was a window there before the extension was added on & the previous owner filled in that area with a mirror. It is awful and hard to keep clean, let alone to get reach. Cooking and steam really do a number on it, the stove is the width of a dishwasher away. If this were my decision,, it would be no mirrors in the kitchen. Best to you.
